Beautiful Freedom

March 25, 2023

The title of Farah Jasmine Griffin’s new essay collection inspires this selection which includes a novel about formidable female characters out West; the latest from Jeannette Walls, an historical fiction; a much-anticipated debut from a remarkable Korean American writer; and a gorgeous novel about a lonely Irish man seeking freedom from his past. All these characters have longings, pursuing liberty in compelling, sometimes haunting ways.

Happy reading,
Melanie Fleishman
