Karl Ove Knausgaard recommends

The Dead (2018)
Christian Kracht
"A great Faustian fable, and a literary endeavor of historical ingenuity that we now may start to characterize as Krachtian."

Acts of Desperation (2021)
Megan Nolan
"Megan Nolan is a huge literary talent, and her first novel, Acts of Desperation, is a love story like no other. The writing is intense and honest, with a rare access to real life, but it is also reflective and full of insights, and with this combination the novel manages to separate the idea of love and the experience of it, and take the reader to the place where it comes into being."
