Sarah Maria Griffin recommends
Her Dark Wings (2022)
Melinda Salisbury
"Salisbury's voice sings at the crossroads of classical and urgently modern . . . Her storytelling is tight and focused and moves at a breathless pace: as all good myth-making should . . . strange, elegant and chilling: I devoured it."
The Shadow Glass (2022)
Josh Winning
"The Shadow Glass is surprising, playful, and wholly its own. I've never read anything like it - it was a daring, refreshing read: a weird banger. I can't stop thinking about it: because it is a love song to a very particular kind of nostalgia, it feels both deeply familiar while also being entirely unique. I loved it."
Precious Catastrophe (2021)
(Perfectly Preventable Deaths, book 2)
Deirdre Sullivan
"Sullivan is a nutural successor to Angela Carter."
Promising Young Women (2018)
Caroline O'Donoghue
"Promising Young Women is a book of two worlds - a light, current London of brunch and cocktails, spiraling into a gothic internal world of obsession, manipulation and fear. O'Donoghue writes the body in a hugely transporting way: if you have never felt like Jane in your own life, it will be impossible to not feel like her as you read this book - her illness and want and stasis and depression. Promising Young Women is a gothic spiral that I couldn't quite hold onto the walls of: a descent I was willing to tumble down. I loved it."
