In the Land of Men

If you’re a devotee of David Foster Wallace, you’ll devour this memoir with pleasure. If not, you may enjoy the cultural scavenger hunt and appreciate how much Adrienne Miller makes you stretch.


Hitting a Straight Lick with a Crooked Stick

On literary and ethnographic expeditions, Hurston packed a pistol along with her notepads. These stories share that same wild spirit – unnerving at times, they are always a thrill.


Perfect Little Children

Perfect Little Children is one of the most ingenious psychological thrillers I have ever read, and the ending is completely satisfying.


A Beautiful Crime
Bookreporter : A Beautiful Crime (February 01, 2020)

The setting is marvelous. Venice isn’t just a scenic background for the action of A Beautiful Crime. Its capricious tides and twisty, deceptive geography seem to mirror the characters’ secrets and intrigues.


Perfect Little Children

Readers will quickly turn the pages of Perfect Little Children to discover whether those things really are there.


Not So Pure and Simple

Hilariously necessary.


Little Gods
Publishers Weekly : Little Gods (January 14, 2020)

This is a beautiful, intensely moving debut.


The Gimmicks

The result is engrossing, but McCormick doesn't quite get the ratio right. Fewer gimmicks, ultimately, would have served The Gimmicks well.


Africaville

This is a penetrating, fresh look at the indomitable spirit of black pioneers and their descendants.


Anyone
Kirkus Reviews : Anyone (December 03, 2019)

An imaginative, time-fragmented thriller about the bitter and potentially deadly consequences of body-snatching.


Sudden Traveler

Slipping seamlessly between fantasy and reality, it is an ambitious, powerful and, at times, deeply unsettling book.


Nothing to See Here

It's the sweetness of this novel that will melt you, even when it ventures dangerously close to flaming schmaltz, and despite its somewhat predictable (but still satisfying) ending.


The Devil’s Due
Kirkus Reviews : The Devil's Due (November 01, 2019)

Loose-limbed, prodigiously inventive, plotted with infernal logic, and riotously implausible from beginning to end.


God Save the Queens

Iandoli's book is rigorous, insightful, and authoritative — but it's also deadly personal.


Your House Will Pay

Cha’s storytelling shows how fiction can delicately extract deeper revelations from daily headlines.


A Lush and Seething Hell

A Lush and Seething Hell in its entirety is liable to equally and cosmically frighten all who open it.


A Kingdom for a Stage

We leave Jetta and her cause in a more uncertain state than ever, providing the perfect set-up for an intense and rousing conclusion to a series with a stunning premise and really subtle handling of difficult topics. I eagerly anticipate the final installment.


Thirteen Doorways, Wolves Behind Them All

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