On the Rooftop

The themes of racism, family, and Black lives could make Sexton’s latest a read-alike for the novels of Jacqueline Woodson. A good addition to any public library’s fiction collection.

Everybody Thought We Were Crazy: Dennis Hopper, Brooke Hayward, and 1960s Los Angeles

Rozzo documents a roller-coaster ride of big ideas, big failures, lasting successes, and lost projects. Recommended for anyone interested in the culture of the 1960s.

Chouette

Balancing parabolic storytelling with eloquent humanism isn’t an easy undertaking, but Oshetsky’s concise debut understood the task, and it soars.

Talk to Me

Against a backdrop of lurid news stories of chimps living with humans, where things go horribly wrong, this novel makes a visceral kind of sense and raises uncomfortable issues of human relationships with other species. Highly recommended.

The story of unwed Irish mothers losing their babies to forced adoptions is similar to books and films like Philomena, but Freud’s (Mr. Mac and Me) telling is fresh and moving. The mystery of whether the three women will ever reconnect gives the novel urgency.
