Rupert Thomson recommends
Mrs S (2023)
K Patrick
"K Patrick's breathless, splintered prose vividly communicates their subject, which is erotic longing and a desire that must remain clandestine. What a beautifully crafted and uncannily accomplished debut. What an irresistible new voice."
Sea Monsters (2019)
Chloe Aridjis
"Intense and impressionistic, it seems to hang on in the air long after the last page."
