Book Cover for: Vladimir, Julia May Jonas

Vladimir

Julia May Jonas
Chloe SchamaChloe Schama

I haven’t read a funnier book this year, nor one that galloped along at such a perfect clip. Jonas is also a playwright, and her sense of pace and timing are refined. If you haven’t picked up the novel yet, do so now. You will not regret it.

Women and Children First

Alina Grabowski

In less capable hands, such rapid shifts might have a disorienting effect, but the book spins an entrancing web, the stories channeling the spirit of Mary Gaitskill and subtly building to reveal more and more about the town’s inhabitants.

Flight

Lynn Steger Strong
Chloe SchamaChloe Schama

Flight is its own portrait of struggle and strife, and yet a smooth and utterly compelling read. Steger Strong has a raw and unflinching originality.
