Steve Almond recommends
Something Wild (2021)
Hanna Halperin
"Something Wild is a brave, harrowing novel, beautifully written and unflinching in its examination of spousal abuse, sexual exploitation, divorce, and legacies of trauma. It is also, miraculously, a tender-hearted examination of sibling love and betrayal, of the wounds we suffer and inflict on those we need the most, and the mercy required to endure them. Hanna Halperin possesses the courage of all great novelists: she is able to stare down the truth without judgment. I was spellbound while reading her remarkable debut, and haunted long afterwards."
A Tiny Upward Shove (2022)
Melissa Chadburn
"A writer who can make the language sing and bleed."
How to Be Eaten (2022)
Maria Adelmann
"Maria Adelmann's debut novel is jagged and daring and darkly funny. Her wit is an exquisite instrument, one she uses to shred the myths by which capitalism and patriarchy exploit and commodify the female quest for love and selfhood. If you've ever hate-watched a reality TV show, or struggled with the blithe misogyny of a fairytale, this is the book for you."
