The Fountain of Literature

April 10, 2021

Sometimes in publishing there is a veritable cascade of books that flow onto the shelves in the same month. For spring 2021 titles, April is the month—and so this week we call out a few that we think you’ll want to know about: two cultural icons, (one who lived into her 90s and one whose life was cut short); several artists and torrid romances; a lyrical new voice in Black literature; plus the lost art of old world Indian alchemy and ancient bookmaking in Italy.

Happy reading,
Melanie Fleishman
