Rise & Shine

This abstract portrait of humanity’s struggle to survive in a world decimated by humankind’s foolhardy choices and climate crises gives fans of dystopian fiction a perplexing new world to consider.

The Death of Murat Idrissi

In this taut, psychologically powerful tale, long-listed for the 2019 International Booker Prize, Wieringa’s masterly descriptions create a sense of foreboding.
