Thirteen Doorways, Wolves Behind Them All

It's certainly evident that Ruby is a skilled hand at creating an evocative narrative tapestry.


The Yellow House

Out of the materials of memory and archival history, Broom's memoir solidly reconstructs what the forces of nature and institutionalized racism succeeded in knocking down.


The Education of an Idealist

At times, this memoir feels a mile wide and inch deep. But when she does really dig down, you get a better sense of who Power is — a flawed, complicated and complex human being like the rest of us.


Don't You Forget About Me

And that's what you'll find reading Don't You Forget About Me -- a page-turner about a heroine with a laugh-out-loud voice, an endearing romance, and, as the British say, lashings of drama.


The Divers' Game

If dystopian stories serve as thought experiments, the best ones also function as heart experiments. And with The Divers' Game, Jesse Ball has unsettlingly accomplished both.


Triangulum

Magnificently disorienting and meticulously constructed, Triangulum couples an urgent subtext with an unceasing sense of mystery. This is a thought-provoking dream of a novel, situated within thought-provoking contexts both fictional and historical.


The Divers' Game

The novel’s depiction of life in this dystopian world is eerie and suffused with symbolic weight.


The Divers' Game

Readers who appreciate Ball’s keen, melancholic, and often sadly satirical view of human society will likely appreciate this timely assessment of where division might take us and how it affects the generations that come after us.


The Last Widow

Slaughter's books are massively exciting reads for me. Her plots are always so tightly planned and executed that even the most unbelievable points become spectacularly real in her deft hands.


America Was Hard to Find

Uneven and at times frustratingly enigmatic but impressively ambitious and extremely well-written.


Sherwood

All things said, this was a delightful gender-flipped origin story, and I loved it very much. (Probably tied with No Good Deed as my favorite modern Robin Hood retelling.) Absolutely recommended.


The Refugees

In The Refugees Nguyen contributes to America’s narrative plentitude by adding to our collective story lives we must see if we’re ever to satisfy those ghosts.
