I’m working on a contemporary American novel syllabus for the fall semester. More details when it’s at least fully drafted, but in the meantime, I have a question.
There’s one slot that I’m not yet happy with; does anyone have a suggestion for an especially interesting/compelling/quirky/forward-looking novel by an American woman published after 2000? I have a couple of candidates, but nothing that seems perfect. Thoughts?
[Oh and yes, I’m aware that the last time I asked a question (about POS taggers) on this blog, I spent three months answering it. I’m aiming for that not to happen this time around.]

I may have mentioned this already, but I’m reading Oh Pure and Radiant Heart (2005?) by Lydia Millet right now. It satisfies.
Hi, Aaron. I haven’t read it yet, but will have a look. Thanks for the tip.
