2023 (Tony's Version)
Raw, brutal, and utterly compelling. If The Godfather was set in India in the early 2000s.
A thoughtful tale of injustice and revenge, touching on themes of empowerment, equality, patriarchy, and poverty. And a truly laugh-out-loud comic romp.
Following the life and love of Rafael Pinto from Sarajevo in 1914 across continents and decades, Hemon has woven a tapestry of ghosts and memory, of longing and survival, that is achingly gorgeous.
A big, beautiful disaster of a novel. Cringe, but free. Grieving, but horny.
Nic Brown chronicles his transformation from a drummer into a writer, a husband, a father, a teacher, and eventually, a drummer again. Bang Bang Crash is thoughtful, funny, and suffused with both melancholy and joy.
A lovely coming of age novel of grief, love, and Squash. This ripped my heart open in the best possible way!
This novella is a dark, glittering jewel, encrusted in blood, awash in viscera and gore. At its heart, it’s a story of pure love and undying devotion.
The fantasy world of the Witch King is full of political intrigue, delightfully clever magic, and badass antiheroes with sharp tongues. I couldn’t put it down!
Twenty perfect stories, each one weird and wonderful, disturbing and delightful.
A metaphysical adventure that becomes a physical adventure and then gets super metaphysical again. An exploration of grief, but not necessarily for the dead.
