True Life, by Adam Zagajewski

Staff Pick

Quiet and melancholy, the 54 poems of Zagajewski’s final--and possibly best--collection use observation to pierce the surface of the everyday and show us the profound meaning we might have missed. Featuring elegies and celebrations of people, places, and nature, the volume evokes not just the experience of a man looking back on a life well-lived, but the sensibility of someone aware that his time was nearing its end and striving to leave readers the last of his poetic wisdom.

Flatlands, by Sue Hubbard

Staff Pick

Set in the unforgiving landscape of World War II, Hubbard’s novel focuses on the budding friendship between a teenage evacuee and a conscientious objector. This skillful evocation of connection in a time of ruin is rendered with palpable ache and longing as Hubbard vividly conjures Lincolnshire in all its wild beauty, immersing us in a seemingly barren landscape revitalized by the songs of migratory birds--just as her characters' friendship gives rise to hope out of hopelessness and makes the unbearable bearable.

La Tercera, by Gina Apostol

Staff Pick

Apostol follows her acclaimed Insurrecto and The Revolution According to Raymundo Mata with another insightful exploration and deconstruction of the Philippines colonial history. With her signature blend of intelligence, humor, and ambition, her third novel tells the labyrinthine story of Rosario and her family, a tale that involves both revolutionaries and collaborators, and illustrates how the history of individuals is linked with that of a nation reeling from its brutal occupation by Americans.
