Dinaw Mengestu recommends
Spaceman of Bohemia (2017)
Jaroslav Kalfar
"Spaceman of Bohemia is a wise and elegant work composed of its own unique ethereal grace - a hauntingly beautiful story of solitude, hope, family, and love that transcends, uplifts, carries the reader away."
The Family Clause (2020)
Jonas Hassen Khemiri
"Jonas Hassen Khemiri’s The Family Clause is a bold and remarkable novel - a marvel of form and imagination that is also miraculously full of heart and compassion."
Hades, Argentina (2021)
Daniel Loedel
"A remarkable novel, personal and political, elegiac and intimate, with a tenderness and wisdom evident in every passage. A beautiful book."
