The Gringa by Andrew Altschul

It is 1998 and Leonora Gelb, a passionate and idealistic Stanford grad, is determined to make a difference. While working in the slums of Lima, Peru, she falls into the orbit of a Marxist revolutionary group; when they are eventually captured, Gelb is sentenced to life in a Peruvian prison.

Ten years later, Andres—an aimless American expat novelist—is asked to write a journalistic profile of “La Leo.” In flight from problems of his own, he struggles to understand Leonora, to reconstruct her involvement with the militants, and to chronicle Peru’s violent history.

“Challenges the boundaries between activism and insurrection, fiction and reality … Altschul’s ambitious and culturally aware novel is a captivating depiction of passion, disenchantment, and hope gone violently awry.” —Booklist STARRED Review

“Psychologically rich and closely observed … A sensitive portrayal of the search for meaning in an unforgiving world.” Kirkus


The Immortals of Tehran by Ali Araghi
Available 4/7/2020

As a child living in his family’s apple orchard, Ahmad Torkash-Vand treasures his great-great-great-great grandfather’s every mesmerizing word. On the day of his father’s death, Ahmad listens closely as the seemingly immortal elder tells him the tale of a centuries-old family curse . . . and the boy’s own fated role in the story.

Ahmad grows up to suspect that something must be interfering with his family, as he struggles to hold them together through decades of famine, loss, and political turmoil in Iran. As the world transforms around him, each turn of Ahmad’s life is a surprise: from street brawler, to father of two unusually gifted daughters; from radical poet, to politician with a target on his back. These lives, and the many unforgettable stories alongside his, converge and catch fire at the center of the Revolution.

“A poignant story of love, loss, and social upheaval.” —Library Journal (STARRED)

“Impactful … the narrative of Ahmad’s journey is engrossing. Araghi’s skillful combination of revolutionary politics and magical realism will please fans of Alejo Carpentier.” —Publishers Weekly


The Revisionaries by A. R. Moxon

Hailed “A modern-day classic” by Ron Charles of The Washington Post, The Revisionaries is a wildly imaginative, masterfully rendered, and suspenseful tale that conjures the bold outlandishness stylishness of Thomas Pynchon, Margaret Atwood, and Alan Moore—while being unlike anything that’s come before.



“I was baffled, dazzled, angered and awed … I adored it … a modern day classic … equally audacious and brilliant …. Moxon is a literary demon.” —Ron Charles, Washington Post

A spectacular invention … [Moxon is] a wildly gifted inventor … Engrossing …” —The New York Times

“I’m almost irritated by how much I enjoyed it… It is, by turns and often at once, surreal, absurd, horrifying, earnest and satirical … written with a playful elegance … I’m astonished by how compulsively readable it is.” —NPR
