Jenna Blum recommends
Bunyan and Henry (2024)
Mark Cecil
"A quintessentially American story that reflects us in all our generosity and grotesqueness, with unflinching honesty and hope."
The Stockwell Letters (2023)
Jacqueline Friedland
"The Stockwell Letters is a novel that would draw me from all the way across a crowded bookstore, because not only am I fascinated with the abolitionist era, it has so much resonance for our time. This is an immersive, human, important novel that everybody should read!"
The Glass Chateau (2023)
Stephen P Kiernan
"Stephen Kiernan has pulled off the nearly impossible, reminding us by wrapping a war story in a love story that although we hold the power for our own extinction, we also have the power to redeem, heal, and save. The most tender, terrifying, relevant book you'll read this year."
