Monica Ali recommends
Choice (2024)
Neel Mukherjee
"Choice burns brightly with fierce intelligence, with wisdom and compassion, and achieves what so few novels even attempt: it makes the reader think deeply about how we've come to live this way, at what cost, and about those who pay the greatest price."
Library for the War-Wounded (2024)
Monika Helfer
"Beautiful and heartbreaking, and readers will fall in love with Maria. I absolutely loved it."
Lost on Me (2023)
Veronica Raimo
"I fell head over heels in love with Lost on Me. What a thrillingly original voice! Raimo writes with a tender brutality that is simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking."
