Jonathan Safran Foer recommends
The House of Love and Prayer (2023)
Tova Reich
"Fearless, hysterically funny, and with the sharpest eye for truth and falsity, Tova Reich is a brilliant writer."
The Rabbit Hutch (2022)
Tess Gunty
"Just when everything seemed designed for a brief moment of utility before its planned obsolescence, here comes The Rabbit Hutch, a profoundly wise, wildly inventive, deeply moving work of art whose seemingly infinite offerings will remain with you long after you finish it. Each page of this novel contains a novel, a world."
A Novel Obsession (2022)
Caitlin Barasch
"Caitlin Barasch's writing overflows with humor, compassion, intrigue, and the chaos of identity. It overflows with life itself."
