Nina MacLaughlin’s Wake, Siren: Ovid Resung, the women of Ovid’s Metamorphoses claim their stories and challenge the power of myth. Jake Wolff’s first novel, The History of Living Forever, tells the story of a chemistry student who falls for his teacher and, at his death, uncovers a centuries-old quest for the elixir of life. Fernando A. Flores’s Tears of the Trufflepig is an absurdist take on life along the border in a parallel universe. Set on a luxury facility for surrogate mothers for the super rich, Joanne Ramos’s novel The Farm pushes to the extremes our thinking on motherhood, money, and merit.
