January 2024: Upcoming Book Releases
Fiction, fantasy, thriller, and romance lovers are very close to unclosing all-exciting stories with new book releases this week, January 2024. Here, I have sorted out some of the most anticipated releases in world literature.
The Storm We Made by Vanessa Chan
Fiction, Historical Fiction, War Novel; Publisher: S&S/Marysue Rucci Books; Publication Date: January 02, 2024
Vanessa Chan has introduced us with her first novel ‘The Storm We Made’ where Cecily Alcantara, a Malayan mother, is a central character with her ironic story of unlikely spying for Japanese forces during WWII. The plot of the historical fiction revolves around the fulsome misery of Cecily and her family. In 1945, Cecily Alcantara’s family fell into great danger when the Japanese Empire was approaching to occupy British-colonized Malaya. Abel, her eighteen-year-old son, disappeared, and they confined their youngest daughter in a basement to prevent her from working in the comfort stations. Jujube, her elder daughter, who works in a tea house, gets angrier about drunk Japanese soldiers.
Cecily Alcantara regrets her spying activities that brought a terrible time for her children, community, and country. She believes these consequences hail from her faults and her family will never know the truth of dreaming of an ‘Asia for Asians’ offered by a charismatic Japanese General Shigeru Fujiwara. Thus, ‘The Storm We Made’ by Vanessa Chan depicts the dazzling tale of the horrors of the Second World War and the repressive relationship between the colonial emperor and the colonized community. I believe this historical fiction will back you to the unavoidable consequences of World War II on humanity.

Hitchens’ essays cover a wide range of topics and maintain their significance beyond the original context. It will be an essential reading for anyone interested in essays and non-fictional writing.
