Katherine Heiny recommends
You Are Here (2024)
David Nicholls
"David Nicholls is one of the best writers at chronicling the way annoyance and resentment are often irretrievably mixed with love and empathy. This is a love story but never predictable - Nicholls stays one step ahead of the reader in the sharpest, funniest way. If you're looking for a great comic novel, You Are Here."
Lost on Me (2023)
Veronica Raimo
"A uproariously funny portrait of an unconventional family from a writer who knows the sliver of ice in the heart as well as she knows love. This deliciously enjoyable novel is a true original and one to savor."
Late Bloomers (2023)
Deepa Varadarajan
"Late Bloomers follows the lives of a South Indian-American family as they deal with love in all its permutations: marital, romantic, familial, lost, unrequited. Deepa Varadarajan deftly weaves modern-day problems like internet dating and complicated living arrangements with the eternal yearning for acceptance and the ageless desire to live up to family expectations. Secrets, relationships, and food; there is truly nothing more you could ask for in a novel."
