Anthony Doerr recommends
thumb
The Plover (2014)
Brian Doyle
"Brian Doyle writes with Melville's humor, Whitman's ecstasy, and Faulkner's run-on sentences...Few contemporary novels shimmer like this one."
thumb
Of Sea and Cloud (2014)
Jon Keller
"...a gorgeously written exploration of faith and loyalty, love and dishonesty.... I will never forget these characters, these waters, or the harrowing dramas unfolded upon and beneath them."
thumb
Mischling (2016)
Affinity Konar
"One of the most harrowing, powerful, and imaginative books of the year."
thumb
The Changeling (2017)
Victor LaValle
"If the literary gods melted together Haruki Murakami and Ralph Ellison...the result would be Victor LaValle."

Mr. Dickens and His Carol (2017)
Samantha Silva
"Mr. Dickens and His Carol is a charming, comic, and ultimately poignant Christmas tale about the creation of the most famous Christmas tale ever written. It’s as foggy and haunted and redemptive as the original; it’s all heart, and I read it in a couple of ebullient, Christmassy gulps."
