June and July 2022 reading list and notes

Recommended: should be read by anyone with any involvement, however peripheral, in child protection cases.

June 22

  • Unfree Speech by Joshua Wong
  • Behind Closed Doors by Polly Curtis
  • Classic Scrapes by James Acaster
  • The Trespasser’s Companion by Nick Hayes
  • My Fourth Time, We Drowned by Sally Hayden
  • Sidesplitter by Phil Wang
  • Do Not Disturb by Michela Wrong
  • Internet for the People by Ben Tarnoff
  • The Premonitions Bureau by Sam Knight

Some absolute corkers this month. Perhaps, interestingly, the bestseller The Premonitions Bureau might be my least favourite. It’s decent but the others are tremendous.
