I liked A Visit From the Goon Squad, Tree of Smoke, The Echo Maker, and, for sheer fun, The Goldfinch. Aside from the last, which I thought was a blast, I wouldn't call these "strong" recommendations. The Johnson in particular is probably not as good as some of his earlier work, such as Angels or Jesus' Son. Maybe The Yiddish Policemen's Union. Actually, I don't really read all that much recent fiction either.
