Stay True, by Hua Hsu

Staff Pick

The New Yorker writer's coming-of-age memoir is a time capsule of his '90s college experience that tracks his growth from the swell of cool to more considered questions of what really matters--which Hsu decides is not the things we buy or whether we liked Nirvana before or after they were popular, but the people we meet and how these relationships can make all other things seem inconsequential. Ultimately this narrative is the perfect homage to lives not lived and ground untrodden--but also to the art of remembering and the honoring of memory itself.

Thanks to Seven Stories Press, English-speaking readers can jump right into the impressive oeuvre of the 2022 Nobel literature prize-winner, Annie Ernaux. In her latest work,Getting Lost, the French writer best known for her autobiographical novels gives us instead the diary she kept during the period that inspired her 2003 fiction, A Simple Passion; both books describe her affair with a younger married man, and her journal also gives us a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the writer's life--the source for the desire and longing Ernaux's works so powerfully evoke.
