Kate Saunders recommends
thumb
George and Rue (2004)
George Elliott Clarke
"Rough, uncompromising and ultimately heartbreaking."
thumb
The Lost Dog (2007)
Michelle de Kretser
"A beautiful piece of writing - place your bets now for the Booker."
thumb
The House at Midnight (2008)
Lucie Whitehouse
"A fine piece of high gothic, as dark and delicious as bitter chocolate, and also a moving lament for the loss of youth. Whitehouse is an English middle-class Donna Tartt, skillfully building layers of menace. I was spellbound."
thumb
The Strange Fate of Kitty Easton (2011)
(Laurence Bartram, book 2)
Elizabeth Speller
"Speller's writing is gorgeous."
