Welcome to Rainy Day Books! This week we are buzzing about Gold Fame Citrus by Claire Vaye Watkins. In 2012, Claire Vaye Watkins's story collection, Battleborn, swept nearly every award for short fiction. Now this young writer, widely heralded as a once-in-a-generation talent, returns with a first novel that harnesses the sweeping vision and deep heart that made her debut so arresting to a love story set in a devastatingly imagined near future. You'll find this book and many other recommendations right inside our door!
Immensely moving, profoundly disquieting, and mind-blowingly original, GOLD FAME CITRUS explores the myths we believe about others and tell about ourselves, the double-edged power of our most cherished relationships, and the shape of hope in a precarious future that may be our own.
