New novels to read in 2019

With plenty of forces focused on division over unity, it’s important to remain attentive to the lives we have not lived. Fiction can help enable those connections. Here are eight titles that will be released over the coming months. Their authors hail from seven different countries on five continents. Their creations are audacious, shocking, devoted, isolated, familiar, alien and all too human.
