Praise for The Feral Detective
The Feral Detective is hilarious and terrifying and wrenching. Phoebe is one of the grandest, funniest heroes I’ve come upon in a long time.
Megan Abbott, author of Dare Me and The End of Everything
Praise for Rising Out of Hatred
I couldn’t put this book down. This is essential reading for our political moment. Eli Saslow is among the best nonfiction writers working today, and here he writes about a gifted young man trained to be a champion of hate who then encounters love, and hope, in the world he hated. This is a story about the long struggle of America’s racist history told through the battle over a single American soul.
David Fahrenthold, Pulitzer Prize winning political correspondent at The Washington Post

With her signature humor and compassion, A.M. Homes exposes the heart of an uneasy America in her new collection—exploring our attachments to each other through characters who aren’t quite who they hoped to become, though there is no one else they can be.
The Chicago Review of Books
Praise for Night of Miracles
Elizabeth Berg’s characters jump right off the page and into your heart.
