Isabelle’s ‘Figuring It Out Bundle’ incudes three of our favourite new novels: Luster, Little Scratch and All Men Want to Know
Luster by Raven Leilani is a provocative, page-turning debut novel that follows a young woman’s new relationship with an older married man. It is an honest take on the constantly shifting landscape of sexual and racial politics in the 21st century.
Little Scratch by Rebecca Watson is an experimental novel which brings us into the life of an unnamed woman who is processing a recent act of sexual violence. Through clock-watching and WhatsApp notifications, Watson interlinks the coexistence of monotony with our intelligent internal minds.
All Men Want To Know by Nina Bouraoui is a beautifully written book which has been described as a ‘defining portrait of womanhood’. It follows eighteen year old Nina who lives alone in Paris after fleeing her idyllic childhood in Algeria. Through visiting the legendary gay nightclub, The Kat, she explores themes of shame and sexuality through writing about her mother.
The book bundle comes beautifully wrapped in brown craft paper and a green Daunt Books ribbon, making it a perfect gift.
