Imbolo Mbue recommends
Devil Makes Three (2023)
Ben Fountain
"Ben Fountain's powerfully written novel is many things at once-a spy thriller, a family saga, a love story, a treasure hunt, and a tale of brutal political repression, all set in the charged atmosphere of early 1990s Haiti. By succeeding at all of these, Devil Makes Three reminds us not only of the ways an ambitious, fully engaged novel can further our understanding of the world, but also of how pleasurable and satisfying reading such a novel can be."
I Will Greet the Sun Again (2023)
Khashayar J Khabushani
"Tender, heartbreaking . . . Khabushani is an incredibly talented writer."
Happiness Falls (2023)
Angie Kim
"A brilliant novel that has everything I want in fiction--great writing, fascinating characters, suspenseful storytelling, and thought-provoking themes. Readers are going to fall in love with Happiness Falls."
