From the longlist, some of my favorite nominees:
The Lonely Polygamist by Brady Udall (W.W. Norton)
Under the Poppy by Kathe Koja (Small Beer Press)
Wingshooters by Nina Revoyr (Akashic)
(Sponsored by Shelf Awareness & Melville House)
Lists like this remind me that, while I read a lot, there’s still so freakin’ much great stuff I haven’t gotten to.
