James Morrow recommends

Venus of Shadows (1988)
(Venus , book 2)
Pamela Sargent
"I could see Pamela Sargent's Venus, hear it, smell it, taste it, and once - a true story - I dreamed about it."

At the City Limits of Fate (1996)
Michael Bishop
"Forrest Gump's mother, in her eternal insipidity, insisted that life is like a box of chocolates. It isn't. But Michael Bishop's new short-story collection, I discovered, does resemble a box of chocolates. Be warned, however: the confectioner is a bit of a madman and something of a sorcerer, and when you bite into one of these goodies, you never know what's going to fly out: a Japanese demon, a malevolent butterfly, a numinous cat, a blob of Savior's blood. At the City Limits of Fate is habit-forming and delicious. Eat up."

My Father's Ghost (2002)
Suzy McKee Charnas
"...his daughter conveys each lesson with an unflinching eye, a knowing voice, and a forgiving heart."
Three Marys
Three Marys (2003)
Paul Park
"To the short list of successful New Testament extrapolations--a literature that includes Alain Absire's Lazarus, Jose Saramago's The Gospel According to Jesus Christ, and Nikos Kazantzakis's The Last Temptation of Christ--I would now add Three Marys."
