Megan Hunter recommends
Drive your Plough over the Bones of the Dead (2018)
"I loved this wry, richly melancholic philosophical mystery. It's a compelling and endlessly thought-provoking novel, luminous with the strangeness of existance."
"I read it slowly, in a kind of reverie, wanting to savour every page A completely absorbing, luminous account of a woman inhabiting her life and creativity."
Miss Iceland (2020)
Auður Ava Ólafsdóttir
"A potent, atmospheric story of creative frustration and fulfilment. I loved the wry, tender voice of Ólafsdóttir's narrator. I'm now going to read all of her other novels."
The Appointment (2020)
"The Appointment is darkly hilarious, moving and original. Its vibrant, incisive voice surprises and enlivens the reader on every page."
