Joanna Rakoff recommends
The Possibilities (2023)
Yael Goldstein-Love
"The Possibilities explores motherhood from a place of such raw, animalistic love and with such emotional veracity that I, at times, had to put the book down and take deep breaths. It calls to mind Octavia Butler, Madeleine L'Engle, and most of all Philip K. Dick."
Pete and Alice in Maine (2023)
Caitlin Shetterly
"A vividly realistic portrait of day-to-day life during lockdown, of the ways the pandemic both cleaved families together and wrenched them apart. Laced with wry humor, Pete and Alice in Maine is that rare thing: a deeply intelligent page-turner."
Half-Life of a Stolen Sister (2023)
Rachel Cantor
"Rachel Cantor is among the most exciting, singular novelists of our time and Half-Life of a Stolen Sister is her best yet."
