Emma Straub recommends
The Anatomy of Dreams (2014)
Chloe Benjamin
"Chloe Benjamin's ambitious debut novel matches the subtle surrealism of a dream with the underpinnings of a thriller. Back and forth in time like so many memories coming to light at once, Benjamin has produced a wholly original tale."
Ana of California (2015)
Andi Teran
"Vivid and fully realized. Ana herself is a complicated delight."
Rich and Pretty (2016)
Rumaan Alam
"Impossible to resist."
Woman No. 17 (2017)
Edan Lepucki
"Edan Lepucki is the very best kind of writer: simultaneously generous and precise. I am long been an admirer of her prose, but this book---this book, this massive, brilliant book---is a four alarm fire, the ambitious and rich introduction that a writer of her caliber deserves."
The Heirs (2017)
Susan Rieger
"Susan Rieger is thrillingly erudite and compulsively readable, a satisfying combination hard to find in any section of the bookstore. The Heirs is an absorbing page-turner, full of sex and secrets, and I loved getting to know the entire Falkes clan."
