Howard Norman recommends

All Is Forgotten, Nothing Is Lost (2010)
Lan Samantha Chang
"Lucy, Roman, Bernard, and Miranda are characters you won't soon forget. In their passionate, demanding, wrecked, and joyous literary lives, they thrive on their belief in language's absolute authority. This deeply affecting--and elegant--novel by Lan Samantha Chang definitely offers what Leonard Cohen calls his whole career in song: All day and night, versions of the erotic. I wish I could live long enough to discover this novel in an attic trunk a hundred years in the future, and exclaim, so this is what 'poetic education' really meant."

The Poison Artist (2016)
Jonathan Moore
"With The Poison Artist, Jonathan Moore has given us a brilliant debut thriller, confident, mesmerizing, edgy and very cool. So much happens on every page, it's almost dizzying. Hitchcock should come back from the grave and film this story."

Broken Wing (2016)
David Budbill
"A rusty blackbird and The an Who Lives Alone in the Mountains are both signature characters from hermit-obsessed mind and heart of David Budbill. All of his life David Budhill has paid homage to this iconic poet recluses of China by imparting their philosophical dignity, eccentricity, and spiritual probity into his beloved north country. Broken Wing is both a continuation of that project--and an autonomously haunting allegory. A prolific and passionate writer, a beautiful story."
