The Brutal Language of Love (2001)
Alicia Erian
"This isn't just a book. This is hilarious, heartbreaking torture."

Dear Mr. President (2002)
Gabe Hudson
"Mr. Hudson's style goes from zero to one hundred MPH in the first sentence. Faster than a Road Runner cartoon, he reminds us war can be funny as hell."

The Contortionist's Handbook (2002)
Craig Clevenger
"I swear to God this is the best book I have read in easily five years. Easily. Maybe ten years."

Home Land (2004)
Sam Lipsyte
"I laughed out loud -- and I never laugh out loud."

Rust and Bone (2005)
Craig Davidson
"Davidson...smudges the line between comedy and horror, cruelty and mercy. His remarkable stories are challenging and upsetting...Don't look for comfort here."

One Kick (2014)
(Kick Lannigan, book 1)
Chelsea Cain
"In her Heartsick series Cain might cut your heart out. With One Kick she breaks it. If you're not crying by page 188 and terrified by page 290, you're not reading the right book."

The Book of Joan (2017)
Lidia Yuknavitch
"It’s unfair to compare Yuknavitch to only female authors. With her verve and bold imagination, she’s earned the throne left empty since the death of David Foster Wallace."

Entropy in Bloom (2017)
Jeremy Robert Johnson
"A dazzling writer, Seriously amazing short stories. When I read them, they made stand still."
