Equivalents book jacket

Maggie Doherty
THE EQUIVALENTS: A Story of Art, Female Friendship, and Liberation in the 1960s
Five brilliant women among the first fellowship recipients at the newly-founded Radcliffe Institute for Independent Study—poets Anne Sexton and Maxine Kumin, painter Barbara Swan, sculptor Marianna Pineda, and writer Tillie Olsen—called themselves “the Equivalents” and went on to shape the course of feminism in ways that are still felt today. “An elegant, novelistic history...this empathetic, wide-angled portrait will resonate with fans of the individual artists and readers of women’s history.” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) Maggie Doherty is a literary scholar and historian based at Harvard.

Helen Fremont
Escape Artist book cover

Helen Fremont 
This heart-wrenching memoir begins with the author discovering her father disinherited her in his will. The Escape Artist, written with extraordinary candor and wit, is the story of a family inextricably bound through secrets and loss, with the parents profoundly affected by surviving the Holocaust. “By book’s end, I found my own life had been both shaken and expanded by Fremont’s. Isn’t this why we read?” (Richard Russo) Her prior memoir, After Long Silence, was a national bestseller. Helen Fremont is a Wellesley graduate, writes fiction and non-fiction, and works as a public defender in Boston. (Author photo © Mikki Ansin)

Cactus League Jacket Cover

Emily Nemens
A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice, this debut novel is an explosive, character-driven odyssey through the world of baseball. Jason Goodyear is a star outfielder stationed in the hot Arizona desert for spring training. Handsome and famous, he is nonetheless coming apart at the seams. “There is more to this book than the best sports reporting: peeling back the curtain, examining the people behind the statistics, and understanding that sometimes the most crucial plays are the ones happening off the field.” (Chicago Review of Books) Emily Nemens is editor of The Paris Review. She lives in New York. (Author photo © James Emmerman)
