EXIT WEST | Mohsin Hamid
978-1-4104-9948-6 | $35.99 U.S. | Hardcover
978-1-4328-4765-4 | $16.00 U.S. | Softcover

“Spellbinding.” — starred, Booklist

“Timely and resonant.” — Publisher’s Weekly, Top 10 Most-Anticipated Literary Fiction of 2017

“[H]eartbreakingly relevant.” —Library Journal

“It was as if Hamid knew what was going to happen to America and the world, and gave us a roadmap to our future . . . This book blew the top off my head. It’s at once terrifying and, in the end, oddly hopeful.”  — New York Times Book Review

SING, UNBURIED, SING | Jesmyn Ward
978-1-4328-4652-7 | $36.99 U.S. | Hardcover

“. . . their stories are deeply affecting, in no small part because of Ward’s brilliant writing and compassionate eye.” — starred, Publishers Weekly

“Lyrical yet tough, Ward’s distilled language effectively captures the hard lives, fraught relationships, and spiritual depth of her characters.” — starred, Library Journal

Sing, Unburied, Sing is many things: a road novel, a slender epic of three generations and the ghosts that haunt them, and a portrait of what ordinary folk in dire circumstances cleave to as well as what they — and perhaps we all — are trying to outrun.” — New York Times Book Review

GRANT | Ron Chernow
978-1-4328-4959-7 | $40.00 U.S. | Hardcover

“[A] beautifully written portrait. . . . Chernow doesn’t gloss over Grant’s struggle with alcoholism or his tendency to trust shady operators.  However, his willingness to protect the gains of freemen and to fight the KKK was an example of the moral courage he consistently displayed.  This is a superb tribute to Grant, whose greatness is earning increased appreciation.” — starred, Booklist

“The definitive biography for the foreseeable future.” — Publishers Weekly

“As Americans continue the struggle to defend justice and equality in our tumultuous and divisive era, we need to know what Grant did when our country’s very existence hung in the balance. If we still believe in forming a more perfect union, his steady and courageous example is more valuable than ever.” — New York Times Book Review
