Mary Beth Keane recommends
After Annie (2024)
Anna Quindlen
"The characters in After Annie are flawed, just as each of us is flawed, and as they fumble through their grief, as they make mistakes, their lives feel so authentically lived-in that I'd swear I've known them my whole life. And how I rooted for them! In Anna Quindlen's hands, a story about the greatest of losses becomes a story of abiding hope above all. I predict this will be one of the best novels of the year."
Death Valley (2023)
Melissa Broder
"I've never read a novel that portrays grief quite like Death Valley. Melissa Broder captures both the punishing ordinariness of loss while also showing us how extraordinary it is to have been here at all. There is deep wisdom in these pages."
Happiness Falls (2023)
Angie Kim
"I began reading Happiness Falls expecting a murder mystery. What I got was the most moving and humbling portrait of humanity I've read in quite some time."
