Sarah Moss recommends
Orbital (2023)
Samantha Harvey
"I admire Orbital even more than the rest of Harvey's work... I don't think I've read anything else with such love for its characters and such clarity about the state of the planet, and I was deeply grateful for the novel's refusal of despair or cynicism."
The Weeds (2023)
Katy Simpson Smith
"A beautiful, strange, and compelling novel. I liked it for its playfulness about history, for its embrace of bodies in place, for its sense of doom and weirdness at loose in the world. I kept wanting my friends to read it so we could talk about it."
Haven (2022)
Emma Donoghue
"Haven is a beautiful and timely novel about isolation, passion and the conflict between obedience and self-preservation. The island setting and the characters stayed with me long after I finished reading."
Hearts and Bones (2022)
Niamh Mulvey
"These stories are vivid, memorable and beautifully crafted. I was delighted to discover Niamh Mulvey's work."
Trespasses (2022)
Louise Kennedy
"Kennedy's writing is beautiful and I will continue to read everything she publishes."
Maps of Our Spectacular Bodies (2022)
Maddie Mortimer
"An original and memorable novel written in shimmering prose. The characters stayed with me long after I'd finished reading."
