Yara Rodrigues Fowler recommends
I See Buildings Fall Like Lightning (2024)
Keiran Goddard
"A very affecting novel about working class love, friendship and grief. Bound by kinship and place, Goddard's multiple narrators create a story that is truly communal, demonstrating our interconnectedness and bravely rejecting the idea that the novel form is built to tell the stories of individuals only."
Wandering Souls (2023)
Cecile Pin
"Wandering Souls is deeply moving and deeply generous. Pin writes about the Vietnamese diaspora in the UK - its past and its present - with love and care. I cried reading it."
Deep Down (2023)
Imogen West-Knights
"I read Deep Down in one go, staying up late to finish it. West-Knights takes the tradition of the British family novel - with all its resentment, over-drinking and passive aggression - and transcends it: Deep Down is funny, sad, tender and hopeful. A fantastic book."
