Louis Bayard recommends
thumb
The Secret of the Nightingale Palace (2013)
Dana Sachs
"Sachs is an expansive and generous writer who gives us, at all times, the pulse of life being lived. She's the real deal."
thumb
Death of a Rainmaker (2018)
Laurie Loewenstein
"Laurie Loewenstein's vivid Death of a Rainmaker is at once an engrossing yarn, an elegant inquiry into human desperation, and a portrait of Depression-era America so searingly authentic that the topsoil practically blows off each page."
thumb
The Deep (2020)
Alma Katsu
"Blending choice elements of mystery and horror into an impeccably recreated history, Alma Katsu has created a rich, haunting, irresistible novel that succeeds in rewriting the past while making it feel more ominously present than ever."
thumb
Scavenger (2020)
Christopher Chambers
"Scavenger is as hard and unflinching as noir gets?an immersive portrait of life on the streets in Trump’s America. Yet, in the person of Dickie Cornish, Chambers has delivered a voice of idiomatic, hard-won radiance?and a truth-seeker equal to all the lies and all that lies ahead."
