Daisy Johnson recommends
The Ministry of Time (2024)
Kaliane Bradley
"I haven't enjoyed a book this much for a very long time. It's wonderful, joyful, intelligent and hilarious. I underlined as I read and felt a strong sadness at finishing because I could not read it again for the first time."
The Vaster Wilds (2023)
Lauren Groff
"Groff is a mastermind, a masterpiece creator, an intoxicating magician. I wait with impatience for every book and I am always surprised and delighted.The Vaster Wilds feels like her bravest yet, hallucinatory, divine, beyond belief but also entirely human."
Our Wives Under the Sea (2022)
Julia Armfield
"Beautiful, otherworldly, like floating through water with your eyes open."
