What Happened to Us

by Ian Holding

In lean, lyrical prose – reminiscent of the work of J.M. Coetzee and Cormac McCarthy – Zimbabwean writer Ian Holding delivers a mesmerising coming-of-age tale of guilt and responsibility set within the fault-lines of modern Africa. 


The Dominant Animal

by Kathryn Scanlan

Dark, comedic and breathtakingly poetic, this is the debut short story collection from a remarkably assured literary artist.



by Rosanna McLaughlin

Comprising personal essays, fiction and art criticism, this is a merciless yet hilarious satire of the art-doting middle classes.
