Aravind Adiga recommends
Disorientation (2022)
Elaine Hsieh Chou
"Disorientation is the funniest novel I've read all year . . . This uproarious tale of a young woman's quest to uncover the truth about the world's most famous Chinese American poet is packed full of sly truths about race, love, and life in general -- all of which you're going to miss, because you'll be laughing so hard."
Western Lane (2022)
Chetna Maroo
"Starting off as an intimate tone poem, this story of a squash-obsessed teenager expands into something with the amplitude, depth, and ringing power of a great symphony. In other words-WOW. Western Lane is glorious. You'll want to read it over and over again."
Dante's Indiana (2021)
Randy Boyagoda
"Randy Boyagoda's writing fills me with laughter, delight-and envy. With ambition and an unerring eye for detail, Dante's Indiana conjures a world that is savage, satirical, and unexpectedly tender."
