The Heart of the Matter
(Paperback)

Often featured in lists of the most important books of the 20th century, it owes much to Green's Roman Catholic upbringing and his experiences as an intelligence officer in Sierra Leone.

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.

In the Footsteps of Mr. Kurtz: Living...

White Egrets
(Paperback)
Derek Walcott
 
A late masterpiece by one of the finest poets at work in the English language. The mode is elegy, but the freshness and verve of the vocabulary belies that mode at every turn. This book is full of life, and winning the Nobel has not dulled Walcott’s pen in the least.

Philip Larkin: Letters to Monica
(Paperback)
Anthony Thwaite; Philip Larkin
 
These letters were found after the death of Larkin’s long-time girlfriend Monica Jones in 2001, and consist of nearly two thousand letters, postcards and telegrams, from 1946 to 1984. The letters are affectionate; self deprecating and often funny. And though we don’t get Monica’s side, there are footnotes to explain some background - such as Larkin’s affair with Maeve Brennan. Larkin's love for certain writers, alcohol, music (jazz) comes across and mingles with the mundane.

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.

Resurrection Man
(Paperback)
Eoin McNamee
 
There are two modern American masters who have captured my writing imagination like few others — Don DeLillo and Cormac McCarthy. In this dark and dangerous novel, Eoin McNamee fuses a similar respect for these two greats but adds something meaty and Irish of his own. Resurrection Man is a crime novel of sorts, a riveting, lean, disturbing tale of the violence wrought by UVF gang, the Shankill Butchers. They are led by the inimitable Victor Kelly, who prowls Belfast like a shark in his Ford Capri. This is a novel about the rhythms of sectarian violence: McNamee gives the Troubles a chilling, brutal relentlessness, while his Belfast is a hate-filled inferno. The writing is full of the oracular but it cuts to the bone.
