Susanna Clarke author of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell won the 2021 Women's prize for Fiction. Her new book Piranesi tells the story of Piranesi, who lives in a place called the House. The House is occupied by only two living people, Piranesi and a man whom he refers to as "the Other". Piranesi works with the Other in search for "A Great and Secret Knowledge" hidden within the House. Piranesi records his life and activities in detailed entries in his journals. Eventually, he begins to notice the Other's strange statements and words, and inconsistencies in his own journals, and proof of the existence of more people. These occurrences all call into question his understanding of the world in which he lives. An intriguing book.

From one of today’s brilliant and beloved novelists, a dazzling, epic family saga set across a half-century spanning World War I, the rise of Hitler, World War II, and the Cold War.

Tóibín explores the heart and mind of Thomas Mann a talented writer whose life is driven by a need to belong and the anguish of illicit desire. The Magician is an intimate, astonishingly complex portrait of Mann, his magnificent and complex wife Katia, and the times in which they lived—the first world war, the rise of Hitler, World War II, the Cold War, and exile. 

One for my Christmas list...

For the Sally Rooney fans another treat... Alice, a novelist, meets Felix, who works in a distribution warehouse, and asks him if he'd like to travel to Rome with her. In Dublin, her best friend Eileen is getting over a break-up, and slips back into flirting with Simon, a man she has known since childhood.

Alice, Felix, Eileen and Simon are still young-but life is catching up with them. They desire each other, they delude each other, they get together, they break apart. They have sex, they worry about sex, they worry about their friendships and the world they live in. Are they standing in the last lighted room before the darkness, bearing witness to something? Will they find a way to believe in a beautiful world?

 





A fun book for the children and adults in your life who enjoy words and beautiful illustrations.
 
This is the story of a woman who was banished to an asylum by her husband for three years. She wrote books about her experience and campaigned successfully against laws that allowed husbands to lock up their wives without trial. 

Moore the author writes that she wanted to look at the ways that women have been dismissed as "crazy" throughout history. But most of the stories she read were painfully bleak. In Packard, Moore found an ideal hero, one with a "spirit as wide as her skirt" who not only fought the system but won.
