All Fours

Miranda July
Liam HessLiam Hess

The razor-sharp prose of All Fours also offers a warm, generous blend of heartache and humor. Unsurprisingly, it’s already received cosigns from George Saunders and Emma Cline, with the latter hailing it “a brilliant work of art from a completely blown open and fearless mind.

How I Won a Nobel Prize

Julius Taranto
Liam HessLiam Hess

A razor-sharp debut…Taranto’s compelling dissections of moral gray areas and nail-bitingly tense passages of superconductivity experiments make the novel bracingly clever…a viciously funny page-turner with plenty of surprises.”

Foster

Claire Keegan
Liam HessLiam Hess

Balancing Keegan’s delicate, sparing prose and masterful ear for dialogue with a tale that is almost overwhelming in its tenderness, Foster is a heart-wrenching treasure of a book that only serves to confirm Keegan’s place as one of contemporary Irish literature’s leading lights.

Antoine Wilson
