The Power of Now: A Guide to ...
(Paperback)
Eckhart Tolle
Tolle’s immensely popular book helps the reader to refocus on something which is actually very simple but which gets lost in the speed or routine of everyday activities. He encourages living in the present, valuing now and the happiness that is to be found in this more centred. Open approach to life. In this sense it’s spiritual and meditative but very readable. - Louisa

The Ballad of the Sad Cafe:...
(Paperback)
Carson McCullers
Carson McCullers’ work is timeless and deals with somewhat obscure and grotesque characters. Or are they, really? What does it mean to be different and how does society receive individuals? Probably the most well known story is ‘The Ballad of the Sad Café’, which tells of Miss Amelia, who was once married to violent Marvin Macy. She leads a solitary life until the hunchback Lymon enters her world, claiming to be her cousin. Without giving away too much, this is a story that beautifully demonstrates the frailty of humanity, the fickleness of love and the crushing pain of rejection. - Telka

Franny and Zooey
(Paperback)
J. D. Salinger

The True Deceiver
(Paperback)
Tove Jansson; Ali Smith; Thomas Teal
Tove Jansson is a Finnish author mainly known for writing the Moomin stories. However, I would like to direct your attention towards her fiction. I loved this book because it paints a perfect and intriguing portrait of Scandinavia. Cool and quiet as falling snow, it’s full of nature; it’s so daunting, and yet so inviting as Scandinavia itself. - Telka

(Paperback)

The rise and fall and rise again of Lev, a man searching for a new life and opportunities in Britain straight from Eastern Europe. A very humane portrait of a modern immigrant, tenderly drawn, funny and much like a modern fable. One of the best novels I read in 2008. - Rachael

W. Somerset Maugham
A classic bildungsroman, this follows the fortunes of Philip Carey, an orphan brought up by his Aunt and Uncle who struggles to break free from the conventions placed upon him and pursue a life enamoured with the freedom he so desires. Often seen as reflective of Maugham's early years, this is heartfelt and always concerned with the central questions of life. - Edward

The Diving Pool
(Paperback)
Yoko Ogawa; Stephen Snyder
These dark, elegant and disturbing three novellas posses strange beauty which draw you in and don't let go. First they introduce you to a teenager who falls for her foster brother and secretly indulges in cruelty, then continues to journey through peculiar pregnancy and finally climaxes with a story as dark and teasing as the first two novellas. Nothing is as it seems and the sublime beauty of the writing gives you a pleasurable read which tingles in the mind long after. - Telka
