Judith Claire Mitchell recommends
Full Bloom (2020)
"Judith Arnold's delicious novel about a family running the best deli on New York's Upper West Side has it all: wit and wisdom, intelligence and heart, drama and laugh-out-loud comedy, gonifs and mensches, knishes and wine. In short, this wry look at the conflicts and joys that constitute family life is the everything bagel of novels, and I happily devoured it."
The Last Interview (2020)
"In Eshkol Nevo’s extraordinary The Last Interview, a writer reflects on that which sustains and troubles the human heart, including the fragility of love, the friability of truth, the constancy of friendship, and the certainty of loss. Through engaging prose, poignant storytelling, and the sorrowful yet irresistible voice of Nevo’s unforgettable narrator, we are asked to consider the question: How should we be in the world? Always heartfelt and often heartbreaking, The Last Interview is ultimately a balm for those of us living in these troubled times."
