Just an occasionally updated list
Liliana Colanzi, OUR DEAD WORLD: This is a small, intimate, and alarming collection of mostly magical realism stories from a very talented young Bolivian author who studied (studies?) at Cornell. The stories span the United States, Europe, and South America, and feature, variously, a young woman unsettled by a disembodied eye that follows her around, watching as she suffers the world’s abuses; a drug dealer’s girlfriend stuck in a hotel bar while a cannibal is on the loose; a photographer’s assistant suffering the awfulness of his boss and the strangeness of a gloriously in-fighting family…and more. Unsettling fiction at its best.

Moon Bo Young, PILLAR OF BOOKS: Hilarious, strange, an onrush of off-beat flash fictions (maybe some poems?) that look at the bothers and lovelies of existence with a very keen and disturbed viewpoint. From “Lips”: “I inspect the half pair of lips. I put them down. I can’t read the lips. We become lovers.” A little goes a long way here–the perfect kind of book to flip through/read sections at random to start your day, or to end your day, or to smuggle into meetings.
