Annie Hartnett recommends
Eli Harpo's Adventure to the Afterlife (2024)
Eric Schlich
"Eli Harpo's Adventure to the Afterlife is an exuberant, rich, lively, and thoroughly entertaining novel, and I adored it. Eric Schlich is a wonderful writer and you'll admire his prose, but you'll love the novel most for its big honkin' heart."
Cleaner (2023)
Brandi Wells
"Brandi Wells has created a biting, witty, pitch-perfect novel about one woman's desire to connect with her office co-workers - the only problem is, she cleans the office during the night and they work during the day. Cleaner is funny, slyly moving, and totally weirdly wonderful, and Brandi Wells is a gloriously bold writer. I adored it."
The Gospel of Orla (2023)
Eoghan Walls
"A melancholic, funny, and magical coming-of-age story, The Gospel of Orla is glorious, wise, and totally weird. I loved it."
