Sarah Moss recommends

The Glass Woman (2019)
Caroline Lea
"Memorable and compelling. A novel about what haunts us - and what should."
thumb
The Mercies (2020)
Kiran Millwood Hargrave
"The most interesting historical fiction speaks of the time of writing as much as of its subject . . . The Mercies shows us the patriarchal fear of women's strength and reason."
thumb
Hamnet (2020)
Maggie O'Farrell
"Grief and loss so finely written I could hardly bear to read it."
thumb
Sharks in the Time of Saviours (2020)
Kawai Strong Washburn
"Sharks in the Time of Saviours is a brilliant novel and one of the most engaging and memorable books I've read this year. Sentences sparkle, the narrative voices remain distinctive and complete, and the deep notes of magic sound under the realism of poverty and loss. I didn't want it to end."
thumb
Nervous System (2021)
Lina Meruane
"Nervous System is fast, uncompromising and shimmering with intelligence."
