Kathryn Davis recommends
The Possessions (2017)
Sara Flannery Murphy
"Sara Flannery Murphy casts a spell as devilish and dazzling as the language she uses to cast it. Once you enter the erotically charged, psychologically gripping world of her debut novel, 'The Possessions', there is, truly, no going back or getting out."
The Immortals of Tehran (2020)
Ali Araghi
"Araghi’s is the Iran of One Thousand and One Nights and he is our Scheherazade, the tale he’s telling is magnificent, brutal, spellbinding, as well as being—like Scheherazade’s—crucial to survival."
