Visitation Street
(Hardback)
Ivy Pochoda
 

Visitation street by Ivy Pochoda had me in its grip right from the first page. It's a dark, intense story of grief, mystery, and loss of innocence, and it starts with a beautifully atmospheric evocation of a neighbourhood in a heatwave: 'Summer is everybody else's party. It belongs to the recently arrived hipsters in their beat-up sneakers and paint-splattered jeans. It belongs to Puerto Rican families with foil trays of meat, sending charcoal smoke signals into the air, even to the old men...watching the neighbourhood pass them by.' Pochoda tells the story of two teenaged girls, by turns bored with the prospect of endless scorching days stretching ahead of them, and excited about the potential of life that they're just beginning to grasp. Their attempt to escape the heat of a New York summer with a late night trip on an inflatable raft leads, almost inevitably, to tragedy, and sets in motion a summer of and revelation and breakdown. - Heather

The People of Forever are Not Afraid
(Hardback)
Shani Boianjiu
Three girls finish their schooling in Israel and begin their mandatory military service. Each finds ways to deal with the interminable waiting for something to happen, as the nonchalant hedonism of youth collides with the febrile reality of the West Bank conflict. Sure to provoke strong opinions, Boianju's striking debut is an unsettling read, swinging wildly between pathos and absurdity, but never forgetting the human factor in everything that happens.

Leaving the Atocha Station
(Paperback)
Ben Lerner
Leaving the Atocha Station is a beautifully written debut by prizewinning poet Ben Lerner. Adam Gordon, an American poet in his early twenties, finds himself in Madrid on a prestigious fellowship. Tanked up on espressos, un-prescribed prescription tranquillisers and fluctuating levels of terror, Adam struggles to claim authenticity and maintain a grasp on the fine line between life and art. In many ways it can be considered a coming of age novel, or rather, a novel documenting an artist's growth into maturity, except we are left questioning whether this was ever actually achieved... Clever, funny and at times, poignant (despite our unreliable narrator's best intentions) this is a thoroughly enjoyable read. - Fran

Tiger Hills
(Paperback)
Sarita Mandanna
 

As they grow up together, Devanna hopes that his childhood friendship with Devi will lead to marriage, but the young woman's head is turned by the quasi-mythical figure of the warrior who killed a marauding tiger single-handedly. Warped by his traumatic experiences at boarding school, Devanna's jealousy provokes a moment of callousness that is to define the rest of their lives, as they watch the modern world encroach upon the jungle paradise of southern India.

Dreams and Shadows
(Hardback)
C. Robert Cargill; Sinem Erkas
This debut novel by the screenwriter of the 2012 horror movie, Sinister (starring Ethan Hawke), is a lovingly crafted tale, which offers well above average spills and chills. Set in the Austin, Texas and the fantastic fairy world of the Limestone Kingdom, it sees young Colby Collins and Ewan Thatcher share an adventure that involves changelings, wizards, elves, angels and djinni. Don’t worry if you're not versed in any of the above creatures, the book within this book, Dr Thaddeus Ray’s A Chronicle of Dreamfolk, will explain everything you will need to know about these fairy folk. Echoing the works of Neil Gaiman and Guillermo del Toro, Dreams and Shadows is a twisting of the fairy tale genre, fast paced with well-rounded and believable characters. A must read for those who like their fiction ‘dark’. - Andy

This is the Way
(Hardback)
Gavin Corbett
The ancient blood feud between the Traveller families, the Sonaghans and Gillaroos, is bridged by one young couple. Their son flees to the anonymous streets of Dublin, hoping to leave his divided loyalties behind.

Tampa
(Paperback)
Alissa Nutting

There's a certain prurient horror to reading Alissa Nutting's tabloid-baiting story of a predatory Florida schoolteachers calculating seduction of a 14-year-old boy in her class. But, more than that, the zeal with which she pursues her goal, her rationalisation of what society finds abhorrent and her manipulative dissembling with all those who disrupt her scheme coalesce into an enthralling portrait of a sociopath. - Jonathan
