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 (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 (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."
The End We Start From (2017)
Megan Hunter
"I can't remember ever having read a novel quite as sparing or as daring as Megan Hunter's The End We Start From, or one that delivers so mighty an impact from such delicate materials. It is a moving, wistful and compelling debut."
