Jonathan Dee recommends
Last Acts (2024)
Alexander Sammartino
"A sad, hilarious father-son redemption story that touches every American third rail: guns, drugs, religion . . . Sammartino is heir to the 20th century American masters: DeLillo, Pynchon, McCarthy, Wallace. He's as smart and as funny and as electric a stylist and as spot-on about the dark societal carnival we're all doing our best to survive."
House of Cotton (2023)
Monica Brashears
"Mystical, carnal, and written in fire. House of Cotton ushers Monica Brashears straight onto American lit's mainstage, which she should grace for a long time."
Hammer (2022)
Joe Mungo Reed
"Reed's great gift is to write about the contemporary art market, about the relationship between beauty and rapacious wealth, without cynicism or easy satire. By the time you finish Hammer, you'll feel like it all makes a kind of sense. Not to mention that - as one of Reed's characters observes, and as Hammer amply demonstrates - there are way more destructive things the super-rich could be doing with their money."
