Maureen F McHugh recommends
thumb
Portrait of Jennie (1940)
Robert Nathan
"There is a curious sweetness about this tragedy-a sweetness that comes from Robert Nathan's evocation of Jennie, a tender wise-innocent and muse. This story is a valentine."
thumb
The Annunciate (1999)
Severna Park
"The Annunciate has nanotechnology and spaceships, but at its heart is Severna Park's delicate calculus of human need--the need for information, for a fix, for a place to live, for a lover and for a mother...the need for hope."
