Ayelet Waldman recommends
Family Business (2006)
(Port Silva, book 9)
Janet LaPierre
"Another terrific Port Silva mystery, with a trademark intricate plot, fascinating characters, and above all, marvelous prose. She takes on complicated contemporary issues with aplomb."
Hiroshima in the Morning (2010)
Rahna Reiko Rizzuto
"This searing and redemptive memoir is an explosive account of motherhood reconstructed."
The Taste of Salt (2011)
Martha Southgate
"A haunting novel about the ways we hurt and are hurt by the people we love most in the world, and about how, despite that, we find solace in their love."
The Red Book (2012)
Deborah Copaken Kogan
"I gobbled up The Red Book in two days, ignoring my work, my family, my life, so immersed was I in the lives of the people Deborah Copaken Kogan has so masterfully brought to life. Kogan's eye is at once wry and empathetic, and the book is a delight."
The Stolen Child (2017)
Lisa Carey
"A piercing exploration of regret and desire, longing and love. It is a gorgeously written, inventive, and compelling novel."
Dodging and Burning (2018)
John Copenhaver
"Dodging and Burning is a beautifully rendered coming of age story, a compelling exploration of a young man's struggle with his sexual identity amid the evils of war, and an impeccably executed crime novel that keeps you guessing and ultimately strikes a deep and resounding emotional cord."
The Magnificent Esme Wells (2018)
Adrienne Sharp
"This lovely novel, alternately dark and funny, is a powerful examination of both the nature of love and the will to survive."
