Our staff are a pretty disparate bunch, comprising writers, scientists, students, artists, musicians and academics and yet what they all have in common, apart from their knowledge and experience, is their sheer passion for books. They are the ancient mariners of the book world, except that what they want to pass on is their enthusiasm. Take a wander through their favourites and see why they’ve chosen these particular titles. You can refine your search by combining Staff Picks with Categories or other ‘Browse by’ choices.

 

STAFF PICK OF THE MONTH

Four men meet in college; serious Malcolm, excitable JB, generous Willem and the inscrutable Jude. Their relationships will last through graduate school and the decades beyond, through romance, addiction and trauma. But it is to Jude whom we return time and again, a man whose childhood had nothing childlike in it, who has suffered unspeakably and must fight just to make it through each day as his psychological and physical scars vie for prominence. A book that doesn't look for resolution or redemption-instead it considers the details that make up a life and the endurance sometimes required just to live in it.  Ed, Floor Manager
