"This immensely readable novel is fluent, passionate and emotionally honest. An explosive debut."—The Guardian

Elena Ferrante

The Beach at Night

Accompanied by the oneiric illustrations of Mara Cerri, The Beach at Night is a story for all of Ferrante’s many ardent fans.

Shelter in Place

An Interview with Alexander Maksik

“I have always been drawn to art because it is an utterly lawless world, limited only by a person’s courage and imagination. So what do I shy away from? Cowardice. I revile cowardice in art. I revile the idea that we should be writing benign and careful books." A. Maksik
