Peter Geye recommends
"The devil didn't go down to Georgia, he went to Arkansas, where the Bayne family struggle against Beelzebub's grip on their collective fates. Middleton's debut has it all--sex, song, sadness, and a history as dark and twisted as the Ozark hollers that fill these pages. Holy hell, what a book."
The Wildlands (2018)
"In a novel with a locomotive plot and an urgent political timeliness, it’s a true testament to Abby Geni’s authorial prowess and big heart that the most memorable thing about this book is the love and determination of a family beset by tragedy. You’ll be a better, wiser person after you read this book. You’ll also be thrilled, from first page to last."
Winter Loon (2018)
"Winter Loon is a stunner. In gorgeous, laconic prose, Susan Bernhard has brought to life an unforgettable character in Wes Ballot, whose coming-of-age is marked as much by his own resilience as it is the tragedy of his circumstances. I read this book late into the night. I bet you will, too."
The Weight of a Piano (2019)
"Cander takes readers into new and uncharted territory with a story that spans a century, continents, cultures, and many lives. This novel is sly and sexy and serendipitous, and through the magic and wisdom surrounding a single piano it helps to restore what is beautiful in both art and life. To me, The Weight of a Piano already feels indelible."
The Great Offshore Grounds (2020)
"Vanessa Veselka writes with the power of the ocean tides, and The Great Offshore Grounds teems with life as beguiling and beautiful as any undersea grotto. This novel is warmhearted and coldblooded and I'll never forget Livy and Cheyenne and their fierce bond and bottomless wonder. Neither will you."
