John Burnham Schwartz recommends
MacArthur Park (2021)
Judith Freeman
"Like Crossing to Safety, Wallace Stegner's classic novel of life-long friendship in all its richness and complexity, Judith Freeman's MacArthur Park invites us into the deepest, truest, most contradictory chambers of the intimate, difficult, and surprising bonds between three beautifully drawn characters across the decades. You might not always like these three, but you will love them, as I do--for who they once were, who they have become, and who they may yet still be."
Look at Me (2001)
Jennifer Egan
"Look at Me is original, bold, haunting in the range and depth of its psychological acuity. Egan is a thrilling, beautiful writer."
