I came back from holiday to find this tome on my desk, placed there as I was deemed to be the most suitable reader as 'someone who loves David Foster Wallace and Thomas Pynchon'. A quick scan of the back told me I could expect to find an ambitious and bonkers novel, full of thrills, philosophical jousting and mind-bending use of language, all concocted by a debut author with a ferocious knowledge of the New York justice system. If you, like I was, are intrigued and slightly incredulous, I whole heartedly recommend this remarkable debut - you will not be disappointed.

Salter’s first novel in decades is further assurance of his deserved stature in American letters. All That Is tells the story of Philip Bowman, a naval officer who enters the world of publishing in New York in the 1950s. As his career advances, Philip embarks on a series of relationships that take him to Europe and back again, in and out of marriage and love. Known for his controlled and precise prose, the author’s sentences are understated yet evocative, perfectly capturing the quiet joys and sorrows of life. This is a great, intelligent read for the (hopefully long and hot) summer months. - Ed

Tolle’s immensely popular book helps the reader to refocus on something which is actually very simple but which gets lost in the speed or routine of everyday activities. He encourages living in the present, valuing now and the happiness that is to be found in this more centred. Open approach to life. In this sense it’s spiritual and meditative but very readable. - Louisa

When the brilliant professor Philip Philipovich befriends a stray dog Sharik, he has all ingredients to conduct his most groundbreaking operation. He implants human testicles on Sharik, which results in an appalling and intolerable human being who has a penchant for chasing cats. If you can’t make a man out of a human, how do you expect to make a man out of a dog? Inventive and experimental, this book is both entertaining and politically and socially critical, in a proper Bulgakovian style. - Telka

Carson McCullers’ work is timeless and deals with somewhat obscure and grotesque characters. Or are they, really? What does it mean to be different and how does society receive individuals? Probably the most well known story is ‘The Ballad of the Sad Café’, which tells of Miss Amelia, who was once married to violent Marvin Macy. She leads a solitary life until the hunchback Lymon enters her world, claiming to be her cousin. Without giving away too much, this is a story that beautifully demonstrates the frailty of humanity, the fickleness of love and the crushing pain of rejection. - Telka

Tove Jansson is a Finnish author mainly known for writing the Moomin stories. However, I would like to direct your attention towards her fiction. I loved this book because it paints a perfect and intriguing portrait of Scandinavia. Cool and quiet as falling snow, it’s full of nature; it’s so daunting, and yet so inviting as Scandinavia itself. - Telka

A classic bildungsroman, this follows the fortunes of Philip Carey, an orphan brought up by his Aunt and Uncle who struggles to break free from the conventions placed upon him and pursue a life enamoured with the freedom he so desires. Often seen as reflective of Maugham's early years, this is heartfelt and always concerned with the central questions of life. - Edward

Frank O’Hara is a poet who really appeals to me. His aimless wanderings in New York City are recorded in his poems, scribbled down on serviettes and scrap paper during his lunch breaks. These are improvisational, non pre-mediated writings that are so deep and revelatory, with so much charisma and appeal! O’Hara takes us to New York, to his city; he lets us see a world through a poet’s eyes; he offers us intimate insights into a poet’s life and maybe even inspires us to scribble down a poem or two. - Telka
