 In case "the first book in a trilogy set in fantasy Africa, by the Man Booker winning Marlon James" wasn't enough to hook you, this is also a novel that has shadowy roof walkers, lightning vampires, unreliable narrators, thoughtful exploration of gay sexuality, excellent cursing and one very smart buffalo. A mix of sword and sorcery and harrowing character drama, it's absolutely worth the investment of time and serious emotional anxiety it'll take to see it through.

Equal parts Harry Potter and David Cronenberg, Vita Nostra is a magical school story that is also an intense psychodrama. As a child, Sasha Samokhina is recruited by a mysterious man into a college that teaches how to understand and control space and time. If she fails, her parents will suffer. If she succeeds, her body and mind will change beyond recognition. What lies on the other side of the final examination? You'll have to read to find out...and you won't be able to stop.
