New and upcoming books
Rufi Thorpe recommends
The Garden (2024)
Clare Beams
"Deliciously eerie and brilliantly written, Beams explores motherhood and gestation in a way that feels new and trailblazing, but that will also ring true to the lived experience of every woman who has ever been pregnant. A shimmering, strange, important novel - I couldn't put it down."
A Home for Friendless Women (2024)
Kelly E Hill
"Hill is deliciously unsentimental and humanist in her rendering of these women and their world, resulting in a historical novel that feels both accurate and strikingly modern.A delight from start to finish."
Goodbye Earl (2023)
Leesa Cross-Smith
"I can't help devouring Leesa Cross-Smith's prose like it's candy, with turns of phrase so unexpected and delightful, so uniquely her own, that I just want to chew and chew them. Filled with charming characters and beautiful details, Goodbye Earl makes murder as delicious as cherry pie."
