Lauren Grodstein recommends
You Don't Love This Man (2011)
Dan DeWeese
"Dan DeWeese’s elegantly written novel tells the story - alternately joyful and heartbreaking - of a father coming to terms with what he’s made of his life. It’s one of those novels I know I’ll return to, and pass on, in admiration and delight."
Shadow Man (2017)
Alan Drew
"Part murder mystery, part family drama, Alan Drew's Shadow Man has everything I like in a novel: grit, heart, and nail-biting suspense. It's the sort of magically absorbing novel that keeps you turning the pages and checking the locks on the door."
