Looking for something new and different? Here are some recent recommendations from our partnership with Largehearted Boy.
In the Largehearted Word series, the WORD staff highlights several new books released this week.
"One of the sharpest, funniest voices on YouTube" ("Forbes"), comedian Grace Helbig offers an irreverent and illustrated guide to life for anyone faced with the challenge of growing up.
A hilarious and informative primer on the most urgent issues of our day, from the creators and co-hosts of "Citizen Radio," a 100% listener-supported show whose slogan is "independent radio that won't lead you to war."
"Rookiemag.com is a website created by and for young women to make the best of the beauty, pain and awkwardness of being a teenager. When it becomes tough to appreciate such things, we have good plain fun and visual pleasure. When you're sick of having to be happy all the time, we have lots of rants, too. Every school year, we compile the best from the site into a print yearbook.
Selected for the inaugural Fence Modern Prize in Prose by Rivka Galchen.
"Short-fiction genius Ottessa Moshfegh's first novel is a gorgeously sordid story of love and murder on the high seas and in reeky corners of mid-nineteenth-century New York and points North. "McGlue" is a wonderwork of virtuoso prose and truths that will make you squirm and concur."--Gary Lutz
