The Sunlight Pilgrims

by Jenni Fagan

(Windmill Books)

Author of 2013’s much-admired The Panopticon, Jenni Fagan’s latest is a dystopian story set in 2020 as the world begins to freeze over. While people head south to the warmth, survivalist Constance and her young trans daughter Stella eke out a living in a frozen Scotland. There they form a bond with Dylan, who arrives from London following the death of his mother and grandmother, and must face a community as chilly as the world outside. A very impressive and beautifully drawn novel.

Enigma Variations

by André Aciman


Best known for his 2007 novel, Call Me By Your Name, which spawned the Oscar-winning film, André Aciman’s latest centres on bisexual Paul and five very different love affairs he has throughout his life. From a platonic relationship as an adolescent, through an angry relationship with Maud, to tennis player Manfred, and onwards to Chloe and Heidi, Aciman vividly sketches a man never fully at ease with himself. While not as great overall as its superb opening section, it’s a very fine and intriguing piece of work.
