In their new novels, Juliet Grames (The Seven or Eight Lives of Stella Fortuna) and Melissa Rivero (The Affairs of the Falcóns) give us stories of cultural transition through a feminist lens. In Grames’s novel, two sisters emigrate to America on the cusp of World War II, confronting a hostile world and its expectations. Rivero’s Falcón family comes to New York from Peru in the 1990s and matriarch Ana Falcón discovers just how much she’s willing to do to make a new life for herself and her family.
