Audrey Magee recommends
Aednan (2024)
Linnea Axelsson
"Mesmerising. A beautiful, poetic weaving of language, character and place that carried me into the intimate interior of a single family in northern Sweden struggling with its unwanted inheritance of deracination and colonisation. Evocative and heart-breaking."
Though the Bodies Fall (2023)
Noel O'Regan
"Noel O'Regan writes beautifully. Though the Bodies Fall is a beautiful book."
