    For this third installment in the annual anthology, editor Aleksandar Hemon has organized its thirty-four stories not by country, but by theme (love, desire, family, thought, art, home, work, evil). In his introduction, Hemon informs readers that the intention is to place the stories “in the situation of dialogue and to show what we have always known: the infinite variation of human experience, which can never be spent or diminished to a tweet, is the true and only domain of literature. What you can find in this book is not only great, relevant fiction, but also – and perhaps, most importantly – a sense of kinship in the belief that human lives, thoughts, and feelings always matter.” Index by Author, Index by Country, Author Biographies, Translator Biographies. 459p.

    Nicole Krauss's international bestseller novel The History of Love (2005) won the William Saroyan International Prize for Writing and France's Prix du Meilleur Livre Etranger, and was short-listed for the Orange, Medicis, and Femina prizes. In this new novel, a reclusive American novelist has been writing for twenty-five years at the desk she inherited from a young Chilean poet who disappeared in Pinochet's Chile; one day a girl claiming to be the poet's daughter arrives to take the desk away, sending the writer's life for a loop. Across the ocean, in the lush suburbs of London, a man caring for his dying wife discovers, among her papers, a lock of hair that unravels a terrible secret. In Jerusalem, an antiques dealer slowly reassembles his father's study, plundered by the Nazis in Budapest in 1944. Connecting these stories is a desk of many drawers that exerts a power over those who possess it or have given it away. As the narrators of GREAT HOUSE make their confessions, the desk takes on more and more meaning, and comes finally to stand for all that has been taken from them, and all that binds them to what has disappeared. 289p.

    In this brilliant debut novel, Samson Greene, a young and popular professor at Columbia is found wandering in the Nevada desert. When his wife, Anna, comes to bring him home, she finds a man who remembers nothing, not even his own name. The removal of a small brain tumor saves his life, but his memories beyond the age of twelve are permanently lost. An emigrant in his own life, set free from everything and everyone who once defined him, Samson Greene believes he has nothing left to lose. When a charismatic scientist asks Samson to participate in a bold experiment, he agrees. What he gains is nothing short of the beautifully painful revelation of what it is to be a human being.

    Leo Gursky is just about surviving, tapping his radiator each evening to let his upstairs neighbor know he's still alive. But life wasn't always like this: sixty years ago, in the Polish village where he was born, Leo fell in love and wrote a book. And though Leo doesn't know it, that book survived, inspiring fabulous circumstances, even love. Fourteen-year-old Alma, named after a character in that very book, undertakes an adventure to find her namesake and save her family. With consummate, spellbinding skill, Nicole Krauss gradually draws together their stories.
