Megan Hunter recommends
Cat Brushing (2022)
Jane Campbell
"I loved these fresh, wry, strange stories; by turns moving and unnerving, they disturb expectations of the longings, loves and ambitions of older women."
Our Wives Under the Sea (2022)
Julia Armfield
"Delicate and horrifying, Our Wives Under The Sea is a darkly brilliant novel that submerges the reader's imagination in the depths of the unknown."
Maps of Our Spectacular Bodies (2022)
Maddie Mortimer
"Maps of Our Spectacular Bodies is a beautiful novel about death that feels completely alive, pulsing with tenderness and wit."
