From the book:
There was a constant parade of faces, of shoes by the door, of bags and suitcases. None of these people were ever introduced to me, so I never quite understood who they were. Besides, they stayed only a day or so. A young girl with her grandmother. A pair of soft-voiced men.
In the years following her mother’s death, Shalini finds herself wondering about a traveling salesman they used to know, someone who succeeded in charming her mother when others could not. She moves from her comfortable home in contemporary Bangalore, India, to mountainous, war-torn Kashmir in search of him but is soon confronted with histories more political than personal. As she navigates her own shifting beliefs, which remain tinged with the ignorance of privilege, danger looms. Published by Grove Press on Jan. 15.
From the book:
Before every attack the hawk says to the hen, “Keep your chicks close to your bosoms, for my talons are soaked in blood.”
My host was gazing at the fleeing hawk, full of rage, when Ndali opened the net door and entered the backyard.
“What happened? Why did you run out so fast?"
“A hawk,” he said without looking back.
An ancient Igbo guardian spirit tells a modern-day myth with echoes of Homer’s “Odyssey”: Chinonso is a solitary Nigerian chicken farmer who, in an attempt to make himself worthy of the woman he loves, sells everything he owns and makes his way to Cyprus to attend school. Once there, though, he realizes he’s been tricked and, now that he’s farther than ever from what he knows and wants, must somehow find his way home again. Published by Little, Brown on Jan. 8.
From the book:
Things made me sentimental: a pair of sprinting spikes, a tennis racquet, sheet music on the music stand, a small acrylic painting of California golden poppies, a stuffed baby giraffe that had lost all its filling — I had sewn the tear back together but the giraffe remained skinny and floppy — a handmade print of a purple penguin with a bowler hat. Time made me sentimental: days and nights, minutes and hours, moments that threaten to become eternity.
Over the course of hypothetical conversations with her son, who committed suicide when he was a teenager, a mother tries to make sense of her grief and — as she is also a writer — the limited language she has to describe it. Covering topics by turns mundane and abstract, from the baking of a pie to the mercilessness of time, they volley many questions back and forth, the most pressing of hers being why?

From the book:
I have played many criminals,
but no one like her, who fell asleep in a hotel room with the police officer gazing at her, in love. If I played her role,
I imagine walking through Causeway Bay in 1929, my cigarette lighting my way, the most conspicuous woman in the world.
With this collection, Mao interrogates the intricacies of being put on display without actually being seen, presenting a suite of poems in which Anna May Wong, the Chinese-American actress often made to play stereotypical caricatures in 20th-century Hollywood films, lives on. In “Anna May Wong Dreams of Wong Kar-Wai,” quoted above, the actress imagines herself as one of the filmmaker’s mournful heroines, stating, “I praise a story of heartbreak. I praise / how beauty looks during a blackout.” Published by Graywolf Press on Jan. 15.
From the book:
There was a big tent with the usual sideshows as well. Balloons, pinwheels, yo-yos all glistened warmly in the light of the strings of naked bulbs. My daughter and I scooped tiny goldfish into a plastic bag, we fished for water balloons, we had a try at the shooting gallery.
After her marriage falls apart, a woman is left to invent a new life for herself. Simple tasks and conversations become difficult, and at risk of losing her sanity in addition to her husband, she shuts herself and her young daughter away in their light-filled apartment, on the top floor of a sparsely filled office building in Tokyo, where the two oscillate between acting out their pain and managing to find joy in one another.

About the artists: Scott and Tyson Reeder are brothers, both represented by Canada gallery in New York, where Scott, who is based in Detroit and makes paintings, sculptures and films with a wry sense of humor — including the painting “Money in Bed” (2006) and the sculpture “Real Fake” (2013) — will have a solo show in the fall. “B-Side of the Moon,” a follow-up exhibition to his feature-length film, “Moon Dust,” which screened at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 2017, is on view until Aug. 4 at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, Wis. Tyson lives in Chicago, where he is an associate professor of painting and drawing at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His paintings depicting surreal landscapes and interiors with offbeat, emotive palettes have been shown at New York’s Jack Hanley Gallery and will be on display at Independent art fair next month. He’s also done curatorial work for venues including New York’s Swiss Institute and Germany’s Kölnischer Kunstverein. The Reeders sometimes collaborate on special performances and projects; in 2004, they organized the group show “Drunk vs. Stoned” for Gavin Brown’s Enterprise in New York.B:
