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.

The Daughter of Time
(Paperback)
Josephine Tey
 
History is chock full of mysteries and I love delving into them. In The Daughter of Time Josephine Tey investigates the recently-in-the-news story of Richard III and the princes in the tower through the research of her bedridden anti-hero Inspector Grant. It’s a battle against hundreds of years of assumption, arguing the case for a figure even Shakespeare wrote as a villain.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of...
(Paperback)
J. K. Rowling
For me, this is the book where the Harry Potter series really took flight. There’s a confidence at work here that lifts the story, which is far darker and more ambitious than in the first two books in the series. The characters are familiar by now, and Rowling puts them through the emotional ringer as she deftly deals with time travel, escaped prisoners and the history of the terrible events at the heart of her story. It’s a beautiful novel that stands alone while also setting up the rest of the series, and a huge achievement.

The Alienist
(Paperback)
Caleb Carr
 
Oh, the suspense! The Alienest by Caleb Carr is set in steamy and corrupt 1890s New York at a time when police investigations were beginning to make use of psychological research and new technologies. The nature of tackling crime is changing, and some proper analysis is required of the team on the case. This book is clever and absolutely compelling.

Great Northern Brotherhood of ...
(Hardback)
Seth
 
Whenever I think I'm trying hard at what I do, I think of Seth and realized that I'm not. Usually devoting himself to somber works of graphic fiction, this extremely fun book mixes his memories and research into real cartoonists with complete nonsense, all revolving around a fictional fraternal order with a distinctly Canadian (and British) tone of camaraderie, gentlemanly competition and arcane knowledge, all somehow coming out strangely moving and warmhearted, not unlike the artist himself.

The Frightened Man
(Paperback)
Kenneth Cameron
 
Deepest, darkest, turn of the century London is the setting for Kenneth Cameron’s The Frightened Man and American Civil War veteran Denton finds himself deep in the middle of a Jack the Ripper style mystery. This novel is in the mould of a classic thriller with a twist and I couldn’t put it down.

Random Family: Love, Drugs, Trouble...
(Paperback)
Adrian Nicole LeBlanc
 
I've been meaning to read this one for a decade. It’s described in a blurb as "A non-fiction Middlemarch of the underclass" – I don’t think I can do much better than that. Concerning a large, chaotic family in the Bronx during the 1990s, it’s an honest account of street life – from drug dealing to child-rearing. Ms LeBlanc spent ten years embedded, interviewing, living with her subjects, listening to them. An extraordinary feat of research and patience. Reading it you are realize that class is a cocoon and you have absolutely zero idea how anybody else is living. I think this book is a masterpiece.

Desperate Characters
(Paperback)
Paula Fox
 
A microscopic exploration of the fault-lines within the marriage of well-off, childless couple, the Bentwoods, in 1970s New York, detonated by a series of bizarre experiences that occur after the wife, Sophie Bentwood is bitten by a cat. Tense and claustrophobic, it is nevertheless packed with black humour and startlingly fresh dialogue, that shows all too well how both husband and wife have been numbed by marriage.
