This incredible poet/illustrator duo are back with more stunning nature poems to read aloud. Each piece of this beautiful volume — from the endpaper to the ribbon to the contents — brings tears to my eyes and raises goosebumps on my skin. In a year that has been so hard and seemingly devoid of goodness, this is a charming book to remind us of the beauty that surrounds us and the gifts nature shares with us. —Courtney Knudsen, Collected Works Bookstore & Coffeehouse (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

这对令人难以置信的诗人/插画家组合带着更多令人惊叹的自然诗歌回来了,可以大声朗读。这本书的每一页--从结尾纸到彩带再到内容--都让我热泪盈眶,让我的皮肤起了鸡皮疙瘩。在这艰难的一年里,似乎没有善良,这是一本迷人的书,提醒我们周围的美和大自然与我们分享的礼物。-考特尼·克努森(Courtney Knudsen),收藏作品书店和咖啡馆(获取你的副本。)。Gs8世界播


Erpenbeck's memoir is a free-floating collage of vignettes, speeches, and musings on creativity that transcends its form. It encompasses her craft, her self-discovery as a writer, and her childhood in East Berlin, and it resonates powerfully with the conditions of life in our world now. We're grateful to it for illuminating the possibilities for human life and imagination under systems of oppression. —Camden, The Booksmith (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

厄彭贝克的回忆录是一本自由漂浮的拼贴画,汇集了小插曲、演讲和对超越形式的创造力的思考。它涵盖了她的手艺,她作为一名作家的自我发现,以及她在东柏林的童年,它与我们现在世界的生活条件产生了强烈的共鸣。我们感谢它阐明了在压迫制度下人类生活和想象力的可能性。-卡姆登,书匠(拿你的副本。)。Gs8世界播


Short essays about the wonderful beauty and oddness that is the natural world, beautiful illustrations to accompany the essays, and interspersed moments of autobiographical connection? Yes, please! This book was such a delight in a year that hasn't seemed to have many, and the ability to pick it up for just one essay at a time was perfect for my seemingly minimized attention span. —Cat Bock, Parnassus Books (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

关于自然世界奇妙的美丽和奇特的短文,伴随着散文的美丽插图,以及穿插着自传式联系的时刻?是的,拜托您!。在这一年里,这本书是如此的令人愉悦,而且一次只读一篇文章的能力,对于我似乎注意力持续时间最短的人来说是完美的。-猫博克(Cat Bock),帕纳苏斯图书(Parnassus Books)。Gs8世界播


I couldn't wait to start baking as soon as I looked through this book! I've baked several of the recipes, and the chocolate chip cookies are the best I've ever made, and the coconut chews have become a household favorite. As we head into the holidays and gear up for the seasonal bake-a-thon, you must have this book by your side in the kitchen. —Sherri Gallentine, Vroman's Bookstore (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

我一看完这本书就迫不及待地开始烘焙了!我已经烘焙了几个食谱,巧克力曲奇是我做过的最好的,椰子咀嚼已经成为家喻户晓的最爱。当我们即将进入假期,为季节性的烘焙马拉松做准备的时候,你一定要把这本书放在你的厨房里。-雪莉·加伦丁(Sherri Gallentine),弗拉曼书店(Vroman‘s Bookstore)(买你的书。)。Gs8世界播


For those who fell in love with Clarke's first novel, Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, this is a much anticipated delight. Piranesi is not your average fantasy novel. Clarke creates a surreal world, and pulls and envelops one completely into its mysterious labyrinths. A tale swirling with ancient seas and lost knowledge, this is a hearty nod to Philip K. Dick and Ursula K. Le Guin. It even contains unexpected dry humor! You will still be thinking about the story and characters as you go about your life, long after you've finished reading. A very good thing. —Gena Brady, Subterranean Books (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

对于那些爱上克拉克的第一部小说《乔纳森·斯特兰奇和诺雷尔先生》的人来说,这是一件期待已久的喜事。《食人鱼》不是一般的奇幻小说。克拉克创造了一个超现实的世界,并把一个人完全拉进了它神秘的迷宫中。这是一个充斥着古老海洋和失落的知识的故事,这是对菲利普·K·迪克(Philip K.Dick)和乌苏拉·K·勒奎恩(Ursula K.Le Guin)的衷心认可。它甚至包含了意想不到的冷笑话!在你读完书很久之后,当你开始你的生活时,你仍然会想着故事和人物。这是一件非常好的事情。-吉娜·布雷迪(Gena Brady),地下图书(拿到你的副本。)。Gs8世界播


As someone who loves both dystopian fiction and baseball, I feel like this book was written specifically for me. That it is told entirely from the point of view of a father only cemented that feeling. When AutoAmerica rejoins the Olympics with the goal of defeating ChinRussia, Gwen — who is "Blasian" (of Black and Asian ethnicity), has a golden arm, and has developed into a great pitcher in an underground baseball league formed by her parents — suddenly finds herself a top recruit. And under the omnipresent, watchful and witty eye of Aunt Nettie, Gwen is on the verge of delivering on her promise. But at what cost? Gs8世界播

作为一个热爱反乌托邦小说和棒球的人,我觉得这本书是专门为我写的。这完全是从父亲的角度讲的,这只会巩固这种感觉。当AutoAmerica带着击败中国俄罗斯的目标重新参加奥运会时,Gwen突然发现自己成了一名顶尖新兵。Gwen是“Blasian”(黑人和亚裔),有一只金色的手臂,已经发展成为她父母组建的地下棒球联盟中的一名伟大的投手。在内蒂阿姨无处不在、警惕和机智的注视下,格温即将兑现她的诺言。但代价是什么呢?Gs8世界播


The whole book is amazing. Its message of radical defiance and hope is exactly what we need during this tumultuous year, and the ending left me speechless. Ann Patchett said that, with this book, Jen has “pitched a perfect game,” and she’s absolutely right. —Paul Swydan, The Silver Unicorn Bookstore (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

整本书都令人惊叹。它传达的激进的挑战和希望正是我们在这动荡的一年里所需要的,而结局让我说不出话来。安·帕切特说,有了这本书,珍“打出了一场完美的比赛”,她完全正确。--保罗·斯威丹(Paul Swydan),《银色独角兽》(The Silver Unicorn Bookstore)。Gs8世界播


This groundbreaking story captivated my attention with its luminous characters and the author's ability to seamlessly move through time. Grounded in culture and family ties, it really shows all the ways family trauma and history can haunt us for generations to come. —DeShanta Hairston, Books and Crannies (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

这个突破性的故事以其闪亮的人物和作者无缝穿越时间的能力吸引了我的注意力。它植根于文化和家庭纽带,真正展示了家庭创伤和历史可能困扰我们后代的所有方式。--德尚塔·海尔斯顿(DeShanta Hairston),《书与裂缝》(Books And Cannies)。Gs8世界播


Hornsby's ruminative and God-haunted road trip novel is a hidden gem from this dementedly off-kilter year. I'm grateful for Hornsby's humor, and for what [20th-century French philosopher] Simone Weil would call Father Dan's "unmixed attention." In his encounters with this novel's cast of characters, I was reminded of these words from Weil: "Attention, taken to its highest degree, is the same thing as prayer. It presupposes faith and love. Absolutely unmixed attention is prayer." Hornsby's a writer to pay attention to. —John Francisconi, McNally Jackson ( Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

霍恩斯比沉思而又闹鬼的公路旅行小说是这疯狂的一年中隐藏的一颗宝石。我感谢霍恩斯比的幽默,感谢(20世纪法国哲学家)西蒙娜·韦尔(Simone Weil)所说的丹神父的“全神贯注”。在他遇到这部小说中的角色时,我想起了韦尔的这句话:“全神贯注,就像祈祷一样。它是以信仰和爱为前提的。绝对不加掩饰的关注就是祈祷。”霍恩斯比是一个值得关注的作家。-约翰·弗朗西斯科尼(John Francisconi),麦克纳利·杰克逊(McNally Jackson)。Gs8世界播

Oak Flat is a stunningly beautiful — both visually and lyrically — oral history of Oak Flat and the perilous history of the Indigenous culture there.

橡树坪是一个令人惊叹的美丽-无论是视觉上还是歌词上-口述历史橡树坪和当地土著文化的危险历史。雷德尼斯精美的插图照亮了文本和历史,这些文本和历史层层叠叠地呈现在我们的空间里,无论是好是坏,在这个地球上。-尼克·布赞斯基(Nick Buzanski),《书是魔术》(Books Are Magic)。Gs8世界播


This book spoke to me on so many levels! She Come By It Natural is an ode to one of my absolute favorite idols and feminist icons Dolly Parton, but it is also an ode to the author's grandmother. If you have ever listened to "Jolene" or adored Dolly's character in one of her many films, you will definitely want to read this book to further appreciate the many things that Dolly has done in her career to become the icon that she is. It is a perfect gift book, and a book you will want to discuss with friends and family. —Shane Mullen, Left Bank Books (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

这本书对我说了很多层面的话!《She Come by It Natural》是对我最喜欢的偶像之一和女权主义偶像多莉·帕顿的颂歌,但也是对作者祖母的颂歌。如果你曾经听过《乔琳》,或者在多莉的众多电影中欣赏过她的角色,你一定会想要读这本书来进一步欣赏多莉在她的职业生涯中为成为偶像所做的许多事情,你一定会想要读这本书,以进一步欣赏多莉在职业生涯中为成为偶像所做的许多事情。这是一本完美的礼品书,也是一本你想和朋友和家人讨论的书。-谢恩·马伦(Shane Mullen),左岸图书公司(Left Bank Books)。Gs8世界播


Reading Eddie and Paul's discussions about their lives — the Black Panther movement, the prison system, the effectiveness of activism — couldn't be more relevant. I was shocked at how closely their experiences mirror what's going on in our country today. A must-read. —Suzanna Hermans, Oblong Books (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

读到埃迪和保罗关于他们生活的讨论--黑豹运动、监狱系统、激进主义的有效性--再合适不过了。令我震惊的是,他们的经历如此贴切地反映了我们国家今天正在发生的事情。一本必读的书。-苏珊娜·赫尔曼斯(Suzanna Hermann),欧龙图书(Obong Books)。Gs8世界播


An intersectional feminist read from beginning to end. This story dives deep into what it means to be "undocumented" while also flipping the term on its head. It is the first time that I saw the word reimagined, claimed as an identity and felt proudly.The author builds a magical world both aesthetically and ideologically. Written as a young adult novel, Lobizona is both accessible and relatable. And of course, there's a beautiful love story at the center: both self-love, and love with a partner who cares what the main character, Manu, thinks and feels. Garber writes: "Why settle for being a son of the system when you can mother a movement?" Mic drop. —Kalima DeSuze, Cafe Con Libros (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

一位从头到尾的交叉的女权主义者。这个故事深入探讨了“无证”的含义,同时也颠覆了这个词的含义。这是我第一次看到这个词被重新想象,成为一种身份,并感到自豪。作者从美学和意识形态上构建了一个神奇的世界。作为一部年轻的成人小说,《洛比佐纳》既平易近人,又让人产生共鸣。当然,片中有一个美丽的爱情故事:既有自爱,也有与关心主人公马努想法和感受的伴侣的爱。加伯写道:“当你可以发起一场运动时,为什么要满足于成为体制之子呢?”麦克风掉落。-卡利玛·德苏泽(Kalima Desuze),Cafe Con Libros(拿到你的副本。)。Gs8世界播


A gorgeous, meditative novel by one of Europe's greatest authors. Taking place over the course of a day, a widowed painter meditates on God, love, art, addiction, and friendship. A major achievement — a novel which feels more like a symphony or a sculpture than fiction. Beautifully translated by Damion Searls. —Mark Haber, Brazos Bookstore (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

这是一本由欧洲最伟大的作家之一写的华丽的、沉思的小说。在一天的时间里,一位丧偶的画家在冥想上帝、爱、艺术、沉迷和友谊。一项重大成就--一部感觉更像交响乐或雕塑而不是小说的小说。达米恩·瑟尔斯(Damion Searls)翻译精美。-马克·哈伯(Mark Haber),布拉索斯书店(Braos Bookstore)。Gs8世界播


This novel is at once heartwarming and funny and realistically sad; it's a glimpse into multiculturalism and queer life, as well as a story of family and when to say goodbye. I fell in love with the prose almost immediately, but the characters were so real and the situation between the lovers so intensely true that I couldn't help but fall and stay under its spell until the end. I wish there had been even more. There were moments when I felt as if a hipper, more understanding John Updike had written this beautiful book, but the writing is so crisp and the structure of the novel is so unique, that I want Washington to have all the glory. This is one of the best of the year. —William Carl, An Unlikely Story (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

这部小说既温馨又有趣,又有现实的悲哀;它是对多元文化主义和古怪生活的一瞥,也是一个关于家庭和何时告别的故事。我几乎立刻就爱上了这篇散文,但里面的人物是如此真实,恋人之间的情况也是如此真实,以至于我情不自禁地爱上了它,直到最后都被它迷住了。我希望有更多。有几次,我觉得自己好像是一个更时髦、更通情达理的约翰·厄普代克(John Updike)写了这本漂亮的书,但这本书写得如此清晰,小说的结构如此独特,以至于我希望华盛顿拥有所有的荣耀。这是一年中最好的比赛之一。-威廉·卡尔(William Carl),一个不太可能的故事(获取你的副本。)。Gs8世界播


If you're looking for a book to lose yourself in, this is the one. I was hooked from the first page and read this in a weekend. The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is a sprawling magical epic that traverses time and place. Promised to a man in an arranged marriage in 1700s France, Addie craves her freedom. She prays to the gods for an escape and ends up making a deal with one who answers. The devil’s in the details though: She gets out of the marriage, but her freedom and her life ends up looking very different from what she imagined. —Melissa Taylor, E. Shaver, Bookseller (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

如果你正在寻找一本可以让你沉浸其中的书,这本书就是你想要的。我从第一页就被吸引住了,在一个周末读到了这篇文章。《阿迪·拉鲁的隐形人生》是一部跨越时空的奇幻史诗。在17世纪的法国,阿迪在包办婚姻中被许诺给一个男人,她渴望自由。她向众神祈求逃脱,最后和一个回应的人做了交易。然而,魔鬼在于细节:她从婚姻中解脱出来,但她的自由和她的生活最终看起来与她想象的截然不同。-梅丽莎·泰勒(Melissa Taylor),E.Shaver,书店(拿到你的书)。Gs8世界播

Due to the pandemic, the election, and the numerous other distractions of 2020, reading — and concentrating on reading — has been difficult at times this year. Because of this, I've been revisiting old favorites. The one I'm most thankful for is Angelica Gorodischer's Kalpa Imperial. Published in English translation by the great Ursula K. Le Guin back in 2003, the book is like a warm blanket to me, a perfect little fantasy collection — irreverent, fun, mythical, and a beautiful piece of world building. A truly special book not on most people's radars. —Justin Souther, Malaprop's Bookstore (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

由于流感大流行、大选以及2020年的许多其他分心事件,阅读--以及集中精力阅读--今年有时会变得困难。正因为如此,我一直在重温过去最受欢迎的作品。我最感谢的是安吉丽卡·戈罗迪舍尔的《帝国卡尔帕》(Kalpa Imperial)。这本书于2003年由伟大的乌苏拉·K·勒奎恩(Ursula K.Le Guin)翻译成英文出版,对我来说就像一张温暖的毯子,一个完美的小幻想集--不敬、有趣、神秘,是世界建筑的一块美丽的部分。一本真正特别的书,不在大多数人的雷达上。-贾斯汀·索瑟(Justin Souther),马拉普罗书店(Malaprop‘s Bookstore)。Gs8世界播

Our friends across the street at the Ladybird Diner have been handing out thousands of free lunches since March. We're inspired by their efforts to feed those in need, and their free lunch program is an inspiring example of what a small business can do to care for its community. Meg, the diner's owner, published a book of essays to help fund the community lunch program. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of the book go directly to feeding people in need. In addition to supporting a great cause, Ladybird, Collected is a compelling read about community, parenting, and small business. —Danny Caine, The Raven Book Store (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

We're always thankful for the wisdom and imagination of Alexis Pauline Gumbs. Reading her books feels like a cross between stumbling upon an ancient sacred text and discovering that your favorite singer put out an album you somehow missed. Her poetic observations are at once uncannily familiar, alien, and intimate. With so much at stake right now in the world you may be tempted to read more topical "political" books, but if you want to understand how social justice can move at the pace of the natural world, at the pace of history, don't miss Undrowned. It will blow you away. —Errol Anderson, Charis Circle/Charis Books & More (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

我们总是感谢亚历克西斯·波林·甘姆斯的智慧和想象力。阅读她的书感觉就像是偶然发现了一本古老的神圣经文,又发现你最喜欢的歌手发行了一张你不知何故错过的专辑。她的诗意观察既令人不可思议地熟悉,又令人陌生,又让人感到亲切。眼下世界上有如此多的利害关系,你可能会忍不住去读一些更具话题性的“政治性”书籍,但如果你想了解社会正义是如何以自然世界和历史的步伐前进的,千万不要错过“未溺水”。它会让你大吃一惊的。-埃罗尔·安德森(Errol Anderson),Charis Circle/Charis Books&More(获取您的副本)。Gs8世界播


Prepare to be immersed in contemporary Indian culture. This work is written from multiple points of view, each character hailing from a different walk of life. And yet, there are universal themes at play, with timely and grave parallels to the challenges we're currently facing. It may also serve as a warning against the corruption of our institutions. No easy answers are found here. At one point, I nearly set A Burning aside and I'm grateful that I did not. —Melanie Cade, Mojo Books & Records (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

准备好沉浸在当代印度文化中吧。这部作品是从多个角度写的,每个人物都来自不同的行业。然而,有一些普遍的主题在发挥作用,与我们目前面临的挑战有着及时和严重的相似之处。这也可能是对我们机构腐败的一个警告。这里没有简单的答案。有一次,我差点把《燃烧》放在一边,我很庆幸我没有这么做。-梅勒妮·凯德(Melanie Cade),莫霍图书与唱片公司(Mojo Books&Records)。Gs8世界播

Boyfriend Material is a hilarious LGBTQ rom-com. When Luc O'Donnell is in the tabloids again, he needs an image makeover to keep his job. His friend-of-a-friend Oliver Blackwood is a buttoned-up, vegetarian barrister. They agree to fake date, and gradually and delightfully progress from sorta-enemies to real boyfriends.

I read How To Do Nothing right before quarantine hit and I started the improbable task of working from home for a bookstore. It’s extremely wise and so, so helpful in our hyper-internet age, and helped me reframe how I think about using (or simply experiencing) my time, what I consume and why, and how connectivity helps capitalism enter the smallest parts of our lives. —Dana, The Astoria Bookshop (Get your copy.)

就在检疫到来之前,我读到了如何无所事事,于是我开始了一项不太可能的任务--在家中为一家书店工作。它非常明智,在我们这个超级互联网时代非常有帮助,帮助我重新思考如何使用(或只是体验)我的时间,我消费了什么,为什么要消费,以及连接如何帮助资本主义进入我们生活的最小部分。-Dana,Astoria书店(买你的书吧。)。Gs8世界播


It took over 40 years for the prescient novel by Octavia Butler to make the New York Times bestseller list. The novel's protagonist lives in a California thirsting for water, in an America surged by drugs and led by a president campaigning to "make America great again." We are grateful for Parable of the Sower because it is more than just a brilliant work of fiction — it is a philosophy on self-empowerment in a world that is constantly changing. —Isis Asare, Sistah Scifi (Get your copy.)

奥克塔维亚·巴特勒(Octavia Butler)的这部颇具先见之明的小说花了40多年才登上《纽约时报》畅销书排行榜。这部小说的主人公生活在渴望喝水的加利福尼亚州,生活在一个毒品泛滥的美国,由一位竞选活动的总统领导,他的目标是“让美国再次伟大起来”。我们感谢《播种者的寓言》,因为它不仅仅是一部精彩的小说--它是一种关于在一个不断变化的世界中自我赋权的哲学。-Isis Asare,Sistah Science fi(拿你的拷贝。)。Gs8世界播


This book is Austin in the late '80s and early '90s. It covers the making of Slackers and Dazed and Confused, and extensively documents the general run-amok-ness of the young cast. Anyone who lived in Austin at the time will be mining their memories as to whether they were also at The Carousel Lounge when a certain actor was dancing on the piano or getting grub from Mad Dog & Beans when the cast-members were there with the munchies. And for those of us who have no idea how a film gets made, it elucidates the compromises, the knock down drag-outs, and the coercion involved in creating a film just as the director envisions it yet somehow within the realm of what the studio will allow. —Kelly von Plonski, Subterranean Books (Get your copy.)

这本书讲述的是80年代末90年代初的奥斯汀。它涵盖了懒汉的制作以及迷茫和困惑,并广泛记录了年轻演员们的普遍失控。任何当时住在奥斯汀的人都会挖掘他们的记忆,当某个演员在钢琴上跳舞时,他们是否也在旋转木马休息室,或者当演员们带着零食在那里时,他们是不是也在疯狗和豆子那里吃东西。对于我们这些不知道一部电影是如何制作的人来说,它阐明了创作一部电影所涉及的妥协、拖沓和强迫,正如导演所设想的那样,但不知何故在制片厂允许的范围内。--凯利·冯·普朗斯基(Kelly Von Plonski),《地下之书》(UnderUnder Books)。Gs8世界播

Caught between her Canadian nationality and Jamaican heritage in Toronto's Little Jamaica neighborhood, Kara Davis is an embodiment of the child-of-immigrants narrative. Reid-Benta carefully crafts 12 interwoven short stories that follow Kara through the experiences of being Black in a predominantly white elementary school, the pranks she falls victim to in middle school, and her mother’s unrelenting grasp of control as she becomes a teen and young adult. Reid-Benta’s characters are viscerally real for any child of immigrants living in the United States or Canada, but especially for daughters of immigrants who balance insurmountable pressure to retain cultural traditions while trailblazing in a new world. As a Cuban-American whose mother wasn’t born here, I saw much of the same themes and characters in my own life.

Ariana Brown’s Sana Sana is the perfect poetry collection for 2020. With radical tenderness, Brown invites us into some of her experiences growing up a Black Mexican queer woman, through the conflict and joy and healing. Brown has been performing spoken word across the country for more than a decade, and Sana Sana is the first printed collection of her most famous work. It's the perfect gift for any lover of poetry, or anyone just trying to survive capitalism. A quote: "The lesson — / if you are alive, you are descended from a people / who refused to die.

In The Cold Millions, Jess Walter has created a vivid and thrilling story in the wild and turbulent time of 1909 Spokane, Washington — a hotbed of the west coast labor movement. Here labor unions fought for the rights of workers and the lower class, the "cold millions" like Gig and Rye Dolan. These brothers are swept into the fight where they encounter a myriad of unique characters including three strong women, one a real-life labor and rights organizer, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn; a corrupt millionaire lumber/mining baron; dangerous cops; mysterious friends; and a brave lawyer. Throughout the tale we witness the bond between the brothers stretch and reflect their own experiences and hopes for the future. Jess Walter has a tremendous ability to bring his complex characters to life within such a significant historical time, and his wry sense of humor is delicately threaded through the story. —Maureen Dooley-Sroufe, Cannon Beach Book Company (Get your copy.)

I am grateful for this book because not only was it a great read, but also because the author took chances with the narrative, taking on uncomfortable topics and handling them beautifully. When authors takes risks, like Gerrold did with this book, it inspires other authors to write without fear and push the boundaries of what is possible in literature and culture in general. If you haven't read this book, and you enjoy mind-bending science fiction stories that take on themes of sexuality and gender, then this book is a must-read. —Jean-Paul Garnier, Space Cowboy Books (Get your copy.)

我很感激这本书,因为它不仅是一本很棒的书,而且因为作者抓住了叙事的机会,采用了令人不快的话题,并将它们处理得很好。当作者冒险时,就像杰罗尔德在这本书中所做的那样,它激励其他作家无所畏惧地写作,并在文学和文化中突破可能的界限。如果你没有读过这本书,而你喜欢以性和性别为主题的令人费解的科幻故事,那么这本书是必读的。-让-保罗·加尼耶(Jean-Paul Garnier),太空牛仔图书(请购买你的副本。)。Gs8世界播

This poignant collection conveys the complexities and joys of living in the American South, asking 21 writers of color living in the South: Who is welcome? These often urgent, often funny, always nuanced essays illuminate the myriad tensions of living in the South but also why it’s worth it. It’s also edited by one of our regulars, essayist Cinelle Barnes, and published by the incredible, boundary-pushing Hub City Press. Even if I wasn’t a Southern reader and bookseller, I would love this collection. It offers diverse snapshots of a region flush in both potential and problems, of anyone who’s ever contemplated their belonging. —Sara Peck, Blue Bicycle Books (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

Drugs, sex, and all things fantasy are where this book begins. What starts as a murder mystery transforms into so much more. From the variety of creatures, to the richly built fantasy world, Sarah J. Maas has once again captured my heart. She surprised me, elicited a couple undignified snorts of laughter that luckily only my cat heard, and even got me to ugly cry. Maas's way of bringing characters to life is a true pleasure and I can’t wait to see people meet Bryce and company. From the power of friendship, to epic battle scenes, to a truly original fantasy world, this book has it all. Filled with magic, mysteries, badassery, and, above all, heart, this book is a special gem I’ll love for many years to come. —Constance, Mysterious Galaxy (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

毒品、性和所有幻想都是这本书的开头。一开始是一桩谋杀案,后来演变成了更多的疑案。从种类繁多的生物,到富丽堂皇的奇幻世界,莎拉·J·马斯再次俘获了我的心。她让我大吃一惊,引来了几声不体面的笑声,幸运的是只有我的猫听到了,甚至让我难看地哭了起来。马斯将角色赋予生活的方式是一种真正的乐趣,我迫不及待地想看到人们见到布莱斯和他的同伴。从友谊的力量,到史诗般的战斗场面,再到真正原创的奇幻世界,这本书应有尽有。这本书充满了魔力、神秘感、诡辩,最重要的是充满了内心,它是我未来多年都会喜爱的一份特殊的珍宝。-康斯坦斯,神秘的银河系(拿你的拷贝。)。Gs8世界播


I started reading An American Sunrise at the beginning of the lockdown here in Pittsburgh, and it was the only book I could read for several weeks, sometimes reading just one poem over and over again. Harjo's ability to hold darkness and light together, just like a morning sky before sunrise, was my blueprint for processing the past year. But beyond the refuge I was able to find in her words, I also found a call to remember and a call to act. Gs8世界播

匹兹堡的封锁刚开始,我就开始读《美国日出》,这是我能读好几个星期的唯一一本书,有时只读一首诗一遍又一遍。哈乔把黑暗和光明结合在一起的能力,就像日出前的早晨天空一样,是我过去一年的蓝图。但除了我能从她的话语中找到的避难所之外,我还发现了一种需要记住的呼唤和一种行动的呼唤。Gs8世界播


Harjo holds so many different events and feelings together in a single poem, sometimes in a single line — braiding together stories both personal and ancestral, allowing radiance and beauty to blossom while also pushing American readers in particular to confront and reckon with the violences historically and currently done in their names and on this land. From "Directions to You": "You will not always be lost. / You are right here, / In your time, / In your place." —Anna Weber, White Whale Bookstore (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

An acid-tipped portrait of the artist as a young broke millennial, Luster pushes on painful pressure points of modern life with humor, precision, and a bruised, beating heart. Edie is a futureless editor at a publishing house when she begins a Tinder-borne affair with a much older man. He's white, married, and wealthy; she's Black, orphaned, and completely broke. I won't spoil anything else, but know that as this story complicates, Leilani skillfully excavates truths about power, class, racism, gender, manners, and trauma that exist even in our most minor interactions. I loved this book for its sexiness, its embrace of complexity, and its careful attention to pain. —Molly Moore, BookPeople (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

Arundhati Roy's latest collection of essays is powerful and timely, exploring the coronavirus pandemic, the persistent and rising threat of authoritarianism, and how her own fiction is in dialogue with these things. Although this may sound exhausting — especially as we drag ourselves along, sluggish with pandemic fatigue — Roy's voice is brilliant, reasonable, clear as a bell, and full of charm. And so we're grateful for her work and grateful for this book at a time when clear and reasonable voices are what we most urgently need to hold at the center of our attention. Gs8世界播

Arundhati Roy的最新散文集既有力又及时,探讨了冠状病毒的流行,威权主义持续不断和不断上升的威胁,以及她自己的小说是如何与这些事情对话的。尽管这听起来可能让人精疲力尽--特别是当我们疲惫不堪、因流行病疲惫而行动迟缓的时候--但罗伊的声音是灿烂的、合理的、清晰的,而且充满了魅力。因此,在清晰合理的声音是我们最迫切需要关注的焦点的时候,我们感谢她的工作,也感谢这本书。Gs8世界播


In the book's final essay, Roy calls the global pandemic "a gateway between one world and the next." Such imagination is urgently needed, especially when we're running out of steam while navigating this moment of crisis. She invites us to really consider that aspect of the term "crisis" which implies a turning point. "We can choose to walk through [the gateway], dragging the carcasses of our prejudice and hatred, our avarice, our data banks and dead ideas, our dead rivers and smoky skies behind us. Or we can walk through lightly, with little luggage, ready to imagine another world. And ready to fight for it." —Mark Trecka, Binnacle Books (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播

在这本书的最后一篇文章中,罗伊称全球流行病是“一个世界与另一个世界之间的门户”。我们迫切需要这样的想象力,特别是当我们在应对这场危机的过程中失去动力的时候。她邀请我们认真考虑“危机”一词的这一方面,这意味着一个转折点。“我们可以选择穿过[大门],拖着我们的偏见和仇恨、我们的贪婪、我们的数据库和死亡的思想、我们的死河和烟雾缭绕的天空。或者,我们可以轻装上阵,几乎没有行李,准备想象另一个世界。并准备为之而战。”--马克·特雷卡(Mark Trecka),Binnacle Books(获取你的副本)。Gs8世界播


I am grateful for mother, scientist, professor, and member of the Potawatomi Nation Robin Wall Kimmerer's book Braiding Sweetgrass. Kimmerer takes us on a journey from the past to the present and reminds us of all we have to be grateful for, asking us, "What would it be like to be raised on gratitude, to speak to the natural world as a member of the democracy of species, to raise a pledge of interdependence? No declarations of political loyalty are required, just a response to a repeated question: 'Can we agree to be grateful for all that is given?'"Kimmerer's book is a beautiful blend of scientific knowledge and traditional wisdom that reads like poetry, testimony and essay, bringing hard facts about our dying natural world to surface, and with a gentle hand, she motivates and stirs something deep within us. Milkweed Editions published a special hardback edition this year; it is a treasure that will stay in my personal library and will be passed down to family. I love it that much. —Rosaura Magaa, Palabras Bilingual Bookstore (Get your copy.) Gs8世界播
