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.

Auster's first novel in seven years is so many things; a coming of age story, a love letter to New York City, an exploration of the momentous upheavals of the 1960s and an experiment in narrative, all the while striving to tell us something of the state of the nation, as it was then and as it is now. Did I mention it's also stonkingly readable? The long and breathless sentences reminded me of A Little Life or The Secret History, and Archie, the hero of his many lives, is an unforgettable character. This will be the literary event of the winter and deservedly so ‑ what better way to spend those long, dark evenings?

Ed, Charing Cross Road

 

 

 

 

 

This debut is huge on atmosphere and quietly compelling. It’s a coming of age novel in which Sonny’s dreams and hopes are at odds with what life seems to have  in store for him. He forces a change when he falls for an older woman, but the consequences go far beyond even his imaginings. With his striking, luminous prose, Geary is an author to watch.

Frances, Web Editor
