Thrity Umrigar recommends
The Girl in the Garden (2011)
Kamala Nair
"An impressive debut."
Silent Hearts (2018)
Gwen Florio
"Gwen Florio paints a nuanced and heartbreaking portrait of two women, one American and the other Pakistani, and demonstrates how their plight is achingly similar, despite their obvious differences. By flipping the script, Florio not only shows us life in post-9/11 Afghanistan but also casts a dispassionate eye toward America, as seen by those who bear the brunt of its aggression."
The Collector's Apprentice (2018)
B A Shapiro
"I was engrossed in every twist and turn in this compulsively captivating page-turner, all the way until its astonishing denouement. Shapiro has done it again!"
Unmarriageable (2019)
Soniah Kamal
"Irreverent, witty, and imaginative . . . Austen herself would have enjoyed Kamal's deft retelling of her novel, while sipping a cup of chai."
