Kate Walbert recommends

Sylvan Street (2010)
Deborah Schupack
"A work of pure magic... about money, class, and the daily deceptions among friends and neighbors, husbands and wives."

Arcadia (2012)
Lauren Groff
"Part Stone Diaries, part Lord of the Flies, part something out of a Shakespearean tragedy, Lauren Groff's Arcadia is so uniquely absorbing that you finish it as if waking from a dream. Groff is one of our most talented writers, and Arcadia one of the most revelatory, magical, and ambitious novels I've read in years."

The Dependents (2018)
Katharine Dion
"The Dependents is a big book, one that grapples with important questions through generations--the way we live now, the way we may have chosen to live then--and the consequences. Dion's intelligence and ambition truly shine through sentence after sentence."
