Naomi Booth

Naomi Booth is a fiction writer and academic. Her first work of fiction, The Lost Art of Sinking, emerged from research into the literary history of swooning, and won the Saboteur Award for Best Novella 2016 as well as being selected for New Writing North’s Read Regional campaign 2017.

Booth's new novel is Sealed,

Recently I asked the author about what she was reading. Her reply:
I’m currently reading Tentacle by Rita Indiana, and I’ve never read anything quite like it: it imagines a future Santo Domingo after a series of climate crises. The novel’s central character is impoverished and brutalised and made highly vulnerable by events around them—they’re also endlessly creative and energetic and regenerative. This is a supple, surprising, genre-defying novel.
