Candice Carty-Williams recommends
The Library Thief (2024)
Kuchenga Shenjé
"A tantalising read that swells with secrecy and intrigue. It's hard to believe that Kuchenga Shenje writes of the past, and not of the present. A beautifully and skilfully written debut."
Small Worlds (2023)
Caleb Azumah Nelson
"A novel that feels as intimate as it does expansive; Caleb Azumah Nelson has given to us a love story that goes beyond two people. Instead, there are no bounds to his exploration of exactly what the heart can feel. Beautiful, unforgettable and all-consuming."
The Mess We're In (2023)
Annie Macmanus
"A writer whose understanding and capturing of human nature comes as easily to her as breathing."
