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.

Bedlam Stacks cover1859. Quinine, the lifesaving treatment for malaria is dwindling. Merrick Tremayne must venture on a quest to secure a supply of this vital remedy in the distant jungles of Peru. At the town of Bedlam where saints hold sway, and statues creep and sometimes kill, Merrick finds much more than the cinchona trees he seeks. From the author of The Watchmaker of Filigree Street comes an historical novel that skims the realms of fantasy; the only description that fits is astounding.

Cover of Nutshell

Once again Ian McEwan, demonstrates why he is the master of contemporary English fiction with this bold novel told from inside the womb, as an unborn baby listens in on the plot to murder his father. Concise, sharp, and surprising, Nutshell is unlike any murder-thriller novel you may have read before, the language is crisp, yet luxurious, with every word exactly where it should be.
