Nick White recommends
The Girl From Blind River (2018)
"A pitch-perfect page turner...Combining the beautiful prose of Daniel Woodrell with Sarah Waters’ keen eye for dramatic tension, Massey has delivered a debut novel that will leave you breathless, exhausted, and, as with any great writer, hungry for more."
I Know You Know Who I Am (2020)
"Sometimes you read a collection and you wonder how a mere mortal wrote it because the language is so pure, the depth of emotion so profoundPeter Kispert is a wizard, creating a collection of liars and lies that will ring true in the heart of any reader. A tour de force: read this book."
The Poison Flood (2020)
"Jordan Farmer's novel is both a gripping page-turner and a stunning meditation on body and place. The Poison Flood will punch you right in the throat with its honesty and its heart. Farmer is a singular talent, with a voice I won't soon forget."
You Would Have Told Me Not To (2020)
"With the craft of Cheever and the heart of Chekov, Christopher Coake's You Would Have Told Me Not To deftly explores and deconstructs masculinity, and reminds us why he is a master of the form. A rare feat: a book of the moment, and for the ages."
