Scabby Queen (2020)
Kirstin Innes
"A hugely ambitious novel that fulfils the promise of Kirstin Innes' debut Fishnet and then some. You won't forget Clio Campbell, but Scabby Queen's punch also comes from the sophisticated, nuanced way Innes undermines simplistic biographical takes … Full of heart and dirt, fire and fury, Scabby Queen positively crackles with tension and drama throughout."
