The Somali Camel Boy by Nur Abdi (fiction): Tragic, yet hilarious at times, as the camel boy negotiates the ways of his new life, this novel provides a rare insight into the complexities and conflicts of our world.
Waiting for the Rain by Lamees Al Ethari (nonfiction): In this memoir, Lamees traces her transition from an idyllic childhood in a large extended Iraqi family to the relative stability of an exilic family life in Canada.
Polychromasia by Mohineet Kaur Boparai (poetry): It takes on love, through confessional poems, the biosphere through the idea of geographical space over human time, patriarchy, class, and caste as it affects people, and the practice and appreciation of art.
Salt in My Life by Lien Chao (poetry): A sense of poetic and textual fluidity permeates this collection—embracing natural sounds such as heartbeats, electronic beeps, explosive thunderstorms, splashing raindrops, audible stillness, and eternal silence, as well as musical sounds and songs.
Paper Lions by Sohan S Koonar (fiction): Poignant, tragic, and at the same time exhilarating, this novel brings historical India to itself in the lives of its characters. Through their struggles India comes of age, as they do.
