Rick Moody recommends
Three Delays (2010)
Charlie Smith
"Three Delays is so stunningly composed, so wildly, implausibly, excessively written, that it makes the entire shelf of novels from the last generation superflous... One of the very best prose writers in contemporary letters."
The Odditorium (2012)
Melissa Pritchard
"I have admired Melissa Pritchard's writing for several years now for its wisdom, its humble elegance, and its earthy comedy."
What Happens at Night (2020)
Peter Cameron
"Peter Cameron has long been among my favorite contemporary writers. He’s a compassionate and unsparing surveyor of all that comprises human character. What Happens at Night finds its home among the mid-twentieth-century classics of psychological realism, as brutal, in its way, as The Sheltering Sky, and just as memorable, just as peopled with the deep human mysteries. This new novel is a powerful and admirable addition to Cameron's estimable body of work."
