4 Books That Are Worth Your Attention

Radiance by Catherynne M Valente (Corsair, €24, out March 3) Valente’s first adult novel in more than three years, this is an alt-history space opera mystery set in a Hollywood and solar system very different from our own. Despite that, the story is moving and Valente’s writing will capture your interest from the start.
