About the bundle:
Each month, three of our expert booksellers chose a favourite new title to recommend. This month's selection includes a claustraphobic miniature masterpiece, an atmospheric crime novel set in 1950s London, and the best opening page Zoe has read this year...
This bundle includes hardback editions of:
Sarah Moss, Ghost Wall
Eleanor says: 'I really think this book is a masterpiece. The thing that’s so impressive about it for me is how tightly it is put together. It’s a short novel, but there is a lot in it thematically, and a lot going on in terms of plot too. The writing is beautiful, and Moss creates an intense, claustrophobic atmosphere, culminating in a really explosive ending.'
Sarah Perry, Melmoth
Zoe says: 'Melmoth’s is easily the best opening page I’ve read this year – even from the first sentence, I was hooked. For me it’s as much about the atmospheric writing as it is about the plot: the narrative voice is eerie and unsettling, and you feel that, as a writer, Perry is constantly pushing you into the darkness. I loved it.'
Dominick Donald, Breathe
Andrew says: 'Brilliantly set during one of London’s great ‘pea-soupers’, this atmospheric novel is brimming with intrigue. It features a great main character: a copper who is new to the force, struggling to deal with his wartime experiences. Very much ‘of London’, this is a real page-turner.'
