CRISTINA HENRÍQUEZ’S 2014 New York Times Notable Book The Book of Unknown Americans is, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, “a remarkable novel that every American should read.” Set amongst a diverse immigrant community, the Washington Post praises it as “a deeply stirring story … with a simple, unadorned prose that rises to the level of poetry …. The Book of Unknown Americans leaves you in thrall to its vivid characters.” Henríquez’s other two books, both published before she was 30, include The World In Half and Come Together, Fall Apart:A Novella and Stories, which was a New York Times Editors’ Choice selection.

MARLON JAMES is, according to Russell Banks, “not just among the best of … [the] crowd of brilliant young Americo-Caribbean writers coming to the table these days, he’s among the best of all the young writers, period.” His latest novel A Brief History of Seven Killings was a 2014 New York Times Notable Book and a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award. Centered on the attempted assassination of Bob Marley in 1976, Newsweek calls it “a sweeping novel that touches on family, friendship, celebrity, art, sexuality, ghetto politics, geopolitics, drug trade, gender, race and more.” His other novels include John Crow’s Devil and The Book of Night Women, winner of the Dayton Literary Peace Prize and a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award.
