Mexican-American Author Finds Inspiration In Family,...

Growing up with a Mexican father and an American mother, author Luis Alberto Urrea often felt like there was a border wall running through his family's San Diego apartment. "The kitchen was the United States; the living room was Mexico," Urrea says.

Every now and then we encounter a new book that we're so excited about we want to shout it from the rooftops, so we have this special designation to distinguish it from the rest:
March V.I.B...
by Uzodinma Iweala

Speak No Evil  is a timely and heartbreaking coming-of-age story, shared between two privileged Harvard friends who are struggling to express their truths against expectations that seem to define them. Niru, a Nigerian immigrant aspiring to be a doctor, can’t tell his religious, conservative parents he is gay. Meredith, daughter of D.C.’s political elite, is unable to speak out about what really happened in an alley outside a bar one night. Their stories are in the hands of critically acclaimed author, Uzodinma Iweala, who exposes the realities of our society in this beautifully written compact piece of contemporary fiction!” -- Stephanie Coleman, Director of Buying
On shelves now
by Lisa Halliday

"Lisa Halliday's  Asymmetry  begins with a clever Alice in Wonderland parallel, and justifiably so--both main characters, Mary Alice (our obvious Alice avatar) and Amar (our perhaps less obvious Alice avatar), find themselves lost inside their own respective rabbit holes. Mary Alice's is her relationship with a much older, much-decorated novelist. Amar's is an overnight detainment by immigration officials in Heathrow. Mary Alice and Amar may have seemingly little in common, but the firm, balletic hand Halliday uses to draw them sucked me into each of their obsessions like they were my own. I fell headlong into Mary Alice's MLB play-by-plays, her readings from the likes of Camus, Dickens, Genet, Joyce, and Levi, and the myriad songs her lover, Ezra, recommends to her. (In fact, I made a playlist of every one he mentions to keep the book with me after finishing it.) Likewise, I found myself in thrall to Amar's fears for his brother and extended family back in Iraq.  Asymmetry  is, in the end, an affirmation of a life's inevitable lopsidedness. I loved it for its refusal to moralize, and I love Halliday for refusing to impose order on our orderless world. This is a debut to savor." -- Lainie Formby, Associate Book Buyer
