Beth Kephart recommends
Graphic the Valley (2013)
Peter Brown Hoffmeister
"Hoffmeister, like James Joyce, is a man inventing language. He has no time for, no patience with, commonplace storytelling or obvious frames. He’s a remarkable writer, this Hoffmeister, but he’s not an easy one. Easy doesn’t interest him."
The Leaving (2016)
Tara Altebrando
"We are rushed headlong into Altebrando's The Leaving, and instantly we want to know: Who are these wildly intriguing teens? Where are their memories hiding? Who or what has engineered the disappearance of their childhood? Bold, inventive, and engaging, The Leaving leaps straight off the page."
Exile Music (2020)
Jennifer Steil
"Vienna, Austria and La Paz, Bolivia; war and peace; immediate love and mingled yearning; tangled desires sprung from single seeds—Exile Music is a magnificent exercise in connections among objects, ideas, and places that seem to have nothing in common, but do."
