The Cat's Table by Michael Ondaatje (9780224093620) | Page & Blackmore Booksellers

As the ship makes its way across the Indian Ocean, through the Suez Canal, into the Mediterranean, the boys become involved in the worlds and stories of the adults around them, tumbling from one adventure and delicious discovery to another, 'bursting all over the place like freed mercury'.

Book One, Book Two and Book Three by Haruki Murakami (9781846555497) | Page & Blackmore Booksellers

At 950 pages it isn’t a slight work and I have the feeling that he may have dispensed with the services of an editor but, nonetheless, I’d happily have read on and on and… Tim. It’s spooky and fascinating and I’m finding it really hard to move on, I’m living in an alternative Murakami world. I’ve just finished 1Q84 books one, two and three by Haruki Murakami.


The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman (9780857205438) | Page & Blackmore Booksellers

Based on this tragic and iconic event, Hoffman's novel is a spellbinding tale of four extraordinarily bold, resourceful, and sensuous women, each of whom has come to Masada by a different path. Revka, a village baker's wife, watched the horrifically brutal murder of her daughter by Roman soldiers; she brings to Masada her young grandsons, rendered mute by what they have witnessed.


Pigeon English by Stephen Kelman (9781408810637) | Page & Blackmore Booksellers

The second best runner in the whole of Year 7, Harri races through his new life in his personalised trainers - the Adidas stripes drawn on with marker pen - blissfully unaware of the very real threat all around him. Pigeon English is written in the voice of a young Ghanaian boy living with his mother and sister in the ‘safety’ of a London tower block while they wait for his father to arrive from Ghana.
