    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 β€œin 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.

    Jules Epstein is undergoing a metamorphosis. In the wake of his parents' deaths, a divorce, and retirement from his law firm, he's felt an irresistible need to give away his possessions. With the last of his wealth he travels to Israel, with a nebulous plan to do something to honor his parents. In Tel Aviv, he is sidetracked by a charismatic American rabbi who is planning a reunion for the descendants of King David and insists that Epstein join. He also meets the rabbi's beautiful daughter who convinces Epstein to become involved in her own project. On her own pilgrimage, a well-known young novelist arrives at the Tel Aviv Hilton, where she has stayed every year since birth. She's left her family for this trip, hoping that the hotel can cure her writer's block and unlock a dimension of reality that has been closed off to her. But when she meets a retired literature professor who proposes a project she can't refuse, she's drawn into a mystery that will profoundly change her.Bursting with life and humor, Forest Dark is a mesmerizing novel of transformation and self-realization--of looking beyond all that is visible toward the infinite.

    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.

    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.
