Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney recommends
The Vegan (2023)
Andrew Lipstein
"You will want to tear through this ingenious tale in one sitting, but I urge you to resist and wallow in the strange, hilarious, whip-smart world Andrew Lipstein has built. Exacting, upending and constantly surprising, I loved this novel."
Pineapple Street (2023)
Jenny Jackson
"In this vibrant and hilarious debut, Jenny Jackson has taken a familiar tale - siblings, family money, competing interests - and given it fresh life. What binds the book together so wonderfully is Jackson's keen understanding of the beauty and difficulty of belonging, of how our desires can clash with our inherited narrative and what happens to the people we love when we need to rewrite the story. Pineapple Street is riveting, timely, hugely entertaining and brimming with truth."
Vintage Contemporaries (2023)
Dan Kois
"Vintage Contemporaries is about many things--art, friendship, youth, desire, a very particular slice of New York City--but what makes this masterful debut sing is Dan Kois's dazzling excavation of the human heart and all its contradictions, mystery, and beauty. Smart, laugh-out-loud funny and consistently surprising, this novel is a gem."
