Amy Bloom recommends
If I Loved You, I Would Tell You This (2010)
Robin Black
"Her people are alive on these pages in all their glory - heartache and joy, infidelity and loyalty - and stay with us."
Paradise and Elsewhere (2014)
Kathy Page
"Moody, shape-shifting, provocative..."
Painted Horses (2014)
Malcolm Brooks
"This novel has the hard thrill of the West, when it was still a new world, the tenderness of first love and the pain of knowledge. A gripping, compulsively readable page-turner."
Gypsy Moth Summer (2017)
Julia Fierro
"This novel shakes and stirs family saga and summer romance upside down. The irresistible story-telling brings to life each character and Fierro doesn't just observe, she knows...Like all great novelists, she gives us the world."
We Were Strangers Once (2017)
Betsy Carter
"Betsy Carter's warm and beautiful prose brings us love, tragedy, mystery and hope in a moving celebration of America and the people who have come to it."
An American Marriage (2018)
Tayari Jones
"Tayari Jones is a great storyteller. An American Marriage holds the reader from first page to last, with her compassionate observation, her clear-eyed insight and her beautifully written and complex characters. Jones understands love and loss and writes with passion and precision about the forces that move us all from one to another."
