Coming in January: The Shadow King!

Start 2020 off with a powerful novel about female strength: Maaza Mengiste's The Shadow King. Named one of The New York Times' 100 Notable Books of 2019, The Shadow King is set in Ethiopia around WWII as Mussolini’s army mobilizes for an invasion. Garnering praise from the likes of Salmon Rushdie, Marlon James, and Aminatta Forna, PW called it an "evocative, mesmerizing account of the role of women during wartime" in a starred review. Available from PGC on January 17th!
