First performed as a play on Radio 4, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce has hit the One Tree bestsellers list since coming out in paperback. The story of a man walking the length of the country as a way of expressing his grief and coming to terms with the direction his life has taken is expertly told.
One of the strangest of recent top sellers is the 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out Of A Window and Disappeared by the Swedish writer Jonas Jonasson. This picaresque tale is about as far as it is possible to get from the world of Steig Larssonís Dragon Tattoo. He takes us on The Great March via the Manhattan Project and one of Stalinís Gulags to a romp around contemporary Sweden with an elephant and some very strange company. Funny, weird and highly entertaining.
On a more serious note, Joanna Trollopeís latest novel The Soldierís Wife is a bitingly sharp and sympathetic portrait of the damage to a family when the warrior returns from Afghanistan.
Wool first saw the light of day as a short story online. Since then the book has grown into a full length dystopian novel set in the future when the outside world is too toxic for survival and people live inside a giant silo 150 storeys deep into the earth with just a single spiral staircase. Disturbing, engaging and unputdownable.
John Lawton has been hard at work on his Inspector Troy series of novels since Blackout appeared some 15 years ago. Set during the second world war and its aftermath it manages to be both full of intelligence and a dry humour. The latest A Lily Of The Field is his best yet which combines his usual style with a musical background.
