Things We Lost in the Fire

Things We Lost in the Fire

Mariana Enriquez

£9.99 £9.49

The story ‘Our Lady of the Quarry’ in this collection was what first inspired me to experiment with the choral voice. As she said in an interview about this story: “I’ve written many stories about teen-age girls that tend to have just one voice, yes, like a chorus, because to me there’s a buzz at that age, a world that functions in your own private language. You are going through a metamorphosis: it’s a very mythological time. You’re a beauty and you’re a monster and you can be damaged and you can hurt.” She balances horror and beauty, power and vulnerability so perfectly in her descriptions of teenage girls.

The Member of the Wedding

The Member of the Wedding

Carson McCullers

£9.99 £9.49

The definitive coming-of-age narrator for me; her longing to belong is so pure, her logic so acute and yet illusory - this book destroys me every time.

Their Eyes Were Watching God

Their Eyes Were Watching God

Zora Neale Hurston

£9.99 £9.49

A book full of gorgeous sentences; a story of heat and heartbreak and storms, the ultimate Florida novel.

Marilynne Robinson

£9.99 £9.49

Two sisters on the cusp of growing up choose to either join in with the world or live outside of it - eerie, mysterious, strange. Very good on the mysteries of mothers. Breathtaking sentences - rhythm and meaning perfectly intertwined in every one.

Lorrie Moore

£9.99 £9.49

The ultimate description of girlhood for me; all singing and weird snacks and trying to find rides home. The most accurate and tender telling of first friendship morphing into first heartbreak. And the dizzy sadness of misguided nostalgia. Loving and devastating and hilarious.
