Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow, by Gabrielle Zevin

Staff Pick

At once a love letter to video games and a love story--of a kind--between two friends whose relationship spans over 30 years, Zevin's novel will charm gamers and non-gamers alike. The narrative focuses on Sadie and Sam, two lifelong video afficionados who met at a children’s hospital and are reunited once they are both in university. Zevin paints their friendship as both endearing and enduring, showing that it's one that weathers the pains of growing up and working together and that, like the book itself, transcends your typical boy-meets-girl plotline.

The continuing translation of Clarice Lispector's oeuvre into English reaches new heights with the release of her complete crónicas--essays--which appeared in a Brazilian newspaper at the peak of her career between 1967 and 1973. These short nonfiction pieces complement Lispector’s brilliant novels and short stories, bringing her trademark passion and flair for observation to a range of topics. Her readers already know her as a writer granted special access to humanity’s inner workings, and this collection only deepens our admiration for her powers.

Severance, by Ling Ma

Staff Pick

When Shen Fever--a fungal infection causing its victims to repeat mindless routines until it kills them--wipes out most of the global population, Candace Chen agrees to stay on as a member of the skeleton crew at her office, a sojourn that leads to her joining a band of the seemingly immune on their journey to the Facility for supplies and refuge from the post-apocalyptic landscape. Though published a year before the COVID-19 pandemic began, this novel is a chilling and sometimes funny commentary on work, memory, and identity in a time of plague and mass death.
