1/2 cocktail recipes, 1/2 feminist history, 1/2 puns... wait, did I do that math right? This book "will make you want to smash the patriarchy-and get smashed while you're doing it." One Ursula K. Le Gimlet for me, please. [Tanya]

NOTE: Tanya no longer works at King's Books. I think often of my diasporic body and seek work that deals with the same: questions of home, problems of language-and-or-lack-thereof, memory, longing, survival, salt. I have a professed interest in translation (both works in and theory of), and a penchant for words that begin with p. Partial to: declarations from those in the margins, short stories, speculative fiction + worlds a touch absurd. Will pick up anything blurbed by Kelly Link.
Bao Phi is best known as a poet, Thi Bui as a cartoonist: their talents together create this gentle, poignant, multilayered tale, gorgeously rendered. This simple refugee story is enlivened with confident lines and soft washes, skillfully told as only a poet could. [Tanya]
