Daniel Mason recommends
Vigil Harbor (2022)
Julia Glass
"Vigil Harbor is a gripping work of the imagination, its place and ensemble cast both familiar and wonderfully uncanny. Julia Glass's virtuosity has a sweeping, almost tidal quality befitting the landscape of the harbor itself--I found myself in awe at the ease with which she moves across both time and minds."
Circus of Wonders (2021)
Elizabeth Macneal
"Circus of Wonders is a soaring, tumbling, whip-cracking book. Elizabeth Macneal has brought an extraordinary group of characters together in these pages; the result is a glittering world, a story as moving as it is deeply entertaining."
Hieroglyphics (2020)
Jill McCorkle
"Hieroglyphics is a powerful, deeply moving testament to both the ties of family and the taut fragility of memory's plumb-line. Shelley, Harvey, Lil and Frank felt so real that it seemed as if I had known them for many years; this book stayed with me well beyond the last page."
