Laird Hunt‘s Zorrie: A Novel is set against a harsh, gorgeous, quintessentially American landscape, and spans Zorrie Underwood’s entire lifetime. It’s a life convulsed and transformed by the events of the 20th century and then, after finding love and community, a discovery that her trials have only begun. In Sabina Murray‘s The Human Zoo, Filipino American Christina “Ting” Klein travels from New York to Manila to escape her imminent divorce and start researching a book. In the year since her last visit, Procopio “Copo” Gumboc has swept the elections and became president – and Ting soon finds herself confronted by the horrifying realities of Gumboc’s power. And in Sloane Crosley‘s Cult Classic: A Novel, one night in New York City’s Chinatown a woman at a reunion dinner with former colleagues excuses herself to buy a pack of cigarettes. On her way back, she runs into a former boyfriend. And then another. And another. Coincidence? Nothing is quite what it seems in a city full of ghosts of heartbreaks past.
