Gone to the Wolves (2023)
John Wray
"Riveting and electric. Wray's brilliant new novel is both a page-turner and an elegant meditation on how far we'd go for our allegiances."
Notes on Your Sudden Disappearance (2022)
Alison Espach
"Espach is an immensely talented writer, and her prose unfolds with a devastating lightness of touch. This novel is deeply moving, always excellent, and often unexpectedly funny."
The Verifiers (2022)
Jane Pek
"This book is exhilaratingly well-written. I loved it so much that I didn't want it to end."
