You Never Get it Back, by Cara Blue Adams

Staff Pick

Adams's award-winning debut collection is a series of interconnected vignettes that paint a lush portrait of a young woman in her young adulthood. Kate Bishop is knowledgeable enough about the world, but still carefully treading the waters of love, friendship, and loss. As she navigates these different moments in her life, they seem to leave her with more questions than answers, but Adams's deft prose sheds light in the cracks and fissures of seemingly banal moments, elevating the beauty of the ordinary.

Staff Pick

When budding cartoonist Wylie Kogan reaches out to his hero for advice, he gets more than he bargained for. Set in conservative 1960s Los Angeles, what starts as a portfolio review turns into a fun and exciting look at an unconventional, whirlwind  relationship that goes beyond mere physicality. Told with humor and heart, Yes, Roya focuses the trust that must exist within the relationship among dominants and submissives, as well as positively represents kink, polyamory, and queerness.
