A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra which is set to be released by Hogarth on 7 May 2013 is receiving rave early reviews, so I am excited to be part of the TLC Book Tour for this title (my stop 3rd June). I have heard it being compared favourably to Tea Obreht’s The Tiger’s Wife.
The Flute Player by Shawn Mihalik is a coming of age young adult novella recently released by Asymmetrical Press. I don’t mind a bit of magical realism every now and then and this one sounds particularly charming.
Another title from Hogarth, This is Paradise by Kristiana Kahakauwila is a short story collection set for release on 9 July 2013. This collection of stories set in Hawaii, written by Kristiana, a native Hawaiian, is said to be a literary and impressive debut.
