Julie Buntin recommends
The Gunners (2018)
Rebecca Kauffman
"I recommend you read every single thing Rebecca Kauffman writes start with this beautiful novel, and start now."
Baby of the Family (2019)
Maura Roosevelt
"I can't believe Maura Roosevelt's big-hearted, deliciously readable novel Baby of the Family is a debut. This is a wise and soaring book about family secrets and the price of privilege, by a writer with profound insight, immense talent, and a brilliant future."
Trust Exercise (2019)
Susan Choi
"I can't remember the last time I had such a visceral reaction to a book, or was so dazzled by a writer's inventiveness with structure. Susan Choi is a master and Trust Exercise should be on every human's reading list. A perfect knockout, with profound things to say about art-making, adolescence, and consent."
Devotion (2019)
Madeline Stevens
"A dangerous novel-sharp, glittering and sexy."
My Dark Vanessa (2020)
Kate Elizabeth Russell
"My Dark Vanessa destroyed me. This moving, ferocious story of an all-consuming relationship between a teenager and her teacher traces not just a stolen girlhood, but the aftershocks that haunt trauma survivors years into the future. Gripping, stunningly written, and important . . . I’ve been waiting for this book."
Hex (2020)
Rebecca Dinerstein Knight
"Hex is sexy, unhinged, revelatory, so smart it gives the reader whiplash. It works on you like the poisonous plants that wind through the story line, until you’re as obsessed and intoxicated as the vivid characters that make up this love hexagon gone fascinatingly and beautifully wrong. I can’t remember the last time I had so much fun reading a book or was so impressed by the wizardry of the language."
