This Week’s Hot Reviews

Sphinx
Anne Garréta, trans. Emma Ramadan | Deep Vellum Publishing | 9781941920091 | April 2015
Sphinx lets us glimpse a world where one may be free to not be defined by gender, or to even evade it altogether, opening up almost infinite possibilities of identification for readers.”—Ploughshares

Zion’s Fiction: A Treasury of Israeli Speculative Literature
Sheldon Teitelbaum, Emanuel Lottem, editors| Mandel Vilar Press | 9781942134527 | September 2018
Zion’s Fiction leaves you wanting more. In their variety and unpredictability, its writers convey a sense of a dynamic and expanding genre.”—Mosaic Magazine

Things to Make and Break
May-Lan Tan | Coffee House Press | 9781566895279 | October 2018
Things to Make and Break is at once about everyone and no one in particular.”—Harvard Crimson

Mephisto’s Walz: Selected Short Stories
Sergio Pitol, trans. George Henson | Deep Vellum Publishing | 9781941920831 | November 2018
“Translating the twists and turns and folds of Sergio Pitol’s sentences must have been no easy feat, which is why George Henson deserves a medal for his work here. Henson renders Pitol’s sentences in a rich mix of formality and informality—fitting for a writer who was both a lawyer and diplomat, someone so used to exacting methods of communication.”—Literal Magazine

Holy Moly Carry Me
Erika Meitner | BOA Editions | 9781942683629 | September 2018
“There are a variety of forms, too, from sonnets to free verse. Ultimately, what carries this collection home are not its formal elements, but a real, honest, scared voice pervading the work, asking questions like: How are we so vulnerable? How do we care for each other? How can we stay safe? Meitner gives voice to the fears of the moment in this portrait of a very unsettled American time.”—Jewish Book Council

Rail
Kai Carson-Wee | BOA Editions | 9781942683582 | April 2018
“Carlson-Wee serves as an able guide to ferry readers through the lives of the homeless, those who have come untethered or been cut loose and who now gather in tent cities and hobo encampments. . . . The poems crackle with energy and vision, and understated critique comprised of irony and a keen eye for the absurdity of a fractured, often disassociated form of existence. . . . With an unflinching gaze, Carlson-Wee recognizes that grappling with the American landscape means wrestling both spirit and flesh.”—Orion Magazine

A Little Drama: Playful Activities for Young Children
Lavinia Roberts | Redleaf Press | 9781605545851
“How does a teacher move from equipping a basic dramatic play center to introducing drama as a regular classroom feature? The first step might be in choosing Lavinia Roberts and her new book as a guide. . . Ever respectful of children, Roberts guides inexperienced early childhood teachers into the unfamiliar, but rewarding, territory of classroom drama, building skills across developmental domains, engendering imagination and creativity, and supporting children as they learn self-regulation, empathy, respect and collaboration in a community of young learners.”—Texas Child Care Quarterly

Death of a Rainmaker: A Dust Bowl Mystery
Laurie Loewenstein | Akashic Books | 9781617756658 | October 2018
“Loewenstein offers vivid storytelling and a fine eye for evoking small-town life in America’s heartland.”—Reading the Past
Brat
Michael DeForge | Koyama Press | 9781927668603 | September 2018
“Michael DeForge’s wonderful new graphic novel Brat mocks both celebrity culture and performances of rebellion.”—New York Journal of Books

First We Surf, Then We Eat: Recipes From a Lifetime of Surf Travel
Jim Kempton | Prospect Park Books | 9781945551338 | September 2018
“The recipes are easy to follow, distinctive and for the most part incredibly healthy. . . . The book itself is so beautifully put together, with delicious food images and iconic surf breaks featured throughout. In every chapter, you will find places worth visiting, people worth knowing and surf worth travelling. . . . Jim’s stories are personal and without even meeting him, you are convinced by the end of the book that you’ve known him your whole life.”—Stu News Laguna

Strange Paradise: Portrait of a Marriage
Grace Schulman | Turtle Point Press | 9781885983527 | August 2018
“Schulman charts her development as a writer and editor through the seismic variations of intimacy with her spouse.” —On the Seawall

Inquiry-Based Early Learning Environments: Creating, Supporting, and Challenging
Susan Stacey | Redleaf Press | 9781605545813 | September 2018
“Examines inquiry in all its facets, including environments that support relationships, that create a culture of risk-taking in our thinking, that support teachers as well as children, that include families, that use documentation as a way of thinking about our work, and of course, the physical environment and all the objects and spaces within it . . . Impressively organized and presented.”—Midwest Book Review

Open-Ended Art for Young Children: Moving Beyond the Basics
Tracy Galuski and Mary Ellen Bardsley | Redleaf Press | 9781605545981 | October 2018
“Goes beyond the basics to highlight why the field of early childhood education advocates for open-ended art and explains how to adapt to new ways of thinking about art. . . . unreservedly recommended.” —Midwest Book Review

HOT Skills: Developing Higher-Order Thinking in Young Learners 
Steffen Saifer | Redleaf Press | 9781605545561 | June 2018
“Breaks down theory into practice so classroom teachers won’t miss an opportunity to help young learners develop logical, critical, and creative thinking skills. Exceptionally organized and thoroughly user friendly in presentation.”—Midwest Book Review

STEAM Concepts for Infants and Toddlers
Nichole A. Baumgart and Linda R. Kroll | Redleaf Press | 9781605545547 | August 2018
“A platform for educators to observe and facilitate infants and toddlers’ natural curiosities around STEAM concepts. The text discusses tangible, rich STEAM learning environments for children from birth through age two and introduces where this learning can go next as children transition into the preschool years.” —Midwest Book Review

Madame Victoria
Catherine Leroux, trans. Lazer Lederhendler | Biblioasis | 9781771962070 | November 2018
“A unique and inherently fascinating approach to narrative storytelling, and ably translated into English by Lazer Lederhendler.”—Midwest Book Review

This Week’s Hot Reviews

Roaming Foliage
Patrick Kyle | Koyama Press | 9781927668641 | October 2018
“Kyle’s visual style is as resistant to the mainstream as his publishing approach. While many artists produce anime-influenced, color-saturated worlds with stable rules and characters, Kyle pushes at the boundaries of acceptability.”—New York Journal of Books

The Whistling Factory
Jesse McManus | Uncivilized Books | 9781941250297 | September 2018

Somnambulance
Fiona Smyth | Koyama Press | 9781927668542 | May 2018
Somnambulance rightfully restores Smyth’s place within the collective history of indie comics.  What is also striking how much her comics are a window into the time in which they were made, but also how they presage ideas that would take another two decades to fully take hold.”—Broken Frontier

Augusta Savage: Renaissance Woman
Jeffreen M. Hayes | GILES | 9781911282228 | October 2018

After the Winter
Guadalupe Nettel | Coffee House Press | 9781566895255 | September 2018
“After the Winter asks big questions about intimacy and desire, happiness and depression, passion and numbness, and, of course, love and loss.”—Southwest Review

My First Music Book: Musical Instruments
Charlotte Ameling | Auzou | 9782733861486 | September 2018
“The bright, colorful illustrations feature animals playing the music and each spread asks the reader to find the instrument they hear as well as search for one other pictured instrument.  The music is high quality and easy on the ear. Each song perfectly captures the scene in the illustration. This is a fun introduction to music for the very young.” –Youth Services Book Review

This Week’s Hot Reviews

Witch Wife
Kiki Petrosino | Sarabande Books | 9781946448033 | December 2017
“There is no moment of Witch Wife that slacks— Petrosino revels in the crafting of sculptural cats-cradle like poems: strange and beautiful, morbid and musical, Witch Wife confirms Petrosino as both magician and master, and certainly one of America’s most fascinating contemporary poets.”—Five Points

Indecency
Justin Phillip Reed | Coffee House Press | 9781566895149 | May 2018
“Reed’s wit and formal experimentation, quicksilver and luminous, shows the world as it is, while detailing how the very people that society most devalues, demeans, and seeks to destroy are its true visionaries.”—Adroit Journal

Good Stock Strange Blood
Dawn Lundy Martin | Coffee House Press | 9781566894715 | August 2017
“Martin charts new possibilities for subverting those (white) structures of domination and control that would reduce black subjectivity to a mute and endless re-inscription of its traumatized collective past.”—Poetry Northwest

Puro Amor
Sandra Cisneros | Sarabande Books | 9781946448217 | October 2018
Puro Amor explores perspective dually, giving readers both an intimate view of the protagonist’s daily life and the perspective of the townspeople looking in. . . . a juxtaposition that gives room for Cisneros to be both silly and reverent in her exploration of the inherent arduousness of partnership, and ultimately to show that animals do give the purest love.”—Arkansas International

The Lake on Fire
Rosellen Brown | Sarabande Books | 9781946448231 | October 2018
“A stunning work of historical fiction, filled with the sights and sounds of the Gilded Age in Chicago.”—Arkansas International

Permanent Exhibit
Matthew Volmer | BOA Editions | 9781942683681 | September 2018
“Several of the essays involve Vollmer riding his bike down a steep hill; we fear, along with him, a catastrophe, a collision. But the collision with which Permanent Exhibit is primarily concerned—that between the private archive of the mind and the public archive of the internet—has already occurred. And rather than catastrophic, this melding of mind and machine can be, as Vollmer says below, ‘magical.’”—Brooklyn Rail

So Many Islands: Stories from the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Indian, and Pacific Oceans
edited by Nicholas Laughlin with Nailah Folami Imoji, introduction by Marlon James | Akashic Books | 9781617756702 | July 2018
“As an anthology, this collection of work is amazingly well-rounded . . . This collection is a unique and worthy addition to any library . . . These writers offer a window into genuine, unglazed local life in far-flung, ill-understood parts of the world. It’s a gift beyond price.”—Sinkhole Magazine

We Are The Clash: Reagan, Thatcher, and the Last Stand of a Band That Mattered
Mark Andersen and Ralph Heibutzki | Akashic Books | 9781617752933 | July 2018
We Are The Clash celebrates the struggle for humanity, both in a band and in the wider world community. Traveling the journey of The Clash’s final years is no train in vain. The benefits of understanding history allow readers to see that the future is unwritten, as long as mistakes from the past are not dutifully repeated, but learned from. . . . Now it’s up to you to get this book and enable your future.”—Slug Magazine

Liza Jane & the Dragon
Laura Lippman, illus. Kate Samworth | Akashic Books | 9781617756610 | October 2018
“Silly, funny and a joy to read. The illustrations are great, too. Get a copy for your little one, they’ll read it more than once!”—Journey of a Bookseller

This Week’s Hot Reviews

Look Both Ways: A Double Journey Along My Grandmother’s Far-Flung Path
Katharine Coles | Turtle Point Press | 9781885983589 | November 2018
“Tense, abundantly researched, and heartbreaking, this narrative drills into a dead marriage and finds characters so alive that they challenge Coles’s perceptions of her own marriage.”—Foreword Reviews

The Meaning of Blood and Other Tales of Perversity
Chuck Caruso | Global Book Sales/Cloud Lodge Books | 9781999587307 | November 2018
The Meaning of Blood promises a descent into a netherworld of blood and perversity, and it delivers on this as well as something even more heinous: the idea that ordinary people crave blood and perversity just as much as violent perverts. . . . Long after the unexpected has been established as the only possible outcome, stories continue to surprise. Prose mimics the camera, microphone, and soundtrack of a movie set, without sacrificing the written word’s unique ability to express characters’ thoughts and feelings.”—Foreword Reviews

In Country
Hugh Martin | BOA Editions | 9781942683704 | November 2018
“In the Iraq edition of wartime for American soldiers, fear of being blown to pieces by hidden explosives frequently loses out to the wiliest enemy of all—boredom. This is the wartime footing—six years in an M1A1 Abrams tank—that Iraq War veteran Hugh Martin makes use of to create his own masterful poetry.”—Foreword Reviews

Permanent Exhibit
Matthew Voller | BOA Editions| 9781942683681 | September 2018
“[O]ffers not only a comment on the digital norms we’ve created but a critique, perhaps, of our failure to fully explore the creative possibilities such spaces offer us.”—Fiction Advocate

The Caregiver: Poems
Caroline Johnson | Holy Cow! Press | 9780998601038 | May 2018
“Offer[s] honest and moving accounts of [Johnson’s] own journey as caregiver to her aging parents.”—Michigan Quarterly Review

The Fifth Woman
Nona Caspers | Sarabande Books | 9781946448170 | August 2018
“[I]ncredible. . . The Fifth Woman is an ecosystem of grief; a circular cloud of emotion, memory, and experience that bends towards the surreal, exploring, or so it seems, every nook and cranny of the aftermath of the death of a loved one.”—Empty Mirror

The Moment Before Drowning
James Brydon | Akashic Books | 9781617756252 | July 2018
“James Brydon’s brilliant The Moment Before Drowning isn’t an easy read. Not because of its style, which is sensuous and elegant, but because of its subject matter: the brutality behind war’s front lines. . . . [a] heart-wrenching novel.”—Mystery Scene Magazine

Clues from the Animal Kingdom
Christopher Kennedy | BOA Editions | 9781942683643 | September 2018
“Kennedy’s words elicit emotional pangs that leave us more truthful than we were before. It is the lucidity of his language, the emotional force of his poems, that leave such a remarkable impression.”—Heavy Feather Review

Flem
Rebecca Rosen | Conundrum Press | 9781772620283 | October 2018
“A layered, colourful, and addictive piece of hallucinogenic comic art on the world. It is a book that deeply penetrates your body and settles in your bloodstream like a clot. It gives you a beating, moves and yet disturbs you.”—Bruzz
