Derek B Miller recommends
The Dissident (2023)
Paul Goldberg
"The Dissident is Gorky Park written by Milan Kundera if he had ever developed a sense of humor and if everyone he knew was Jewish and Russian. Goldberg crafts an unexpected and fully original Cold War mystery with a force of knowledge about his subject that runs so deep he is able to forget the details and use it for dramatic purposes the way a musician forgets the instrument and focuses on the music. What's so impressive is how he reins in all that understanding with a mature hand, selects a clear destination, and makes real dramatic and fun choices along the way while improvising like a jazz master. In one way it's a highfalutin and wild ride. But the simplicity and harmony of a good novel is never lost. The Dissident is a brilliant dose of the humanist compassion we all need right now because it brings us closer to ourselves and helps us deal with that particularly tragic problem."
The Bell in the Lake (2020)
(Sister Bells Trilogy, book 1)
Lars Mytting
"An exquisitely atmospheric novel . . . The Bell in the Lake does what fiction promises: to steal you away to another world and ask you, if unfairly, to leave a little of your heart behind."
