March into Must-Read Novels
With spring blooming, the days are longer and the books even stronger. We have some truly unforgettable and wholly original novels coming out this month, and we can't wait to talk about them with you!
The Book Everyone Is Talking About
A voice not to be missed, Kaitlyn Greenidge brings insight, clarity, and historical context to everything she writes, whether in her must-follow newsletter and Twitter account, as features editor at Harper's Bazaar, or in her rave-review-earning books. Her new novel, Libertie, is one of the most anticipated books of the year, named so by the New York Times, O, The Oprah Magazine, the Washington Post, and at least a dozen more publications!

Already chosen by booksellers as the #1 Indie Next Pick for April and as the selection for three national book clubs, Libertie will be available March 30. It's an unforgettable story, set just after the Civil War, about what "freedom" actually looked like for Black women.

Here's just some of what people are saying about Libertie. Preorder your copy now and get in on the conversation!

"One of the most thoughtful and amazingly beautiful books I’ve read . . . Greenidge is a master storyteller." —Jacqueline Woodson, author of Red at the Bone

“Pure brilliance.” —Mira Jacob, author of Good Talk

"Genius . . . This pièce de résistance is so immaculately orchestrated that each character, each setting, and each sentence sings." —Publishers Weekly, starred and boxed review
The International Bestseller, Now in Paperback
Let Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai introduce you to The Mountains Sing, one of 2020's best books—now available in a gorgeous paperback edition. Steeped in the language and traditions of Việt Nam and grounded by Quế Mai's own experience during the Việt Nam War, this sweeping novel brings to life the human costs of conflict, while showing us the true power of kindness and hope.

The Mountains Sing is the perfect novel for book clubs, and we've created this Book Club Kit full of the proverbs and music of Việt Nam, along with an historical timeline and essays and insight from Quế Mai.

"[An] absorbing, stirring novel . . . that, in more than one sense, remedies history." —The New York Times Book Review
"The Essence of Memory Itself"

"The human mind is geared towards creating stories and creating narratives that make sense . . . beginning, middle, end. But that's not the essence of memory itself."

Layla AlAmmar spoke with NPR's Weekend Edition about her transfixing novel, Silence Is a Sense, and its examination of the complex crossroads of memory, revolution, loss, and safety. A refugee’s escape from her war-torn Syrian homeland to an unnamed British city has traumatized her into silence, and her only connection to the world is the magazine column she writes under the pseudonym "the Voiceless," where she tries to explain the refugee experience without sensationalizing it—or revealing anything about herself.

As her boundaries begin to shift and the community comes calling, Silence Is a Sense reminds us just how fundamental human connection is to survival.

"Lyrical, moving, and revealing." Tracy Chevalier, bestselling author of Girl with a Pearl Earring
