Want To Escape? Fictional Books Recommendations

Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

“Owens here surveys the desolate marshlands of the North Carolina coast through the eyes of an abandoned child. And in her isolation that child make us open our own eyes to the secret wonders- and dangers- of her private world.”- The New York Times Book Review

American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins

American Dirt, a new novel by Jeanine Cummins, has been positioned as a breakout hit of the year. The story of a mother and son’s desperate attempt to flee Mexico for America, it arrives on a gust of rapturous and demented praise — anointed “The Grapes of Wrath” for our time, “required reading for all Americans.” -The New York Times

The Overstory: A Novel by Richard Powers

The Overstory, a novel about trees and people who understand them, is the eco-epic of the year and perhaps the decase. Unlike the Lorax, who spoke for the trees, Richard Powers prefers to let them do their own talking.”- Leanne Shapton, judge for the Man Booker Prize
