What the World Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us (2009)
Laura van den Berg

Any Human Face (2010)
Charles Lambert

Arcadia (2012)
Lauren Groff
"Arcadia feels true, as do the characters who populate this extraordinary novel, which lingers on passing moments in time and highlights the importance of place in preserving not only our memories, but also ourselves."
Before Everything (2017)
Victoria Redel
"Victoria Redel bears witness to a remarkable group of women, effortlessly weaving back and forth through time, each thread revealing the cracks and secrets of their complex lives, while also drawing them closer. . . .
