Catherine Newman recommends
Goodbye Birdie Greenwing (2024)
Ericka Waller
"Oh, the exquisite, tender misfits in Goodbye Birdie Greenwing! I love them all. I love the way loneliness is gathered up into such a delightfully odd community. I love the entire book."
Blank (2024)
Zibby Owens
"This is a sunny rom-com with a deep, dark heart - comedic and sad in equal measures. Yes, it's a meta-satire about the publishing industry, but it's also an authentically serious story about the pressure to be everything to everyone. Or, in other words, about what it means to be a woman."
Significant Others (2024)
Zoe Eisenberg
"Significant Others is so intimately raw and hopeful, I couldn't put it down and when I finally did, because I'd finished it, I had literal goosebumps. To write this way about families and friendships made and remade, about the push and pull of love and the way we're all just crazy puzzle pieces floating around, trying to understand what the whole picture might look like and how beautiful it might be - amazing"
