Madeline Stevens recommends
The Unsuitable (2020)
"The Unsuitable is vivid, bloody, and above all, wholly singular. It is impossible to not feel for Iseult as she struggles for a glimmer of independence that both the living and dead are hellbent on smudging out. With this debut, Molly Pohlig establishes herself as a startling force."
Last Call on Decatur Street (2020)
Iris Martin Cohen
"Sexy, smart and completely engrossing, Last Call on Decatur Street is the epic story of one woman's all-night journey into adulthood. This is on one level a never-ending drunken party, on another a mediation on class, race, and friendship, but, above all, Cohen has written a beautiful and complex love letter to New Orleans."
Daughters of the Wild (2020)
"Daughters of the Wild is a novel about history, our connection to the Earth, and above all, mother's intuition. This is an engrossing, startling debut and Joanie is a force of nature."
