What to read in September?

Hi all,

What to read in September? Here are my recommendations among the many new releases.

A Long Way from Home by Peter Carey (Faber). The double Booker winner scrutinises Australian identity, indigenous and white, through the story of one woman’s involvement in a brutally punishing 1950s round-Australia motorsport race.

The Reservoir Tapes by Jon McGregor (4th Estate). Spinoff tales about the characters from the Costa-winning Reservoir 13.

Turning for Home by Barney Norris (Doubleday). The follow-up to the playwright’s debut novel, the quietly brilliant Five Rivers Met on a Wooded Plain, focuses on a family gathering.

The Unmapped Country by Ann Quin (And Other Stories). Rare stories and unpublished fragments from the radical 1960s writer.

Kintu by Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi (Oneworld). Generations of a family suffer under a curse in a Ugandan epic spanning the last 250 years that blends oral storytelling, myth and folklore and has been described as “the most important book to come out of Uganda for half a century”.

Let us know what you think and what you're planning on reading!
