All the World Beside (2024)
Garrard Conley
"In this accomplishment of breathtaking prose, expert pacing, and extraordinary psychological intelligence, Conley presents a world as it was, as it is, and as it could be. A triumph."

Wandering Stars (2024)
Tommy Orange
"Here is something rare: a novel as generous as it is genius. The care coursing through these pages - care for people, care for art, care for truth - is nothing short of radical. Orange writes with a historian's attention to detail and a poet's attention to language, animating every passage with an energy that only he can conjure, transfixing and transforming. Wandering Stars is not just a book; it is a creature made of song and blood, multitudinous and infinite. This novel is alive."

Vengeance Is Mine (2023)
Marie NDiaye
"A novel of concentric haunting, summoning ghosts into the room with prose that shimmers, cuts, and sings. Unflinching and restrained, Vengeance Is Mine sails its readers into uncharted psychological waters. I was hypnotized from the first word to the last."
