Maile Meloy recommends

Vintage Contemporaries (2023)
Dan Kois
"A delightful, funny novel that asks the question, Is writing about happiness an important thing to do?--while doing exactly that, so beautifully and convincingly that it's like a magic trick."
thumb
The Distance Home (2018)
Paula Saunders
"A bracing and beautiful novel about a fierce struggle for love and understanding in a South Dakota family, and about aspiration (both thwarted and encouraged) in an unforgiving place. Read it - it will break your heart and open it up."
