Doug Johnstone recommends

Distance (2008)
Ewan Morrison
"Distance is a remarkable, penetrating look at the nature of love, the psychology of sex and the role of delusion and fantasy in relationships... Swung was an amazing debut, Distance is considerably better, and Morrison is infuriatingly talented."

The Healing of Luther Grove (2012)
Barry Gornell
"Dripping with Gothic tension...a fantastic, highly accomplished debut."
