Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata

A darkly humorous, compulsively readable exploration of normativity through the eyes of a content but maladjusted young woman who, despite societal pressures, is simply not wired to conform. Perfect for helping anyone who has ever felt they're not living "the right way" become convinced otherwise. - Ksenia

Mars: Stories by Asja Bakic

Haunting, visceral, often funny and always powerful, these surreal, fabulist stories are nothing short of brilliant. Bakic, an emerging feminist speculative writer from the Balkans, is simply extraordinary, a talent not to be missed. - Ksenia

Deaf Republic by Ilya Kaminsky

A poetic parable of an occupied town which refuses to hear soldiers, Deaf Republic is the most unique and profound anti-war work I’ve ever read. Kaminsky, himself a hard-of-hearing immigrant from Ukraine, re-envisions disability as a powerful act of defiance and silence as “the invention of the hearing.” - Ksenia

To Be a Machine by Mark O'Connell

A witty and highly fascinating - sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, occasionally disturbing - gonzo-journalistic tour into the world of death-renouncing transhumanists, many of whom are bankrolled by the mysterious Silicon Valley billionaires and by the military-industrial complex. Loved it! - Ksenia

Are Prisons Obsolete? by Angela Davis

A short book that posits and answers an immense question. Angela Davis outlines the history of incarceration as the primary form of punishment and asks us to imagine a world interested in rehabilitation more than retribution and in healing rather than perpetuating the cycle of oppression. An absolute must-read from a legend. - Ksenia

How to Suppress Women's Writing by Joanna Russ

First published in 1983, legendary feminist scholar and science fiction writer Joanna Russ’s rigorous review of women writers’ diminished contributions and deliberately neglected works is an absolute must-read that is, maddeningly, still relevant today. - Ksenia
