Colin Barrett
"Vivid, controlled, very funny, and very moving - Barrett has the kind of pure writing chops that are vanishingly rare."

Kala (2023)
Colin Walsh
"Now here's a truly ambitious debut novel that purrs with narrative confidence - hugely engaging and thoroughly addictive."
thumb
Shy (2023)
Max Porter
"A troubled boy's psyche is presented in a shattered mosaic that contains within it the hope of new forms and new beginnings - this is a beautiful and haunting book, and it captures with a great artistry the resonance and rhythms of its era."
