January TBR Additions

This month’s additions to the TBR list consists mostly of titles to catch up on. It seems the second half of 2022 was filled with many more interesting books than the first half of the year. An opposite reaction, I feel, from 2021.

I’ve been reading McCracken’s short story collection, Here’s your Hat What’s Your Hurry and I’m quite enjoying it. When I noticed she has a new novel, I had to put it on the list.

From the Publisher: The Hero of This Book is a searing examination of grief and renewal, and of a deeply felt relationship between a child and her parents. What begins as a question of filial devotion ultimately becomes a lesson in what it means to write. At once comic and heartbreaking, with prose that delights at every turn, this is a novel of such piercing love and tenderness that we are reminded that art is what remains when all else falls away.

I’ve been a fan of Matthew Zapruder’s ability to talk about poetry as much as I’m a fan of his poetry. I’m looking forward to his selection for this collection.

From the Publisher: Chosen from print and online magazines, from the popular to the little-known, the selection is sure to capture the attention of both Best American Poetry loyalists and newcomers to the series.

It’s been a while since I’ve read a solid Science Fiction novel and this one, blending a historical setting to retell a classic of the genre caught my attention immediately.

From the Publisher: The Daughter of Doctor Moreau is both a dazzling historical novel and a daring science fiction journey.
