Oyinkan Braithwaite’s deliciously disturbing creations Ayoola and Korede cover up murderous crimes with amoral abandon. Annaleese Jochems’ Cynthia is a memorable monster whose obsession has fatal consequences she casually shrugs off. Their books My Sister the Serial Killer and Baby are gleeful taut thrillers with humour as black as tar.
Oyinkan Braithwaite’s first novel, My Sister the Serial Killer, has been listed as one of the most anticipated debuts of 2019 by publications including The New York Times, The Guardian and Publishers’ Weekly.
Annaleese Jochems’ first book Baby was longlisted for the Dublin International Literary Prize and won the Best First Book Award at the 2018 NZ Ockham Book Awards and the 2016 Adam Prize from the International Institute of Modern Letters.
