EVERY MAN DIES ALONE
by Hans Fallada
Every Man Dies Alone presents a richly detailed portrait of life in Berlin under the Nazis and tells the sweeping saga of one working-class couple who decides to take a stand when their only son is killed at the front.
by Basma Abdel Aziz
A very real vision of life after the Arab Spring written with dark, subtle intelligence, The Queue describes the sinister nature of authoritarianism, and illuminates the way that absolute authority manipulates information, mobilizes others in service to it, and fails to uphold the rights of even those faithful to it.
BARTLEBY THE SCRIVENER
by Herman Melville
Set in the mid-19th century on New York City’s Wall Street, it was also, perhaps, Melville’s most prescient story: what if a young man caught up in the rat race of commerce finally just said, “I would prefer not to”?
THE DEVIL IN THE FLESH
by Raymond Radiguet
A gem of early twentieth century romanticism! Set in Paris during the First World War, it tells the story of a16-year-old narrator, who falls in love with an older, married woman whose husband is off fighting at the front.
JULIET THE MANIAC
by Juliet Escoria
It’s 1997, and 14-year-old Juliet has it pretty good. But over the course of the next two years, she rapidly begins to unravel, finding herself in a downward trajectory of mental illness and self-destruction. An explosive portrayal of teenage life.
DEAD MEN’S TROUSERS
by irvine Welsh
The gang from Trainspotting have mostly cleaned up their act … until they’re drawn back together to Scotland for one last scheme—a scheme one of them won’t survive. An action-packed, hilarious, and rollicking trip.
DEATH AND THE PENGUIN
by Andrey Kurkov
In the widely hailed prequel to Penguin Lost, aspiring writer Viktor Zolotaryov leads a down-and-out life in poverty-and-violence-wracked Kiev—he’s out of work and his only friend is a penguin, Misha, that he rescued when the local zoo started getting rid of animals.
LE FEMME DE GILLES
by Madeleine Bourdouxhe
Set among the dusty lanes and rolling valleys of rural 1930s Belgium, La Femme de Gilles
is the saga of a young mother, Elisa, whose world is overturned when she discovers that her husband, Gilles, has fallen in love with her younger sister, Victorine. Devastated, Elisa unravels.
by Lars Iyer
The unruly undergraduates at Cambridge have a nickname for their new lecturer: Wittgenstein Jr. He’s a melancholic, tormented genius who seems determined to make them grasp the very essence of philosophical thought. An ambitious novel yet—as impressive, inventive and entertaining as it is extraordinarily stirring.
I AWAIT THE DEVIL’S COMING
by Mary Maclane
In the early 20th century, MacLane’s name was synonymous with sexuality; she is widely hailed as being one of the earliest American feminist authors, and critics at the time praised her work for its daringly open and confessional style. A shocking, brave and intellectually challenging diary of a 19-year-old girl living in Butte, Montana in 1902.
