Kate Christensen recommends
Goldenseal (2024)
Maria Hummel
"Goldenseal is a savagely beautiful novel about the dangers and damages of passionate lifelong female friendship, intertwined with a brilliantly wrought elegy for the twentieth century. Hummel is a powerful writer. This book is extraordinary."
Pete and Alice in Maine (2023)
Caitlin Shetterly
"In this taut, riveting novel, Shetterly has created a lush, raw world: a passionate and damaged marriage; a family coming apart and knitting back together during a pandemic; a starkly unwelcoming place that becomes home. In all its multi-layered emotional facets, this book cuts deep, moving and true to the end."
The Rise and Fall of Ava Arcana (2023)
Jennifer Banash
"This dark, sexy novel combines the rocker-chick moxie of Daisy Jones & the Six with the psychological-thriller plot twists of Social Creature. Banash's clear, lush prose makes The Rise and Fall of Ava Arcana a gripping read."
What Napoleon Could Not Do (2023)
DK Nnuro
"In his brilliant debut, DK Nnuro shows us what happens when we do--and don't--get our heart's desire. The characters in this novel are fascinating in their honesty, their hope, and their humor, and their story is unforgettable: involving, surprisingly, and very human."
Lungfish (2022)
Meghan Gilliss
"Lungfish is as suspenseful as a thriller, as finely wrought as a poem, and as heartbreaking as a love song. Meghan Gilliss is an extraordinary writer. I loved this book."
Jane of Hearts and Other Stories (2022)
Katharine Weber
"Weber's sly, elegant stories unfurl to reveal themselves from inside out, startlingly beautiful, sharp-edged, funny, and moving. This collection is sheer pleasure to read."
