A Flaw in the Design (2023)
Nathan Oates
"This suspenseful debut novel keeps the reader on tenterhooks in a fearful family drama. Oh, this demands a sequel!"
thumb
Cat Brushing (2022)
Jane Campbell
"In thirteen revivifying stories, thirteen candid, empathic portraits of aging women for whom desire yet smolders, Campbell proves aging is a complex sport. Some mental agility is required, some wit and wisdom. Befuddlement and remorse are a part of play, too, but the stories offer the solace of shared experience and company."

The Orchard (2022)
Between Dog and Wolf

Kristina Gorcheva-Newberry
"Snow, politics, orchards, love, death, and guilt figure in the experience of best friends in their coming-of-age in the Russia of perestroika. The Orchard is a great pleasure, a novel that reminds us of that intense time of life when it all mattered."
