Julie Schumacher recommends
The History of a Difficult Child (2023)
Mihret Sibhat
"Selam, Mihret Sibhat's ferociously witty young narrator, depicts her family's religious and political struggles in Ethiopia in extraordinarily rich and original prose. The History of a Difficult Child is deeply moving as well as hilarious. This is a one-of-a-kind must-read debut."
Please Be Advised (2022)
Christine Sneed
"Attention, fans of The Office, 'Dilbert' readers, and survivors of corporate culture: Please Be Advised is for you. Christine Sneed has perfectly captured the peculiarities and foibles of the 9-5 cubicle world - from refrigerator thievery to conference room ghosts. This book is great fun."
Sirens & Muses (2022)
Antonia Angress
"Antonia Angress is so talented, and her depiction of young artists--with their egos and inspirations and ambitions--is unforgettably impressive. Read. This. Book."
