Introductions by Michelle Orange and Lucas Mann

Leslie Jamison explores addiction in The Recovering, her new work of nonfiction. “Her essays—risky, brilliant, and full of heart—ricochet between what it is to be alive and to be a creature wondering what it is to be alive,” wrote Nick Flynn. “Jamison’s words, torqued to a perfect balance, shine brightly, allowing both fury and wonder to open inside us.”

Gregory Pardlo, who won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 2015, now publishes the memoir Air Traffic, an ode to his father, to fatherhood and to family ties. “A showcase for Pardlo’s ample and agile mind, his courageous social conscience, and his mighty voice,” wrote Tracy K. Smith
