Simon Van Booy recommends
The Very White of Love (2018)
S C Worrall
"Simon Worrall's The Very White of Love is one of those books that after a few chapters, becomes as vital and immediate as real life; an elegant, heart-pounding narrative that bears all the hallmarks of great literature and classic Hollywood."
News of Our Loved Ones (2018)
Abigail DeWitt
"News of Our Loved Ones is beautifully written work, that untangles the fabric of family, and follows each thread through time, to where meaning is forged from chaos."
