The Fifth Woman – Nona Caspers

Caspers’s prose unifies form and content in a spectacular way as she writes the facts of grief, doing justice to both its devastation and transcendence, the sublime surreality it bestows on the world through the mere fact that one must continue to live in it.

Empty Set – Verónica Gerber Bicecci

How do you render negative space, and if you can accurately describe it, is it really negative?

Infinite Ground – Martin MacInnes

This is much more than a book with multiple endings (or even multiple worlds); this is an impressive exploration of porosity.
