THE LUCKY ONES
By Julianna Pachico

The protagonists of Pachico’s heady debut novel are daughters of Colombia’s one percent who meet at an elite international school as toddlers.

Available at National Book Store.

 

MEN WITHOUT WOMEN
By Haruki Murakami

Following his bestselling Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki, Murakami’s long-awaited return to fiction takes the form of a collection of short stories. In the vein of his past work, each of the seven stories here contains a tinge of melancholy and resonate with those who sometimes find themselves susceptible to loneliness. Available at National Book Store.

 

SWING TIME

A finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction, Swing Time details the lives of two ambitious heroines in London who drift apart when the harsh realities of life set in.
