Julia (2023)
Sandra Newman
"This extraordinary novel is like a newly discovered room in your house, in a dream - the illusion is so precise, the execution so masterful, that you think it must have been there all along, just waiting for you to find it. Sandra Newman has succeeded wildly at the impossible task she was given; JULIA should surprise and delight not only devotees of Orwell's classic, but fans of Newman's own daring, disquieting, and emotionally affecting oeuvre."

Endpapers (2023)
Jennifer Savran Kelly
"Part portrait of the artist, part queer coming-of-age, and part investigative puzzle, this intimate, emotional novel parlays romance, passion, politics, and history into a compelling tale, beautifully and insightfully told. Jennifer Savran Kelly is an exciting, empathetic new voice."

The Silverberg Business (2022)
Robert Freeman Wexler
"This philosophical Jewish-Texan retro-neo-noir--at once detective story, western, and ambling picaresque--is populated by a memorable cast of schemers, toughs, and oddballs, and rendered with a keen eye and ear for detail."
