Sophie Mackintosh recommends
I See Buildings Fall Like Lightning (2024)
Keiran Goddard
"A virtuosic and devastating exploration of the relationships that bind us, and the places that always call us back. Tender and fierce in turn, Goddard writes about class and friendship with the deftest of touches."
Daughter (2023)
Claudia Dey
"I will go wherever Claudia Dey takes me with her prose--always elegant, yet brimming with color and sharpness, it never fails to breathe new life. I loved Daughter in all its gorgeous power."
Ripe (2023)
Sarah Rose Etter
"Ripe is a triumph - blade-sharp and unflinching. It walks a darkly gorgeous tightrope between the bitter and beautiful with skill that takes your breath away."
