Adam Foulds recommends

China Room (2021)
Sunjeev Sahota
"An intense drama of classic themes — love, family, survival, and betrayal — told with passion and precision in Sahota's economical, lyrical prose. China Room is a brilliant novel. I won't forget any of these characters."
thumb
The Bass Rock (2020)
Evie Wyld
"Amazingly good. The Bass Rock will fill the air around you with angry ghosts and you will be glad to be in their company."

The Heavens (2019)
Sandra Newman
"Unique and brilliant, I tore through The Heavens and I loved it. It is a house made of trapdoors, where dreams are real and reality a dream. Through this strange labyrinth of 21st century New York and Renaissance England, it is love which deftly, movingly, finds the way."
