Charlotte Salomon (1917–1943)



David Foenkinos's novel about the life of artist Charlotte Salomon is a depressingly timely, short, powerful, heart-wrenching book.

‘Sad, beautiful, indignant, wrenching, important . . . It is an artistic privilege and (I think) almost a moral duty that you all read this’ 
Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent

Stay With Me by Ayobami Adebayo


This Nigerian debut is the heart-breaking tale of what wanting a child can do to a person, a marriage and a family; a powerful and vivid story of what it means to love not wisely but too well


‘This deeply impressive novel of infertility, loneliness and longing is the first by the hotly-tipped Adebayo and it packs a tremendous punch’ 
The Daily Mail
