Rebecca Rukeyser recommends
Ponyboy (2023)
Eliot Duncan
"Ponyboy is a novel about self-immolation and rising from your own ashes with a spent match between your teeth. It's also one of the best books I've read about expat dirtbaggery, and ferociously portrays the velvety allure of oblivion and the terror, eroticism, and bright urgency of coming home to yourself."
Notes on Her Color (2023)
Jennifer Neal
"This novel is an ode to the artistic and individual truth and an unflinching examination of soft-spoken suburban bigotry; it's a crescendo of Florida hurricanes, first love, and the undeniability of becoming yourself. The remarkable protagonist of Notes on Her Color practices Chopin's second piano scherzo, a piece described by Schumann as 'so overflowing with tenderness, boldness, love, and contempt.' The same is all true of Jennifer Neal's lyrical and urgent debut."
