In The Mars Room, her third novel after the acclaimed Telex from Cuba and The Flamethrowers, Rachel Kushner introduces readers to Romy Hall as she begins serving two consecutive life sentences at Stanville Women’s Correctional Facility. “Kushner presents a dazzling tapestry of contradictory characters, carefully connecting their stories with such astonishing aplomb,” wrote The Boston Globe. Tommy Orange’s debut novel, There There, is the story of twelve unforgettable characters who converge and collide on one fateful day. “There There drops on us like a thunderclap; the big, booming, explosive sound of 21st-century literature finally announcing itself,” wrote Marlon James.
