In his final novel, Ivan Doig seemingly reaches back and spins a yarn of his own life. His protagonist, the 11-year old Donal Cameron, must leave his grandmother and his Montana home for distant relatives in Wisconsin, and on the Greyhound, the dog bus, his youthful adventure begins. A master storyteller of the American West, Doig gracefully captures the character and heart of the many who people its open landscapes – he will be dearly missed. — Melinda

Kushner paints a devastating and real portrait of what is means for a woman to be incarcerated in California through a cast of characters that you won’t soon forget. Her writing is direct and unsentimental but will make you feel deeply about the fate of these women (and isn’t that what fiction is all about?). — Casey

Hall tackles the elusive story of Oppenheimer—a man so soft-spoken and full of foibles it is nearly impossible to reconcile his personality with his atomic work—through “testimonies” from characters on the fringes of his greatness. There is a bittersweet element to these small stories. What is it to walk into a room with someone you never loved? To ask questions you know are cruel? — Clara
