Daniel Alarcón recommends
Say Hello to My Little Friend (2024)
Jennine Capó Crucet
"Capó Crucet's new novel is a madcap, beautiful romp through a version of Miami I've been waiting to see in literature for years: a place of newness and impermanence, where the fluidity of language and culture and history is as central to its identity as the ocean and the tides. I loved this brilliant, hilarious novel, read it compulsively, and loved most of all its protagonist: Izzy, a young man hellbent on achieving the American dream of reinvention, and at the same time in danger of discovering more about himself and his roots than he ever hoped to know."
Mouth to Mouth (2022)
Antoine Wilson
"Antoine Wilson has written a stunner of a novel. Mouth to Mouth shook and thrilled me from the first page to the last."
Lost Children Archive (2019)
Valeria Luiselli
"Valeria Luiselli is a writer of formidable talent, destined to be an important voice in Latin American letters. Her vision and language are precise, and the power of her intellect is in evidence on every page."
