Psychic orphans, con men, creepy religious cults, a ghost story, and maybe the devil himself? What more could you ask for? Oh, Hunt's prose is also weird, dark, propulsive, menacing, at times hilarious, and always fantastically original.

I am so smitten with Anne Carson. Autobiography of Red is odd, funny, and tender, and manages to make poetry -- of all things -- feel downright suspenseful. Its unforgettable protagonist, the boy/monster Geryon, clawed his way inside my heart and hasn't left yet.

Never thought I could shed so many tears of joy over a book before I even made it past the introduction! adrienne maree brown's Emergent Strategy is a guide to political organizing, an ode to Octavia Butler, and a gorgeously optimistic love song to this weird "humanity" thing we're all doing. It will reshape the way you think about the world.
