Maylis de Kerangal and Monique Truong

Maylis de Kerangal, acclaimed French author of The Heart, now publishes The Cook—“a bountiful, beautifully written (and gorgeously translated) ‘Portrait of the Chef as a Young Man,’” wrote The New York Times. “As much about language as it is about mackerel with fresh raspberries, its pages overflow with catalogs of fruits and fish, of butters and instruments.” Monique Truong’s new novel, The Sweetest Fruits, reimagines the Greek-Irish writer Lafcadio Hearn’s migratory life through the voices of the women who knew him best. “A sublime novel of voyage and reinvention, it will cross horizons, yet remain burrowed in your heart,” wrote Anthony Marra.
