COMING IN JUNE

 

In this stunning debut novel set in the final year of Soviet Russia's collapse, a timid Jewish teenage girl reunites with her once-dissident mother and falls in love with a mysterious boy who may be an anti-Semite.

“In Katia Raina’s fascinating and sympathetic Castle of Concrete, the concerns of young adulthood are amplified tenfold against a background of historical upheavals. . . . [A] riveting story about growing up in dark political times.”

RECENTLY RELEASED BOOKS THAT TAKE US
FROM TRUMP’S AMERICA AND PUTIN’S RUSSIA
TO THE MIDDLE EAST

 
 

Welcome to the world of Mikhail Iossel, who grew up in the USSR before settling in the USA. Notes from Cyberground comprises his most trenchant and enduring political & cultural commentary since America’s 2016 presidential election.

“Mikhail Iossel is an intense and thoughtful force for decency in the world.”
George Saunders 

“Mikhail Iossel's Notes from Cyberground is our social media De Profundis with a touch of J'Accuse. Thoughtful, furious, eloquent, these posts are the diary of a writer who left the Soviet Union, stayed in touch with the horrors of the Putin reign, and after the 2016 elections, has experienced a hideous deja vu: a nightmare for someone who knows first hand what a dictatorship looks like.”

A new story collection by one of Hungary’s top writers and war correspondents, set mostly in the contemporary Middle East.

“Hungarian foreign correspondent Jászberényi . . . writes with beautiful ferocity about what he’s seen and how he’s lived on his job, here situating most of his stories in the Middle East. . . . . Brutal but with heart, as shown by the excellent colloquial translation; highly recommended for readers of tough-minded fiction, both literary and popular.” Library Journal (starred review)
