Téa Obreht recommends

Get in Trouble (2015)
Kelly Link
"With Get in Trouble, Kelly Link continues to prove just how much of a literary tightrope walker she really is. Her prose is conveyed in details so startling and fine that each one is like a firework in the brain. You work up a sweat just waiting for the next sentence to land. This is why we read, crave, need, can't live without short stories."

The Unseen World (2016)
Liz Moore
"A staggeringly beautiful meditation on love, legacy and the emotional necessities that make life worth living."

The Marsh King's Daughter (2017)
Karen Dionne
"Eerie and breathtaking, terrific and terrifying in the best possible way."
