A Stone is Most Previous Where it Belongs

"A window into topics ranging from efforts to maintain Uyghur culture in the face of suffocating propaganda in Chinese state media through to the opportunities and agonies of exile.

What We're Reading

Bad Cree

"Grief, family, & love provide a perfect backdrop for the horrors within Johns' Bad Cree. This mesmerizing debut novel is full of creeping suspense and thrills that make it nearly impossible to put down. Bonus points for an almost exclusively female cast!"

The School for Good Mothers

"Chan has served up a truly chilling dystopia that feels just-around-the-corner. Orwell meets Atwood in a near future where 'bad mothers' are rounded up, institionalized, and 'reformed' by the state. Aaaahhh!!"
- Mia

-- Chelsea

Don't Know Tough

"If Harry Crews had written Friday Night Lights it would look something like this. Cranor knows 'tough' indeed. Throw expectations out the window. This isn't a 'football' book."
-- Mike

A Touch of Jen

"An Instagram-fueled obsessive fantasy turns two millennials into monsters. Sharp & funny, Morgan slowly ensnares you in a web of psychedelic horror...this book features some of the most delightfully unlikable characters I've read. Repulsive, deviant, & wonderful!!"
-- Gretchen
