Megha Majumdar recommends
The Archer (2021)
Shruti Swamy
"Shruti Swamy is a writer to celebrate. Her fiction is provocative, precise, and gorgeously inventive."
My Monticello (2021)
Jocelyn Nicole Johnson
"My Monticello is a magnificent debut that holds so much in its gaze--great love and great oppression, tremendous individual courage and systemic racism, futures of joyful justice and futures of extremism. This breathtaking, artful book is a gift."
Brown Girls (2022)
Daphne Palasi Andreades
"An exhilarating novel. It is alive with the complicated yet vast love of immigrant mothers, American daughters, and childhood friends. I treasure this book's artistic daring, its pathos, and its marvellous playfulness."
Circa (2022)
Devi S Laskar
"Circa tells beautifully of the confines of grief, the courage that love compels, and the friendship that is at the heart of every enduring relationship. Devi Laskar is a gem of a writer."
Meet Us by the Roaring Sea (2022)
Akil Kumarasamy
"Akil Kumarasamy's wild, playful, terrifying, grief-struck novel Meet Us by the Roaring Sea offers an unsettling vision of the future that rises from profound contemplation of history. A spellbinding book."
