New novels by Kristen Arnett (Mostly Dead Things), Sarah Rose Etter (Book of X), and Kevin Huizenga (The River at Night) give life to characters grappling with their own unique senses of isolation. Whether it’s heartbreak, insomnia, a dysfunctional family or the acute loneliness of a young woman whose body feels out of place, these stories examine that often loathed human condition: being alone. Why are we so afraid of ourselves? What do we have to learn in our own silence?
