Lost & Found
By Kathryn Schulz
Hardcover $27.00
Buy from Other Retailers:

“Kathryn Schulz has a singular way of turning a familiar idea around and around until it becomes cosmic, geological, wondrous. In Lost & Found she turns a memoir of love and death into an exploration of the way chance becomes fate and grief intertwines with gratitude. To read her is to be quietly amazed at hidden depths and histories—as if you were to discover a map of a continent written in the palm of your hand.”

Jia Tolentino, author of Trick Mirror

Bath Haus
By P. J. Vernon
Hardcover $26.95
Buy from Other Retailers:

“Bath Haus is riveting: a gripping thriller about how quickly a life can unravel after a single bad decision. P. J. Vernon deftly reminds us that the terrifying traumas from childhood are often but a prelude to the nightmares we will walk into as adults. This book is stylish, smart, and scary as hell.”

Fiona and Jane
By Jean Chen Ho
Hardcover $26.00
Buy from Other Retailers:

“I loved every one of these vibrant, sharply-observed stories that explore the complexities of friendship, love, lust, youth and identity. Jean Chen Ho’s writing is spiky, surprising and funny, suffused with wit and sadness. On top of all that, she writes about southern California with specificity and insight, mapping corners of it that I haven’t seen before in fiction. A striking debut from a very talented writer.”

Charles Yu, author of Interior Chinatown
