Monkey Grip by Helen Garner

Releases February 20

"From her spare, carefully-rendered novels that draw inspiration from her own life; to her closely-reported works of nonfiction; to her rapturously engaging diaries; she's truly a writer that defies categorization, but The New York Times put it best when they called her "a master anatomist of ordinary people in difficult times..." — Lisa Lucas, Senior Vice President and Publisher at Pantheon Books

I Heard Her Call My Name by Lucy Sante

Releases February 13

"This book is a small but mighty engine for generating empathy, insight, and ultimately inspiration – there’s great pathos in taking on board how hard it is to be misaligned in such a fundamental way, and joyful admiration in seeing Sante finally, after all those years, grasp the nettle and do the hard, needful thing...I love this book, and am so excited to be on the cusp of publishing it."  – Scott Moyers, Vice President and Publisher at Penguin Press

The Great Divide by Cristina Henríquez

Releases March 5

"I stayed up late reading this sweeping epic, crying as I reached the ending we all learned in school: a boat did indeed sail through the Canal. Everything in the pages between was a revelation to me...Two years later, those characters still feel like beloved friends to me. And when I pick up the book, I still get the feeling all over again..." — Sara Birmingham, Senior Editor at Ecco.

Great Expectations by Vinson Cunningham

Releases March 12

"Great Expectations is literary fiction about one young man and his country as he works at the outer, outer edges of the inner circle of American political power. Bryan Washington, author of Memorial, calls it 'a phenomenal, transfixing work.' And I enthusiastically agree with Raven Leilani, author of Luster, when she says, 'I always look forward to reading Vinson’s work...'"  – David Ebershoff, Vice President and Editor-in-Chief at Hogarth
