A Quiet Place

June 22, 2024

These prose artists share a stylistic elegance that lends a quiet power to their writing. We encounter a tale about siblings and the power of nature; a nonfiction book on the mystery and influence of gardens throughout history; a novel about the romantic awakening of disparate souls; and the story of a shameful family legacy. Those four tranquil books are offset by one writer’s turbulent novel of sex, debauchery, and danger in New Lagos.

Happy reading,
