Rating: 2/3. A lot of thought and planning surely went into Crossings, a surreal epic about the timelessness of love, memory, and the soul.
Rating: 2/3. It’s always exciting to find stories that play with popular existential theories. Suren G. Hakobyan’s debut novel, Void Fate, does exactly that to very satisfying effect.
Rating: 3/3. Another brilliant read for 2020! The debut novel of Emily X.R. Pan is a celebration of art and imagination, but also a vivid illustration of depression and grief.
