The Small Hand
A superbly chilling ghost story, seductive as it is disquieting, atmospheric and brilliantly suspenseful'
Peel Pie Society
Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
'Charming ... one to lift even the most cynical of spirits'.
‘You'd have to be pretty hard-hearted not to fall under its spell'
Dead Until Dark: A True Blood Novel
‘A great read that will grip you. The characters are believable and the book is a great mixture of paranormal thriller and laugh-out-loud fun.’
True Tales of American Life
‘True Tales of American Life is a collection derived from a project launched by Paul Auster on US National Public Radio. Auster credits his wife with the idea of having listeners send in their own short pieces of true-life writing. Auster has selected 179 pieces from the 4,000 plus he had received.’
'It's difficult to think of a contemporary writer who gives her characters so much dignity ... Fiction of matchless restraint, yet also of rich, complex lives and credible characters'.
‘England, the 1520s. Henry VIII is on the throne, but has no heir. Cardinal Wolsey is his chief advisor, charged with securing the divorce the pope refuses to grant.’
‘Told from the point of view of four different people, this is a very entertaining story about the disillusionment of two young Jamaicans who have high expectations of their 'mother country', only to find that the Britain of the 1940s is a dreary place of hardship and deep-seated prejudice.’
Me Talk Pretty One Day
'Audaciously combining memoir, essay, and what has to be fiction, this fourth collection of short pieces offers pleasures normally to be found only in the best novels and the rare standup act that is actually funny.'
'A spirited update of Bram Stoker's classic, with a vastly ingenious plot in which Dracula has developed a mysterious penchant for librarians ... Kostova is a whiz at storytelling and narrative pace'
Fall of Giants (Century Trilogy 1)
'An epic saga on the grand scale. Spiked with romance and intrigue... This involving historical saga is the perfect read for long winter evenings.'
The Rain Before it Falls
Called "the best English novelist of his generation" by Nick Hornby, Jonathan Coe extends his range in this magnificent account of a Shropshire family in the last half of the twentieth century.
44 Scotland Street
Alexander McCall Smith
‘The characters are engaging and intriguing, and the style of the book keeps you turning the pages. The stories are centred round the residents of a house in Edingburgh, and offer slices of life from a variety of characters whose lives overlap.’
