Velvet Was the Night by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Maite is a secretary too busy reading romantic comics rather than living a life on her own. Elvis spends each day memorizing a new word and works for a man called El Mago. The two are bonded together by what feels like fate: the disappearance of Maite’s neighbor. Told in alternating points of view, Silvia Moreno-Garcia (Mexican Gothic) returns with an enticing noir mystery set in 1970’s Mexico City perfect for new and returning readers. —Andrea

Martita, I Remember You / Martita, te recuerdo by Sandra Cisneros

In her latest work—a perfectly distilled elixir of maturity, fondness, and truth—Sandra Cisneros somehow knows my soul, pinpointing exactly how it feels to grow up. This is a novella of sorts, but it defies categorization, except to say it is essential. In it, middle aged Corina reminisces over a series of letters, looking back on her youth when she lived in Paris with two girlfriends, waiting for her life to begin. In her iconic lyrical style, Cisneros immerses us in this past and present, and we will live lifetimes before coming up for air. It is magical. —Melinda

Evicted by Mathew Desmond

True stories of income inequality told with the style and readability of a great novel. Desmond, a Harvard-trained sociologist, lived in low-income neighborhoods for three years, recording the lives of people in the slums of Milwaukee, as they struggled (and failed) to keep a roof over their heads. It ends happily, with thoughtful solutions to ensure that everyone has a place to call home. Winner of the 2017 Pulitzer Prize. - Jason

Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Moreno-Garcia transplants the tropes and trappings of the classic European gothic romance to 1950s Mexico, creating a vivid novel that comments on the genre while standing on its own as a modern fable. Mysterious, lovely, creepily chilling—but driven by the determination of its indomitable heroine to carry through to the last page. Every person I've recommended this to has likewise devoured it, and immediately called me up to discuss it. - Jocelyn

Out by Natsuo Kirino

Out is the story of four women working a drab and monotonous graveyard shift at a bento factory in Japan. Kirino explores the desire to escape one’s circumstances and live a truthful life, good or bad, through some seriously twisted, but very human feelings. Follow these characters into the dark—from murder to scattering dismembered body parts to outmaneuvering Yakuza.

Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami

Murakami's writing is a dreamscape that floats before your eyes. His tone is calm and steady; no matter what's happening, you can depend on the voice to be matter-of-fact. For those familiar with his work, his Oedipus complex is as predictable as the surrealist nature of the storytelling as we follow multiple POV's through our world and another. - MJ

Friend of My Youth by Alice Munro

Munro is my favorite short-story writer of all time and this is probably my favorite of her collections. As with all of her collections, her writing is somehow both casual in feel but devastatingly precise, and her emotional register never fails. Three or four of the stories here are among the best written by anybody anywhere. - Rico

A comedic masterpiece by the king of postmodern satire. The son of one of the inventors of the atomic bomb is a dwarf who paints only stark black canvases. Around his neck he wears Ice-nine, a Weapon of Mass destruction that could freeze the world. Can Bokononism (a fictional religion) show us the way out of this violent age? - Jason
