“Everything new is old again — rumor-mongering, disinformation campaigns, religious bigotry — in Robert J. Lloyd’s nifty murder mystery loosely based on real events in Restoration England … One of this month’s best thrillers and mysteries.” —The Washington Post on The Bloodless Boy

“Breathless distraction, omnipresent dread and sudden!  glorious!  joy!  This is a work of far-flung imagination and simultaneously the most realistic novel of our times.” —Daniel Handler on Be Here to Love Me at the End of the World

“A page-turner whose dense, fantastical atmosphere lingers long after the read.” Vulture on Strange Beasts of China

Strange Beasts of China feels like a riddle and a parable and a dream, the kind of book you want to get lost in.” The Philadelphia Inquirer on Strange Beasts of China

“The overall effect of Yan’s storytelling is dreamy and hypnotic, sometimes opaque but always captivating. These cryptic but well-told tales offer much to chew on.” Publisher’s Weekly on Strange Beasts of China

“Compelling, comprehensive, meticulously-documented.” —Booklist, Starred Review on The Storm is Upon Us
“Rothschild provides an enlightening history of the QAnon conspiracy theory… a disturbing and well-informed look at the darker side of modern American politics.” —Publishers Weekly on The Storm is Upon Us

“A stunning work of narrative reportage… With profound empathy and a novelistic eye for detail, Vijayan shows us the forgotten people and places in the borderlands and brings us face-to-face with the legacy of colonialism and the stain of extreme violence and corruption. The result is the granular portrait of modern India we’ve been missing.” British Muslim Magazine on Midnight’s Borders

”Full of double- and triple-crosses… ’Northern Heist’s’ deeds and details seem as real as a smashed kneecap, while its stopwatch tension, heightened by present-tense voice, is reminiscent of such classic caper films as ’Rififi’ and ’The Asphalt Jungle’.” The Wall Street Journal on Northern Heist

”Moving and magical, Strange Beasts of China is stunningly alive and unsettling in all the best ways. I am in awe of its bold imagination, endless depth, and philosophical weight. Every page of this book is magnetic.”  —K-Ming Chang, author of Bestiary, on Strange Beasts of China

“A powerful cri de coeur for technological liberation that merits the attention of every consumer of digital services.” —Kirkus Reviews on Privacy is Power

“An essential guide to one of the most pressing modern issues.” —Hannah Fry, author of Hello World, on Privacy is Power

“Josh Greenberg is my kind of nature writer.” —The Wall Street Journal on Trout Water
