The Slave Ship: A Human History

The End of Mr. Y
(Paperback)
Scarlett Thomas
I emerged from this book blinking, stunned and more than a little high on caffeine. Compulsive, thought-provoking and as down-to-earth as a book about time travel can be, the story follows Ariel, a charmingly messed-up PhD student living in a mouse-infested flat on a diet of cigarettes, coffee and cheap wine. When she stumbles upon a semi-mythical - and supposedly cursed ­ book, the fabled existence of which brought her to her studies in the first place, she can’t resist reading it. The End of Mr Y will sweep you into an intense world of 19th century philosophy, thought experiments and dusty libraries, with just a dash of time travel, nail-biting action and of course, romance. If you can start this book and then concentrate on anything else before finishing it then you’re a stronger person than me. - Lisa

Aberystwyth Mon Amour
(Paperback)
Malcolm Pryce
A darkly comic novel that manages to capture the ambience, tone and snappy dialogue of classic noir fiction, while at the same time creating something unique. Louie Knight is a detective straight out of a Raymond Chandler novel. Only he is not working cases is Los Angeles, but in Aberystwyth! - Tristan.

Christie Malry's Own Double-Entry
(Paperback)
B. S. Johnson
Like so many brilliant but glum numbskulls, B S Johnson killed himself before the rest of us less-brilliant, less-glum numbskulls had a chance to realise what he was. Let me tell you, then: B S Johnson was one of the most furiously original writers that the last century saw. Christie Malry is almost certainly Johnson’s funniest book, in which the eponym adopts a remarkably convincing sort of credit/debit philosophy. This blossoming ideology drives the action of the book from pork pie factory to reservoir and finally on to a somehow satisfying anticlimax. Unlike this review. - Crispin
