Percival Everett recommends
The Infinite Future (2018)
Tim Wirkus
"Tim Wirkus has channeled the ghost of Laurence Sterne and the imagination of Rene Magritte. From the foreword on I was taken by this novel. Entertaining, fun and very, very smart, the story is everywhere at once, but never lost. This is a house of mirrors worth entering."
If I Survive You (2022)
Jonathan Escoffery
"These are superb stories about identity, family and place. There is a beautiful economy in the telling that never sacrifices the depth, complexity and richness of the worlds these characters inhabit. Jonathan Escoffery's is a strong, much needed new voice in our literature."
