Meg Mason recommends
The Truth About Her (2021)
Jacqueline Maley
"Read the first sentence of Jacqueline Maley's debut novel, and you will be in it until the end. Electrifying, deeply unsettling and so, so satisfying. And, if you've ever tried to manage the sharp end of a career with the blunt demands of parenthood, fiercely recognisable."
Last Resort (2022)
Andrew Lipstein
"If Less by Andrew Sean Greer left a hole in your life, good news: Last Resort will fill it. Fast and funny, it feels like a backstage pass to the book world."
A Very Nice Girl (2022)
Imogen Crimp
"Tender, devastating, witty. And deeply true. Sweetbitter meets Normal People."
The Exhibitionist (2022)
Charlotte Mendelson
"It takes the most ferocious intelligence, skill, and a deep reservoir of sadness to write a novel as funny as this. I adored it."
