Here are some new releases (photo 1) and books now available as paperbacks (photo 2) recently added to our English corner. We’re especially looking forward to reading ‘My Year Abroad’ by Chang-Rae Lee and ‘Rainbow Milk’ by Paul Mendez.
Chang-Rae Lee (a Pulitzer Prize finalist and winner of the Dayton Literary Peace Prize) returns with his new novel ‚My Year Abroad‘, which follows the college student Tiller and Chinese American entrepreneur Pong Lou on an eye-opening trip across Asia, exploring concepts of cultural immersion, alienation, and identity with both humour and suspense.
Set in Britain but switching between the 1950s and turn of the millennium, ‘Rainbow Milk’ by Paul Mendez tells the stories of Norman and Jesse as they navigate racial and sexual identities, fatherhood and religion across time and cultures. A highly acclaimed debut novel from 2020, now available as a paperback.
