Adam Thirlwell recommends
Sea Monsters (2019)
"I love the way Chloe Aridjis creates her own worlds in prose, and I especially love how Sea Monsters has invented the world of adolescence and its reveries: violent and tender, logical and dreamlike a twenty-first century essay disguised as a nineteenth-century fable."
The Appointment (2020)
"The Appointment is a wonderful first novelat once savage and precise, hypercomical and furious. It has all the authority of true chutzpah."
