“Basically, for as long as I’ve lived in Aunty, I’ve always been, like, this inexplicable thing, a mystery object that’s not like anyone else at this school,” Mariko Tamaki writes in her new book Saving Montgomery Sole. “I guess it’s possible that that’s part of why I’m so obsessed with other inexplicable things. With other unsolved mysteries.” Read our feature on this beautiful new book! http://ow.ly/4ncPqC

In his new book, Ghetto, Mitchell Duneier explores the long history behind the word which stretches farther back than the modern use and encompasses not only African-Americans but also Jewish peoples and Europeans. Says Duneier, it is "important to understand this long history [of the word]." http://ow.ly/4mWKnZ

There are some books which we dive into that unexpectedly become magnetized to our hands, that cause time to slip by like liquid, and that stay in our minds even after the cover is closed. Here is a list of 7 Books We Didn't Expect to Fall in Love With. http://ow.ly/10FiY9

Molly Prentiss' sweeping debut novel 'Tuesday Nights in 1980' follows three intertwining lives through the swirling energy, burning excitement, and crushing disappointment of New York City’s rapidly shifting art world at the dawn of the 1980s. "There’s a lot from my life in the book, and my experience moving to New York especially influenced it—that mix of ecstatic revelation and then also total disgust and the feeling of why the hell did I move here?" Prentiss, who's on the cover of our latest issue, http://ow.ly/10gAzV tells us.
