Lynn Steger Strong recommends
The Little Clan (2018)
Iris Martin Cohen
"Beautifully and intelligently written, The Little Clan explores what it is to try to make art as a woman, what it is to love, and what it is to want. It's about the seductions of reading and of other people and about what is left when life turns out other than we thought."
The Upstairs House (2021)
"A little bit Shirley Jackson, Samantha Hunt, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, but also completely itself, The Upstairs House manages to turn the banal terrors of early motherhood, of womanhood, and daughterhood, and the ghosts that inevitably accompany them all, into a riveting page turner about trying to love in spite of the traumas that loving has wrought in the past."
