Julia Phillips recommends
The Stone Home (2024)
Crystal Hana Kim
"Crystal Hana Kim is one of today's most exquisite writers. Her beautiful words tell a brutal story of family, state, and the history walled off during our lifetimes. It's a story we need to know, put on the page by the author we trust to tell it. Stunning, frightening, and awe-inspiring, The Stone Home is the book we have been waiting for."
The Garden (2024)
Clare Beams
"Clare Beams is a master of fiction - Born in the literary legacy of Angela Carter and Stephen King, THE GARDEN is, like every child, utterly itself in the end - miraculous and beautiful and strange."
Memory Piece (2024)
Lisa Ko
"Wild and wonderful, punk and propulsive, Memory Piece is about three friends growing from girlhood into a sinister new world. It is about authenticity, surveillance, capitalism, queerness, and the internet. It is about - it is - everything."
