Andrew Miller recommends
Burntcoat (2021)
Sarah Hall
"Wonderful. Sarah Hall manages to infuse a whole novel with the intensity of one of her stories. The writing goes down smoking hot onto the page. Above all, it is the feeling of all this coming out of the writer's depths that makes it so compelling. This will be among the very best of pandemic books."
A Net for Small Fishes (2021)
Lucy Jago
"A fabulous book. Frankie and Anne's world is not just brilliantly evoked but brilliantly sustained. Lucy Jago doesn't make a single false step. And it's exciting!"
Archipelago (2012)
Monique Roffey
"Beautifully done... a brilliant piece of storytelling."
