Senior Contributing Editor

Liberty Hardy is an unrepentant velocireader, writer, bitey mad lady, and tattoo canvas. Turn-ons include books, books and books. Her favorite exclamation is “Holy cats!” Liberty reads more than should be legal, sleeps very little, frequently writes on her belly with Sharpie markers, and when she dies, she’s leaving her body to library science. Until then, she lives with her three cats, Millay, Farrokh, and Zevon, in Maine. She is also right behind you. Just kidding! She’s too busy reading. Twitter: @MissLiberty

Rock Paper Scissors by Naja Marie AidtRock, Paper, Scissors by Naja Marie Aidt

Aidt, a well-known Danish poet, makes her novel debut with an intense, gritty crime drama. Thomas, a stationary store owner, discovers a dark secret in a toaster (like you do) about his criminal father after his father’s death. What Thomas learns will send him spiraling down a path of violence and destruction. If dark, disturbing, and amazingly well-written books are your thing, this is one you won’t want to miss! It’s one of the year’s best.
