Sympathy

Sympathy

by Olivia Sudjic
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

An electrifying debut novel of obsessive love, family secrets, and the dangers of living our lives online
 
At twenty-three, Alice Hare leaves England for New York. She becomes fixated on Mizuko Himura, a Japanese writer living in New York, whose life story has strange parallels to her own and who she believes is her "Internet twin." What seems to Mizuko like a chance encounter with Alice is anything but-after all, in the age of connectivity, nothing is coincidence. Their subsequent relationship is doomed from the outset, exposing a tangle of lies and sexual encounters as three families acrossthe globe collide, and the most ancient of questions-where do we come from?-is answered just by searching online.
 
In its heady evocation of everything from Haruki Murakami to Patricia Highsmith to Edith Wharton, Sympathy is utterly original-a thrilling tale of obsession, doubling, blood ties, and our tormented efforts to connect in the digital age.

All Is Not Forgotten

by Wendy Walker
Publisher:

In the small, affluent town of Fairview, Connecticut, everything seems picture perfect.
 
Until one night when young Jenny Kramer is attacked at a local party. In the hours immediately after, she is given a controversial drug to medically erase her memory of the violent assault. But, in the weeks and months that follow, as she heals from her physical wounds, and with no factual recall of the attack, Jenny struggles with her raging emotional memory. Her father, Tom, becomes obsessed with his inability to find her attacker and seek justice while her mother, Charlotte, prefers to pretend this horrific event did not touch her perfect country club world.
 
As they seek help for their daughter, the fault lines within their marriage and their close-knit community emerge from the shadows where they have been hidden for years, and the relentless quest to find the monster who invaded their town - or perhaps lives among them - drive this psychological thriller to a shocking and unexpected conclusion.

The Revenant

The Revenant

A Novel of Revenge

by Michael Punke
Publisher: Picador

The year is 1823, and the trappers of the Rocky Mountain Fur Company live a brutal frontier life. Trapping beaver, they contend daily with the threat of Indian tribes turned warlike over the white men's encroachment on their land, and other prairie foes - like the unforgiving landscape and its creatures.

Hugh Glass is among the Company's finest men, an experienced frontiersman and an expert tracker. But when a scouting mission puts him face to face with a grizzly bear, he is viciously mauled and not expected to survive. The Company's captain dispatches two of his men to stay behind and tend to Glass before he dies, and to give him the respect of a proper burial. When the two men abandon him instead, taking his only means of protecting himself-including his precious gun and hatchet- with them, Glass is driven to survive by one desire: revenge.
 
With shocking grit and determination, Glass sets out crawling inch by inch across more than 3,000 miles of uncharted American frontier, negotiating predators both human and not, the threat of starvation, and the agony of his horrific wounds. In Michael Punke's hauntingly spare and gripping prose, The Revenant is a remarkable tale of obsession, the human will stretched to its limits, and the lengths that one man will go to for retribution.
