Angie Cruz recommends
Broughtupsy (2024)
Christina Cooke
"I am so excited for Christina Cooke's novel, Broughtupsy; willful women caught in fraught family drama and torn between countries. Cooke's prose is vivid, propulsive, and visceral."
Blackouts (2023)
Justin Torres
"Blackouts is unequivocally brilliant, bold, and structurally inventive. Like its absorbing narrator, who tells stories to keep his friend alive, Justin Torres has written a shamelessly vital novel that reminds us all not to give up on ourselves, on one another, or on our stories."
Family Lore (2023)
Elizabeth Acevedo
"Flor is throwing herself a wake and reminding us that 'even a long life is too short.' So while we are here 'let's eat, and dance, and be alive.' Acevedo has written unforgettable characters who breathe new life to how we grieve, age, take care of each other. Family Lore is a big-hearted novel, a wonderful debut!"
