Books Received - An Update

17th May, 2017

Listed below are the books received for review since the last update, which was on 31 March 2017.

There are twenty one new titles and eight of them have been written or edited by women, taking our totals for the year so far to seventy books received, twenty four of them with a female by-line (34%).

The corresponding figures for the magazine are forty one titles reviewed and nine of them either written or edited by women (22%).

If all goes to plan, in the next issue of the magazine (#59, out in July) Case Notes will focus on the work of female writers and narrow that gender gap.
