Blake Butler recommends
South (2023)
Babak Lakghomi
"Disguised as a high concept page-turner akin to Enrique Vila-Matas and Paul Auster, Babak Lakghomi's slyly subversive and uncanny novel, South, is pure sublime. Packed full of complex silence, sex, deceit, erasure, captivity, dreamlife, memory, and yes, despair, it wastes no syllable while wading neck-deep into its own conspiracy, remembering just in time to come back up for air where others drown."
One's Company (2022)
Ashley Hutson
"Like some uncanny hybrid of Tom McCarthy, Ottessa Moshfegh, and Mulholland Drive, Ashley Hutson's high concept black comedy, One's Company, packs deranged laughs against deep trauma in a no-holds-barred debut. Surreal, ambitious, and page-turning, the painful memory performance of Bonnie Lincoln's wish to live forever in a sitcom might be more realistic than the realism we think we know."
Be Here to Love Me at the End of the World (2022)
Sasha Fletcher
"Shades of Garcia Marquez, Robert Coover, and Michel Gondry converge within the burning soul of Sasha Fletcher's emotion-bending meta-epic, Be Here to Love Me at the End of the World. Interweaving social fury and deep love, domestic realism and doomy dreamwork, this book is at once like a bomb shelter and a call-to-arms, for once not asking but demanding of humanity something more than mere apocalypse."
