I was buying Laura Jean McKay’s The Animals In That Country (Scribe) on the back of it having won the Arthur C. Clarke Award and after I’d read a fantastic interview with the author by Alex Lockwood for XR Writers.

But when I took it to the counter at Waterstone’s, the shop assistant clapped and said: “I loved this book so much, I got a dingo tattoo in honour of it.”

Now that’s what I call a book recommendation!
