Two novels tell intertwining stories of the search for the past, and for ourselves. In Everything is Borrowed by Nathaniel Popkin, an acclaimed yet restless architect, Nicholas Moscowitz digs into the history of his newest commission and discovers Julius Moskowitz, a Jewish anarchist who lived in the same Philadelphia streets with the same surname over a hundred years prior. Their dual narratives intersect to create a masterful novel and a poignant meditation on cruelty and regret. Stephanie Feldman calls the novel “an evocative meditation on the bond between a man and the places that formed him.” Twenty years after two sisters are abducted in Andrea Kleine’s novel, Eden, the abductor is up for parole. In order to try and keep him jailed, one sister sets out to find the other in a suspenseful and moving journey of a lifetime. Publishers Weekly calls it “fascinating...a gripping portrait of the lingering effects of trauma.”
