Happy people to whom nothing happens are generally not the focus for novelists. Meet three authors whose characters grapple with abandonment, secret pasts, loneliness, shameful national history and reconciliation. Rowan Hisayo Buchanan’s debut novel, sold after a fierce six-way auction with publishers, is heralded by Lorrie Moore as “cause for celebration.” Ashley Little has followed up her IMPAC Dublin-nominated Anatomy of a Girl Gang with the story of 11-year-old Tucker on an epic search for his father across mid-90s America. And fans of Elena Ferrante will be delighted by Italy’s Francesca Melandri, whose bestselling novel Eva Sleeps, follows a woman searching for truth about her origins. It is soon to be a film, and has been translated into German, French, Dutch and English.
