Sandra Newman recommends
The Sleepwalkers (2024)
Scarlett Thomas
"The Sleepwalkers is never-endingly surprising and full of keen observations on relationships, politics, and art. Thomas makes real life so fraught with meaning, it feels hauntingly supernatural. A twisty Gothic tale of vertiginous depths and haunting power."
Drowning Practice (2022)
Mike Meginnis
"Drowning Practice is a magical, enigmatic novel about a society haunted by the foreknowledge of its imminent death. It's beautiful and often very funny but most of all profoundly compassionate, and also has one of the most insightful depictions I've ever seen of an abusive relationship. I loved it."
Be Here to Love Me at the End of the World (2022)
Sasha Fletcher
"A big-hearted, brainy, garrulous novel that is maybe the truest document yet of our life in the neverending end times. Stylistically, it's a marvel. Every page is full of sentences that deliver a knock-out punch. It's also that rare love story that tells you what love is like from the inside, on the long snowy Sundays of dystopian America, when lovers really get down to business. Fletcher talks about how 'the city always leaves the lights on at night. In case the angels come.' This book is one of the lights left on in case the angels come."
