“Polk’s stellar debut… blends taut mystery, exciting political intrigue, and inventive fantasy… Polk is a writer to watch.” –Publishers Weekly Starred Review
Every so often, a book comes along that feels like a milestone, with revolution nestled beneath every sentence, every word. Oji-Cree/nehiyaw two-spirit/Indigiqueer writer Joshua Whitehead’s Jonny Appleseed is one of those books … With its fluid structure and timelines, Jonny Appleseed creates a dream-like reading experience — and with a narrator as wise, funny and loveable as Jonny, it’s the sort of dream you don’t want to wake up from. –The Globe and Mail
” In this refreshing, subversive, and darkly humorous debut novel, poet and journalist Walscholts slowly reveals the nuances of her superpower-filled world, keeping readers guessing. Hench reads like a comic without the illustrations and is packed with subplots and rapid-fire wit. With a diverse and inclusive cast of characters, Walschots’ original tale performs a brilliant and exciting variation on the superhero trope and is not to be missed.” (Booklist (starred review))
Ekwuyasi’s magical debut delves into the reverberating effects of a Nigerian mother’s choices on her twin daughters’ lives. The stories of Kambirinachi and her daughters, Taiye and Kehinde, unfold in lyrical, emotionally affecting parallel narratives … Written in sizzling prose, Ekwuyasi’s assured, inspired debut will impress fans of Akwaeke Emezi. –Publishers Weekly (STARRED REVIEW)
“[An] elegiac book, which smoothly incorporates historical and travel threads . . . A beautiful and personal view of an island―and an author―shaped by environment and history.”
