Grant Ginder recommends
The Christmas Orphans Club (2023)
Becca Freeman
"I dare you to read The Christmas Orphans Club and not want to spend every single holiday of your life--Christmas or otherwise--with Hannah, Finn, Priya, and Theo. Freeman's writing is filled with wit and insight, and her dialogue crackles. Beneath the abundant humor and charm, though, is a thoughtful exploration of friendship, tradition, and the challenges of growing old. What a gift of a debut!"
Social Engagement (2023)
Avery Carpenter Forrey
"I can't remember the last time I read a book that so perfectly captures the humor, absurdity, and anguish of how we live now. Avery Carpenter Forrey's prose will cut you to the bone - it's wickedly funny, and keenly observant about matters ranging from real estate to Instagram to the perils of the wedding industrial complex. This is an astounding debut."
Dykette (2023)
Jenny Fran Davis
"Dykette is hilarious, smart, and has (in my humble opinion) the best opening scene of any novel I've read in ages. I don't think I'll ever look at the Grinch--or bathtubs--in the same way again."
Best Men (2023)
Sidney Karger
"Best Men takes the reins of the rom com and reinvents the genre in a thoroughly modern way. Karger's debut is inventive, hilarious, and satisfying; it's also a keenly-observed portrayal of love and friendship. This is a hilarious, heartfelt, charmer of a book."
Love and Other Scams (2023)
Philip Ellis
"With a sharp eye for detail and some of the funniest dialogue I've read in a long, long time, Philip Ellis has managed to give me the debut didn't know I needed: a heisty romp of rom-com that brilliantly skewers marriage, class, and love. He's the real deal, and so is his brilliant book."
Blaze Me a Sun (2023)
Christoffer Carlsson
"The most gripping novel I've read this year."
