Daisy Johnson recommends
The Water Cure (2018)
Sophie Mackintosh
"Eerie, electric, beautiful. It rushes you through to the end on a tide of tension and closely held panic. I loved this book."
Muscle (2019)
Alan Trotter
"Muscle unfolds like a series of Russian Dolls, each more Beckettian, winding and wonderful than the one before. Compelling enough to read in one gulping go."
The Porpoise (2019)
Mark Haddon
"Mark Haddon cuts right down to the grittiness of humanity every time he writes. The Porpoise is a beautiful, unputdownable, ancient tangle with its own sweeping tides and dangerous depths."
Salt Slow (2019)
Julia Armfield
"Armfield is an enormous, gut-wrenching talent."
