March is upon us, and so our March NYLON Book Club pick has arrived, too.
This month, we'll be reading Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi, which was published just yesterday!
The up-and-coming author is a favorite of Nylon's eternal writer-crush Aimee Bender, and last weekend, after referencing both Kanye West and New York Magazine art critic Larry Saltz—two more eternal crushes—in its opening paragraph, the New York Times Book Review declared: “With Boy, Snow, Bird, a culmination of a young life spent culling dreamscapes, Oyeyemi's confidence is palpable—it's clear that this is the book she's been waiting for."
And let us tell you--we've been eagerly awaiting it, too! The novel is a smart and imaginative re-telling of the classic Snow White tale, complete with razor sharp dialogue and unforgettable imagery.
Pick up your copy today, and if you'd like a little more backstory on the novel and its author, check out our Q&A with Helen on the Shelf-Help page in the current issue!
You know the drill: Throughout the month, we'll be calling on you, our NYLON Book Club members, to contribute reviews, favorite lines, questions for the author, and more via the #NYLONbookclub hashtag on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, and Facebook. Let us know what you think!
We're also giving away copies of Boy, Snow, Bird, to our most enthusiastic readers, right here, right now! Enter for a chance to win below.
