Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Young Adult), by Niamh
Lily is a young Chinese American girl struggling to figure out her identity in 1950s San Francisco. Once she attends the Telegraph Club with classmate Kath, the questions that have been brewing under the surface come to the forefront of her mind - is it possible, in real life, for two women to fall in love? This beautiful book examines the trials and tribulations of coming of age as a young queer person in the 50s, and of the anti-Asian discrimination that permeates the lives of many Asian Americans in their daily lives. Giving light to the stories often swept under the carpet, this book will break you down and build you back up page after page.

'A gripping novel where historical fiction meets romance, Last Night at the Telegraph is a whirlwind read... Immersive and creative.' - Gay Times

'Lo's writing . . . shimmers with the thrills of youthful desire. A lovely, memorable novel' - Sarah Waters, author of Tipping the Velvet and The Night Watch.

'An instant classic, the finest LGBTQIA+ romance I've read in ages.' - Bill Konigsberg, award-winning author of The Music of What Happens and The Bridge

From the award winning author of Ash comes a gripping story of love and duty set in San Francisco's Chinatown during the 1950s.

Seventeen-year-old Lily Hu can't remember exactly when the question took root, but the answer was in full bloom the moment she and Kathleen Miller walked under the flashing neon sign of a lesbian bar called the Telegraph Club.

America in 1954 is not a safe place for two girls to fall in love, especially not in Chinatown. Red-Scare paranoia threatens everyone, including Chinese Americans like Lily. With deportation looming over her father - despite his hard-won citizenship - Lily and Kath risk everything to let their love see the light of day.
