Jonathan Dee recommends
thumb
Song of a Captive Bird (2018)
Jasmin Darznik
"Farrokhzad’s determination to live freely and authentically, and to express that determination in her art, proved unbearable to the fundamentalist state. Darznik brings her own poetic sensibility to bear on this tragic, but ultimately inspiring, act of creative remembrance."
thumb
The Little Clan (2018)
Iris Martin Cohen
"Iris Martin Cohen's The Little Clan nails 21st-century New York: the antic collision of old and new money, old and new art, old and new pretensions. Funny and sharp-eyed and just as fond as it is satiric."
thumb
Lost Empress (2018)
Sergio de la Pava
"De la Pava himself can seem like an avenging angel, at least for those with a certain view of what ails contemporary American literature."
thumb
American Pop (2019)
Snowden Wright
"Excellent Southern Gothic fun...a panoramic tour of the American Century."
