For fans of the Handmaid’s Tale and the Power, Jennie Melamed has written a stunning debut speculative tale of female empowerment. Eric Plamondon, born in Québec, weaves together a dazzling narrative of stories including those of Johnny Weissmuller, Al Capone and Fidel Castro, darting around in time and space; and Omar El-Akkad’s American War is dizzying in both form and content.
