Susie Yang recommends
Pineapple Street (2023)
"Pineapple Street might be the Edith Wharton novel for our times... Wise, funny, tender, and utterly relatable."
The House in the Pines (2023)
"The House in the Pines unfolds like a magic show. Atmospheric, twisty, and skillfully wrought - this was an utterly engrossing reading experience. I wish I could go back and experience it again for the first time."
When We Fell Apart (2022)
"Melancholic, atmospheric, and consistently surprising. Like Norwegian Wood, there is a minor key running through this love story played out on the frenetic and lonely streets of Seoul."
Peach Blossom Spring (2022)
"Expansive, atmospheric, and affecting. Peach Blossom Spring shows just how much the human heart can hold, and it left me breathless."
The End of Getting Lost (2022)
"The End of Getting Lost is atmospheric, lyrical, filled with layered insights into the complexities of marriage and thwarted ambition. I couldn't look away from Duncan and Gina's story."
Tell Me How to Be (2021)
"A love letter to R&B, youth, and the unforgettable agonies of one's first love...I will read everything Patel writes from here on."
The Last Thing He Told Me (2021)
"What starts as an intimate meditation on found families deftly turns into a heart-pounding mystery reminiscent of the best true crime stories. But both work so beautifully in this gripping, perfectly-paced novel. I dare you to stop reading."
