MetaMAUS
(Hardback)
Art Spiegelman
 
I thought that my generation was doing pretty well following Art's example of how to make serious comic books for adults, but this book demonstrates just how pale and paltry our efforts have been; via interviews, documents, photographs and preparatory sketches (and an interactive DVD) it's clear that Art not only created the graphic novel, but that graphic novel may also never be bettered.

Tom-All-Alone's
(Paperback)
Lynn Shepherd
 
Reading The Solitary House will make you grateful for contemporary plumbing. In between these pages you’ll be right in the thick of all the grime and gristle of 1850s London with sleuth Charles Maddox. It isn’t often a pretty sight, but it is a captivating one. Referencing Dickens and Wilkie Collins, this novel a special treat for book nerds like me.

The Testament of Mary
(Paperback)
Colm Toibin
 
The power of this short, perfectly executed book lies in its disarming simplicity. For all its daring and imaginative feats, it is the account of a mother’s grief – the loss, the anger, the searing human spectacle of it – that makes it such a singular achievement.

The Lowland
(Hardback)
Jhumpa Lahiri
 
I made the mistake of reading some Lahiri when I was writing my new book and it made me want to give up entirely. I don’t know why anyone else even bothers to write when there is talent like this in the world – she is lucid in a way that is completely impossible to dissect. And this book comes close to poetry in places. Hope it wins the Booker.

Harvest
Foyalty52Special Offer
(Paperback)
Jim Crace
 
The pull of the land and the need to belong to something bigger than oneself infuse this thoughtful, thrilling novel with a timelessness that consoles the reader even as the menacing shadows of mistrust and xenophobia close in. An author at the top of his game, probing urgent, universal questions with great empathy and peerless skill.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette?
(Paperback)
Maria Semple
 
This is a very funny, clever, modern epistolary novel. The majority of it is told via emails, newspaper articles, school reports, letters, notes and so on. I loved this book, the twisting story and the addictive eccentric characters. Reading it feels like watching the most fantastic film. You are totally engrossed.

A Foreign Country
(Paperback)
Charles Cumming
 
This is an espionage thriller that grips right from the start. Charles Cumming, author of five previous novels, has a keen sense of character and pacing, and he always brings something interesting and new to the genre. His 2011 novel, The Trinity Six, was an absorbing look at the Cambridge spy ring, and in this new novel the first female head of MI6 has disappeared six weeks before she is to take on the job, and a disgraced MI6 officer is given the chance to redeem himself by finding her. In the meantime, it is imperative that her disappearance remains a secret. Thrilling stuff.

Freedom
Foyalty42Special Offer
(Paperback)
Jonathan Franzen
 
Like Middlemarch inasmuch as this is a lengthy novel about love and marriage that is also deeply engaged with what the author considers the major political issues of the era (here the 'freedom loving' Bush years): the liberal burden in the age of American empire; planetary overpopulation; and the plight of a songbird called the cerulean warbler.

The Complaints
(Paperback)
Ian Rankin
'The Complaints' is the second Ian Rankin novel since John Rebus, his police hero, retired in 'Exit Music', and Inspector Malcolm Fox, the hero of "The Complaints", shares Rebus's integrity and a dogged determination to get the job done. 'The Complaints' is the colloquial name for the section dedicated to detecting the most serious police offences and this Fox does with honesty and persistence, accepting that to work in The Complaints can make you a pariah to your colleagues. Rankin is a master at the integration of setting, plot, characters and the theme, which, for Rankin, is the moral dimension never far from his writing.

The Pale King
(Paperback)
David Foster Wallace
 
The first great novel of the 21st century uses the sinister beauty of the American Tax Code as a springboard from which to launch into a genuinely serious discussion of the origins and importance of civic responsibility amidst the hazy, blurred stupidity of a country in quick decline. Contrary to many reviews, I don't think it's about boredom, and it's certainly not boring. Another posthumous editor-to-manuscript resuscitation, the book hangs heavy with the clotted spectre of Wallace's suicide, which makes the writing glow all the more painfully through it.

This Is How You Lose Her
(Paperback)
Junot Diaz
 
I’ve been obsessed with Junot Diaz ever since I picked up The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. I think he is the most original voice to have appeared in the last decade. As it happens, I was initially wary of this collection of short stories just because it was so slim. It seemed cheeky to charge so much for so few words. But it totally blew my mind. Funny and moving and incredibly modern – the last story was so good that, as soon as I finished, I read it again.

Field Grey: A Bernie Gunther Novel
(Paperback)
Philip Kerr
 
I've been a fan of Bernie Gunther ever since the Berlin Trilogy. After a long gap, I caught up with him again in The One from the Other in 2006, and now I’m moving at a leisurely pace with, I think, still two more books in hand before the next one is published. Field Grey is set in a number of locations before and after the Second World War, but mostly it concerns events during the fall of France and the beginnings of the German occupation in 1940. In this, it mirrors the era of Suite Française, though it’s a completely different kind of story. Bernie Gunther is an ex-cop turned private eye, and his capacity for surviving tyrannical regimes whilst retaining most of his integrity is awe-inspiring! He's also a witty, wise-cracking PI, likely to make exactly the kind of remark that will earn him another twist of the thumbscrews. Philip Marlow takes on the Nazis.

The Secret History
(Paperback)
Donna Tartt
This was one of the first novels where I remember being genuinely aware of the brilliance of the writing as I was reading it – there are sentences and paragraphs that still take my breath away now, despite the number of times I’ve read it. It’s a long, slow, relentless novel – a beautifully drawn mystery woven through a painfully moving story of class, classics and what it means to belong, carried along by a group of the most unforgettable characters you’ll ever come across.
