Heart-Breaker (2018)
Claudia Dey
"Imagine a funnier but more sinister offspring of Peyton Place and Never Let Me Go, and you approximate the world of this stunning new novel. Claudia Dey’s beautiful, off-kilter music has been missing from our literary landscape for too long—a most welcome return."

The Hunter and the Old Woman (2021)
Pamela Korgemagi
"The Old Woman of Pamela Korgemagi’s hypnotically gripping novel is a North American cougar, and its persona is a creative achievement unknown in literature. Korgemagi completely inhabits her alien protagonist, convincing us not what a cougar is like, but what it is like to be a cougar. The story’s Hunter is human, and his development from child to adult is revealed in step with the animal’s, until their lives finally intersect. It is a novel of rare empathy and insight that gives a convincing portrayal of lives spent in the wild — and what it is like to be alive with and without the familiar human awareness of self and time."
