Kate Christensen recommends
Catalina (2017)
Liska Jacobs
"Catalina's feminist fatale narrator, Elsa, has both the heartbroken cynicism of Daisy Buchanan and the inscrutable seductiveness of Carmen in The Big Sleep. Liska Jacobs writes crystal-clear, hypnotically sensual prose, and Catalina is California noir at its darkest and sharpest."
The Captives (2018)
Debra Jo Immergut
"The Captives is a powerful novel, complex, dark, and enthralling. The story is riveting, all the way to the thrillingly twisted ending. Immergut's brand of literary noir masterfully interweaves points of view, voices, and temporal shifts, with dialogue as sharp and clean as cut glass. Bravo!"
Leonora in the Morning Light (2021)
Michaela Carter
"Michaela Carter's brilliant new novel is a fully imagined portrait of the sexual and artistic coming of age of a Great Woman. Leonora in the Morning Light is breathtaking and bold, formidably well researched and entrancingly beautiful."
God of Mercy (2021)
Okezie Nwọka
"This beautiful book has magic in it, and grace, and power."
