Andrew Solomon recommends
The Mercy Seat (2018)
Elizabeth H Winthrop
"In this spare, taut novel, the separate stories of the people around an execution join together to form a portrait of a town, a mentality, a moment in time. This is a compelling, sorrowful read, deeply perceptive and wonderfully full of grace."
Red, White, Blue (2018)
Lea Carpenter
"With the elegant restraint of an intelligence operative herself, Lea Carpenter unwinds the complex relationship between a daughter and her secretive father. Her book delves into the obscure culture of the CIA, but even deeper into the way that a man’s necessarily hidden life impinges on his child’s sense of coherence. This is a riveting and disturbing account of attachments that can never be fully resolved, a book about dignity and discretion and their oblique relationship to intimacy."
