Christine Schutt recommends
Wait Till You See Me Dance (2017)
Deb Olin Unferth
"Wait Till You See Me Dance delivers on the promise of surprise in its title: Thirty-nine tap-dance sharp, hilarious stories take up people with hearts askew and right them. Disgruntled mothers, daughters, adjunct professors, speak in a voice 'with a tarp of sad earnestness' so as to win over the reader every time."
Disappearing Earth (2019)
Julia Phillips
"Julia Phillips’s novel is vividly real, but it reads at times like a suspenseful fairy tale. Here are portraits of different women with a shared yearning for autonomy, in a land inhospitable to it. Here, too, is a story in which, against all odds, they do not give up hope. Disappearing Earth is a brave, affecting accomplishment."
