Gatwood beautifully describes the tragedy that comes with female adolescence and sexuality in the most raw and immersing fashion. Incredible poet, incredible woman- an all time favorite. Each word spoke to me on a level that I didn’t even know words were capable of reaching. Life of the Party is a page-turner for sure and is something I will forever hold close to my heart.

Not everything is Sisyphean. No one ever wants to imagine themselves as the boulder.” Hanif’s words have stuck with me since I first heard them, and they keep summoning me back. They convict and inspire as they weave magic and music and messy relationships into something that feels like life but is also more. If you’re not reading Hanif you are missing out.

A beautifully baffling book about the peripatetic wanderings of your own mind through the hotels, hallways, & postcards of the protagonists, or about the instability hiding in every apparently solid building, or maybe even how you don’t know an event is significant until some disconnected and celestial phenomenon illuminates it.

In 2019's most ambitious novel Ellmann puts us in the mind of one of literature's most neglected characters; an average woman and mother doing her best in a world that respects neither women nor mothers. Rambunctiously political, tenderly personal, and profoundly humanist, Ellmann's simple respect for her protagonist's thoughts, feelings, faults, & successes is revolutionary. And on top of everything else in this towering achievement of a novel, you'll find yourself desperately rooting for a mountain lion.
