A M Homes recommends

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."
Here They Come
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."
Beautiful Children

Brad Watson

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."

Happy Family (2016)
Tracy Barone
"Filled with intimate poignancy, deft humor and pitch-perfect dialogue."

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…"
