The Current Contemporary Literature Book Box Explained

It’s dark and frightening, but what a delight to read Daisy Johnson’s second novel. Inspired by gothic literature, a subgenre of horror novel, this young author will keep you awake at night. She sets the scene in a house in the moor of Yorkshire that seems to move and breathe with its inhabitants. The two sisters, July and September, are bewitching, but also very disturbed.

Sistersby Daisy Johnson (Random House, 2021)

Something unspeakable has happened to sisters July and September. Desperate for a fresh start, they move across the country to an old family house that has a troubled life of its own. Noises come from behind the walls. Lights flicker of their own accord. Sleep feels impossible, dreams are endless.

In their new, unsettling surroundings, July finds that the fierce bond she’s always had with September – forged with a blood promise when they were children – is beginning to change in ways she cannot understand.
