Jonathan Dee recommends
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."
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."
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."
American Pop (2019)
Snowden Wright
"The House of Forster is built on bubbles; watching each wealth-addled generation try not to blow the family fortune and/or disgrace its name provides not only excellent Southern Gothic fun but a panoramic tour of the American Century."
Carnegie Hill (2019)
Jonathan Vatner
"A marvelous book."
