Emily Barr recommends

The Family Tree (2004)
Carole Cadwalladr
"Carole Cadwalladr has written a wonderful novel that is hilarious and tragic at the same time. "
Fashion Victim
Fashion Victim (2005)
(Annie Anderson, book 1)
Sam Baker
"Very funny, great escapism, and offering a genuinely fascinating insight into the world of fashion, but with murders thrown in to make it exciting. I really loved it!"

What I Did (2011)
Christopher Wakling
"Hugely impressive, gripping, funny and thought provoking."

All the Little Children (2017)
Jo Furniss
"All the Little Children is one of those books that grips you from the start and never lets go. I was thinking about it long after I’d finished reading. It’s punchy, relevant, and horribly plausible, with a brilliant, flawed, brave narrator. The skillful interweaving of the frustrations of motherhood and the apocalypse makes this different from anything I’ve ever read before. And when I finished it I was crying on a train, and I didn’t care who saw me."
