The king of social satire with a tale of gruesome murders linked to the new craze of retracing one’s past through the web – Friends Reunited. He writes beautifully, a very clever man. You must try him. Comparison: Stephen Fry, Rupert Morgan’s Let There Be Lite, David Nobbs.Similar this month: None but do try William Nicholson or William Sutcliffe.
To have or to have not, baby or no baby? Tony Parsons tackles the burning question from the different points of view of three couples and discovers Mother Nature can be one hell of a bitch! Heartwarming, sensitive and oh so true, this is modern living to a tee. Comparison: Nick Hornby, John O’Farrell, John Harding.Similar this month: Matthew Sharpe, Pauline McLynn.
A hip, slick, fast, fun first novel, a romp lampooning the shallow world of daytime television as our rather sad protagonist fights to be recognised.
A powerful tale of crudity and violence as a seventeen year old, recently released from reform school for murdering his abusive foster father, searches for the truth about his real dad. It's raw, moving and tough and interestingly is written by a world famous wrestler.
The Flashman Papers series is one of my favourites. No other series makes me blurt with laughter, raise my eyebrows, or afterwards reach for the history books quite as much as this one. Flashman was the school bully in Tom Brown’s School Days by Thomas Hughes, and here, George Macdonald Fraser takes Flashman and propels him into the centre of a whole host of famous incidents taking place between the 1830’s and 90’s. Flashman is a coward, a scoundrel, and one of the most readable and fascinating characters to be found in literature. He affects history, and can be found in various battles from the Charge of the Light Brigade to Custer’s Last Stand. Highly recommended. Books in The Flashman Papers Series: 1. Flashman 2. Royal Flash 3. Flash for Freedom! 4. Flashman at the Charge 5. Flashman in the Great Game 6. Flashman's Lady 7. Flashman and the Redskins 8. Flashman and the Dragon 9. Flashman and the Mountain of Light 10. Flashman and the Angel of the Lord 11. Flashman and the Tiger 12. Flashman on the March
