Dave Eggers recommends

James (2024)
Percival Everett
"This is a brilliant, accessible, and very necessary companion to Huckleberry Finn."
thumb
Same Bed Different Dreams (2023)
Ed Park
"A book of dizzying scope and erudition . . . very funny, intimate, and playful and interested in basic questions of existence, beginning with: Why are we here and what gives us meaning?"
thumb
Fire in the Canyon (2023)
Daniel Gumbiner
"Daniel Gumbiner is fast becoming a sort of 21st century Steinbeck, authoritatively illuminating life in California, with all its glories and calamity. Filled with vivid characters and deep knowledge of the land, this is a commanding second novel."
