Megan Mayhew Bergman recommends
Stolen (2023)
Ann-Helén Laestadius
"Sami author Ann-Helen Laestadius has written a fresh, devastating, and insightful novel about Sami life and the struggle for justice in a rapidly changing world. A love for the imperiled landscape reverberates throughout this engaging read."
Wildcat (2022)
Amelia Morris
"Amelia Morris writes into reality-the beautiful and the ugly, the way we inevitably measure ourselves against one another. Vibrant and fast-moving, Wildcat is on its surface a compelling read, but it also has bite. The novel is dark and eviscerating on class and entitlement while Morris is funny and sharp on the page. Her movement into fiction is a true reward to readers."
Life Among the Terranauts (2021)
Caitlin Horrocks
"In her third book--and with her literary powers only heightened--Horrocks has crafted an accomplished, beautiful collection of stories with a streak of the surreal. Life Among the Terranauts is wise, worldly, and inventive, moving across both time and continents. Horrocks has proven herself a master of the story form."
