Detail - "I read Stubborn Archivist in a ravenous gulp. It's stunning: so articulate about what it means to live between two languages and countries, tenderly unraveling the knots of unbelonging." --Olivia Laing, author of TheLonely City and Crudo For fans of Chemistry and Normal People A mesmerizing and witty debut novel about a young woman growing up between two disparate cultures, and the singular identity she finds along the way But where are you really from? When your mother considers another country home, it's hard to know where you belong. When the people you live among can't pronounce your name, it's hard to know exactly who you are. And when your body no longer feels like your own, it's hard to understand your place in the world. In Stubborn Archivist, a young British Brazilian woman from South London navigates growing up between two cultures and into a fuller understanding of her body, relying on signposts such as history, family conversation, and the eyes of the women who have shaped her--her mother, grandmother, and aunt. Our stubborn archivist takes us through first love and loss, losing and finding home, trauma and healing, and various awakenings of sexuality and identity. Shot through the novel are the narrator's trips to Brazil, sometimes alone, often with family, where she accesses a different side of herself--one, she begins to realize, that is as much of who she is as anything else. A hypnotic and bold debut, Stubborn Archivist is as singular as its narrator; a novel you won't soon forget.

Detail - "If The Devil Wears Prada and Broadcast News had a love child, it would be this hilarious satire of the Washington circus." --Arianna Huffington Be noisy, her father always told her. So Natalie Savage grew up heeding his advice and focused her ambition on her reporting career rather than her personal life. Now her efforts are paying off. She has been offered the title of White House correspondent for her network. The only thing is that the position is temporary--a test to see if she has what it takes. She knows she has the grit, the principles, the news sense to succeed...except her competition is a twenty-six-year-old popular frat boy who got his big break by eating raw animal parts on a reality show. Of course, he's winning. Natalie has to navigate ratings wars, workplace sexual harassment and an international political crisis in order to prove herself. But the closer she gets to achieving her dream, the more she wonders if it's worth all the compromise. Funny, smart and timely, this juicy debut about reporting while female tackles fake news, the #MeToo movement and the fraught dance between reporting the news and the White House. Natalie Savage joins the ranks of favorite fictional heroines as she figures out that having it all doesn't have to mean giving up everything she stands for.
