Many books don’t receive the media attention or readership they deserve; we could’ve made this list of the year’s most unfairly neglected books at least twice as long. When a book becomes a hit, everyone wants to read it. That’s great news if you’re one of those lucky writers. But if you’d like to discover an excellent writer you may not have heard much about, check out this week’s list.
THE THOUGHTS AND HAPPENINGS OF WILFRED PRICE PURVEYOR OF SUPERIOR FUNERALS
by Wendy Jones
"From the vagaries of desire, through parental love and its absence, to small-town morality, the British author has put together a thematically rich book in a perfectly rendered time and place."
A comedy of errors in rural Wales evolves into a dark tale of family secrets in this very accomplished debut.
