Ian McGuire recommends
The Borrowed Hills (2024)
Scott Preston
"The Borrowed Hills shows us the Lake District from the inside, from the viewpoint of those who struggle to make a living from the land and who, when the bad times come, are driven to extremity and violence in order to survive. It's a startlingly original addition to the literature of northern England."
The Ocean Above Me (2023)
Kevin Sites
"The Ocean Above Me is an intense and powerful novel about losing one's way and then finding it again in the unlikeliest of places. I found it moving, thought-provoking and gripping in equal measure."
The Last Karankawas (2022)
Kimberly Garza
"The Last Karankawas is a deft and moving portrait of ordinary lives lived in an extraordinary place. Kimberly Garza's writing is warm, beautifully observed, and filled with human drama. Like all really good fiction, it opens our eyes to new experiences and shows us things we don't already know."
