Cathleen Schine recommends
Search (2022)
Michelle Huneven
"Michelle Huneven writes with the clarity of both warmth and wit. She knows, and cherishes, the absurdity of the human spirit. And there are recipes!"
The Resisters (2020)
Gish Jen
"Can there be a dystopian novel of lightness, delicacy and charm? In which baseball, our subtle, determined summer game, is the means of resistance against the dehumanizing overlords? In which a girl who pitches like Satchel Paige is the blue-haired hero? Gish Jen says, Yes! And she is right! Where there is baseball, there is hope. And beautiful prose, too."
The High Season (2018)
Judy Blundell
"Touching, funny, and emotionally precise, recognizable yet full of surprises . . . Forget the Hamptons: Blundell’s North Fork is where the real drama—and fun—blow in."
The Atlas of Love (2010)
Laurie Frankel
"Immensely likable, playful and literary, this is a novel full of love."
