Claire Oshetsky recommends
Normal Women (2023)
Ainslie Hogarth
"Ainslie Hogarth is the master of first sentences, and the god of surprising verbs."
Endpapers (2023)
Jennifer Savran Kelly
"Jennifer Savran Kelly's Endpapers is the most personal novel about life as a gender-nonconforming person that I've ever read. It opens a window into what it's like to live in a world where you need to disguise who you are just to get along, and yet, at its heart, it remains an abundantly hopeful story. It's a story full of messy, true life. I'm so glad I read it."
Bookworm (2023)
Robin Yeatman
"Imagine if Patricia Highsmith had written The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and instead of heroic daydreams she gave her protagonist murderous ones - that would be Bookworm. Robin Yeatman's story is subversive, surprising, and satisfying in a way that only the best comic noir can be."
