Emperor of Ocean Park Emperor of Ocean Park

When Judge Oliver Garland dies, he leaves clues for his son that will unearth the entire truth about the Judge's life and death. Risking all for his father's legacy, Misha finds himself at the center of a dangerous storm of political interests.

Lilli Lilli
Lili, Annie Wang's debut as an English-language novelist, tells two stories of struggle and growth: that of a woman living through the final years of Cultural Revolution China, and through her story, that of China's movement towards modernity. In this issue of Bold Type Annie Wang discusses writing in English and how this challenge effected her protagonist and the story.
The Poems The Egg Code
Mike Heppner's debut novel takes on the Internet and the Way We Live Now as fiction has never tried to do before. It's wildly ambitious, audacious even -- and audaciously long (482 pages) -- but brilliantly so, and hugely entertaining. In this issue of Bold Type, read a short story that displays the wit and talent that fuel The Egg Code, as well as an excerpt from the novel.
Man Walks into A Room Man Walks into A Room, Nicole Krauss
