The news is out - #darkpines by @willrdean has been picked for the inaugural #zbos (@zoetheball book club). Why was it picked? The judges said “Scandi noir is extremely popular, so we were delighted to find this debut novel by British author, Will Dean, that will stand up to the giants of the genre. Tuva being deaf adds to the fear factor. Tune in to @itv to see the dark forests of Sweden brought to grisly life... 🌲
Eugene Vodolazkin's prose (and Lisa Hayden's translation) will give you actual shivers, all right. 📸 : @elizabday
Out today in paperback - #Siracusa by @deliaephron. 🌊 New Yorkers Michael, a famous writer, and Lizzie, a journalist, travel to Italy with their friends from Maine - Finn; his wife, Taylor; and their daughter, Snow. From the beginning,” says Taylor, it was a conspiracy for Lizzie and Finn to be together.” Told Rashomon-style in alternating points of view, the characters expose and stumble upon lies and infidelities past and present. Snow, ten years old and precociously drawn into a far more adult drama, becomes the catalyst for catastrophe as the novel explores collusion and betrayal in marriage.
#ThreeEnvelopes by Nir Hezroni has arrived in paperback! 🕶 When a top agent in the Organisation receives a disturbing notebook written by the mysterious agent 10483, supposedly long dead, he realises something is terribly wrong. Is 10483 a psychopath who outwitted his handlers for years? Or was he manipulated by his superiors to carry out a lethal and top-secret operation involving some of the most monstrous assassinations in the history of the state of Israel? And why did he receive three envelopes containing targeted killing assignments, instead of the one received by all the other agents? 🕶 Compelling and terrifying in equal measure, Hezroni's dark thriller is a chilling exploration of the mind of a master killer.
'#Grace is a moving work of lyrical and at times hallucinatory beauty' @washingtonpost 'A profound and unusual coming-of-age story' @sundaytimes 🌿 Paperbacks of @Grace by Paul Lynch have now arrived at the office. Coming to bookshops near you from 7th June. 🌿 Winter is closing in and Ireland is in the grip of famine. Early one October morning, Grace's mother snatches her from sleep, brutally cuts her hair and tells her: 'You are the strong one now.' Her mother fits her up in men's clothes and casts her out, as she is no longer safe at home. With her younger brother Colly in tow, the two set off on a remarkable journey against the looming shadow of their country's darkest hour.

Proofs of #ourwomaninhavana by #sarahrainsford have reached the office. 🇨🇺 From inside this tightly controlled one-party state, Sarah Rainsford, the BBC's 'woman in Havana' for three years, reports on lives shaped by Fidel Castro's giant social experiment and how the nation feels as the six-decade rule of the Castros comes to an end. Seeking a window into pre-revolutionary Cuba, she searches for the ghosts of Graham Greene's Havana and the paths walked by other visiting writers hooked on a city where 'every vice was permissible.' Through all these stories and those still being told, Our Woman in Havana weaves an enthralling, atmospheric portrait of this enigmatic country as it teeters, once more, at a historic crossroads.
Floating into the office this week is #TheBiggerers by Amy Lilwall. 📚 'We are here with Dr Peetzwelt, deputy head genetic engineer at Billbridge & Minxus, who is going to clear up several ideas surrounding a fairly controversial topic,' said the microphone man. 'Dr Peetzwelt, there has been much speculation over the origins of these fascinating little creatures. Obviously, the first word to appear on the lips of conspiracy theorists is clo-' Dr Peetzwelt snapped his index finger down from his lips. 'Yes, goodness, don't say it out loud! It's best that we avoid that word completely, I think.' He smiled with his mouth. . 'To clarify, cloning is illegal.' . 'Largely illegal, yes.'
