Rosie Price recommends
Braised Pork (2020)
"An Yu writes beautifully about loneliness, the experience of isolation, and the possibility of human connection, however fragile. Braised Pork is mesmerising."
"Wickedly paced and utterly chilling, making space for the interior lives of its victims and their gradually shrinking worlds, all the while exposing the failures of the systems that are supposed to protect them. As compulsive as it is heartbreaking."
Blue Ticket (2020)
"Strange and luminous, beautifully spare and precise: Sophie Mackintosh constructs her disturbing premise with such skill that I found myself forgetting that the world of Blue Ticket is not (quite) our own. A thrilling and nuanced exploration of what it means to follow one’s own longing to the point of destruction and beyond."
Highway Blue (2021)
"This novel will take you down darkened alleyways and along sweltering open highways. I loved this bookdark, glimmering, journeying deep into modern America on a knife edge between love and dependence."
