Jacqueline Crooks and Fiona Williams

Jacqueline Crooks and Fiona Williams

Two debuts full of beauty, musicality and feminist power, exploring inner-city and rural diversity, and the relationships between identity, belonging and place.

Jacqueline Crooks's Fire Rush, shortlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction and Waterstones Debut Fiction Prize, immerses you in the rhythms of the underground dub and dancehall scene in 1970s London, pitching love and freedom against racism and police violence as a young woman seeks  independence and a life that means something.

Fiona Williams's lyrical and powerful The House of Broken Bricks – winner of the Bridport Prize First Novel Award – follows a broken family living in the countryside and their attempts to heal.
