Heidi Julavits recommends
The Convalescent (2009)
Jessica Anthony
"Jessica Anthony is a writer possessed of mind-bending talents. Inconceivably, she's written a novel that's innocent and wise, grave and hilarious, bleak and hopeful, fast-paced and meditative, heartbreaking and heart healthy, evanescent and concrete. Reading it, I felt as though I'd stumbled upon a magical text that might, at any moment, disappear from my hands. The Convalescent is that kind of special."

Alix Ohlin
"Expect to hear her spoken of in the same reverent breath as Lorrie Moore and Joy Williams."
The Accomplished Guest (2017)
Ann Beattie
"One of America's finest authors--and arguably best living short-story writer."
