Mark Powell recommends
Where All Light Tends to Go (2015)
David Joy
"Where All Light Tends to Go reads like the whiskey-breath of Harry Crews word-drunk on the lyricism of Daniel Woodrell. It's as brutally beautiful as it is heartbreaking."
The Cage-Maker (2017)
Nicole Seitz
"Moving fluidly between both literary forms and time periods, and in prose as gauzy and beautiful as its illustrations, Nicole Seitz's The Cage-maker is, like the birdcage at the novel's heart, something both timeless and completely new. This gorgeous and deeply moving novel is part tomorrow's blog post, part Balzac, reborn in the deep South."
News of Our Loved Ones (2018)
Abigail DeWitt
"Told in multiple voices, and spanning generations, Abigail DeWitt’s News of Our Loved Ones is a novel of astounding beauty, empathy, and eloquence. ‘Most of the world will be too young to imagine that you ever really had a life,’ laments one character. But that is not the case: here is life. And here is a book that belongs on the shelf with Irène Némirovsky’s Suite Francaise and Mohsin Hamid’s Exit West, and all of our other great works of war and peace."
