I am a fan of Haven Kimmel’s, and was excited to read her latest novel The Used World. It follows several women who live in a smallish Midwestern town, chronicling their adventures (or lack thereof) while showing them coming to terms with who they are. The imagery here is - as always with Kimmel - beautiful; every word is necessary, which is all too rare in books these days.

If you haven’t read any of Kimmel’s fiction, I would recommend Something Rising Light and Swift to give you a sense of what you’re getting into before you start The Used World. Her non-fiction and fiction are both incredibly well-written, but are very different from each other. If you like her fiction, you won’t be disappointed here.
