October 31st and we’re about to go back into lockdown 😔, hopefully my October roundup will inspire some lockdown reading for y’all.

A month of fiction, with several debuts, full of brilliant stories and characters.

1. Daisy Jones & The Six by @tjenkinsreid ~ see previous post

2. Beasts of No Nation by Uzodinma Iweala ~ a brilliant debut novel from the perspective of a child soldier in a nondescript African country.

3. The Heart’s Invisible Furies by John Boyne ~ the life story of Cyril Avery who’s sexuality confuses, tortures and changes his life many times over as he lives in Ireland, Amsterdam and the States.

4. Ghosts by @dollyalderton ~ see previous post

5. Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi ~ one sister is married to a slave trader and one is captured as a slave leading to two multigenerational stories of contrasting experiences of slavery and the British colonisation of west Africa.

6. Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata ~ quirky and bizarre novel about a woman who’s life revolves around the convenience store in which she works.
