Welcome to Maxim Jakubowski's world of books... _________________________

It is commonly thought in the book trade that summer is a time for light reading, books that entertain but don't overly disturb our holidaying grey cells. However, there are so many great novels this month that achieve so much more than that and I will not apologize for presenting a selection of tales that will prove challenging, scary, thoughtful and even at times dangerous. Ranging from the Bosnia war crimes to Havana on the eve of revolution and venturing as far as the Galactic edge and somewhat busy beds in North London and way beyond, our novels this time around will tantalise, please, intrigue and keep your senses and imagination on edge. Is there any better excuse for reading?
