Roxane Gay called this collection "outstanding" and "nearly flawless," so that should tell you something.  The writing is beautiful, and each story so emotionally intense I had to take breaks while reading. Quade's strong and scrappy characters face their troubled lives with heart and tenacity in rural New Mexico.

A post-apocalyptic dream song sung in a labyrinth, this is another brilliant novel from Davis. The prose is so beautiful and the images so rich that the reader is drawn in so that "Reader" becomes as much of a character as the Botanist, the Ice Man & the Archivist. A mind trip in the best possible way.

This has been one of my favorite books for over half my life. In a world that feels increasingly apocalyptic, this one -- with its fond-of-Earth angel and demon duo, witches and witch-hunters, motorcycle-riding Horsepersons, adorable hellhounds, and the occasional rain of fish -- is the funniest, most uplifting and irreverent apocalypse story you're going to find. And there's a tv show out now, if you like that sort of thing.

An atmospheric and complex character drama, told through a series of distinct and compelling perspectives. The chapters read like interconnected short stories following the recent disappearance of two young girls, and the undercurrent of social and racial tensions on the remote Russian peninsula of Kamchatka.
