Presents Marlon James' "A Brief History of Seven Killings". The single greatest "breakthrough" writer from the Caribbean since V. S. Naipaul. As is now well-known, the title is doubly ironic: It spans three decades, and at 688 pages, is not brief at all. At the same time, Bob Marley's life was very brief indeed: While he… Read more

The Rape of Nanjing is one of the defining events of modern China. To make it the subject of a novel (beautifully called a "requiem") is to take on the ultimate challenge for a writer whose work melds poetic lyricism with Tolstoyan grand narrative.

His triumphant first novel: Suffused with genuine humor and a melancholy sense about life.

Presents Ha Jin's "The Crazed". His masterly novel. Ha Jin, who writes only in English, cemented his reputation with "Waiting", which was lavished with critical praise and literary awards. He has been compared to Dickens, Balzac, and Isaac Babel. "Like Babel, Ha Jin observes everything. Yet he tells the reader only, and precisely, as much as is needed to make his deceptively simple fiction resonate on many levels" (The New York Times) . Ha Jin came to the United States as an… Read more
