Memory Piece (2024)
Lisa Ko
"Remarkable . . . vividly captures the urgency of youth, and becomes a heartbreaking elegy for a communal, almost utopian approach to urban life."
One Woman Show (2023)
Christine Coulson
"A delight! This novel's formal audacity - a book told in fragments culled from a museum's walls - is an impressive feat of imagination. One Woman Show is a moving story of privilege, womanhood, and the sweep of the twentieth century told through a single American life. I loved this book."
Family Meal (2023)
Bryan Washington
"Family Meal is filled with love - for the sensual pleasure of life, the places that we call home, the beauty of the people around us. This novel will break your heart twice over, with sadness, sure, but more unexpectedly, with joy. It takes a generous writer to show us the world in this way, and Bryan Washington is one of our best."
