Alex McElroy recommends
Out There (2022)
Kate Folk
"The stories in this stunning debut are funny, fearless, and moving portraits of life shaped by the ever-widening shadow of technological progress."
The Boy with a Bird in His Chest (2022)
Emme Lund
"Emme Lund's The Boy with a Bird in His Chest is the queer coming of age novel I wish I'd had when I was a teenager. Funny and gutting, tender and scorchingly honest, surreal and a little too real, this novel captures the pain and joy of learning to live with your body and all its desires. The Boy with a Bird in His Chest reads like The Perks of Being a Wallflowers written by Kelly Link. Lund's vision is striking, resonant, and unforgettable."
