Bonnie Jo Campbell recommends
The Weight of Him (2017)
Ethel Rohan
"How can a story about death be so life affirming? Ethel Rohan's compassionate debut novel is sad, heartbreaking even, but also uplifting, a celebration of the determination to keep on trying."
The Wildlands (2018)
Abby Geni
"Every scene of this cleverly plotted novel is drawn with complex prose, rich detail, and an authorial voice that wisely observes the human animal. Abby Geni is my new favorite writer."
Life Among the Terranauts (2021)
Caitlin Horrocks
"These stories--inventive, outrageous, exquisite--are my kind of fun. How are we supposed to live in this world? Life Among the Terranauts will help show us the way. I'm in love with the brilliant stories in this book."
Tin Camp Road (2021)
Ellen Airgood
"The characters in Tin Camp Road are so vulnerable it hurts. So much is at stake for Laurel, a young single mother struggling to make ends meet, that this novel reads with the emotional momentum of a thriller. Caring for her precocious daughter is further complicated when the path out of poverty presents new and terrible compromises. This achingly beautiful novel considers the pursuit of happiness in all its complexity."
