Staff picks from Foyles Westfield Stratford
Fourth of July Creek - Smith Henderson.
Pete Snow is a dysfunctional but well-meaning social worker who attempts to help the most vulnerable people in his community. But as he investigates the fundamentalist Pearl family who live in isolation in the Montana forests awaiting the end of the world, Pete's own family life disintegrates around him. This is a dark and foreboding novel examining the effects of poverty and neglect, but it is written with such compassion and an incredible sense of place – it deserves all the plaudits on its cover.
From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler - E.L Konigsburg.
Claudia Kincaid has decided to run away from home, and she's taking her brother Jamie with her. She has everything planned out, from what they'll eat to how they'll do their laundry, and they're headed to live in the perfect place: The Metropolitan Museum of Art. What Claudia doesn't bargain for is getting tangled up in the biggest art mystery of the century. This is a hilarious, absurd, inspiring story. Claudia and Jamie have the adventure and successes that every 11-year-old dreams of (and every 31-year-old still secretly imagines, too). This book will turn 50 this year, and it's just as enthralling and uproarious as ever. Brilliant. I can't recommend it enough.
Coltrane - Ben Ratliff.
Ratliff divides his work on one of jazz's most inscrutable figures into two discrete parts. The first offers a brief and non-sensationalistic biography of Coltrane's early life and hard-won spiritualism. The second employs accessible forms of music theory to unpack the importance of a musical legacy which resonates far beyond the jazz world.
The Rider - Tim Krabbe.
If you've never ridden a cycle race and want to know what it'd be like, read this book. If you have ridden a cycle race and want to relive all that nervous effort and exhaustion, read this book. No other account, fictional or biographical, re-creates so vividly the physical and mental pain involved.
