Review: Molly Dektar's The Ash Family

I love many genres of books, but debuts are the ones probably closest to my heart. They have a way of being raw and true that is slightly different from later works.

Molly Dektar’s The Ash Family is one of my favorite debuts of the year. It’s about cult living, family, freedom, and understanding self. It’s unsettling, but it’s also inspiring in ways. It was my pleasure to be able to review it for the Chicago Review of Books.
