A Study in Drowning by Ava Reid


Bookseller review:

‘Wow – this is one of the best books I have ever read. A moving and thought-provoking story of authorship, belief, courage and truth. Interwoven with fictional academic papers, the novel becomes the best type of dark academia – the kind that exposes the sexism and bias within scholarly studies and the publishing industry. At the heart of this story is the importance of stories themselves, and who gets to tell them. I will be recommending this book to everyone immediately.’ – Helena
