  • The Tiger Flu: A Novel

    The Tiger Flu: A Novel

    Lai, Larissa

    "In this visionary novel by Larissa Lai--her first in sixteen years--a community of parthenogenic women, sent into exile by the male-dominated Salt Water City, goes to war against disease, technology, and powerful men that threaten them with extinction. Kirilow is a doctor apprentice whose lover Peristrophe is a "starfish," a woman who can regenerate her own limbs and organs, which she uses to help her clone sisters whose organs are failing. When a denizen from Salt Water City suffering from a mysterious flu comes into their midst, Peristrophe becomes infected and dies, prompting Kirilow to travel to Salt Water City, where the flu is now a pandemic, to find a new starfish who will help save her sisters. There, Kirilow meets Kora, a girl-woman desperate to save her family from the epidemic. Kora has everything Kirilow is looking for, except the will to abandon her own family. But before Kirilow can convince her, both are kidnapped by a group of powerful men to serve as test subjects for a new technology that can cure the mind of the body. Bold, beautiful, and wildly imaginative, The Tiger Flu is at once a female hero's saga, a cyberpunk thriller, and a convention-breaking cautionary tale--a striking metaphor for our complicated times."--Amazon.com.

  • Two Moons: Stories

    Two Moons: Stories

    Smith, Krystal A.

    A splendid debut collection of speculative fiction that traverses the connections between earth and the heavens, the living and the spectral, human and animal. In "Cosmic," a former drug addict has a chance to redeem herself and restore honor to her family's name. In "Harvest," a woman tasked with providing for her community ponders her inability to bear live children. In the title story, "Two moons," a young woman falls in love with the moon, and is astonished by the moon's response. In "What the heart wants," a rejected lover discovers that her physical and emotional desires are incongruent with the organ pumping blood through her veins.

  • History of Violence

    History of Violence

    Louis, Édouard

    "On Christmas Eve 2012, in Paris, the novelist u00c9douard Louis was raped and almost murdered by a man he had just met. This act of violence left Louis shattered; its aftermath made him a stranger to himself and sent him back to the village, the family, and the past he had sworn to leave behind. A bestseller in France--challenged and vindicated in the courts--History of Violence is a short nonfiction novel in the tradition of Truman Capote's In Cold Blood, but with the victim as its subject. Moving seamlessly and hypnotically between past and present, between Louis's voice and the voice of an imagined narrator, History of Violence has the exactness of a police report and the searching, unflinching curiosity of memoir at its best. It records not only the casual racism and homophobia of French society but also their subtle effects on lovers, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives. It represents a great step forward for a young writer whose acuity, skill, and depth are unmatched by any novelist of his generation, in French or English."--Amazon.com (7/24/2019 2:42:09 AM)
