Patrick deWitt recommends
Forest Of Fortune (2014)
"Beguiling, nimble, and wonderfully weird. Forest Of Fortune is an out-of-the-field gem."
Martin John (2015)
"Profane, strange, hilarious, and necessary, Martin John is a beguiling triumph."
The Wild Laughter (2020)
"A memorable, insightful portrait of a complex family in an equally complex economic and emotional situation. Caoilinn Hughes get the balance just right: the pathos is real but never heavy-handed; the humour is black but never mean-spirited. The Wild Laughter succeeds on all levels."
The Great Offshore Grounds (2020)
"The Great Offshore Grounds delivers on the promise Vanessa Veselka made with her excellent debut, Zazen. Large in scope and heart, Veselka skillfully illustrates human behaviors of every shade and iteration. She's a specialist, a keen interpreter of our demented society, and an enviable storyteller. I've been waiting long years for this novel. It was worth the wait."
