Published: Flatiron Books - October 6th, 2015

What does Leo Tolstoy have to do with Orange is the New Black? Or Sylvia Plath with The Bachelor? Maris Kreizman's juxtapositions of great literature with pop culture icons are funny and clever, but also intuitively true on a deeper level the stories told through "high" and "low" culture may not be that different at their core. A great gift for the film, TV, and book lovers on your list.

One of the best and most unique near-future dystopias I've read. "I" (short for Inez) is an unforgettable narrator her voice is raw, piercing and utterly engaging, evolving from her initial desensitized deadpan as she learns to care for baby Ani, the unexpected result of a job gone awry. Deeply human speculative fiction, perfect for fans of Margaret Atwood.

Through smart, funny, irreverent, and thoughtful diary entries, Julavits turns the mundane into mini meditations on self, art, family, and the passing of time (and occasionally reality TV and Maine yard sale politics). I was constantly thinking yes, exactly that or laughing out loud while reading.

Published: Riverhead Books - February 4th, 2014

The line between the supernatural and the imagined becomes increasingly unclear in this surreal, Gothic coming of age story that grapples with mental illness, identity, loss, and institutional racism. Gorgeous poetic prose and an overwhelmingly eerie, haunting atmosphere sucked me in and made this book stick with me long after I finished reading.

Fantastically creepy and strange.

Perfect for fans of Lemony Snicket, Neil Gaiman and Roald Dahl.
