The Dinner
(Paperback)
Herman Koch
 
Yes, it’s about a dinner at a restaurant in Amsterdam, where two couples meet to discuss the behaviour of their teenage sons. I’ll say no more about the story, but it very quickly becomes a no-holds-barred compelling family drama, with flashes of humour and a number of unsettling revelations. It would have been interesting to have been a fly on the wall at this dinner!

Embellished: New Vintage
(Hardback)
Karen Nicol
 
This is a very new book, but already one of my favourites. Karen’s distinguished career has included working with designers, exhibiting her own textile art and teaching students. In this very modern and stylish book, she explains how thrifted finds and ancient sewing and embroidery techniques inform her work. It’s a stylish guide to the power and possibilities of textiles and has made me excited about sewing all over again.

(Paperback)
E. L. Konigsburg
 
A modern classic in the States, something of a cult title in the UK, this is a lovely tale of Claudia, who runs away from home, taking her little brother with her. And where do they end up? The Metropolitan Museum of Art, of course…

Beautiful Ruins
(Paperback)
Jess Walter
 
There’s a quote on the front of the paperback edition ascribed from my rave review of the book in The Times, describing it as 'very very funny'. And it is. But it also has brilliant dialogue: the last book I read with dialogue so crisp was David Nicholl’s One Day. And actually Beautiful Ruins is like One Day in other ways: it wears its cleverness and ingenuity very lightly and has a powerful emotional pull. My book of the year.

Austerlitz
(Paperback)
W. G. Sebald; Anthea Bell; James Wood
 
Sebald, a German who lived in England, looks at the war and the persecution of minorities in a highly original and fascinating way, even including his own rather amateurish photographs and postcards in the text to devastating effect.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A...
(Paperback)
Hunter S. Thompson; Ralph Steadman
This is pure adrenaline- (and other substances) fuelled literary chaos – the pinnacle of Thompson’s gonzo style that he developed as a journalist for Rolling Stone. It’s theoretically an account of he and his lawyer attending a motorcycle race in Las Vegas, but in reality it’s nothing less than an anarchic, mind-bending peek inside the carnage that Thompson caused wherever he went, full of bad people and worse drugs, hallucinations and violence and destruction, described in some of the most distinctive prose ever committed to a page by a true literary genius. Completely indispensable.

The Cat in the Hat
(Paperback)
Dr. Seuss
I couldn’t put together a list of my favourite books without including a Dr Seuss. To be honest you could swap The Cat in the Hat for Fox in Socks, The Lorax, or any Dr Seuss, but The Cat in the Hat is the first one I reach for when only Seuss will do (I have days like that). I like the limited colour palette, but it’s the rhyming, slightly anarchic story that I love.

Complete Stories
(Paperback)
Flannery O'Connor
Every sentence in O'Connor is about character. In 'Everything That Rises Must Converge', for instance, Julian is a model for what a divided protagonist can be: he can never speak of the old family mansion without contempt nor think of it without longing. As in Faulkner, O'Connor's characters are driven by race and class, many of them longing for a return to the Old South, but in O'Connor, the battle is more desperate and vicious. She's the writer that every American short story writer has to contend with.

The Secret Agent
(Paperback)
Joseph Conrad
 
This 1907 novel is about terrorists and the attempts of the authorities to deal with them. The subtitle is 'A Simple Tale' but the manner of telling and the motives of those involved are anything but simple. Conrad offers penetrating insights into the minds of those who use terror - including an early 'suicide bomber' - but chillingly reveals the corruption of democracy that such methods tend to bring about.

There Was a Country: A Personal...
(Paperback)
Chinua Achebe
 
Chinua Achebe died recently. He was by a long way Africa’s finest novelist, and a substantial figure in Nigeria. This book is his last, his account of the Biafran war, when his people, the Igbo, suffered terribly. It is also a fascinating account of his upbringing and literary education.

The Hound of the Baskervilles
(Paperback)
Arthur Conan Doyle
 
'The Hound of the Baskervilles' is the story of the curse of the Baskervilles and the immense hound roaming Dartmoor, the presage of death. This favourite novel brilliantly uses the vast and mysterious moor to heighten the suspense. The storytelling never falters and the horror and mystery of the hound has enthralled generations after generations.
