Always Another Country by Sisonke Msimang 

A New York Times Staff Favorite and one of The Globe’s 100 Favourite Books
“Brutally and uncompromisingly honest, Sisonke’s beautifully crafted storytelling enriches the already extraordinary pool of young African women writers of our time.” —Graça Machel, widow of former South African president Nelson Mandela

You Have Me to Love by Jaap Robben

“An intense and dramatic novel filled with meticulous use of detail and a forensic psychological accuracy. Jaap Robben handles delicate, dangerous material with subtlety and sympathy, but also with a visionary sense of truth that is masterly and unforgettable.” —Colm Tóibín, author of House of Names and Brooklyn

(Translated by David Doherty • Sep 4, 2018 • Trade Paperback • 978-1-64286-001-6)

Craving by Esther Gerritsen

“Funny, angry, feminist…Droll and horrific and incredibly moving”—The New York Times Book Review

“Cool, sparse, and delicious, Craving hits all the right notes. This is an author who is unafraid of both complex characters and complex emotion.” —Alice Sebold, author of The Lovely Bones

(Translated by Michele Hutchison • Oct 2, 2018 • Trade Paperback • 978-1-64286-002-3)

We & Me by Saskia de Coster

“Saskia de Coster’s We and Me is a great dark beauty, and simultaneously, a true original and a reminder of why that endangered species, the novel, remains essential: no other narrative form is so expansive, so complex, so human, and so true.” —Michael Cunningham, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Hours

(Translated by Nancy Forest-Flier • Oct 2, 2018 • Trade Paperback • 978-1-64286-004-7)

The Last Poets by Christine Otten

“Otten imagines the Last Poets as modern Romantics whose personal histories, performance styles and Afro-diasporic musical roots provide access to a sublime black aesthetic.” —New York Times Book Review
