C Pam Zhang recommends
Memory Piece (2024)
Lisa Ko
"A group portrait of three women who wrest meaning from a world that is closing down around them, Memory Piece is bright with defiance, intelligence, and stubborn love. To spend time with these characters is a gift."
Headshot (2024)
Rita Bullwinkel
"Headshot is an extraordinary act of literary telepathy. With prose as muscular and gleaming as a body in motion, Bullwinkel drops readers into that roaring, incandescent universe that is young womanhood. This is a book with its own pulse."
Prophet (2023)
Sin Blaché and Helen Macdonald
"Prophet is a crackling, shape-shifting romp with big ideas and a bigger heart. Blache and Macdonald take a no-holds-barred approach to manifesting the ways in which individual desires are exploited by the systems we live under, and ask the necessary question of whether escape from that cycle is possible. This is a display of sheer inventiveness, and a delight."
