Celeste Ng recommends
Our Short History (2017)
Lauren Grodstein
"Lauren Grodstein breaks your heart, then miraculously pieces it back together so it’s bigger - and stronger - than before."
Woman No. 17 (2017)
Edan Lepucki
"Edan Lepucki shows herself to be a sharp-eyed chronicler of our modern world."
Sing, Unburied, Sing (2017)

"A searing, urgent read for anyone who thinks the shadows of slavery and Jim Crow have passed, and anyone who assumes the ghosts of the past are easy to placate. It's hard to imagine a more necessary book for this political era."

Everything Here Is Beautiful (2018)
