Contemporary novels in Swiss German?

I'm struggling through "Der Goalie bin ig" by Pedro Lenz, in Berndeutsch, which I bought at HB once. Parallel to it I'm using its German translation and its audiobook in dialect.
The problem for me is that it is in Berndeutsch, which I find somewhat harder than the dialect of ZH/AG. This book is also available for kindle.

I'm looking for recommendations for other contemporary novels in dialect. There are many childhood tales, memoirs, etc, but not novels, and, living in Romandie, I cannot just pop into a bookstore and ask for recommendations.

https://www.buchplanet.ch/ki/Dialekt-Mundart-87.html

I don't have any association with the above link, I simply googled "Mundart BŁcher" or as alternative, you can also google "Mundart BŁecher".
