Molly Dektar recommends
Atomic Family (2023)
Ciera Horton McElroy
"The specter of nuclear disaster permeates every action of Ciera Horton McElroy's troubled and loving Porter family as they seek to make their own fates in a poisoned world. Rendering existential terror with empathy and wit, Atomic Family refracts an epoch of history through the lives of one family over one day. Heart-wrenching, engrossing, and brimming with humanity, McElroy's novel at once reveals an age gone by and resonates profoundly in our own era of dread and resistance."
The Very Nice Box (2021)
Laura Blackett and Eve Gleichman
"The Very Nice Box is a thrill ride, an enthralling tale of love and vengeance. It’s a rare novel that both sparkles with humor and pulses with deep emotion. At once a transgressive love story and an exploration of how to bring back life’s meaning after loss, the plot builds in twist after twist to a shocking ending."
