Libertie: A Novel Cover Image
$26.95
ISBN: 9781616207014
Availability: Ships quickly (1-7 days)
Published: Algonquin Books - March 30th, 2021

I love a story that centers on the agency of women and girls. Libertie is reared by her doctor mother--a free black woman in a free black community during Reconstruction--to be strong and independent. But she can't understand the forces that her mother tries to warn her about, and she feels she will never measure up. She sets out almost blindly to find her way. The historical setting is new to me but the archetypal theme, so rarely explored, of the tension between a strong, independent woman and her daughter, is familiar and a welcome antidote to all the fiction that centers a love interest in a female character's life. Highly Recommend! - Kris

Published: Celadon Books - May 4th, 2021

Imagine being accused of murder, but remaining completely silent. That is exactly what Alicia Berenson does; she does not defend herself, offer any explanation, nor give any testimony at her trial. Instead she is put into a psych ward because of her unusual behavior. Then you have her enthusiastic psychotherapist, Theo Faber, whose motivations and mental stability you start to question mid-way through the novel. This book kept me on edge until the very last page. It was highly suspenseful with two unreliable narrators. I thought it was a very clever story line, which seemed well-thought out and researched in regards to all the psychiatric details. I recommend it to lovers of Gillian Flynn, Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen, and JP Delaney.  - Amanda

Black Leopard, Red Wolf is known for its gripping story and the monstrous creatures plucked from African mythology. But it's also a clever critique of racist American culture. (James has referred to it as a "Black Lord of the Rings.") The commentary never bleeds into the action; it purrs in the background like a hidden jungle cat. For example, keep an eye out for his skewed depictions of Batman and Spider-Man. - Jeff

This copy was an advanced reader’s copy provided by the publisher and thus is not the same as the final product coming out April 2021. I was a bit dismissive of this book at first glance but once I opened it up and began to read, I felt ashamed of my earlier attitude. I felt the gut punch of 2016 once more, a sinking nauseated morass that made me have to think hard about what day and year it really was, the feeling was so intense. The subtitle and description of the book may say that is just a series of illustrated essays, but it is much more than that. It is a journey through what may be from all views, a regular middle age liberal family, but is in reality the choked voice in all of us wondering at the cruelty of the world and what can we do as parents, sisters, brothers, children, humans to combat this cruelty. How does one come to grips with what 2016 illuminated to many? There were two sections that struck me the hardest. One, Nate Powell examined his own upbringing and generation. How the trajectory of America was presented as slowly but surely somehow moving forward in all aspects. How would it do this without input from his small family growing up in the South? That’s not a question that was examined and that he rightly points out, has led to the confusion about how 2016 came about. The second was when he described college towns and their relation to the wider rural areas about them. How one vacillates between hope and despair, how to feel in control of something and how to fight in this day and age, and ultimately how hope can spring eternal and in the most unlikely places. The only way for that hope to spring is through effort and work though. In the end I highly recommend this book if not just for the reminder that the past four years are not something to be forgotten. Protesting the unjust laws and actions of many or few is not something that can be “saved for later.” The urgency is here now. I can’t wait to see the final book! - Alicia

So many things are treated well in this poignantly voiced novel. With sometimes breathless exposition, Hamid plays with the complexity and change within relationships, as he examines (supernaturally-enabled) migration and what it means to be a native of any land. - Danielle

This is a well-researched story, and it shows. The sense of injustice is palpable, the story flows evenly, but varies from the fact-delivering, non-fictional voice as Kate Moore enters into more emotional territory and paints the picture of scenes one could only imagine. Moore tells the Radium Girls' stories through their personalities, hopes, and friendships. A compelling account of another era, the evolution of the rights of the average worker, but especially those working women whose voices they tried, in vain, to suppress and invalidate. - Amanda

Published: Verso - May 22nd, 2018

Detailed, cogent, deeply researched, this book serves to show how events which seem, from the outside and from the vantage of a present far removed, monolithic are anything but. The 20th Century was dominated by the contest of ideologies between a capitalist West and a communist East, and the idea omg "communism" became synonymous with the devil, with slavery, with all the worst nightmares of a dystopia SF imagination, and, ultimately, with failure---and all the time there was little recognition that the horror of Stalinism was as far from communism as is fascism. To label someone a communist still contains the baggage of a misrepresented ideology, which we see played out today in the rabid denunciations by some of socialism, which is almost equally misapprehended. Mieville account of the missteps and tragedies that led to the advent of Stalinism and a failure of the ideals of that first attempt to remake a system from autocratic to genuinely democratic is a good place to begin unlearning the myths and reappraising the realities. It is also another examination of how the minutiae, the conflicts, the personalities, and the unexpected snags in day to day struggle can undo the most ambitious optimism and leave us with inexplicable quagmires. - Mark

Well-researched, eye-opening, excellent. I recommend "The Broken Heart of America" especially to St. Louisans, but really to anyone who wants to better understand the history of racism and colonialism in the United States. Johnson's deep-dive is essentially a "people's history" of the United States using St. Louis as a (very poignant) case study. - Amber
