Susan Choi recommends
The Fetishist (2024)
Katherine Min
"The Fetishist is so reverent and so unruly, so delicate and so explosive, such a merge of chamber music with the mosh pit, so devastatingly sad and devastatingly funny and alive and generous with its abundance of life! I mourn Katherine Min, and am grateful this fiery novel of hers insisted its way out of Katherine's laptop and into the world. Hats off to Kayla Min Andrews for clearing the path."
Gone to the Wolves (2023)
John Wray
"Gone to the Wolves delivers the gorgeous head rush of an underground metal show, in the company of darkly charismatic people who may or may not be murderers, at no actual risk to life and limb. It's everything you've ever wanted from moshing without having to get off your sofa. John Wray writes too damn well!"
All This Could Be Different (2022)
Sarah Thankam Mathews
"Some books are merely luminous - this one is iridescent: with joy and pain, isolation and communion, solemnity and irreverent humor. Even the title has twin meanings. 'All this could be different' is a sorrowing observation of our contemporary precarity, but 'All this could be different' is equally - and ultimately - a declaration, an electrifying act of resistance."
