Nathan Englander recommends
Cleopatra and Frankenstein (2022)
Coco Mellors
"An irresistible, un-put-downable, page-turner of a novel. A love letter to New York, a love letter to love, Cleopatra and Frankenstein is a complex, funny, deeply-felt, beautifully written debut."
Skinship (2021)
Yoon Choi
"A debut story collection that introduces us to a master of the form. Skinship, and the intricate, lovingly rendered characters in it, will stay with me forever. Yoon Choi has a fan for life."
Objects of Desire (2021)
Clare Sestanovich
"Clare Sestanovich is a gifted observer and writes a sentence sharp enough to cut yourself on . . . A magnificent debut."
