Jeffrey Eugenides recommends
Garden State (1992)
Rick Moody
"A brave, remarkable and beautiful book."
Home Land (2004)
Sam Lipsyte
"Sam Lipsyte is original, devious, and very funny."
The Secret Goldfish (2004)
David Means
"Propulsive, riveting, wonderfully atmospheric."
A Strange Commonplace (2006)
Gilbert Sorrentino
"Sorrentino [is] a writer like no other. He's learned, companionable, ribald, brave, mathematical, at once virtuosic and somehow without ego. Sorrentino's books break free of the routine that inevitably accompanies traditional narrative and through a passionate renunciation shine with an unforgiving, yet cleansing, light."
The Female Persuasion (2018)
Meg Wolitzer
"The wit, intelligence and deep feeling of Wolitzer's writing are extraordinary."
