The List by Yomi Adegoke

Staff Pick

Adegoke's debut novel wonderfully evokes the social zeitgeist through Ola and Micheal; young, Black, and in love, they are the internet's ideal "couple goals."  But when The List names Michael as an accused abuser, Ola is torn between believing the victims and believing her partner. As the chapters count down to the couple's wedding day, "will they or won't they" acquires new levels of meaning, making the book a perfect comment on the infuriating insanity of the internet and the grey area of being human.

A Shining by Jon Fosse

Staff Pick

This stream-of consciousness novella--the most recent of Fosse's works to appear in English--is a great introduction to the new Nobel laureate. It follows a man driving without a destination, making lefts and rights on whims until he comes to a forest, and, with nowhere else to go, abandons his car and proceeds on foot. In this impressive sliver of fiction, Fosse explores themes of adulthood and death, and delivers a thought-provoking meditation on the directionless and helplessness we often experience in life.
