Steeped in centuries of Southern mythology from the Georgia coast and culminating in the historic burning of Dungeness mansion, The Fabled Earth is a story of three women connected in different ways to the ghosts and secrets of the past that they must confront or reconcile with in order to forge their own paths. The gentle magic of Alice Hoffman meets the rich details of Kate Morton, all wrapped in southern folklore and charm.


Beautifully told with humor and tenderness, a Norwegian Christmas tale of sisterhood and financial struggles, far-off dreams and tough reality, acclaimed by reviewers and beloved by readers across Europe, where it has been a major bestseller.


An intimate and lyrical celebration of great love, great art, and the sacrifices we make for both.

For fifty years, Abe and Jane have been coming to Central Park; as starry-eyed young lovers, as frustrated and exhausted parents, as artists watching their careers take flight. They came alone when they needed to get away from each other, and together when they had something important to discuss. The park has been their witness for half a century of love. Until now.

Jane is dying, and Abe is recounting their life together as a way of keeping them going: the parts they knew, their courtship and early marriage, their blossoming creative lives, and the parts they didn’t always want to know—the determined young student of Abe’s looking for a love story of her own, and their son Max, who believes his mother chose art over parenthood, and who has avoided love and intimacy at all costs. Told in various points of view, including from Central Park itself, these voices weave in-and-out to paint a portrait as complicated and essential as love itself.

An homage to New York City, to romance and even to loss, This is a Love Story tenderly and suspensefully captures deep truths about life and marriage in radiant prose. It is about love that endures, despite what life throws at us, or perhaps even because of it.


From the award-winning author of Chemistry, a sharp-witted, insightful novel about a marriage as seen through the lens of two family vacations. Keru and Nate first meet in college, brought together by a joke at a Halloween party (would a “great white” costume mean dressing like a shark or a privileged Ivy League student?) and marrying a few years later. Misfits in their own families, they find in each other a feeling of home. Keru is the only child of strict, well-educated Chinese immigrant parents who hold her to impossible standards even as an adult (“To use a dishwasher is to admit defeat,” says her father). Nate is from a rural, white, working class family that has never trusted his intellectual ambitions or—now—the citizenship status of his “foreign” wife. Nevertheless, some years into their marriage, Keru and Nate find themselves incorporating their families into two carefully planned vacations. The results are disastrous and revealing.


Charlie and Vivian’s marriage did not work. The love was there, but there were too many problems, too many struggles. After parting ways, Charlie took off to work on the railroad, becoming accustomed to California living, and Vivian stayed in their small midwestern town. When Charlie returns to Wisconsin forty years later, he’s sure of one thing—he must reconnect with Vivian to pick up the broken pieces of their past. Not sure if she’ll even want to see him again, he takes the risk of finding her, and when he does, the connection is electric. As they rekindle their love, Vivian and Charlie must learn what it means to forgive, rebuild, and eventually find a home in each other.


From New York Times bestselling author Jami Attenberg comes a dazzling novel of family, following a troubled mother and her two daughters over forty years and through a swiftly changing American landscape as they seek lives they can fully claim as their own. The women of the Cohen family are in crisis. Triggered by the death of their patriarch, Rudy, the glue that held them all together, everyone’s lives soon take a dramatic turn. Shelly, the younger of the two Cohen sisters, runs off to the West Coast to immerse herself in the emerging (and lucrative) world of technology. Her sister, Nancy, gets married at the age of twenty-one to a traveling salesman with a shadowy lifestyle, while their mother, Frieda, hurls herself into a boozy, troubled existence in Miami, trying to forget the past even as it haunts her. But they each learn in different ways that running from the past can’t save you—and then must make life-altering decisions about what they want their family to be and what they need to move forward. Beginning in the 1970s and spanning forty years, A Reason to See You Again takes the reader on a kaleidoscopic journey through motherhood, the American workforce, the tech industry, the self-help movement, inherited trauma, the ever-evolving ways we communicate with one another, and the many unexpected forms that love can take.


A once-famous ballerina faces a final choice—to return to the world of Russian dance that nearly broke her, or to walk away forever—in this incandescent novel of redemption and love. On a White Night in 2019, prima ballerina Natalia Leonova returns to St. Petersburg two years after a devastating accident stalled her career. Once the most celebrated dancer of her generation, she now turns to pills and alcohol to numb the pain of her past. She is unmoored in her old city as the ghosts of her former life begin to resurface: her loving but difficult mother, her absentee father, and the two gifted dancers who led to her downfall. One of those dancers, Alexander, is the love of her life, who transformed both Natalia and her art. The other is Dmitri, a dark and treacherous genius. When the latter offers her a chance to return to the stage in her signature role, Natalia must decide whether she can again face the people responsible for both her soaring highs and darkest hours. Painting a vivid portrait of the Russian ballet world, where cutthroat ambition, ever-shifting politics, and sublime artistry collide, City of Night Birds unveils the making of a dancer with both profound intimacy and breathtaking scope. Mysterious and alluring, passionate and virtuosic, Juhea Kim’s second novel is an affecting meditation on love, forgiveness, and the making of an artist in a turbulent world.


A novel of money and morality from the New York Times bestselling author of Leave the World Behind. Brooke wants. She isn’t in need, but there are things she wants. A sense of purpose, for instance. She wants to make a difference in the world, to impress her mother along the way, to spend time with friends and secure her independence. Her job assisting an octogenarian billionaire in his quest to give away a vast fortune could help her achieve many of these goals. It may inspire new desires as well: proximity to wealth turns out to be nothing less than transformative. What is money, really, but a kind of belief?

Taut, unsettling, and alive to the seductive distortions of money, Entitlement is a riveting tale for our new gilded age, a story that confidently considers questions about need and worth, race and privilege, philanthropy and generosity, passion and obsession. It is a provocative, propulsive novel about the American imagination.


This book will rip readers’ hearts to shreds. Much like Broadchurch, Every Moment Since zeros in on a small Southern community where eleven-year-old Davy Malcor went missing in 1985. At once a family drama and a literary mystery, the novel opens when Davy’s distinct jacket is found twenty-one years later, and everyone is left grappling with their roles in what really happened that night. Deftly handling both grief and hope, nostalgia and tragedy, Whalen’s latest is an emotionally raw and gripping story that reminds readers that sometimes all one can do is take the next breath.

His first film is about to be released, and he and his beloved wife Jesse, a successful writer herself, have just had a baby.

Spanning decades, from LA to Chicago, and told through multiple perspectives, this powerful, provocative novel delves into one life-changing night and the complex lives and relationships of those affected by it, exploring how race, artistic ambition, and grief expose different versions of the same story.
