Time and Again

May 4, 2024

The novels this week play with time in different ways—one a follow-up to a prize-winning book from Eastern Europe, another a much-anticipated time-traveling first novel. Colm Tóibín revisits the past in the eagerly awaited continuation of his bestselling novel. A debut puts its characters in small-town Vermont under a microscope. And Mexico and Brooklyn are settings for an inquiry into magic realism and the history of drug cartels.

Happy reading,
