Tim Pears recommends
The Sun Road (2003)
Hannah MacDonald
"Very moving ... Hannah MacDonald is a natural writer, with a sharp eye for telling detail ... wonderful."
American Purgatorio (2004)
John Haskell
"A fresh, light, deep, sad, funny, moving trippy dream of a novel... Beautiful."
The Sentimentalists (2009)
Johanna Skibsrud
"A probing exploration - now subtle, oblique, now forensic, scalpel-sharp - of the ramifications of a person's experience through the lives and relationships of those he loves. Of the way in which what we do, and witness, echoes through our lives, and the next generation's."
Wait For Me, Jack (2017)
Addison Jones
"A lesson, not in how to find love, but how to make love fast."
