What We’re Reading – January 2016

The Portable Veblen

The Portable Veblen by Elizabeth McKenzie: “An exuberant, one-of-a-kind novel about love and family, war and nature, new money and old values by a brilliant New Yorker contributor.”

Shame and Wonder

Shame and Wonder by David Searcy: “The twenty-one essays in David Searcy’s debut collection are captivating, daring—and completely unlike anything else you’ve read before. Forging connections between the sublime and the mundane, this is a work of true grace, wisdom, and joy.”

Mr. Splitfoot

Mr. Splitfoot by Samantha Hunt: “A contemporary gothic from an author in the company of Kelly Link and Aimee Bender, Mr. Splitfoot tracks two women in two times as they march toward a mysterious reckoning.”
