Hear ye, hear ye! The third episode of Under the Radar, Over the Moon has arrived! Check out our new video for the wacky antics of your favorite LLF team and, of course, great new books! This month we talk about:
Night of the Animals by Bill Broun: “Night of The Animals is the most beautiful, strange new novel I have read in years, and its obese, mentally ill, elderly protagonist is among the most engaging of heroes. The existence of this book in the present moment is a wonderment.” — Mary Gaitskill. Click here for the egalley.
The Maximum Security Book Club by Mikita Brottman: “Take nine convicted felons confined for the long haul at a maximum security men’s prison. Add a well-meaning literary scholar armed only with cheap reprints of challenging books by writers from Conrad to Kafka. The resulting dynamic is the subject of Mikita Brottman’s fascinating and unvarnished book about criminals as rough-hewn literary critics. I tore through The Maximum Security Book Club." — Wally Lamb, New York Times bestselling author of We Are Water. Click here to download an egalley!
Brighton by Michael Harvey: “Harvey has taken the elements of a classic crime novel and heightened them with race and class tensions, as well as the story of a remarkable friendship and an unforgettable family drama. The result is a novel that crackles with energy and makes you hold on until the final page.” — Ivy Pochoda, author of Visitation Street. Get started reading the egalley here.
