Another week of some good reads and some new books I’m looking forward to (especially as it’s raining heaps as I write this!)
This is Gonna End in Tears by Liza Klaussmann (available tomorrow) arrived from Hachette. Set in 1984, it’s about three former childhood friends. Miller and Ash are married and living in Wonderland, but Ash is having an affair and Miller feels like she’s disappearing. Olly lives a precipitous charmed life in LA. Over the summer, the three are reunited but they forget to look around them…
Everything Feels Like the End of the World by Else Fitzgerald (available 2nd August) was thanks to Allen & Unwin. It’s a collection of short speculative fiction in a possible future Australia that reflects on human emotions, yet involves climate change and AI.
Life Economy by Sayaka Murata (also available 2nd August) came from Allen & Unwin. It is a collection of short stories that are unusual, different and out of this world. Think body horror, revenge and transformation.
