Open Throat, by Henry Hoke

Staff Pick

What does the world look like to a lion? In this startling, innovative novel, Hoke invites readers to find out. Told from the perspective of a mountain lion loping beneath the Hollywood sign, the story follows the big cat as he observes and ponders the humans around him. From ruminations on people as food--“I’ve never eaten a person but today I might"--to a range of emotions that seem too complex for the language that conveys them, the lion opens a set of wondrous possibilities and questions about the world we live in. Dreamy, sensuous, tragic, and aching with want, Open Throat is unlike anything I have read before.

Do Tell, by Lyndsay Lynch

Staff Pick

Lynch’s debut novel puts readers in the thick of Old Hollywood glitz and glamor, where nothing is quite as polished as the silver screen makes it out to be. The story centers on Edie O’Dare, an actress-turned-gossip-columnist who revels in reporting the salacious details of her former costars’ lives. Through Edie’s eyes, we’re privy to lavish parties, beautiful gowns, and the ways secrets wield power in Tinseltown. While set decades in the past, this fiction has all the immediacy of today.
