Rachel Kadish recommends
The Lioness of Boston (2023)
Emily Franklin
"The Lioness of Boston is a treasure trove of art, sensuality, Boston history, and more. Emily Franklin has captured Isabella Stewart Gardner's blazing life and the light it sheds on the lives of women then and now."
Delphi (2022)
Clare Pollard
"We need the ancients to explain today to us, and we need Clare Pollard. In brief, brilliant passages, Pollard confronts the shadow-play of our screen-entranced lives, and offers this simultaneous comfort and curse: we are not the first to live these griefs and these bewilderments. Delphi is the strangest, best thing I've read in ages."
House on Endless Waters (2020)
Emuna Elon
"An elegant, eloquent novel--a story in which time and language melt to reveal truths that could be told in no other way."
