"A book as rich with wonder as the market in its pages. Galey's London is a world where anything - anything - is for sale: a glance, the feeling of moonlight, true love. Careful or you might end up bartering your heart away."
Impossible Creatures (2023)
Katherine Rundell
"A menagerie of delights. So packed with magic you'll want to take notes. Impossible Creatures is a world you'll want to move into."
The Broken Places (2023)
Russell Franklin
"A humane and compassionate look at a fascinating life, the complexity of gender, and the destructive legacy of being the child of the world's most famous alpha male."
