Help Wanted (2024)
Adelle Waldman
"Help Wanted isn't just smart and funny and wise. It's also important-vital, really-to our understanding of how and why the American dream is becoming increasingly inaccessible to working class Americans, even as that long-shot dream stubbornly refuses to die."
thumb
Bad Animals (2024)
Sarah Braunstein
"Sarah Braunstein's Bad Animals is a dazzling high-wire act. Absolutely chilling."
thumb
Set for Life (2024)
Andrew Ewell
"Have you ever wondered why some of the smartest, best educated people you know are among the most hopelessly lost? Well, so has Andrew Ewell, and he'd love to explain it to you in Set for Life, his sharp, witty and surprisingly moving academic novel."
