In the Garden of the Fugitives by Ceridwen Dovey

Addictive and unsettling, In the Garden of the Fugitives is a masterpiece of duplicity and counterplay, as brilliantly illuminating as it is surprising – about the obscure workings of guilt in the human psyche, the compulsion to create, and the dangerous morphing of desire into control. It is the breakthrough work of one of Australia’s most exciting emerging writers.

  1. Wow, lots of great titles there and each one sounds intriguing, I think I’ll add most of them to my ginormous TBR list.

    That is a lot of books you’re reading for this month, I’m lucky if I get through two, maybe, three in the next week and a half.
