Beneath the Lion's Gaze (2010)
Maaza Mengiste
"An important novel, rich in compassion for its anguished characters."
thumb
Black Mamba Boy (2010)
Nadifa Mohamed
"Ambitious... A phenominal fast-forward story... The novel takes on a Job-like tenor."
thumb
Disappearing Earth (2019)
Julia Phillips
"Disappearing Earth is a rare achievement: haunting and complex; intense yet subtle; sophisticated yet unputdownable; moving yet never sentimental; foreign yet somehow familiar. And it snaps shut at the end with dark poise. Julia Phillips possesses a unique talent, and I can’t wait for her next book."

The Cave Dwellers (2021)
Christina McDowell
"Christina McDowell has written a delicious, cunningly plotted page-turner about my former home, Washington, D.C. She nails all kinds of insider nostrums, lies, handbags, tacky earrings, sexual predation, private clubs, teenage nihilism and most revealingly, racism, as only the elite can practice it at its most virulent. She’s a huge talent with a huge heart."
