Ron

The Poison Flood by Jordan Farmer

The story of a ghostwriter living a reclusive life on the fringes of a small West Virginia mountain community blighted by economic collapse and opioid abuse. Any flaws within the story itself are more than compensated for by the strength of Farmer's writing, be it through character development, describing the natural environment or observations made about the human condition. Part love story, and an exploration of themes of addiction and environmental corporate malfeasance, this is a novel that might be about redemption to some readers, poetic proof of hopelessness for others.

Blackwood by Michael Farris Smith

Literary fiction about a small town artist whose life has been shaped by tragedy, this short tale morphs into a sort of timeless gothic horror tale. Just that vague sentence already seems like too much of a spoiler: this is a book best gone into blindly, so that its many twists and turns can wash over you with shock and incomprehension. Oxford, Mississippi based author Michael Farris Smith, over the course of five books, is proving himself to be a modern day Faulkner, with this meditation on evil and the darkness of the human heart.

Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982 by Cho Nam-Joo

A short, brutal look at everyday misogyny in South Korea. I'd like to think "it's not like that here"  but fear my gender might have rendered me every bit as oblivious as the men portrayed in this incendiary novel. But there’s no excuse for women to be treated this way, anywhere.
