Haven Kimmel recommends
Glad News of the Natural World (2005)
(Neely, book 5)
T R Pearson
"I can think of no other contemporary writer who offers such surprises -- it is impossible to predict even how a sentence will end. . . . Pearson is surely among the greatest living Southern writers."
The Transcriptionist (2014)
Amy Rowland
"Sly and humane and with a delicate touch of surrealism, The Transcriptionist is a masterpiece."
The Weight of Him (2017)
Ethel Rohan
"I read enthralled by the beautifully captured protagonist, Billy Brennan, who tries to make sense of his son's death by losing half of his body weight. It's a story of grief, to be sure, and overwhelming appetites, but it's also a lovely meditation on fatherhood, and hope."
