Ron Carlson recommends
Away (2007)
Amy Bloom
"This beautiful, effulgent book sped me forward word by word, out of the room I was in and into Amy Bloom's world. This is a wonderful novel, a cosmos that transcends its time period and grabs us without compromise. Lillian's astonishing journey, driven by a mother's love, will be with me for a long, long time."
The Gateway (2007)
T M McNally
"McNally writes from the inside out. These dramatic contemplations on the radical ways we connect in families show his remarkable vision. In prose at once fierce and elegiac, these powerful stories compose a careful and rueful celebration of our times."
This Is Not Your City (2011)
Caitlin Horrocks
"Caitlin Horrocks is a stunning writer and these stories mark a brilliant debut."
