Marlowe Benn recommends
Dreamland (2019)
Nancy Bilyeau
"Bilyeau’s thrilling novel plunges deep into Dreamland’s maze of pleasure and menace."
Opium and Absinthe (2020)
Lydia Kang
"Opium and Absinthe is the richly seductive tale of a young Gilded Age heiress’s journey down a beguiling but dangerous path in search of her sister’s blood-draining killer. Chillingly timely in its portrait of opiates’ deadly allure, Kang’s story shimmers with betrayed innocence and the power of trusting one’s inner compass."
