25 Featured Books by Authors of Color at BEA: MAYUMI AND THE SEA OF HAPPINESS
Date: Jun 3 2015
Another of our best of 2014 picks that’s recently out in paperback, Everything I Never Told You, brought author Celeste Ng in for a signing. A huge success that ended up being named Amazon’s Best Book of the Year, there’s no sign of things slowing down for this family drama-slash-mystery that looks at a mixed-race family in 1970s suburban Ohio.
If you worry that you have too many books in your life and not enough adventure, you may want to pick up the new release from Europa Editions, Mayumi and the Sea of Happiness by Jennifer Tseng. The book follows a middle-aged librarian who’s pulled out of her mundane life and family when she becomes obsessed with a teenage boy and befriends his mother. Billed as a book that’s both erotic and meditative, it’s one I really regret not getting into my suitcase.
