In Lydia Millet’s wonderfully comedic, poignant new novel, mermaids, kidnappers, and mercenaries hijack a tropical vacation in this genre-bending sendup of the American honeymoon. Pulitzer Prize finalist Millet delivers a thrilling piece of fabulist fiction, comically deflating clear-cut distinctions between truth, fiction, and moral high ground.
Johanna Skibsrud’s intricate, ambitious new novel brims with insight and emotion on the ill effects of war, the repercussions of betrayal, and the elliptical nature of time and memory. Skibsrud, winner of Canada’s Giller Prize, follows the lives of several people affected by the sudden disappearance of World War I veteran Arthur Sinclair during the 1930’s Bonus Army war. The novel examines an act of personal betrayal against a sweeping backdrop of historical conflict. “Brilliant. . . . Compelling portraits of human beings struggling to do the right thing under ambiguous moral circumstances… This wholly realized book has everything I crave in a work of fiction.” --Tim O Brien, author of The Things They Carried
