Anna felt malice wrap around her, sharp as an itchy sweater now, that awful grating feeling, chalk on her fingers, eyebrow hairs being tweezed too quickly, the music they play when you‘re on hold for customer support.

Being single is like playing the lottery. Most of the time all you‘re left with from that trip to the convenience store is a bag of chips and a six-pack. But then there‘s always the chance. There‘s always the chance, however slim, that with one piece of paper you could win it all.

Jennifer Thorne skewers all-too-familiar family dynamics in this sly, wickedly funny vacation-Gothic. Beautifully unhinged and deeply satisfying, Diavola is a sharp twist on the classic haunted house story, exploring loneliness, belonging, and the seemingly inescapable bonds of family mythology.

“Like Orwell‘s 1984 and Atwood‘s The Handmaid‘s Tale, Adjei-Brenyah‘s book presents a dystopian vision so upsetting and illuminating that it should permanently shift our understanding of who we are and what we‘re capable of doing…So raw and tragic and primal is Chain-Gang All-Stars that despite its futuristic elements, it has the patina of some timeworn epic…Shockingly intimate and moving.”

“This is a propulsive read that tackles myriad attitudes toward sex work, from condemnation to celebration, through a distinctly feminist lens. Accompanying the partying with perceptive social commentary, Saintclare refuses to romanticize the gritty details of sugaring-inviting the reader into a whirlwind of champagne, sex, and money that is at times claustrophobic, scary, and toxic.“

“Where You End is haunting, suspenseful and beautifully written—a modern-day gothic that explores the peculiar bond between twin sisters and the twisted power of cults; the mysteries of memory and the ineluctable pull of the past. It unnerves and beguiles in ways reminiscent of Donna Tartt‘s The Secret History and David Lynch‘s “Twin Peaks”—but it‘s a true original.”
