Kate Walbert recommends
Jane of Hearts and Other Stories (2022)
Katharine Weber
"Katharine Weber's trademark intelligence and wit are on full, dazzling display in her not-to-be missed, career-spanning collection, . Secret family histories, childhood games turned dangerous, moments imbued with fierce, unexpected consequences, inform these compulsively readable, razor-sharp stories. A triumph."
Impersonation (2020)
Heidi Pitlor
"Heidi Pitlor has written a wonderfully rare thing: a comedy of manners set in the 21st century that brilliantly grapples with some of the more thorny issues of class, privilege, and parenting of our day. Smart, funny, and generous in spirit, Impersonation is an engaging meditation on who controls the narrative and why it matters. A terrific read that will have you hooked from page one."
The Latecomers (2018)
Helen Klein Ross
"A triumph of storytelling, The Latecomers is a brilliantly researched and masterly told chronicle of the decades and generations in one immigrant's journey-and the deeply guarded alliances and secrets kept along the way. Ross has written a novel brimming with historical resonance, a riveting read infused with subtle wit and great intelligence."
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."
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."
