Jonathan Ames recommends

Bad Monkeys (2007)
Matt Ruff
"A science fiction Catcher in the Rye... Highly entertaining. It moves fast and keeps surprising you."
thumb
Buffalo Lockjaw (2009)
Greg Ames
"In Buffalo Lockjaw, love of one's parents and love of one's hometown mix powerfully with the mad undertow of loss that seems as inevitable in life as gravity."

Alice Fantastic (2009)
Maggie Estep
"Maggie Estep is the bastard daughter of Raymond Chandler and Anais Nin. Her prose is hard-boiled and sexy; she turns a good phrase and shows some leg."

Rovers (2021)
Richard Lange
"Lange has done it again! Another tour de force! Another gripping page-turner! Shifting points-of-view, beautiful language, drama, action, fantasy, pathos--Rovers has it all! And it makes me feel greedy like a vampire (or a rover): I want and need another Richard Lange book right away! Well, I have to be patient and rational: I have his other books to reread and this one, too, which is an utter triumph and delight."
