The Pigeon Tunnel – John Le Carré
‘The Pigeon Tunnel’, John le Carré’s memoir and his first work of non-fiction, is a thrilling journey into the worlds of his ‘secret sharers’ – the men and women, who inspired some of his most enthralling novels – and a testament to the author’s extraordinary engagement with the last half-century. The reader is swept along not just by the chilling winds of the Cold War or by the author’s frightening journeys into places of terrible violence but, most importantly, by the author’s inimitable voice. In this astonishing work we see our world, both public and private, through the eyes of one of this country’s greatest writers.

Rebel rebel – Jon Gower
A collection of 21 imaginative short stories – this is Jon Gower at his best. He takes us to the four corners of the world and introduces us to fictional and real characters in both fantasy and believable situations.
The stories are colourful and diverse, both in length and theme, with many a famous rebel revered (e.g. David Bowie, Mick Jagger and James Dean).
Etta & Otto & Russell & James – Emma Hooper
Etta is starting to forget. But Otto loves her and if he remembers, then surely they can balance things out? Their neighbour Russell remembers too, but differently – and he still loves Etta as much as he did more than 50 years ago, before she married Otto. Etta’s greatest unfulfilled wish, living in the rolling farmland of Saskatchewan, is to see the sea. And so, at the age of 82, she gets up very early one morning, takes a rifle, some chocolate and her best boots, and begins walking the 2000 miles to the water.
