Marigold and Rose, by Louise Gluck

Staff Pick

"It was not a happy time. This was the first the twins understood that word, 'happy,' but they understood it because it was gone," Glück writes in one of the fewer-than 100 pages of her first work of fiction. Though new territory for the Nobel laureate whose claim to immortality is her poetry, the novel covers Glück's familiar themes of childhood and loss, along with her signature profound musings on existence, language, and the toll of everyday life; she is no less a master of craft here, than in acclaimed collections such as The Wild Iris and The Triumph of Achilles.

City on Fire, by Don Winslow

Staff Pick

The opening installment of a planned trilogy, this entertaining story is crafted from some of the mainstays of the Western canon (notably The Iliad and The Aeneid), yet Winslow has crafted the old plot line of two families at war into a fresh story set in 1980s New England. As Winslow plans to retire from writing upon the completion of this project, it stands as a send-off of sorts, and one that perfectly caps the career of one of the finest crime writers of his generation.

A Hundred Lovers, Richie Hofmann

Staff Pick

Hofmann's slim volume of erotic poetry harnesses classical imagery and landscapes for an intimate look at the depths of desire and love in a queer relationship. With only the details of technology and modern comforts to date its true provenance, this relationship not only plays out within the wider context of timeless poetic traditions, but such is Hoffmann's mastery of language and genre that his work often feels like it was written centuries ago itself.
