Hagstone (2024)
Sinéad Gleeson
"This is a wild, singular story that gripped me from the start."
All the World Beside (2024)
Garrard Conley
"A gorgeous, spellbinding work of historical fiction that conjures up a society wrestling with faith, love, and a sense of belonging. It is a heartbreaking account of forbidden passions and lost innocence told with intimate, lyrical beauty. It is truly sublime. I loved it."
Pity (2024)
Andrew McMillan
"Tender and true. It explores with brilliance and deep empathy how our lives - and our secrets - are always intertwined with those who went before us."
