This #PubDay brings a poignant tale of survival in WWII, a pregnant woman in a haunted post-9/11 Manhattan, and a comic-political drama.
THE YELLOW BIRD SINGS by Jennifer Rosner
“Memoirist and award-winning children’s author Rosner challenges the Holocaust with a touch of magic (the yellow bird appears throughout), clarifying a dangerous time and place even as she offers a vibrant, affecting portrait of the mother-daughter relationship.”–Library Journal, starred review
THE EXHIBITION OF PERSEPHONE Q by Jessi Jezewska Stevens
“A young woman wanders the nighttime streets of post-9/11 New York in search of answers to the mysterious disappearance of herself…luminous prose that captures the essence of a place in the middle of its most defining transformation. A stellar debut.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
BARN 8 by Deb Olin Unferth
“This entertaining, satisfying genre turn shows off Unferth’s range, and readers will be delighted by the characters’ earnest crusade.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
“While this kind of politically charged rhetoric could risk coming off as pedantic, Unferth’s writing never feels patronizing—more than anything, it’s galvanizing, especially these days when ‘activism [is] less revolution, more capitalism with a conscience.’ If this novel isn’t a movement, it has enough heart to start one.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
