Marilynne Robinson recommends

Aerialists (2018)
Mark Mayer
"Mayer's stories are singular, as intimate as dreaming."
thumb
Foregone (2021)
Russell Banks
"Foregone is a subtle meditation on a life composed of half-forgotten impulses and their endless consequences, misapprehensions of others that are accepted and exploited almost passively, a minor heroism that is only enhanced by demurral. In the rages of a sick old man profound questions arise--what is a life? A self? And what is lost when truth destroys the fabrications that sustain other lives?"
