Swallowing Mercury is an unsettling, sublime coming-of-age novel. It will transport you into its world; while I was reading it, I could almost feel the smoke and mist in the air and see the beauty and squalor of 1970s communist Poland. This is one of the loveliest books I've ever read.Recommended by Bitty E.
Dare to Disappoint is a funny, engaging snapshot of life in 1980s Turkey. It's also a brilliant treatise on learning how to be true to yourself. A charming, witty graphic memoir. Recommended by Bitty E.
