READ THAT, HEAR THIS: John Legend's sizzling new love anthem + Be transported by a superb story collection set in China

EASTERN PROMISES: Set against a fractured society, the nuanced tales that populate Yiyun Li's magnificent 2010 collection Gold Boy, Emerald Girl find power in moments of private revolt. While Li, a former New Yorker "20 Under 40" writer, expertly conjures a bewildering new-economy China, it's her eloquent understanding of people struggling to help one another "make a world that would accommodate their loneliness" that truly feels universal. 

HOT NEW TUNE: John Legend's ear for lush instrumentation and feel-good melodies has become keener over time, allowing him to deliver tracks that eloquently and memorably speak to matters of the heart. You feel that same earnest pull while listening to his new song "Made To Love," a handclapping midtempo joint about finding and holding on to that special (almost divine) connection. The tune will appear on his forthcoming disc, Love in the Future, due out later this year.
