Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney recommends
All Grown Up (2017)
Jami Attenberg
"This novel is beautiful and brutal, intelligent and funny, frank and sexy."
If We Were Villains (2017)
M L Rio
"Expertly plotted, beautifully written, If We Were Villains will keep you riveted through its final, electrifying moments."
Sycamore (2017)
Bryn Chancellor
"In this masterful performance, Bryn Chancellor explores the loss around which an entire community has calcified with humanity and wisdom. Chancellor digs deep in these pages, unearthing broken hearts, secrets, betrayals, passion and - most impressively - grace. What a joy to find a book that is both propulsive and perfectly composed."
Our Little Racket (2017)
Angelica Baker
"Working in the vein of Wharton, Cheever and Yates, but with a voice and vision wholly her own, Angelica Baker has crafted a timely and powerful exploration of greed and hubris...Clear and commanding prose... Baker is wildly talented and this debut is her gorgeous opening note."
Spoonbenders (2017)
Daryl Gregory
"Spoonbenders is hilarious, heartfelt and brimming with humanity."
When Katie Met Cassidy (2018)
Camille Perri
"Tender, sexy as hell and laugh out loud funny."
The Shortest Way Home (2018)
Miriam Parker
"It's nearly impossible to describe this wonderful debut without summoning the language of wine country because Miriam Parker has infused every page with an appreciation for the alchemy of character and place that can transform a cluster of grapes into a beautiful glass of wine. She turns the same keen eye on matters of the heart--exploring how and where and with whom we find happiness, declare a home--with spectacular results."
