The House of Broken Bricks (2024)

"Shocking and powerful, it took me into a new experience. . . This is the best kind of story telling - characters I genuinely care about, and a narrative that demands to be followed."

French Braid (2022)
Anne Tyler
"A faultless novel, effortlessly profound. I read it in two sittings, totally immersed. The problem now is what to read next..."
