On the heels of her Rumpus post on the lack of diversity in the New York Times Book Review Roxane Gay has started taking names. Literally. She’s compiling a public database of working writers of color.
New releases this week include The Wicked Girls by Alex Marwood, a limited edition of Stephen King’s illustrated poem The Dark Man and The Sound of Things Falling by Juan Gabriel Vásquez, which we covered as part of our Great Second-Half 2013 Book Preview. Now available in paperback is Alice Munro's Dear Life.
