Everything Here Is Under Control (2020)
Emily Adrian
"Brutally tender, ferociously intimate, astonishingly surefooted, and deeply satisfying. Emily Adrian has crafted a multilayered story whose people -- I hesitate to call them mere 'characters' -- became so real and vivid to me that I've thought about them long since finishing the book. An immersive, irresistible pleasure."
