Carolyn Parkhurst recommends
The Hazards of Sleeping Alone (2004)
Elise Juska
"Juska digs deep to uncover truths about loneliness, the mysteries of human connection and the delicate push pull of mother daughter relationships. She excavates, she reveals, and she gets it exactly right."
Pocket Kings (2012)
Ted Heller
"A funny, suspenseful, and completely absorbing novel about insecurity, self-sabotage, and the disintigration of a carefully constructed life."
Bright Coin Moon (2014)
Kirsten Lopresti
"Wry, poignant, and beautifully written."
The Impossible Fortress (2017)
Jason Rekulak
"The Impossible Fortress is hilarious, compulsively readable and surprisingly poignant, a teenage caper novel set in a time where U2 could still be considered a one-hit wonder and pornography was as close and as unobtainable to a 14-year-old boy as a Playboy magazine kept behind the counter at an office supply store. I absolutely loved it."
Tell the Machine Goodnight (2018)
Katie Williams
"How much control do we have over our own happiness—and would we be better off if we had the ability to nudge it just a little more?…A captivating, thought-provoking and utterly charming novel about the elusive nature of happiness and the limits of both technology and our own self-knowledge."
