Voyager, by Nona Fernández

Staff Pick

This book-length essay may be Nona Fernández's best work yet. In it, the acclaimed Chilean writer combines her own personal story--focusing on her mother's struggle with a neurological condition--with a close look at Pinochet's dictatorship and musings on astronomy to explore the deep mysteries that connect human history with the stars. Emotional and beautiful, this book offers insight on some of our most profound questions and cements Fernández’s place as one of her generation’s best writers.

Shy, by Max Porter

Staff Pick

Known for his uncanny ability to lay bare the breadth of human experience in as few as a hundred pages, Porter here turns his vivid and tender prose to his signature themes of grief, the search for belonging, and the terrifying nature of growing up, to tell the moving story of Shy, a teenager struggling to escape from a juvenile detention facility aptly known as Last Chance, where the camaraderie is often little different from the brutality.

Ten Planets, by Yuri Herrera

Staff Pick

Herrera has proven himself one of the most innovative and exciting novelists in world literature; with his first collection to appear in English, he shows the same talents with the short story. Worthy of comparison to the work of Borges--as well as that of Calvino and Ocampo--these tales upend our expectations of what a story can be, offering richly imagined worlds through multiple formats and often outrageous narratives. And while carrying on in a distinguished line of literary mavericks, Herrera has both pushed the boundaries of fiction and honed his own distinctive voice.
