From One Extreme to Another

April 8, 2023

These five works of fiction could not be more different. Moods go from light and lively, to threatening and murderous. There is high anxiety, spirits in Denmark and the Caribbean, and a young man’s deportation to his homeland in South Korea. Two are Brooklyn-set. Romantic fantasy mixes with romantic mysticism and magic realism in one. But the common thread is that all these writers are ridiculously talented.

Happy reading,
