Hay Discovery Fictions

Three more break-through novels

Three more break-through novels. Selected by The New Yorker as one of the twenty best American novelists under forty, the South Korean-born Lee’s third novel A loft is the portrait of Jerry Battle. Whitbread-shortlisted Sutherland’s Venus as a Boy is the story of a boy’s mythical journey from a bullied and heartbroken childhood in Orkney and the sort of sex that makes people see angels, to a man in a room in Soho whose flesh is turning to gold. Aslam’s Maps for Lost Lovers is set in a northern English town where two Pakistani boys Jugnu and Chanda, disappear. Chanda’s brothers are arrested for murder.
