—USA Today

Best First Novel by an American Author

Idaho by Emily Ruskovich

“You know you’re in masterly hands here. [Emily] Ruskovich’s language is itself a consolation, as she subtly posits the troubling thought that only decency can save us… Ruskovich’s novel will remind many readers of the great Idaho novel, Marilynne Robinson’s Housekeeping…[A] wrenching and beautiful book.”

The New York Times Book Review

Best Paperback Original

The Unseeing by Anna Mazzola

—Library Journal
