An Enemy Such as This: Larry Casuse and the Fight for Native Liberation in One Family on Two Continents over Three Centuries by David Correia (Haymarket Books, April 2022)

This Week’s News and Reviews

Tender by Ariana Harwicz, trans. Annie McDermott and Carolina Orloff (Charco Press, February 2022)

This Week’s News and Reviews

Warning to the Crocodiles by Antonio Lobo Antunes, trans. Karen C. Sherwood Sotelino (Dalkey Archive Press, September 2021)
“I return again and again to Lobo Antunes’s fictive worlds because, with his use of pitch black humor and his precise attention to humanity (and the ways humans can be humiliated) against a broader historical backdrop—this supposedly impossible fusion of aestheticism and social reference—his fictive worlds seem inexhaustible.”—Full Stop

The Vanished Collection by Pauline Baer de Perignon, trans. Natasha Lehrer (New Vessel Press, January 2022)
“This true story of a single, ‘forgotten’ episode in a long-running series of art-restitution sagas reveals how an inexperienced, self-taught investigator uncovered a Nazi-era art theft through clever detection and extraordinary persistence . . . She also untangles the roots of her own uncomfortable heritage as a Jew in post-WW2 Paris.”—Art & Object

Cane Warriors by Alex Wheatle (Akashic Books/Black Sheep) was shortlisted for the UK’s “longest running and best-loved book awards for children and young people,” the Yoto Carnegie Greenaway Awards.
