Stacey D'Erasmo recommends
Housemates (2024)
Emma Copley Eisenberg
"The brilliant, queer, abundant, art-drunk, soulful, sexy American road-trip novel we've needed for so long."
The Cemetery of Untold Stories (2024)
Julia Alvarez
"What a love letter not only to storytelling, but also to the tender, urgent, funny, heartbreaking reasons we tell stories in the first place. This cemetery is a fertile field of rebirth, reawakening, and joy. Every page overflows with delight and wisdom."
Broughtupsy (2024)
Christina Cooke
"A luminous tale of a latter-day Antigone who navigates grief, love, death, sex, violence, language, queerness, race, and three countries with courage, joy, and a tender heart. Broughtupsy is an instant classic and Christina Cooke brings beauty and truth to every page."
