Three Aitken Alexander authors have been chosen by the ipaper as three of the best books published this year so far:-
Hamish Hamilton, £16.99
Evaristo’s sparkling prose and subversive plots surprise and intrigue. This imaginative, joy-filled eighth novel tells the story of black British womanhood through a variety of voices.
Chatto & Windus, £18.99
Haddon’s first novel since 2012’s The Red House – he brought out a short-story collection in 2016 – is a stunning blend of adventure and myth which tells the story of Pericles across different eras and timelines, radically reinventing it again and again.
Many books out this year deal with the #MeToo movement. None are as sharp or as satisfying as Baker’s clever combination of campus satire and psychological suspense.
