Laird Hunt recommends
Library for the War-Wounded (2024)
Monika Helfer
"A masterclass in literary compression. In just a short span of pages, Helfer brings a whole world of wonder, loss and deep, deep longing to indelible life. How lucky we are that her work is finally available in English."
Prophet Song (2023)
Paul Lynch
"Paul Lynch is a writer of great vision and power and Prophet Song is his best novel yet."
Lost Believers (2023)
Irina Zhorov
"This hard, beautiful, highly moving novel seems carved straight out of the Siberian landscape it so vividly describes. Whether she is evoking the mountains and woods of the legendary taiga or Moscow in the 1970s, Zhorov writes with vision and clarity. Galina and Agafia and the whole lost world they inhabit come wonderfully alive."
