              A bold and playful collection of erotic stories written by some of the world's finest writers. The twist? Each story is anonymous, allowing for tales as subtle or explicit, strange or familiar, tender or fierce as each writer wishes--leaving readers to guess who wrote what. Welco...me to the ultimate literary parlor game--a collection of unattributed erotic stories written by a stellar list of authors, including winners of the Pulitzer Prize, National Book Awards, PEN Awards, the Women's Prize for Fiction, Edgar Awards, and more. Anthology editors Hillary Jordan and Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan present an elegant, international collection of erotica, that explores the diverse spectrum of desire. There are stories of sexual obsession and sexual love, of domination and submission. There's revenge sex, unrequited sex, funny sex, tortured sex, fairy tale sex, and even sex in the afterlife. This seductive anthology is true to its name: while the authors are listed in alphabetical order at the beginning of the book, none of the stories are attributed, providing readers with a glimpse into the landscape of sexuality as explored by twenty-seven of today's best-known authors. Contributors include: Robert Olen Butler, Catherine Chung, Trent Dalton, Heidi Durrow, Tony Eprile, Louise Erdrich, Jamie Ford, Julia Glass, Peter Godwin, Hillary Jordan, Rebecca Makkai, Valerie Martin, Dina Nayeri, Chigozie Obioma, Tea Obreht, Helen Oyeyemi, Mary-Louise Parker, Victoria Redel, Jason Reynolds, S.J.

              From the acclaimed author of Red Island House, Andrea Lee's brilliant, outrageous collection of short stories confronts identity, desire, colliding cultures, and self-discovery. In vivid prose infused with wicked irony, award-winning author Andrea Lee takes us into the hearts and... minds of a number of extraordinary women--intelligent, beautiful, self-possessed--who, with wit and style, grapple with questions of identity in an increasingly connected world where everyone has become, in some way, a foreigner. In The Birthday Present, a loyal and conventional American wife explores the wilder shores of marital devotion by giving her Italian husband a costly present. Winter Barley is the account, alternately lyrical and perverse, of the brief love affair in Scotland between an elderly European prince and a thoroughly modern New England beauty half his age. And in the collection's title story, Interesting Women, a woman on vacation in Thailand reflects with wry detachment on the confessional relationships that spring up between women ( another day, another soul laid bare ), before falling into one herself, which culminates in a hilarious and absurd odyssey through the jungle. Lee's beautifully crafted stories offer a rare combination: a sensual evocation of the moment, and profound insight into the underlying struggles--of gender, race, and class--that continue to shape our world. Critically acclaimed when it was first published, this collection is ready to be embraced by a new generation of readers.

              You Made Me Love You: Selected Stories, 1981-2018 (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              A powerful and stunning (Publishers Weekly, starred review) selection of the best of John Edgar Wideman's short stories over his fifty-year career, representing the wide range of his intellectual and artistic pursuits. When John Edgar Wideman won the PEN Malamud Award in 2019, he... joined a list of esteemed writers--from Eudora Welty to George Saunders--all of whom are acknowledged masters of the short story. Wideman's commitment to short fiction has been lifelong, and here he gathers a representative selection from throughout his career, stories that have a wary, brooding spirit, a lonely intelligence...[and] air the problem of consciousness, including the fragile contingency of our existence (The New York Times). Wideman's stories are grounded in the streets and the people of Homewood, the Pittsburgh neighborhood of his childhood, but they range far beyond there, to the small western towns of Wyoming and historic Philadelphia, the contemporary world and the ancient past. He explores the interior lives of his characters, and the external pressures that shape them. These stories are as intellectually intricate as they are rich with the language and character. Wideman has been compared to William Faulkner and James Baldwin...[these] prove that he is every bit as masterful a cartographer of the American spirit as his forebears (Esquire). Comprised of thirty-five stories drawn from past collections (American Histories, Briefs, God's Gym, All Stories Are True, Fever, and Damballah), and an introductory essay by the National Book Critics Circle board member and scholar Walton Muyumba, this volume of Wideman's selected stories celebrates the lifelong significance of this major American writer's essential contribution to a form--illuminating the ways that he has made it his own. If there were any doubts Wideman belongs to the American canon, this puts them to bed (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

              From the author of the jaunty, heartbreaking winner (People) and international bestseller Dear Mrs. Bird, a new charming and uplifting novel set in London during World War II about a plucky aspiring journalist. London, November 1941. Following the departure of the formidable Henr...ietta Bird from Woman's Friend magazine, things are looking up for Emmeline Lake as she takes on the challenge of becoming a young wartime advice columnist. Her relationship with boyfriend Charles (now stationed back in the UK) is blossoming, while Emmy's best friend Bunty, still reeling from the very worst of the Blitz, is bravely looking to the future. Together, the friends are determined to Make a Go of It. When the Ministry of Information calls on Britain's women's magazines to help recruit desperately needed female workers to the war effort, Emmy is thrilled to be asked to step up and help. But when she and Bunty meet a young woman who shows them the very real challenges that women war workers face, Emmy must tackle a life-changing dilemma between doing her duty and standing by her friends. Every bit as funny, heartwarming, and touching as Dear Mrs. Bird, Yours Cheerfully is a celebration of friendship--a testament to the strength of women and the importance of lifting each other up, even in the most challenging times.

              Never Let Me Go meets Black Mirror in this thrilling dystopian debut about a tech company that deletes unwanted memories, the consequences for those forced to contend with what they tried to forget, and the dissenting doctor who seeks to protect her patients from further harm. Wh...at if you once had a painful memory removed? And what if you were offered the chance to get it back? Tell Me an Ending follows four characters grappling with the question of what to remember--and what they hoped to forget forever. Finn, an Irish architect living in the Arizona desert, begins to suspect his charming wife of having an affair. Mei, a troubled grad school drop-out in Kuala Lumpur, wonders why she remembers a city she's never visited. William, a former police inspector in England, struggles with PTSD, the breakdown of his marriage, and his own secret family history. Oscar, a handsome young man with almost no memories at all, travels the world in a constant state of fear. Into these characters lives comes Noor, an emotionally closed-off psychologist at the memory removal clinic in London, who begins to suspect her glamorous boss Louise of serious wrongdoing. Clever and propulsive, Tell Me an Ending is a speculative novel exploring what the world would be like if we were able to wipe away our worst moments. In this polyphonic tale, author Jo Harkin raises provocative questions about the nature of memory, through characters who confront new knowledge about themselves and a need for answers, meaning, connection, and story.

How do the other residents of Wharton learn to live with loss, and find happiness again? An emotionally powerful debut that immerses the reader into a community of friends, family, and neighbors, A Little Hope celebrates the importance of small moments of connection and the ways that love and forgiveness can help us survive even the most difficult of life's challenges.

              From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of All the Light We Cannot See, perhaps the most bestselling and beloved literary fiction of our time, comes a triumph of imagination and compassion, a soaring novel about children on the cusp of adulthood in a broken world, who find resilie...nce, hope, and story. The heroes of Cloud Cuckoo Land are trying to figure out the world around them: Anna and Omeir, on opposite sides of the formidable city walls during the 1453 siege of Constantinople; teenage idealist Seymour in an attack on a public library in present day Idaho; and Konstance, on an interstellar ship bound for an exoplanet, decades from now. Like Marie-Laure and Werner in All the Light We Cannot See, Anna, Omeir, Seymour, and Konstance are dreamers and outsiders who find resourcefulness and hope in the midst of peril. An ancient text--the story of Aethon, who longs to be turned into a bird so that he can fly to a utopian paradise in the sky--provides solace and mystery to these unforgettable characters. Doerr has created a tapestry of times and places that reflects our vast interconnectedness--with other species, with each other, with those who lived before us and those who will be here after we're gone. Dedicated to the librarians then, now, and in the years to come, Cloud Cuckoo Land is a hauntingly beautiful and redemptive novel about stewardship--of the book, of the Earth, of the human heart.
