Emotional Disturbances

August 19, 2023

This week’s characters are often on the brink: a housewife dangerously weary of her life; a Dublin family hanging by a thread; two novels about being Muslim in America, struggling with identity; and essays that elucidate the late capitalistic world we live in. These five tremendously talented writers have mastered the art of bringing personal stories, true and fictional, splendidly alive.

Happy reading,
