Mr Kato Plays Family (2023)
Milena Michiko Flašar
"What an extraordinary novel this is! Who wouldn't want to read about someone invited to slip into other personas? But there is so much more here. The book is utterly original, beguiling, and truthful in the deepest sense of the word. By turns playful, humorous and poignant, this book invites underlining so that a reader may return again and again to certain lines or scenes. I absolutely loved it."

Miss Benson's Beetle (2020)
Rachel Joyce
"Whatever you may look for in a novel—adventure, fully realized characters, humor, poignancy, a chance to learn something new—is all here in Miss Benson’s Beetle. What’s also here is the particular grace and humanity that Rachel Joyce brings to her work. She reminds us that we all are broken in one way or another, but that we are capable—oftentimes in unexpected ways—of helping to make ourselves and others whole. This beautifully written novel is an absolute delight."

Saving Missy (2020)
The Love Story of Missy Carmichael

Beth Morrey
"Here is a love story of the most important kind: that of coming to love oneself through accepting and returning the love of others--be it people or dogs."
