Staff Pick

Think you've had your fill of dystopian tales of the future? Believe me, you haven't, because you haven't read Maggie Shen King’s new novel An Excess Male.  Set in a China a few decades hence, forty million excess men, a direct result of China’s misogynistic one child policy, tax the country’s resources and culture. Marriage has become a rigid system of state control and familial advancement.  The story follows two families as they try to survive this system while keeping their secrets hidden. This is a tremendous tale of love and identity and King is a writer to keep your eye on.
