Fervour (2024)

Toby Lloyd
"Fervour is the book we need now. Bracing, compassionate, wise, terrifying - this beautifully written novel will haunt your dreams. That is, if you can put it down long enough to get any sleep."
The Men Can't Be Saved (2023)
Ben Purkert
"Ben Purkert's The Men Can't Be Saved is a work of wit and timely power. Faith and modernity, capitalism and masculinity, sex and identity--this novel has it all, and gets away with it. The style and the intellect herein mark the coming of a major new talent."
I Meant It Once (2023)
Kate Doyle
"With I Meant It Once, Kate Doyle proves to be an exciting, fresh, intelligent, unique, poetic and wild new talent. More, the stories feel like dispatches from the front of modernity. This is what it feels like to be here, and young, right now. This is a timely, inspired, great book."
