Jacob Ross recommends

No Country for Girls (2022)
Emma Styles
"A taut, evocative and utterly absorbing road-trip thriller about two young women on the run for their lives, both caught up in a landscape as full of threat and danger as the people who are after them. Unputdownable."
thumb
When We Were Birds (2022)
Ayanna Lloyd Banwo
"I love this book: the originality of its premise, the power and beauty of its prose; the depth of its explorations of what it means to love and be loved. When We Were Birds is about the silver cord of memory and blood, and history that bind a family of women even after death. An exceptional novel that delivers on its promise."

Girl, Woman, Other (2019)
Bernardine Evaristo
"Bernardine Evaristo is without doubt one of the most important voices in contemporary British literature. Her phenomenal writing gets at the heart of what affects and concerns us most in these times."
