Roxane Gay recommends
The Great Divide (2024)
Cristina Henríquez
"The Great Divide is a beautifully written novel that is, at first glance, about the construction of the Panama Canal, but really, it's about the people whose lives were changed in ways good and bad, by man's insatiable desire to conquer - land, other people, the frailties of the human body. The prose offers both intimacy and the expansiveness of a sprawling epic. From the first page to the last, I found myself deeply invested in each of the characters so full of want, so willing to do everything and anything to satisfy those yearnings."
Land of Milk and Honey (2023)
C Pam Zhang
"The way Zhang writes about food and desire and human failings is exquisite - sensually detailed, at times visceral. This is a tremendous novel that explores the way people will break when the world itself is broken. Land of Milk and Honey is truly exceptional."
Everyone Here is Lying (2023)
Shari Lapeña
"Everyone Here Is Lying by Shari Lapena is WILD. A very satisfying thriller."
