It's amazing how much clarity Varoufakis has shed on such a complex subject. If you want to understand not only the Euro crisis, but the fragility and unfairness at the heart of the global financial system, you must read this book.
Solid, assured prose elevates this novel to a level you don't expect. Quite dark at times, it is not for the faint of heart but the author deftly reveals the interior life of a woman adrift that is surprisingly rewarding.
This debut collection of short fictions and narratives is so witty, raw and insightful that you'll read it again and again!
Beautiful, surreal, often willfully opaque, this is a fantastic work by an arist at the height of his power.
This eclectic collection of short comics is beautiful in every respect. Fantastically well drawn, intelligent, witty and often unbearably personal, it could be the best book I read last year.
In an incredible feat of imagination and stylistic skill, Robinson inhabits the life and thoughts of an unschooled drifter who marries an aging pastor in the third novel set in the town of Gilead, Iowa.
Did you love Mad Men? Of course you did. So do yourself a favour and read this dark and funny exploration of the sordid and tempestuous inner life of an outwardly banal executive in the Sixties.
The beautifully written, heartbreaking story of a disillusioned young spinster and her self-destructive brother. This is my favourite of Robinson's novels set in Gilead, but they're all fantastic.
Part-treatise, part-memoir of a troubled marriage, what begins as a philosophical exploration of the nature and purpose of hotels takes in home, love, marital politics, madness and the Marx Brothers in a witty and insightful stream of associations.
This linguistically ambitious novel uses an invented dialouge that borrows from the vocab, spelling, and syntax of Old English to recreate the world of Saxon Britain in the bloody period after the Norman invasion. Learning to read it is an experience in itself!
