Slights

I bought a copy of Kaaron Warren's novel Slights at work (my other work, yes I have three jobs) yesterday. What an utterly compelling read, if I wasn't being such a disciplined writer (yes, I can be, thank you very much) I would have given myself over to it.

Kaaron like Margo Lanagan*, and, well, like all my favourite writers, is at once disturbing, dark, and utterly truthful, in the way that good fiction is truthful. It's a wounding, powerful and fascinating read - I'm utterly jealous of her.

Get yourself a copy today.

*who's been in the news of late - you know you're doing something right when you make a bit of a stir.
