Notes from Crew Quarters: New Books
We asked the Passages North editorial staff what new authors and books they're excited about.
Jacob Hall, Associate Fiction Editor
I wasn't familiar with Lauren Groff until recently. I'm checking out Delicate Edible Birds now.
Sara Ryan, Associate Poetry Editor
Returning to Kingdom Animalia by Aracelis Girmay, reading (or trying to read) Zoologies by Alison Hawthorne Deming, and When I Grow Up I Want to Be a List of Further Possibilities by Chen Chen.
Taylor Favour, Intern
Honor by Elif Shafak! It's so good!
Robert Ball, Intern
Super excited to read Lost in September by Kathleen Winter. It's her second novel and her first is easily my favorite contemporary work.
Charlie Edwards, Intern
The Book of Dust Volume 1: La Belle Sauvage by Phillip Pullman.
Zoe Maki, Intern
Pretty much any story by Etgar Keret.
Alexander Clark, Associate Nonfiction Editor
Priest Daddy by Patricia Lockwood.
Tianli Kilpatrick, Associate Nonfiction Editor
Roxane Gay's Hunger and Hanif Willis-Abdurraqib's The Crown Ain't Worth Much.
