Posted on December 16, 2015 by Yen-Yen Lu

To get us into the festive spirit here at Inpress we've been looking back at some of our favourite books from 2015. It's...

Taking you from 1612 Lancashire to modern day Dushanbe, here's November's top picks!

Rebecca's Choice: Malkin by Camille Ralphs
 

http://inpressbooks.co.uk/products/malkin

Malkin is a vivid evocation of the trials of the Pendle Witches in 1612. The sequence of poems is delivered in the form of epitaphic monologues, with the accused men and women eerily addressing the reader with their confessions and pleas. 

Strikingly, poet Camille Ralphs has employed the technique of ‘free spelling’ throughout the monologues, bringing out new meanings in familiar words and encouraging the reader to immerse themselves in the world of the poems.

Yen-Yen's Choice: The Disobedient Wife by Annika Milisic-Stanley
 
http://inpressbooks.co.uk/products/the-disobedient-wifeDedicated to the women of Tajikstan, The Disobedient Wife intertwines the two narratives of Harriet, whose journal portrays a darker interior world than that of the rich wife of a powerful and influential husband, and Nargris, her local nanny and maid, struggling with poverty, yet with a strength that Harriet comes to admire as her own life unravels against a backdrop of violence and betrayal.

Rich with sense of place and deeply humane, Annika Milisic-Stanley tells a story of how two women survive and thrive in difficult circumstances.
