Happy #BookBirthday to a Library Journal Best Debut + a multi-starred, haunting story of guilt and blame.
CARNEGIE HILL by Jonathan Vatner
“Vatner’s charming, comically observant debut follows the intersecting lives of a number of the residents and employees of a pricey co-op on the Upper East Side of New York…. [I]t’s his consistently wry wit and obvious affection for his deluded, struggling characters that are this novel’s propelling forces, and which will win readers over with delight.”–Booklist, starred review
MACHINE by Susan Steinberg
“Heartbreaking, eerie, and acutely observant.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“What makes this tale so thrilling is Steinberg’s artistry with form; she fractures narrative into its fundamental parts. Steinberg writes prose with a poet’s sense of meter and line, and a velocity recalling the novels of Joan Didion. The result is a dizzying work that perfectly evokes the feeling of spinning out of control.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
