NPR Choice pageJames' prose in this first-rate collection is clean, deep, limpid; the stories she builds throw strange, beautiful light on completely unexpected places. Donoghue's collection of linked stories explores our restless search for belonging, whether it's to a place, a person or even a cause. Watkins' debut collection is a treat. She takes the beauty and the emptiness of the American West and employs it as a backdrop for each meticulously crafted tale. Walter's poignant, comical and marvelous novel brings several figures together in a quest for answers to a host of questions big and little, cosmic and personal. Tenderness and passion are elements as pervasive in Alexie's impressive body of work as his subversive humor, grief and outrage over the exploitation and neglect of indigenous people in the United States.

Basque writer Atxaga's blackly comic novel set in the Congo under the brutal colonial rule of a captain who dreams of Paris and his wife, whose goal is to own seven houses in France, while slaves tap rubber and young girls are kidnapped into brothels. In his Costa Prize—winning novel, Miller has fun with the history of Les Innocents, a cemetery fouling the center of Paris. The book begins on the eve of the French Revolution as Jean-Baptiste Baratte, an ambitious engineer, is hired to get rid of the site casting a deathly pall over the city. Rounding out her loose series about death and isolation, Miller's novel begins with Susan, who, upon learning that her hus-band has been killed, sees the death as punishment for her own voracious sexuality. When a relative wills Susan an enormous mansion full of taxidermied beasts, she moves in and finds the menagerie a comfort.
