Jane Hamilton recommends

The Ladies' Man (1998)
Elinor Lipman
"Delicious and hilarious - the ladies' man and all his ladies are sublime."

Loving Frank (2007)
Nancy Horan
"It takes great courage to write a novel about historical people, and in particular to give voice to someone as mythic as Frank Lloyd Wright. This beautifully written novel about Mamah Cheney and Frank Lloyd Wright's love affair is vivid and intelligent, unsentimental and compassionate."
A Watch of Nightingales
A Watch of Nightingales (2008)
Liza Wieland
"Liza Wieland understands down to the bone how loneliness and love compel her characters to make their impossible choices. Not only does she have a searing intelligence and wisdom, her prose is by turns graceful and astonishing."

Wayward Saints (2012)
Suzzy Roche
"Not every dazzling musician has a novel in her, but Suzzy Roche, among all her other gifts, is a novelist, the genuine article. Wayward Saints is funny, smart, poignant, the prose so clear, so direct, so true. This book is a joy."
