The Bookshelf February 2019 Edition

By Stella Nicholls

February, traditionally the month of ‘love’ where flowers and chocolates and all sorts of tasty nibbles are exchanged.  Why not add a good book into the mix too? The Bookshelf February 2019 Edition brings a few recommended by people in our community.

Black and white book cover for A Little Life

A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara

Recommended by Polly McLachlan – Owner and founder of Crane and Kind

Described as an astonishing, challenging, upsetting, and profoundly moving book. An epic about love and friendship in the twenty-first century that goes into some of the darkest places fiction has travelled and yet somehow improbably breaks through into the light.

Flowers and meat on the book cover of The Vegetarian for Bookshelf February 2019 Edition

The Vegetarian by Han Kang

Recommended by Polly McLachlan – Owner and founder of Crane and Kind

Fraught, disturbing and beautiful, The Vegetarian is a novel about modern day South Korea, but also a novel about shame, desire and our faltering attempts to understand others.

Clouds on the book cover of The Berlin Noir Series

The Berlin Noir Series by Philip Kerr

Recommended by Kerry Hutchinson – Founder of Kerry Voice

Kerry’s favourite books are any ‘Bernie Gunther’ novel, written by the late Philip Kerr.  We have chosen a collection of the first three thrillers, March Violets, The Pale Criminal and A German Requiem.

We hope you enjoyed The Bookshelf February 2019 Edition; look out for next month’s recommended reads from our local business community.
