Fiction from Arlidge, Brown, Faulks, Gowda, Guez, Lee, Oates, and White, Williams, & Willig | Xpress Reviews


Another solid read from Arlidge; a beautiful and unusual book about familial love; Faulks’s new novel ends on a note of poignancy; a quick-paced and suspenseful story; Oates’s impossible loved story is ultimately heartbreaking; engaging, complex characters and an intriguingly twisty plot
