The universally understood reference in the title of Edgar Cantero’s newest novel stands in juxtaposition to the gritty and realistic nature of the story within, where we see our heroes 10-years on, dealing with PTSD and disillusionment. I couldn't put this book down!

You will find this beautifully written historical novel quite different from other World War II fiction you may have read. Spanning the periods before, during and after the war, the women of the title - three widows of men who in different ways had resisted the Nazis - find themselves in a dilapidated castle, coming to terms with the very complicated moral and emotional choices they have been forced to make. Winner of the 2017 New England Book award for fiction.

Through exploring her family's archive of letters and other documents, Yamashita creates a powerful dialog between herself and her past, including her family's experience in the WWII Japanese internment camps, how they reacted, how they coped, and how they moved on when they got home. More than just a memoir, this book teaches by example a new kind of relationship you can have with your familial, national, and cultural story. This is an important book.

An exceptional sci-fi comics anthology about first contact, culture clash, and colonialism, from a small indie comics publisher, addressing issues of representation with uniquely fun anthologies. New Worlds is a standout, where new and established talents push the genre of science fiction to do what it does best: show us who we are and who we can aspire to be.

If you buy the Penguin classics in hardcover just for the pretty covers then you'll like this: It's the same illustrator/designer! Coralie Bickford-Smith's new book is wonderfully illustrated and I think both adults and children will enjoy. It's darkly humorous, but also thoughtful and insightful.
