Rachel Khong recommends
"Headshot is a knockout, a novel as fierce and vibrant as its girl boxers. I've never read a book like this, that captures girlhood and life itself in the fleeting moments that make us."
Land of Milk and Honey (2023)
C Pam Zhang
"No one writes like C. Pam Zhang. Ferocious, sensual, and all consuming, Land of Milk and Honey is both a heartsick elegy for a world we are on the verge of losing and vibrant homage to pleasure and appetite. This book swallowed me whole and spit me out changed in the best way: buzzing, astonished, and alive."
Kill for Love (2023)
"In her clear and visceral sentences that evoke a world both like and unlike our own, Picklesimer places you completely in the narrator's haunting, singular journey."
