Not One Day: An intimate, sensuous exploration of memory and desire, delving into loves and lusts past, by award-winning Oulipo member Anne Garréta.
Misadventure: A bracing debut collection that maps what happens when desire and control between men goes awry. In Misadventure, men search for themselves, for each other, for the sources of sanity and sickness, power and grief. Grider challenges the conventional gay narrative and asks the reader to reimagine the kind of work short fiction should do.
Girls Lost: An award-winning, magical contemporary novel of three adolescent girls' friendship, exploring the transformation of bodies as a battlefield in the construction of self.
The Large Glass: Featuring three different autobiographies, The Large Glass challenges the absurd and hubristic project of the autobiography itself. Mario Bellatin’s The Large Glass deconstructs the very form it embraces, revealing the artifice of the autobiographical genre, while cleverly celebrating the importance of the stories we tell about ourselves.
