A Little Lumpen Novelita by Roberto Bolaño

lumpen

I know what you’re thinking: Really? New Directions published another book by Roberto Bolaño? How many more are there? Is the guy writing from beyond the grave? Do readers need another hundred-page Bolaño novella that can be read in one sitting? The answer to that question is yes.

Cold Antler Farm by Jenna Woginrich

cold antler farm

There are no crowds in Cold Antler Farm, only six acres of pure, organic nature with chickens, pigs, goats, horses, dogs, and sheep. Between stories of escaping livestock, old traditions, new friends, festivals, farming and hunting, Woginrich shares some of her favorite recipes and a whole lot of wisdom.

The Heaven of Animals by David James Poissant

These stories are wild without being ridiculous, so they never feel like a hollow experiment. They’re intimate and real, but you never get the sense that Poissant is merely transcribing autobiography. They’re heartbreakingly sad and they’re laugh-out-loud funny.

The Universe edited by John Brockman

Universe

If your understanding of the universe is mostly based on Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time, then you should read The Universe, because a lot has changed in the past twenty years.
