Christopher Tilghman recommends
The Twelve-Mile Straight (2017)
Eleanor Henderson
"An intricate and fascinating tale of maternity and paternity, of race and blood, of two young women doing what they must do to survive. The Twelve-Mile Straight portrays events along a tiny sliver of Depression-era Georgia, but as the revelations mount this place truly becomes an everywhere. This is brave material, confronted with unblinking honesty and woven with intelligence and grace."
Away (2007)
Amy Bloom
"Amy Bloom's work has always revolved around what love and desire can make us do. In Away, she paints filial love on an immense geographic and historical canvas. The result, a story of loss and survival, is gripping."
