Sloane Crosley recommends
Nothing Special (2023)
Nicole Flattery
"I derive so much energy from Nicole Flattery's writing. Nothing Special casts such a stylish and transportive spell, perhaps it's better to dust off adjectives like 'marvelous' and 'fabulous.' I'll never again ride an escalator without thinking of this book."
Diary of a Void (2022)
Emi Yagi
"What I like about it is that it takes place in Tokyo, but you're really watching quite a closed world [within] Tokyo, a massive city. It doesn't feel narrow [or] solipsistic, but you just have her bouncing basically between work and home for a lot of the novel. And I like that sort of tight shot on the characters. I tried to do that with Cult Classic, too. To give you a cinematic comp, I would say Russian Doll does that very well."
Virtue (2021)
Hermione Hoby
"A work of confident elegance and eerie familiarity for anyone who has ever been young, ambitious and blinded by perception."
