Jessica Francis Kane recommends
What Could Be Saved (2021)
Liese O'Halloran Schwarz
"A gripping story of a family unraveling and the sibling love that ultimately endures. A great read."
What You Can See from Here (2021)
Mariana Leky
"On finishing What You Can See from Here, I was bereft. I dare you to try to read this book slowly. Central to the story is the idea of how much of the world to let into our lives, how much each of us can actually manage. Well, I implore you to let this book into your life. It’s a wonder you won’t forget."
Search (2022)
Michelle Huneven
"The committee at the heart of Huneven's wonderful Search is a portrait of a community working toward that most elusive of goals--a unanimous decision. The alliances and betrayals along the way reveal that even when a group of people share a common passion, the path to consensus can be tortuous. Fortunately, in Huneven's masterful prose it is also insightful, revealing, and very funny."
