Open City
(Paperback)
Teju Cole
 
A Nigerian man wanders the streets of New York; partly an escape from the strictures of his work, it nevertheless does little to assuage his sense of alienation from the city he now lives in. By traversing the physical and cultural world of the city he tries to comprehend his place in it and understand other people's perceptions at the same time. - Edward

A Naked Singularity
(Hardback)
Sergio De La Pava
 

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.

The Power of Now: A Guide to ...
(Paperback)
Eckhart Tolle
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

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.

The Ballad of the Sad Cafe:...
(Paperback)
Carson McCullers
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

Franny and Zooey
(Paperback)
J. D. Salinger
A funny, moving and terrifyingly erudite look at family life and the burden of being very very clever. Preferably preceded by For Esme with Love and Squalor for an introduction to the characters. Proof that Salinger produced more than just the excellent The Catcher In The Rye. - Jen

The True Deceiver
(Paperback)
Tove Jansson; Ali Smith; Thomas Teal
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

Selected Poems
(Paperback)
Frank O'Hara; Donald Allen
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
