Free Food for Millionaires (2007)

Good to a Fault (2008)
Marina Endicott
"One of those novels you want to tell people about. It's unpretentious and affecting, with characters to remember and themes that linger and resound."

Wayward Saints (2012)
Suzzy Roche
"As pure, as funny, as original as Roche's music... I am telling everyone to read this book."
thumb
The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley (2017)
Hannah Tinti
"What Hannah Tinti knows about fathers, daughters and time could, as they say, fill a book - and truly does. The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley is bold, exciting, and original."
thumb
Give Me Your Hand (2018)
Megan Abbott
"While Megan Abbott's magnetic new novel mines themes of ambition, competition, excellence, and friendship, what perhaps struck me the most was its exploration of the long, undeterrable reach of memory. Give Me Your Hand is darkly effective, uneasy-making, and beautifully, absorbingly written."

If Only (2018)
Jennifer Gilmore
"Gripping and shiveringly beautiful; a true achievement."
