Torrey Peters recommends
People Collide (2023)
"A profound and moving meditation on love and commitment swapped into the body of a gripping literary thriller - I predict Isle McElroy's People Collide will inaugurate an entire genre."
Biography of X (2023)
"Biography of Xis the most ambitious book I've ever read from a writer of my own generation. Epic world-building revealed through intimate emotion and dangerously honed sentences; a story that mixes fact and fiction to create a new register of truth, a register that belongs entirely to Catherine Lacey. I'm awed."
The Queens of Sarmiento Park (2022)
Camila Sosa Villada
"Every so often, a slim book absolutely clobbers you with its exuberance and beauty - for me, this was that book."
"Davis is an astounding writer, seemingly unconstrained by taboos and waist deep down in the maw of life, examining what the rest of us shy away from--never more than here in X, the rare book that can thrill and entertain, while simultaneously causing you to question everything about how you're living."
We Do What We Do in the Dark (2022)
"A beautiful book so filled with sharp longing and perfectly phrased vulnerability that I read it in a reverent hush."
At Certain Points We Touch (2022)
Lauren John Joseph
"Lauren John Joseph writes with such wit, glamour, and style! I haven't read a book that so powerfully evokes what it's like to be a wild young artist among other wild young artists since the Bright Young Things."
