Naomi Alderman recommends
So We Look to the Sky (2021)
Misumi Kubo
"Wonderful . . . Has both the sensuous power and the humor of a dream. . . . . Reminiscent of Han Kang's The Vegetarian."
Sea of Tranquility (2022)
Emily St. John Mandel
"It is heaven to be immersed in the waters of St John Mandel's imagination, she is always able to see past the present moment to the futures it contains and the past that informed it. Her perspective is so wise, so graceful, so rich and - despite everything - comforting. I loved Sea of Tranquility."
