Sarah Shun-lien Bynum recommends
Silver Lake (2009)
"Silver Lake is compulsively readable, a novel that combines all the suspense of a psychological thriller with beautifully observed details of contemporary domestic life in Los Angeles. This is a haunting book full of both beauty and dread."
The Sweet Relief of Missing Children (2011)
"A magnificent debut filled with characters so vivid, strange, and richly imagined, you emerge feeling changed."
