In This Issue

We review two terrific books in translation this week: The Postcard, Anne Berest's "brilliant work of autofiction," prompted by the mysterious receipt of a postcard containing the names of four ancestors killed at Auschwitz, translated from the French by Tina Kover; and Fabio Morábito's "intricately clever, superbly executed 15-story collection" Mothers and Dogs, translated from the Spanish by Curtis Bauer. Plus Warrior Girl Unearthed, Angeline Boulley's Ojibwe-centered YA thriller, a "propulsive and empowered" companion to her Firekeeper's Daughter, and so many more!

Elsewhere in the book world, in response to a wave of book bannings, PEN America, Penguin Random House, authors, and parents have filed a suit against a Florida school district. Read about it here.
