Sarong Party Girls, by Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan: Emma! SET IN MODERN-DAY SINGAPORE. The publisher copy describes the heroine as a "bombastic yet tenderly vulnerable gold-digger" and says that it deals with the "gender politics and class tensions" under all of the glitter and IT'S WRITTEN IN SINGLISH. I WANT.

Black Apple, by Joan Crate: Historical coming-of-age story about a Blackfoot girl in Canada who is taken from her family and grows up in a government-run residential school run by the Sisters of Brotherly Love, an order of nuns devoted to "saving" indigenous children from Hell.

Occupy Me, by Tricia Sullivan: This one sounds entirely bananas, and in an entirely good way. A woman with wings—but the wings exist in a different dimension—works to track down a killer. But the killer is hiding in the body of an innocent man. Also, there's a briefcase that might be a portal to Hell. So... what? But also: YES.

The Expatriates, by Janice Y.K. Lee: Three American women living in Hong Kong—a recent college graduate, a woman who is desperate to have the child she believes will save her marriage, and a mother of three who is dealing with Big Grief and Hard Questions. The New York Times Book Review called it "Henry James in Asia" and I'm here for that.
