Summer Reads - Arizona

Sabrina, by Nick Drnaso

First graphic novel to be nominated for the Man Booker prize! It is dark and captures mundane life on the page.

Convenience Store Woman, by Sayaka Murata

For fans of The Vegetarian by Han Kang. A woman in Japan is in love with a convenience store.

The Seas, by Samantha Hunt

I loved her last book The Dark Dark, so I am really looking forward to reading this one. It is described as a creepy and poetic, subversive and strangely funny. A story about a girl who might be a mermaid. My interest is piqued. 

Moomin and the Great Flood, by Tove Jansson

A gorgeous Moomin book filled with beautiful sepia watercolours. Perfect for collectors and for children who need to be introduced to Moomin.

Hera Lindsay Bird, by Hera Lindsay Bird

This is a contemporary witty book of poetry. Have you ever wanted to read a poem about Monica Geller from Friends? This is the book for you.

A Bubble, by Geneviève Castrée

Everyone who reads this board book for children has tears in their eyes afterwards. 

Unclean Jobs for Women and Girls, by Alissa Nutting

The title delivers. This is a collection of 12 different stories about misfit women who scramble for agency in a series of uncanny circumstances.
