Amy Meyerson recommends
142 Ostriches (2020)
April Dávila
"142 Ostriches is unlike anything I've read before. Wholly unique, this cinematic novel exposes readers to the relatively unknown industry of ostrich farming. In Davila's skillful hands, the desert comes alive and the ostriches are as compelling as the human characters. Tallulah herself is a memorable, strong-willed protagonist. Her struggle to negotiate family obligations with her own desires feels both singular and highly relatable. I loved following her through the pages of this fast-paced and lovely novel."
Set My Heart to Five (2020)
Simon Stephenson
"Set My Heart to Five is one of the most original, funny, and heartwarming stories I’ve read in years. This novel has it all—humor, insight, social commentary, romance, Hollywood, the end of society as we know it, old movies, and classic cars. Jared may be a bot, but he feels emotions more acutely than most humans. I loved following him through the pages of this clever and poignant novel. Set My Heart to Five will set your heart well past that. It certainly did mine."
Mother Land (2020)
Leah Franqui
"Lively and evocative, Mother Land is a deftly crafted exploration of identity and culture, with memorable and deeply human characters who highlight how that which makes us different can ultimately unite us."
The Wrong Kind of Woman (2020)
Sarah McCraw Crow
"The Wrong Kind of Woman is the right kind of book. A beautifully written exploration of loss, the novel captures its characters at the cusp of personal and social change. Sarah McCraw Crow deftly navigates the campus and national politics of the '70s in a way that remains timely and pressing today. A powerful, thought-provoking debut."
The Lost Manuscript (2021)
Cathy Bonidan
"When Anne-Lise Briard finds an abandoned manuscript in a hotel nightstand, it sets off a chain of events that connects a lively cast of characters as, one by one, they are transformed by the spellbinding novel. Told entirely in letters--and the occasional email--The Lost Manuscript celebrates the unique ability of books to unite strangers and to enrich lives. As charming as it is inventive, this clever novel is an absolute delight to read."
