Nathan Englander recommends
Come with Me (2018)
Helen Schulman
"Helen Schulman once again displays her gift for mining the human story from the overwhelming complexities of modern times. While deftly exploring multiple realities--from digital relationships and technological disruption, to nuclear power and quantum mechanics-- Come with Me transports us to a singular, moving and powerful end."
