New fiction: Harmless Like You

This beautiful novel explores creativity and the complicated relationships between parents and children.

Art dealer Jay is having trouble adjusting to life as a parent.

At the root of his problem is that his own mother, Yuki, left him as a child.

As he delves into his abandonment, the parallel storyline explores Yuki’s life, her desire to create art, and the difficult choices she makes to live a fulfilling life.

Harmless Like You by Rowan Hisayo Buchanan (Sceptre, £14.99) is out now.
