Miranda Cowley Heller recommends
Alchemy of a Blackbird (2023)
"Claire Macmillan's clever, inventive take on the historical novel tells the story of the surrealist painter Remedios Varos's journey to becoming a remarkable artist - how the friendships, twists, joys and pains of her life, when pressed together, turned her art into gold."
Little Monsters (2023)
"Beautiful, lyrical and unvarnished, Adrienne Brodeur's Little Monsters delivers its powerful emotional punches so subtly that they sneak up on you and leave you floored."
High Time (2023)
"Hannah Rothschild's new novel High Time is the perfect summer read: mischievous and delicious. I devoured it in one go."
The Half Moon (2023)
Mary Beth Keane
"Mary Beth Keane writes to the heart of the human heart. She shows us how love can deepen, how love can stall - hang in the sky like a half moon, waxing and waning in the same moment, equal parts shadow and light. I could not put this book down."
Pineapple Street (2023)
"Set in the windy, sun-dappled streets of Brooklyn Heights, Pineapple Street is a portrait of a NY family strait-jacketed by their own wealth that is at once searing, hilarious and poignant."
The Great Reclamation (2023)
"The Great Reclamation is an extraordinary achievement - an epic love story set in a world at war within and without itself. Every page pulses with mud and magic. I loved it."
