Kelly Barnhill recommends
Liberty's Daughter (2023)
Naomi Kritzer
"Be astonished. I love Kritizer's work, and I always will."
Osmo Unknown and the Eightpenny Woods (2022)
Catherynne M Valente
"Valente takes us on a wild journey through the absurd, the mundane, the outlandish, the silly, and the strange, often turning us on our heads. I loved every speck of it."
Hollow Chest (2021)
Brita Sandstrom
"I read this book breathlessly, ardently, my heart thumping in my chest. Brita Sandstrom has woven a story stitched through with hope and terror and longing. At its center is the utter audacity of love - how we hang on even when we are broken, and how we must never let go. A lovely, moving debut."
