Brady Udall recommends
Don't Say We Didn't Warn You (2022)
Ariel Delgado Dixon
"Ariel Delgado Dixon is a writer of preternatural ability, and her first novel is a powerful expression of it. Dixon's work shines a stark light on this new and dangerous strange world in which we find ourselves and does so with such insight, such grace. Dixon is a once-in-a-generation talent."
The Roxy Letters (2020)
Mary Pauline Lowry
"The enormously talented Mary Pauline Lowry has given us a wonderful and compelling contradiction, a novel at once wicked and extravagant and vulnerable and pure. For comedy, for sheer joyous energy and deadly charm, you cannot do better than The Roxy Letters."
Rift (2009)
Todd Robert Petersen
"A funny and tough-minded account of a place where family, faith, and community still come first."
