Today's #MSWL !

Multi-character, multi-timeline, multi-theme literary works that feel like short story collections but tie together into a novel.
Stories must have scene arcs, not be merely vignettes.

Eg: OLIVE KITTERIDGE by Elizabeth Strout or THERE, THERE by Tommy Orange

Today's #MSWL item is VERY specific:

I want whip-smart absurdist OR speculative literary fiction that acts as satirical or hyperbolic commentary on the oddly accepted parts of culture and society.
Eg: Kevin Wilson's NOTHING TO SEE HERE or Jessamine Chan's SCHOOL FOR GOOD MOTHERS

My next #MSWL

Literary “Romance”—I want a deeply thematic & potentially twisted story about complexity of relationships/ love.

HEA ok but prefer not.

Lots of interiority but center around an external happening!

LGBTQ+ yes! But prefer when sexuality is not the main conflict

#MSWL time!

I'd love to see mysteries/thrillers (literary or upmarket) with deep, psychological interiority that shows voice and personality. Think Searcher by Tana French, or Birnam Wood by Eleanor Catton.
Extra interested if there's a faux/red-flag love interest involved.
