Kristopher Jansma recommends
The Futures (2017)
"Anna Pitoniak's debut novel, THE FUTURES, is the perfect cocktail of smart prose, heartwarming characters, and unmatched savvy about modern city life."
"Snappy and irresistible, Perennials takes readers back to summer camp, where her characters' first friendships and treasons play out in sharp dialogue and playful, generous prose."
Little Disasters (2018)
"Twisting and turning on every page, LITTLE DISASTERS by Randall Klein pulls readers deep into the lives of two Brooklyn couples whose fates are entwined one night outside of a hospital delivery room. Expertly written and exciting, this novel explores what it means to face great loss-- and how to be even greater, as a parent, a partner, and a friend."
