lovers: help me find books with great, natural British English dialogue. As an American, I'd like to get a sense of how UK adults (mid 20s/30s) of different backgrounds talk to each other (in books) for my own work. Bonus points for crime/mystery/thriller genres. Short stories are also a plus.

For me Care of the Soul was not intended as an easy, quick guide to solving lifes problems but the start of a deep exploration of the soul If we neglect our souls, we lose both our humanity and our individuality and risk becoming more like our machines When we do notice the condition of our souls, life problems ease and sometimes go away.
Thomas Moore, Care of the Soul: A Guide for Cultivating Depth and Sacredness in Everyday Life

Back in 2023, my husband sat down and magically, a whole bunch of stories appeared. Then he decided, you know what Lets make it a whole dang book, and asked me to create a painting for him.

It's eleven stories of super powers and what cost they incur, each adding to the bigger picture.

He's got e-book, signed books, as well as book boxes that include a print of the painting used for the cover!

"When I asked a friend about the Surrealist dimension in contemporary poetry, he texted me a photo of a sign in an elevator he happened to be in: When fire hat is lit, return cab to lobby. Today the fire hat is always lit, the cab simply rumbles on, and almost no one notices. It is normal.
This points to the greatest difference between then and now."

Planned to avoid social media the rest of the day. After finishing Little Heaven by Nick Cutter, finding myself in need of a distraction so I dont dream about it tonight. Similar writing style as Stephen King, but more intense/disturbing. Whew!

THE WORLD OF 1950s BOMBAY comes alive in this story of twin sisters trying to follow their own dreams and meet the expectations of their very proper Punjabi family, still unsettled by the violence of Partition. Lovely, rich saga. A MINUS

From Tori Tsui book
Climate justice activist Dominique Palmer also weighs in on how the popularisation of sole individuals can exclude most vulnerable communities:

The power dynamics that result from having one person upheld can be dangerous. It can make a lot of people feel like their work isn't valued or appreciated, especially for people of colour who often feel like their activism and the pain they're experiencing isn't heard or valued. That inevitably causes a lot of hurt and trauma for people. A lot of it's due to the media because they want to sensationalise one person by saying "Look!
This one young girl is leading the charge and she's doing all of this on her own!" rather than actually looking at the movement, because that isn't a headline to them. And it's not what we need and it's not representative of the truth.
It can also make people believe that there's only one way to do activism.
