'Swell' by Jill Eisenstadt

Jill Eisenstadt made a splash in the literary world in the Eighties with her debut From Rockaway, then followed it up with a book of short stories in 1991, Kiss Out. Since then, sadly, no books have emerged from the outer-borough native. Now, in 2017, she's returned to the fiction world, revisiting her old stomping grounds – Rockaway Beach post-9/11, pre-Hurricane Sandy –  in this funny novel perfect for weekend-getaway reading. Don't call it a comeback – call it the literary comeback of the year.
