To Paradise
Hanya Yanagihara 

HB €26,99 / PB €19,99
A bold and ambitious novel from the author of A Little Life spanning three centuries and three different versions of the American experiment, about lovers, family, loss and the elusive promise of utopia.
The first story takes place in 1893. Protagonist David Bingham, offspring of a wealthy banking family, lives in New York. He is expected to enter an arranged marriage with a respected man. However, David falls in love with a penniless musician.
In the second part we travel to 1993. A descendant of the last King of Hawaii resides in New York at the height of the AIDS crisis. Meanwhile, his father is dying in Hawaii.
The third part takes up almost half of the novel and takes place mainly in the year 2093, in a dystopian future determined by pandemics and climate change.
Three stories which seem to have little in common, connected by themes such as racism, sexuality, loneliness, migration, complex family relationships, a yearning to be loved, and illnesses. Dazzling, puzzling it might well be the first book of 2022 you immediately want to re-read.

51 year old twins Jeanie and Julius still live with their mother in an old cottage in the country. They’re poor and removed from society but when their mom suddenly dies they must learn to adapt and fend for themselves. They fight to survive as their mother’s secrets unfold.

Call Us What We Carry
Amanda Gorman

HB €19,99

Fabric –
Victoria Finlay

From our earliest ancestors to babies born today, fabric is a necessary part of our everyday lives, but it’s also an opportunity for creativity, symbolism, culture and connection.
