Bookstore Picks

Language Itself

April 16, 2022

The books this week include a debut novel by one of our own, two books from the ’60s by a highly admired Danish writer, a collection of short fiction from a prolific Mexican writer, a haunting novel from South Korea, and an award-winning Black poet’s newest compilation. Several are in translation, from small presses, and in affordable paperback editions. All shine a light on these writers’ extraordinary facility with language itself.

Happy reading,
Melanie Fleishman
