Meredith Westgate recommends
Tell Me an Ending (2022)
Jo Harkin
"A twisting, electric debut exploring the potential for a life without our most painful or regretful memories. Tell Me an Ending examines the intersection of self and memory - when chosen memories can be removed - and how what we attempt to leave behind eventually catches up with us."
Walk the Vanished Earth (2022)
Erin Swan
"Walk the Vanished Earth is a sweeping and astonishing exploration of what hope looks like in times of uncertainty, in the midst of devastation. Massive and ambitious in scope, but executed with precision and intimacy, Swan's debut considers legacy and how trauma, both human and environmental, ripples through generations, through existence. In the end we're left considering fate, agency, destruction, and what endures."
