Jamel Brinkley’s debut story collection, A Lucky Man, is a finalist for the 2018 National Book Award. “It is one of those collections that takes your breath away: the voices we hear, the people we meet, they scratch and pull and ache and rage, revealing secrets we usually keep hidden,” wrote Daniel Alarcón. “Every line is pitch perfect.” Valeria Luiselli’s Lost Children Archive is an American road-trip novel that weaves the voices of a mother and her son with a collection of texts and images telling earlier tales of migration and displacement. “She is a writer of formidable talent, destined to be an important voice in Latin American letters,” wrote Alarcón. “Her vision and language are precise, and the power of her intellect is in evidence on every page.”
