This is a fascinating and beautiful work of nonfiction. Dicky Conant spent twenty years solo canoeing long distances along America's rivers and canals, making indelible impressions on people he met along the way. Then, in 2014, he disappeared while en-route from Canada to Florida along the east coast. Journalist Ben McGrath uses Conant's journals to piece together the story of his unconventional, troubled, and beautiful life. I was riveted. ~ Reviewed by Rachel Person

What a weird and wild and brilliant read. This ambitious and thoughtful novel follows Aviva - an indie musician on the rise, desperate to be pregnant, deeply skeptical of the fertility industry, and obsessed with the music and early death of Amy Winehouse. The experimental form (the book is structured around the protagonist's menstrual cycles) supports a deeply entertaining read. ~ Reviewed by Rachel Person
