Winner of the 2020 Costa First Novel Ingrid Persaud’s unforgettable debut Love After Love sings from the heart. Irrepressible Betty Ramdin, shy son Solo and marvellous lodger Mr Chetan form an unconventional household in Trinidad until a terrible truth drives them apart.

Deepa Anappara’s debut novel Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line was named as one of the best books of the year by The New York Times and longlisted for the Women’s Prize.  Nine year old Jai uses some of the crime solving skills picked up from episodes of Police Patrol to find a missing boy.

“Love after Love – Dazzlingly told in the most electrifying prose you will read all year.” Marlon James

“Anappara creates an endearing and highly engaging narrator to navigate us through the dark underbelly of modern India” Observer
