New & Noteworthy
Praise for The Resisters
Inventive, funny, and tender, The Resisters is about family, baseball, and the future—but more than anything, it is about freedom, and it is about us—here, now.
Allegra Goodman, author of The Chalk Artist
Praise for The Lucky Star
This big, underwater-lit novel returns Vollmann’s work to the dive bars and gender-fluid clubs of San Francisco . . . Vollmann admirably captures the pull of vulnerability and invention, how sex can be, in the right space, a powerful way to know one’s self, and ultimately, how much each of his characters here needs a space to be themselves.
Lit Hub, Most Anticipated 2020
Praise for Snowden's Box
[Snowden’s Box] reads like a thriller, as well as a cautionary tale, because beyond this drama’s handful of players are all of us—and what’s happened to our data, our privacy, and our political agency.
Rebecca Solnit, author of Recollections of My Nonexistence: A Memoir
Praise for Apeirogon
All I can really tell you is, read McCann’s book. It’s an important book. It’s quite possibly a great book.
Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours
Praise for Writers and Lovers
Writers & Lovers stole my heart from its first pages. I am in love with this book. In. Love. This deep dive of a novel will stay with me forever.
Elin Hilderbrand, author of Summer of ’69
