Lucy Mushita Chinongwa

Chinongwa’s family have been displaced from their lands and are very poor.

David Cohen The Terrible Event

A new collection of stories from the winner of the Russell Prize for humour writing. A public memorial’s name is changed to avoid any mention of the tragedy it has been set up to commemorate. Activists campaign against a local gift shop. An academic’s research into roadside memorials takes a peculiar turn. The Terrible Event delivers not just one terrible event, but many – something for everyone. ‘Wildly inventive. Delightfully strange. I absolutely loved it.’ – Bram Presser

Elise Esther Hearst One Day We’re All Going to Die

At 27, Naomi is just trying to be a normal person. A normal person who works at the Museum of Jewish Heritage, who cares for lost things, found things, and her family. It would be fine if she didn’t bear the weight of the unspoken grief of her Holocaust-survivor grandmother; if she just knew how to be without feeling the pull of expectation, the fear of disappointing others. Hearst’s debut novel explores questions of culture, identity politics and intergenerational trauma.
