Idra Novey recommends
Alice Sadie Celine (2023)
Sarah Blakley-Cartwright
"Sarah Blakley-Cartwright subverts all kinds of expectations with this sharply drawn trio of strong-willed women. Vibrant, sensual, and full of irreverent humor, Alice, Sadie, Celine is an outstanding first novel."
Lost and Found (2022)
(Vera Kelly, book 3)
Rosalie Knecht
"With Vera Kelly, Rosalie Knecht has resurreacted the dectective novel for the 21st century."
Saint Sebastian's Abyss (2022)
Mark Haber
"There is a refreshing lightsomeness to the writing in Mark Haber's new novel about art and the absurdity of academic life. The mix of love and hostility exchanged between the two art critics in this novel is both endearing and ridiculous at once. Their territorial battles over the same work of art, their willingness to upend their marriages and much of their lives over a single painting, made me laugh aloud with recognition. An absolute delight, and Haber's love of writing comes through on every page."
