NewPages Book Stand – December 2020

The last Book Stand of the year is here! As usual, we’ve featured five titles, and you can find other great fiction, nonfiction, and poetry books at our website.

Featured nonfiction Fragments of a Mortal Mind by Donald Anderson shows us how the disparate elements of our lives collect to construct our deepest selves and help us to make sense of it all.

Mckenzie Cassidy’s Here Lies a Father follows fifteen-year-old Ian as he uncovers the truths of his late father’s life and secret families.

The poems in Polly Buckingham’s The River People move through both dream and natural landscapes exploring connection and loss, abundance and degradation, the personal and the political.

Brian Phillip Whalen explores the loss of relationships in Semiotic Love [Stories], reminding us that for better or for worse, we’re all a little rougher with the people we love the most.

In Women in the Waiting Room, Kirun Kapur “makes an imaginative whole from Hindu mythology, confessions from a hotline for sexual abuse, meditations on a friend’s mortal illness, and the poet’s private pain.”
