Sarah Rose Etter recommends
Cleaner (2023)
Brandi Wells
"The most richly crafted delusion of a novel since Ottessa Moshfegh's Eileen. I couldn't put it down - an exquisite novel!"
At the Edge of the Woods (2023)
Kathryn Bromwich
"A rich and bewitching novel. Kathryn Bromwich has spun up a delicate world that interrogates the dark side of love, the wild power of nature, and the strength it takes to break free."
Cursed Bread (2023)
Sophie Mackintosh
"The thing I love most about this book is that even if you know the plot, there's no way to anticipate how Sophie Mackintosh handles the narrative. The sentences here are pristine, the structure is on point, the entire novel unravels into the grotesque in an ending that is visceral & wild. She's a master. You won't be disappointed. But then again, with Sophie's books, you never are."
The Disaster Tourist (2020)
Yun ko-Eun
"A labyrinth of catastrophes and cataclysms, The Disaster Tourist is a precisely penned novel that lays bare the human condition. Mysterious, evocative, and rich."
