Jim Crace recommends

Laura Blundy (2000)
Julie Myerson
"Dark, sexy and insolent. I hope to be startled and challenged by novels. Myerson more than obliges."

The Death of Vishnu (2001)
Manil Suri
"Manil Suri's 'The Death of Vishnu' finds the universe in a block of flats; it is tender, caustic, witty and inspired."
Safelight
Safelight (2004)
Shannon Burke
"... provoking and disturbing... a work of nerveless intelligence, disarming tenderness and hard-won optimism."

Electricity (2006)
Ray Robinson
"Ray Robinson's Electricity is a thorny, uncompromising novel, with attitude."
Mary Modern
Mary Modern (2007)
Camille DeAngelis
"Engrossing, incessantly surprising, and extraordinarily touching."

The Outside Lands (2016)
Hannah Kohler
"Gloriously well-written and deeply imagined."

What We Didn't Say (2016)
Rory Dunlop
"A touching, even-handed and thoroughly engaging tale of love, jealously and fatherhood."
