Marian Finucane Richard Beard The Day That Went Missing Yes, I known Richard Beard 20 years, ever since we studied Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia [UEA] together.
But I never knew that he had lost his younger brother in a Cornwall swimming accident as a child 40 years ago. Faced with drowning himself, he chose to come out of the sea and let louis vuitton alma bag damier his brother drown. His parents subsequently adopted a stiff upper lip, brought the family home for the funeral but then straight back to Cornwall to continue their holiday and they never mentioned the incident again. It almost like a detective novel as Beard decides to learn about his little brother life by interviewing all the key people from that day, including his mother. She wrote a highly successful memoir of her mother and this book talks about how writing such a personal, intimate book affected her and caused her to withdraw from writing. At the same time a mystery woman called enters her life and starts to completely take over her life. She dresses like Delphine, answers her emails, writes a preface on her behalf, claims to have attended the same school as Delphine, and impersonates Delphine [with her permission] at a talk. The [very French] beauty of this book is that we don know if it is fact or fiction but it is utterly compulsive. For Honourable Mention: Richard Ford Between Them I suppose this is a memoir too but Richard Ford is well known as a novelist. He won the Pulitzer Prize for Independence Day. This is an examination of the relationship between his parents written as two long essays, one about his mother and one about his father. They travelled through seven US states a week as part of Ford father job. For 15 years they had an idyllic existence and then Ford figures he was born at a point when they stopped believing they could have children. It a lovely, reflective piece. The story of a girl in Ireland who refuses to eat but is somehow staying alive. A young nurse, Lib, is sent to investigate whether this is a miracle or a fraud. It Emma Donoghue best novel since Room. A literary page turner. The mystery of how the girl stays alive without eating isn solved until the very end. It just out in paperback so perfect for a suitcase And for honourable mention: Min Jin Lee Pachinko (story of how 4 generations of one Korean family were treated in Japan. Set over 80 90 years. I knew nothing about Koreans in Japan but heard good reviews and found it to be a compulsive read. Pachinko is a pinball game and several of the characters worked in a gaming parlour which I suppose is a metaphor for how the Koreans were bounced around in Japanese society. Benjamin Black Prague Nights This book isn out until next week but I am dying to read it. has set this outside of the world of Quirke for the first time. BLURB: Prague, 1599. Christian Stern, a young doctor, has just arrived in the city. On his first evening, he finds a young woman body half buried in the snow.

BLURB: Being on the Murder squad is nothing like Detective Antoinette Conway dreamed it would be. Her partner, Stephen Moran, is the only person who seems glad she there. The rest of her working life is a stream of thankless cases, vicious pranks, and harassment. Antoinette is savagely tough, but she getting close to the breaking point. Their new case looks like yet another by the numbers lovers quarrel gone bad. Aislinn Murray is blond, pretty, groomed to a shine, and dead in her catalogue perfect living room, next to a table set for a romantic dinner. There nothing unusual about her that Antoinette seen her somewhere before. And that her death won stay in its neat by numbers box. Other detectives are trying to push Antoinette and Steve into arresting Aislinn boyfriend, fast. There a shadowy figure at the end of Antoinette road. Aislinn friend is hinting that she knew Aislinn was in danger. And everything they find out about Aislinn takes her further from the glossy, passive doll she seemed to be. Antoinette knows the harassment has turned her paranoid, but she can tell just how far gone she is.

The Most Beautiful: My Life with Prince by Mayte Garcia Mayte Garcia knew Prince better than almost anyone: she was married to him for three years in the 1990s. In this vivid memoir, she tracks back through her time with the late musician, capturing a more human side to the man who gave the world so much pleasure through his music. A clear eyed, compassionate look at a remarkable man. For honourable mention: I Found My Tribe by Ruth Fitzmaurice (not yet published) Ruth Fitzmaurice isn a name well known to the public as of yet, but her non fiction debut deserves to become a major hit when it published in the next few weeks. Fitzmaurice first wrote about it in The Irish Times and was then discovered. It an emotionally resonant, beautifully written work, reminiscent louis vuitton neverfull nm of Joan Didion, which is well worth your time. Sandberg offers tips for moving on and making the best of life: Option B is a patchy, but poignant offering and well worth the purchase price. Adichie thought about it and this pocket sized book, Dear Ijeawele, is her erudite and thoughtful response, which tackles everything from gender roles through to the twinned topics of shame and sexuality. Okay, it a retelling of a Greek tragedy but don baulk: the ninth novel from Colm Toibin might take inspiration from the great louis vuitton bags 1996 stories of yore, but it a visceral and grippingly well told tale. Think Greek heroes remixed with a dash of Game of Thrones, and you there. The Heart Invisible Furies by John Boyne John Boyne latest historical novel might be massive (around 600 pages), but you should bring it on holidays regardless: The Heart Invisible Furies is far too enjoyable to leave behind. Taking place over 70 years, the novel begins in West Cork with the story of Catherine Goggin, a 16 year old expelled by the local priest in 1945 when her pregnancy is discovered. There a Dickensian, soap opera like tone to many of these pages, but probing themes of Irish society and its ills are explored too. Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney (out this week) the debut novel from Rooney, 26, from Castlebar, set to be a major name in fiction; it being published in 12 countries and was snapped up louis vuitton bags dillards at auction by Faber and Faber. It the story of a group of friends, who start having affairs and it like F Scott Fitzgerald mixed with Sheila Heti. Enjoyable and very strong. For honourable mention: Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld Out a while but still selling so well.
A really easy read. An updating of Jane Austen classic Pride and Prejudice novel, in Eligible, Curtis Sittenfeld relocates to Cincinnati in the modern day, but keeps her tale of five unmarried sisters and their broke parents relatively close to the original storyline. With sparky, lively characters, and cracking dialogue, this is a gloriously funny and compelling update.
