On Their Own

May 25, 2024

Two novels about sisters (in France and on a Northern European Island) feature in this selection that launches Memorial Day weekend and the beginning of summer. Another explores polar-opposite women living uneasily under the same roof. There is a common thread of shadowy sensuality, unsettling in a good way—making us pay attention to these singular characters. Our nonfiction choices include a trans memoir as powerful as it is poetic, and a biography of one of the most influential editors of our time. Enjoy your holiday!

Happy reading,
