New Fiction
Medusa’s Ankles: Selected Stories
(Alfred A. Knopf)
by A.S. Byatt
“The short story format suits Byatt beautifully. She favors adjective-spangled cascades of images, excavates the dictionary for rare specimens, and sends iambs and anapests cavorting across the paragraphs... Exquisite... Beautifully evocative.”

Girl Giant and the Monkey King
(Square Fish)
by Van Hoang
