If there’s a theme to this month’s offering of British books being published in the US, it’s challenge. There’s the challenge of fighting the patriarchy. There’s the challenge of dealing with the internet and the surprising and sometimes dark world it opens up, and the challenge of imagining a world in which teen girls hold the power. There’s a literary memoir to help us with the challenges life throws at us and a novel exploring the challenge of being stuck with our families. But it’s October, so here’s to enjoying these sometimes scary things snuggled under a duvet, sipping hot chocolate.
