Amanda Eyre Ward recommends
Blank (2024)
Zibby Owens
"A witty romp, Blank is the perfect addition to book lovers' bedside tables. An insider's view of the publishing industry and a wise and beautiful celebration of love, Blank kept me happily reading all night and left me bereft when I reached the end of my journey with Owens's wise and fabulous heroine Pippa."
You're an Animal (2023)
Jardine Libaire
"Jardine Libaire writes with a dark and magical style that brings to mind the work of Denis Johnson and Mary Gaitskill. . . . Her novel You're an Animal is a rich and luminous story of love, yearning, motorcycles, and a cheetah named Slash. . . . Completely original, utterly unforgettable . . . I loved this book."
The Majority (2023)
Elizabeth L Silver
"A story of secrets, impossible choices, and how we negotiate the uneasy space between our personal and public lives. Like Curtis Sittenfeld's American Wife, The Majority transforms the life of a singular woman into a compelling narrative that illuminates the most important themes playing out in America today."
