    Thanks for the tip - put me on to the Ian Penman book everyone's been recommending and which I'd forgotten about.

      I've gone for the Tokarczuk, Grudova and the Kinsky.

      I would recommend the Alexievich and Zone by Enard (the other two I read are a bit samey). Pond by Bennett was ok.

      Of note is Football by Jean-Philippe Toussaint, it's not as good as his other fiction but does include Zidane's Melancholy which is an amazing piece of writing.

        Fantastic publisher.

        The book by Ian, who I love to bits, I think says something along the lines of, "publishers these days demand shorter and shorter word counts, it's so hard to express yourself these days when you're constrained by space". Take that with a pinch of salt! One time, he submitted 20,000 odd words too much for a chapter for a book. So we ran it.

          I found Insurgent Empire by Priyamvada Gopal and Full Surrogacy Now by Sophie Lewis, both of which I've been wanting to read. A terrific essay by Lewis is also on the site - https://www.versobooks.com/blogs/457...-to-make-it-up
