‘a blistering collage of revolution, sisterhood and joythere are more things illuminates the societal structures that ensnare us and captures the exuberance and heartache in longing for a better world
Jessica Andrews, author of SALTWATER

‘Yara Rodrigues Fowler brilliantly brings to life lives lived freely and fully. I couldn’t put it down’
Amelia Horgan, author of LOST IN WORK

there are more things is a novel about two women – Melissa and Catarina.

Born to a well-known political family in Olinda, Brazil, Catarina grows up in the shadow of her dead aunt, Laura. Melissa, a South London native, is brought up by her mum and a crew of rebellious grandmothers.

In January 2016, Melissa and Catarina meet for the first time, and, as political turmoil unfolds across Brazil and the UK, their friendship takes flight. Their story takes us across continents and generations – from the election of Lula to the London riots to the darkest years of Brazil’s military dictatorship.

there are more things builds on the unique voice of Yara’s debut to create a sweeping novel about history, revolution and love. In it we see sisterhood and queerness, and, perhaps, glimpse a better way to live.
