Scott Smith recommends
The Toast (2018)
"The Toast is stupendous - as brief, urgent, and bracing as a punch to the face. It’s gripping, funny, and unrelentingly bleak (in the best possible way). Matt Marinovich has such a sinister and uncompromising sensibility that one can feel a little morally compromised for enjoying his work so much. If that’s the case, though, I must be a very bad person indeed, because I absolutely loved this book."
The Stranger Game (2018)
"The Stranger Game is a sharp-toothed commentary on the ways in which 'following' can foster a pretense of intimacy between strangers, and how the falsity of this intimacyits utter lack of substanceoften creates a perilous hunger for more: more access, more communion, more knowledge. It’s also a fun, moody, twisty thriller, with a sun-touched, West Coast vibe...as much Joan Didion as Patricia Highsmith."
