Sara Baume recommends
The Wren, the Wren (2023)
"Somehow both classic and thoroughly contemporary. Very few writers could capably achieve such a thing and I remain, as ever, in awe of Anne's talents."
Though the Bodies Fall (2023)
"I opened it up one evening and was instantly captivated... The atmosphere is haunting; the imagery so powerful that it gave me strange dreams. This novel is a little bit uncanny and a little bit archaic but also incredibly contemporary and prescient."
Prophet Song (2023)
"It was gripping and chilling, and terribly prescient - a novel with a darkly important message about this particular moment in time."
