Karan Mahajan recommends
The Incendiaries (2018)
R O Kwon
"A swift, sensual novel about the unraveling of a collegiate relationship and its aftermath. Kwon writes gracefully about the spiritual insecurities of millennials."
The World Is a Narrow Bridge (2018)
Aaron Thier
"Hilarious, absurd, and cosmically attuned."
Trinity (2018)
Louisa Hall
"Trinity is an intelligent and sweeping account of the characters - some real, some fictional - swirling around the testing of the first atomic bomb. It is also an affecting meditation on the ways in which we betray others and, in the process, ourselves."
99 Nights in Logar (2019)
Jamil Jan Kochai
"Ferocious, funny, rude, and freewheeling, 99 Nights in Logar is an insider’s portrait of modern Afghanistan—written with deep affection and zero piety. A brilliant and stylish debut."
