Leone Ross recommends

Top Doll (2024)
Karen McCarthy Woolf
"An astonishing combination of depth, compassion and beauty. A constant series of delicious surprises."
thumb
Mister, Mister (2023)
Guy Gunaratne
"I wish I could declare a national reading day in Britain where adults read the same book together, beginning with Mister, Mister. Gunaratne fits a whole nation inside one complex character and in doing so shows us our bones and our souls. Brimming with compassion and Dickensian in its breadth, this incredibly important book eviscerates othering and insists that Britain claim a new identity."

What A Mother's Love Don't Teach You (2022)
Sharma Taylor
"Truth-telling! Taylor's debut is tender, violent and uncompromising in turns. A vivid and authentic Jamaica that tells a tale too often hidden, for fantasies of sun, sea and sand."
