Simon Van Booy recommends
The Voids (2022)
Ryan O'Connor
"It is rare to discover a book that is simultaneously beautiful and devastating, where characters are frightening to behold but also worthy of compassion."
The Stars Are Not Yet Bells (2022)
Hannah Lillith Assadi
"A rich, mesmerizing novel, in which waves of overlapping memory erode the landscape of a woman's life until only feeling remains - both in the story and in the reader."
You Feel It Just Below the Ribs (2021)
Jeffrey Cranor and Janina Matthewson
"This cleverly structured puzzle of a book is both tense intellectual thriller and elegant dystopian fantasy, blending fiction and history with terrifying clarity and haunting realism."
