Douglas Stuart recommends
God's Teeth and Other Phenomena (2020)
James Kelman
"James Kelman changed my life."
The Octopus Man (2021)
Jasper Gibson
"What a brilliant and necessary book. A funny, heart-expanding story of a man trapped between the God-like voice in his head and society's desire for him to be 'normal.' It's a deeply compassionate portrait and I felt the frustration of battling a broken mental healthcare system, and the guilt and hope of everyone who loves poor, cheeky, troubled Tom and wants so badly for him to get better."
Small Things Like These (2021)
Claire Keegan
"A book that makes you excited to discover everything its author has ever written… Absolutely beautiful."
