Three of the Best

Three Aitken Alexander authors have been chosen by the ipaper as three of the best books published this year so far:-


Girl, Woman, Other

Bernardine Evaristo

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.


The Porpoise

Mark Haddon

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.


The Body Lies

Jo Baker

Doubleday, £12.99

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.
