- Trick Mirror by Jia Tolentino – In nine essays, Tolentino writes about our current cultural prism: the rise of the nightmare social internet; the advent of scamming as the definitive millennial ethos; the literary heroine’s journey from brave to blank to bitter; the punitive dream of physical optimization. A true book of our time!
- Inland by Tea Obreht – In the lawless, drought-ridden lands of the Arizona Territory in 1893, two extraordinary lives unfold in this sweeping but little-known history that subverts and reimagines the myths of the American West. By the author of The Tiger’s Wife.

- The Dearly Beloved by Cara Wall – In The Dearly Beloved, we follow two couples called to serve a historic Presbyterian church in Greenwich Village in 1963. A poignant meditation on faith and reason, marriage and children, and the ways we find meaning in our lives.
