Thelma Adams recommends
Fathermucker (2011)
Greg Olear
"Funny, wise, sexy... this claustrophobic vision of contemporary parenting hits home."
Tante Eva (2021)
Paula Bomer
"I inhaled this novel. Astute. Empathetic. Unsparing. Brilliant. Bomer pushes the emotional envelope—and then shoves harder."
Neglect (2021)
Kim Wozencraft
"An ambitious, prescient, wise page-turner, Neglect turns on an educated, underemployed Upstate New York mother who crashes and burns through the social safety net. Out of financial hardship, she enlists in the Army Reserve only to be deployed to Afghanistan in 2015. Traumatized by multiple wartime experiences, she returns home with PTSD, turns to the bottle and becomes entangled with the social service bureaucracy that separates her from the very thing in the world she loves most--her twins. The chilling and empathetic novel about America's neglect of the working middle class is an indictment of the Kafkaesque institutions that, through red tape and apathy, have neglected rural America's dispossessed."
