Jonathan Safran Foer recommends
The Only Good Thing Anyone Has Ever Done
The Only Good Thing Anyone Has Ever Done (2002)
Sandra Newman
"Sandra Newman has an amazingly original way of thinking. The Only Good Thing Anyone Has Ever Done is often hysterically funny, profoundly strange, and unbearably beautiful. Often all at once."
It's All Right Now
It's All Right Now (2005)
Charles Chadwick
"This novel is huge - in size (obviously), ambition, intelligence and heart. "
Zoology (2007)
Ben Dolnick
"Beautiful and haunting."
Beautiful Children
Beautiful Children (2008)
Charles Bock
"Beautiful Children careens from the seedy to the beautiful, the domestic to the epic, all with huge and exacting heart."
All Fall Down
All Fall Down (2009)
Mary Caponegro
"Mary Caponegro is one of the most imaginative, daring, serious and playful writers alive. All Fall Down is her best book yet."

36 Arguments for the Existence of God (2010)
Rebecca Goldstein
"A hilarious novel about people's existential agonies, a page-turner about the intellectual mysteries that obsess them... deeply moving and a joy to read."

The Finkler Question (2010)
Howard Jacobson
"A real giant, a great, great writer."

Someday This Will Be Funny (2011)
Lynne Tillman
"Lynne Tillman has always been a hero of mine - not because I 'admire' her writing, (although I do, very, very much), but beacause I feel it. Imagine driving alone at night. You turn on the radio and hear a song that seems to say it all. That's how I feel..."

Among the Ten Thousand Things (2015)
Julia Pierpont
"This book is among the funniest, and most emotionally honest, I've read in a long time."
