Heidi Pitlor recommends
The Society of Shame (2023)
Jane Roper
"Fans of Where'd You Go Bernadette and Dietland are sure to love The Society of Shame. This down-to-earth, biting, cinematic, and funny novel perfectly captures the many absurdities of our modern age and the indignities of middle age for women. With intelligence and a satirical eye for the just right detail, Roper lays bare the dangers of public scrutiny and leaves readers laughing, cringing, and nodding all at once."
Joan is Okay (2022)
Weike Wang
"Joan is the perfect guide for our troubled times. I was left circling sentence after sentence."
