The Natural Way of Things
by Charlotte Wood

Two young women awaken from a drugged sleep to find themselves imprisoned in a broken-down, nightmarish nightmarish institution in middle of a desert in Charlotte Wood’s new novel. Strangers to each other, where are they, how did they get there and what have they done?

It’s a wonderful yet rare thing to pick up a novel and from the opening pages be so completely enthralled by not just the story on the page but also the extraordinary skill & art at work. Charlotte Wood’s new novel is a triumph and I cannot entreat you enough to read this terrifying, deeply imaginative and starkly real tale. You will be changed.

The Marvels

by Brian Selznick


A new Brian Selznick title is always a cause for excitement and in no way does The Marvels disappoint. This brilliant journey through time in words and pictures is set in two opposing Londons: 1776 and 1990. The two complex and apparentely unconnected stories deftly woven together through gorgeous art and writing – this is a powerhouse of a book.
