Chloe Benjamin recommends
Wine People (2023)
Michelle Wildgen
"Wine People follows wine professionals Wren and Thessaly as they compete to become the heirs of a retiring New York City importer-but it's just as much about what happens after that. In sharp, sensory prose, Wildgen takes us from Madison, Wisconsin and Sonoma, California to Italy, France, and beyond. In her hands, wine is many things at once: a sometimes-destroyer of relationships, yes, but also an ancient art that bottles time and place. Smart and very funny, satirical but deeply felt, Wine People is an ode to the complexity of working friendships-as well as a shrewd, clear-eyed love letter to wine and the people who make, import, and drink it."
Forbidden City (2022)
Vanessa Hua
"Vanessa Hua's captivating second novel is an act of resistance and reclamation. Forbidden City explores questions of power, ambition, and visibility through a lens that is both clear-eyed and compassionate."
Memphis (2022)
Tara M Stringfellow
"In luminous, lyrical prose, Tara Stringfellow sings the song of the North women - and the North men - with wisdom, humor, and deep humanity. Memphis is an American epic, a tribute to life in all of its sorrow and joyful resilience."
