   The Impossible Fairytale   Han Yujoo  “This début novel sketches the barbaric politics of elementary school with terrifying clarity … The narrative turn is both exuberantly postmodern and in dead earnest.”    –The New Yorker

   Small Beauty   jiaqing wilson-yang  “ Small Beauty  embodies everything I look for in new queer writing: a scorchingly original and engrossing voice, telling a story we haven’t heard before, that’s still somehow familiar, humane and heart-bruisingly recognisable.”  –Benjamin Law

   Axiomatic   Maria Tumarkin  “Nobody can write like Maria Tumarkin: she charges headlong into the worst and best of us, with an iron refusal to soften or decorate; sentences bare of artifice, stripped back to the bone, to the nerve; fired by raging grief and love.”  –Helen Garner

   Pink Mountain on Locust Island   Jamie Marina Lau  “Lau’s surreal prose captures the confusion of adolescence in the 21st century. Vivid, inventive descriptions of yum cha, high-school friendships and claustrophobic apartment living evoke the experience of growing up in a diasporic community and the sensory overload of being surrounded by people, yet still alone.”  – Books+Publishing

   Apple and Knife   Intan Paramaditha  “Paramaditha’s stories are shockingly bold and macabrely funny, powerfully defamiliarising the cultural lore of patriarchy. What makes them special is their lack of interest in representing women as victims – here, the taboo of feminist anger is flagrantly and entertainingly broken.”   –The Saturday Paper

   Law School: Sex and relationship advice from Benjamin Law and his mum Jenny Phang     “Part sex-ed, part life-coaching, part-comedy double act. Benjamin Law and his mother Jenny are not always the most wise (or appropriate) of agony aunts, but they’re easily the most honest, heart-warming and unflinchingly hilarious. The Margaret and David of romance and sex advice.”  –Lawrence Leung
