by Lauren Oyler

"Here is a book ensconced in the Millenial worldview, but the questions it raises, thanks to Oyler's playful, at times laugh-out-loud funny narration, apply to all of us living in a world that is performed through social media. The hook: our narrator discovers her boyfriend maintains a secret, conspiracy-ridden Instagram account. She is then catapulted into a journey of self-discovery, which is exactly as self-centered as it sounds, which is exactly Oyler's point: we live in a world in which it pays to be self-involved, often at the expense of human connection. If that sounds a little too on-the-nose, rest assured, this book is a comedic gem which revels in a wry, ironic tone. For those who enjoyed Luster by Raven Leilani or The Idiot by Elif Batuman."

Brave and bold, this gorgeously written novel introduces a large cast of characters from various backgrounds in a setting where violence is routine and where survival is defined by boundaries, walls, and checkpoints that force people to live and love within and across them. Buy a signed copy here.

If you had the chance to look one year into the future, would you? For Ben Boyce and Adhi Chaudry, the answer is unequivocally yes. And they're betting everything that you'll say yes, too. Welcome to The Future: a computer that connects to the internet one year from now, so you can see who you'll be dating, where you'll be working, even whether or not you'll be alive in the year to come. By forming a startup to deliver this revolutionary technology to the world, Ben and Adhi have made their wildest, most impossible dream a reality. Once Silicon Valley outsiders, they're now its hottest commodity. Buy a signed copy here.

Göring's Man in Paris: Bruno Lohse (1911–2007) was one of the most notorious art plunderers in history. Appointed by Hermann Göring to Hitler’s art looting agency in Paris, he went on to help supervise the systematic theft and distribution of more than thirty thousand artworks, taken largely from French Jews, and to assist Göring in amassing an enormous private art collection.

The Ravine: In 2009, the acclaimed author of Hitler’s Furies was shown a photograph just brought to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. The documentation of the Holocaust is vast, but there are virtually no images of a Jewish family at the actual moment of murder, in this case by German officials and Ukrainian collaborators. 

Everything is Radiant Between the Hates by Rich Ferguson

Beloved Los Angeles poet/performer Rich Ferguson delivers a tender, complex collection whose 8 sections offer free verse and prose poems ranging from hip satire to elegy and beyond - to gentle mantras that you might repeat to yourself in a parking lot or in bed at night when your obnoxious downstairs neighbor won't quieten down. Bold, generous and self-deprecating, Ferguson's work challenges readers to accept grief and dare - despite it, because of it - to dream of glorious things.
