2022 Readers’ Choice Award Winner Laura Fish signs publishing deal

We’re delighted to share that our 2022 Readers’ Choice Award Winner, Laura Fish, has signed a publishing deal with Manchester-based Fly on the Wall Press to release her prize-winning novel, Lying Perfectly Still.

The book will be published on 18 November 2024.

Lying Perfectly Still follows Koliwe, who travels to southern Africa to work as an aid worker during the AIDS crisis. When Thandi, a local girl whom Koliwe befriends, goes missing, Koliwe tries to search for the truth and is forced to face the complexities of her own past. The narrative gives an insider’s perspective on the horrors of the exploitation operating within parts of the international aid community.

It is Laura Fish’s third novel.
