Christopher Bollen recommends
The Possessions (2017)
Sara Flannery Murphy
"This is a literary ghost story for a whole new generation."
Courting Mr. Lincoln (2019)
Louis Bayard
"Superb, witty, gorgeously written. For the length of this dazzling, subversive novel, I was plunged so deeply into the sitting rooms and muddy streets of mid-nineteenth-century Springfield, Illinois, that I too had fallen in love with and had my heart broken by the awkward, young lawyer from Kentucky. Courting Mr. Lincoln is an essential read: it makes the past a human place."
These Violent Delights (2020)
Micah Nemerever
"A gorgeous and wickedly smart novel. I was so seduced by the dazzling love story of these two vulnerable young men I became an unwitting accomplice in their swerve toward violence. Nemerever has created a rich, engrossing, and morally complex book filled with dark truths and dangerous delights."
