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.

Nobody writes quite like Nell Zink. Nicotine is full of deathly dry humour, with mordant questions about family and politics. Yet the beating heart of the book is in the study of families, their compromises and the imperfect, awkward and inconvenient love they share.

Told in the same stream-of-consciousness style that was the hallmark of McBride’s debut, A Girl is a Half-formed Thing, this brave and intimate novel charts an affair between a young drama student newly arrived in London from Ireland and an older actor. Full of sex and passion, guilt and shame, this is a heady and memorable reading experience that will leave you longing for more.
