A M Homes recommends
thumb
Beware Of God (2005)
Shalom Auslander
"The stories in "Beware of God" mark the debut of the freshest voice in Jewish literature since Philip Roth arrived on the scene. Youthful, energetic, wholly original - never has Orthodox Judaism been so appealing ... In these stories not only does God speak - he does it in Dolby Surround sound."
thumb
Here They Come (2006)
Yannick Murphy
"Yannick Murphy's long-awaited Here They Come is a unique combination of rare linguistic lyricism with brutal and brilliant prose. It is an unrelenting portrait of family, terrifying for its honesty, its willingness to be ugly and elegant. Haunting."
thumb
Beautiful Children (2008)
Charles Bock
"Charles Bock has delivered an anxious, angry, honest first novel filled with compassion and clarity. Beautiful Children is fast, violent, sexy and - like a potentially dangerous ride - it could crash at any moment but never does. The language has a rhythm wholly its own - at moments it is stunning, near genius. This book is big and wild - it is as though Bock saved up everything for this moment. A major new talent."
thumb
Alice Fantastic (2009)
Maggie Estep
"There is about Maggie Estep's work a directness, a clear determination - a drive to cut through, to break through, to claw through - that is impressive."
thumb
Aliens in the Prime of Their Lives (2010)
Brad Watson
"Watson's talent is singular. Truly awesome."
thumb
The Color of Night (2011)
Madison Smartt Bell
"A truly unnerving mythical novel that asks us to piece together what is left of a shattered collective unconscious. Bell's devastated, traumatized characters surf the debris of who we are and where we've been."
thumb
Happy Family (2016)
Tracy Barone
"Filled with intimate poignancy, deft humor and pitch-perfect dialogue."
thumb
The Resurrection of Joan Ashby (2017)
Cherise Wolas
"The Resurrection of Joan Ashby is a stunning debut - because there is nothing debut about it. It arrives so fully realized that it stuns as it entertains, as it twirls the reader on the sharp point of a #2 pencil."
thumb
The Child Finder (2017)
Rene Denfeld
"A darkly luminous story of resilience and the deeply human instinct for survival, for love. Blending the magical thinking of childhood, of fairy tales, dreams, memories and nightmares, The Child Finder is a terrifying and ultimately uplifting novel that demands to be consumed and then once inside you - lingers…"
