Stephanie Danler recommends
The Dinner List (2018)
"Imagine that you could gather the people you’ve loved - dead or alive- at one table, for one night, with a chance to heal yourself once and for all. The Dinner List is a heartbreakingly romantic book framed by such an evening. It’s Serle’s unflinching investigation into the triumph and failings of love that makes this book one of a kind. A touch magic, a touch tragic, and absolutely compelling from beginning to end."
Normal People (2018)
"I went into a tunnel with this book and didn’t want to come out. Absolutely engrossing and surprisingly heart-breaking with more depth, subtlety, and insight than any one novel deserves. Young love is a subject of much scorn, but Rooney understands the cataclysmic effects our youth has on the people we become. She has restored not only love’s dignity, but also its significance."
Perfect Tunes (2020)
"Perfect Tunes is an intoxicating blend of music, love, and family from one of the essential writers of the internet generation."
Kings County (2020)
"Dazzling writing, propulsive storytelling, relevant and timeless charactersthat’s exactly what David Goodwillie has accomplished in Kings County. He’s created a true urban tableau, at once gritty and hopeful. Kings County crystallizes how it feels to be young and in love in New York City."
