A rich and layered story about one very large family. I found it a little dense and prefer a story focused on just a few characters but it's undeniably beautifully written.

A brilliant novel. Revealing a dark underbelly of the publishing world. Hilarious, but also deeply emotional. I was often on the edge of my seat.

Escape Routes by Naomi Ishiguro

Whimsical yet grounded in reality. Naomi Ishiguro is a new talent. Each story is a pearl. Beautifully told with a mix of humour and sadness, each story builds on the next creating a thoughtful and insightful whole.
