Maya’s Notebook by Isabel Allende

In Isabel Allende’s beguiling new novel,19-year-old Maya, who was raised by her eccentric grandparents, has been exiled to Chiloe, a remote island off Chile. Allende weaves Maya’s narrative back and forth between her daily life in the Chilean village and the catastrophic events that force her to her island exile. In true Allende fashion, secrets are revealed, magic is introduced, and the tapestry between Maya and her past soon fuses with that of Chile’s own turbulent history.

The Son by Philip Meyer

The acclaimed author of American Rust returns with The Son: an epic, multigenerational saga of power, blood, and land that follows the rise of one unforgettable Texas family from the Comanche raids of the 1800s to the border raids of the early 1900s to the oil booms of the 20th century.

“[Meyer is] a gifted new writer—a writer who understands how place and personality and circumstance can converge to create the perfect storm of tragedy." —Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

The Illusion of Separateness by Simon Van Booy

We are big fans of Van Booy’s previous book, Everything Beautiful Began After, and could not wait to read his new novel. We are thrilled to say that we love it! Reminiscent of Atonement, this tale of war and love and quiet connection is absolutely beautiful.

“If F. Scott Fitzgerald and Marguerite Duras had had a son, he would be Simon Van Booy; this is a truly special writer who does things with abstract language that is so evocative and original your breath literally catches in your chest.” —Andre Dubus III

The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells by Andrew Sean Greer

Greer (Confessions of Max Tivoli) brings us a wonderfully romantic story of a woman who has the chance to experience alternate lives in three different eras. “The premise of this novel isn’t that a woman travels through time: it’s that ‘the impossible happens once to each of us’… What this wonderful novel teaches us is how magic works.” —John Irving.
