AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ´´Ambitious and brilliantly written.´´--Jane Smiley, The Washington Post ´´Outstanding...[the] literary love child of Jonathan Franzen and Anne Tyler.´´--The Guardian ´´Everything about this brilliant debut cuts deep: the humor, the wisdom, the pathos. Claire Lombardo writes like she´s been doing it for a hundred years, and like she´s been alive for a thousand.´´--Rebecca Makkai, author of The Great Believers When Marilyn Connolly and David Sorenson fall in love in the 1970s, they are blithely ignorant of all that´s to come. By 2016, their four radically different daughters are each in a state of unrest: Wendy, widowed young, soothes herself with booze and younger men; Violet, a litigator-turned-stay-at-home-mom, battles anxiety and self-doubt when the darkest part of her past resurfaces; Liza, a neurotic and newly tenured professor, finds herself pregnant with a baby she´s not sure she wants by a man she´s not sure she loves; and Grace, the dawdling youngest daughter, begins living a lie that no one in her family even suspects. Above it all, the daughters share the lingering fear that they will never find a love quite like their parents´. As the novel moves through the tumultuous year following the arrival of Jonah Bendt--given up by one of the daughters in a closed adoption fifteen years before--we are shown the rich and varied tapestry of the Sorensons´ past: years marred by adolescence, infidelity, and resentment, but also the transcendent moments of joy that make everything else worthwhile. Spanning nearly half a century, and set against the quintessential American backdrop of Chicago and its prospering suburbs, Lombardo´s debut explores the triumphs and burdens of love, the fraught tethers of parenthood and sisterhood, and the baffling mixture of affection, abhorrence, resistance, and submission we feel for those closest to us. In painting this luminous portrait of a family´s becoming, Lombardo joins the ranks of writers such as Celeste Ng, Elizabeth Strout, and Jonathan Franzen as visionary chroniclers of our modern lives.
A debut poetry collection from a writer whose vivid verse explores the connections and relationships that make us human Sometimes I like to feel sexy. Sometimes I don´t. Sometimes I like to be very plain. Invisible almost, hiding in plain sight. I want to hide and to be found. In the spirit of the biblical Song of Solomon, Sylvie Baumgartel´s Song of Songs takes the subjects of love and worship, and brings them to the desperate, wild spaces of domestic life. With a voice at once precise and oneiric, Baumgartel explores the landscapes of sex and desire, power and submission, in this groundbreaking book-length poem that forces us to question the bounds of devotion. An ambitious and vivid debut, Song of Songs is a work of breathtaking honesty, couched in language few of us are brave enough to speak aloud.
´´Imagine if Jane Austen got angry & you´ll have some idea of how explosive these works are´´ (John Freeman). Since the publication of My Brilliant Friend, Elena Ferrante has gained admirers among authors-Jhumpa Lahiri, Elizabeth Strout, Claire Messud, to name a few-and criti- James Wood, John Freeman, Eugenia Williamson, for example. But her most resounding success has been with readers, who have discovered in Ferrante a writer who speaks with great power and beauty of the mysteries of belonging, love, family, and friendship. In this third Neapolitan novel, Elena and Lila have become women. Both have attempted pushing against the walls of a prison that would have seen them living a life of misery, ignorance and submission. They are afloat on the great sea of opportunities that opened up during the nineteen-seventies. Yet they are still very much bound to each other by a strong, unbreakable bond.
