Love After Love INGRID PERSAUD

Following the death of his wife, Dominic Ullis escapes to Bombay in search of oblivion and a dangerous new drug, Meow Meow. So begins a glorious weekend of self-destructive misadventure as he tours the teeming, kaleidoscopic city, from its sleek eyries of high-capital to the piss-stained streets, encountering a cast all of whom have a story, but none of whom Ullis – his faculties ever distorted – is quite sure he can trust.

Meet irrepressible Betty Ramdin, her shy son Solo and their marvellous lodger, Mr Chetan. Theirs is an unconventional household, happy in their differences. Happy, that is, until the night when a glass of rum, a heart to heart and a terrible truth explodes the family unit, driving them apart.

Strange Hotel EIMEAR McBRIDE

The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Cartoonist ADRIAN TOMINE

A nameless woman enters a nondescript hotel room. She’s been here before, many years ago. The room hasn’t changed, but she has. From Auckland to Avignon, Oslo to Austin, over the coming years she will occupy a series of hotel rooms, each as featureless and impersonal as the last. But these rooms have rules of their own – how loss is negotiated within them and what boundaries are imposed on the men she sometimes meets.

Through a series of exquisitely observed autobiographical sketches, Adrian Tomine explores his life — from an early moment on the playground being bullied, to a more recent experience, lying on a gurney in the hospital, and having the nurse say ‘Hey! You’re that cartoonist!’ Self-deprecating, honest, and above all else, humorous, Tomine mines his conflicted relationship with comics and writing, animating the absurdities of modern life and how we choose to live it.

Wow, No Thank You SAMANTHA IRBY

The Magicians MARCUS CHOWN

Approaching her 40th year, Samantha Irby confronts the ways her life has changed since the days she could work on 4 hours of sleep, change her shoes and put mascara on, going from drinks to dinner to the club without a second thought.

This is the story of the scientists who, using mathematics, predicted the existence of black holes, invisible waves, ripples in the fabric of space-time, subatomic particles and even antimatter – which other scientists, incredibly, later discovered actually exist. They are ‘The Magicians’, conjuring precise descriptions of our reality where before there was only darkness.

Irby discusses the actual nightmare of living in a rural idyll, body negativity and poses the essential question: sure sex is fun, but have you ever googled a popular meme? B PBO | £8.99 02/04/2020 | 9780571359264

The Rise of the Ultra Runners ADHARANAND FINN

A collection of ingenious and satisfying puzzles drawn from across the ancient and modern world. You will be imprisoned by a sadistic logician; thrown in an arena with a famished lion; and balancing along an ever-expanding elastic band. Implausible scenarios in daily life, perhaps. You'll need to pit your wits against riddles, word problems, visual and logical conundrums. Some solutions will rely on ingenuity, some will challenge you to spot patterns, others call for extreme rationality.

The brutal and challenging sport of ultra running is one of the fastest-growing in the world. But is it an antidote to modern life, or a symptom of a modern illness? Adharanand Finn travelled to the heart of the sport to find out, offering an unforgettable insight into what can be found at the boundaries of human endeavour.

This searing light, the sun and everything else JON SAVAGE

Out Loud MARK MORRIS and WESLEY STACE

The definitive version of the Joy Division story, assembled from three decades’ worth of interviews with the principal players, This Searing Light, the Sun and Everything Else tells of how the band came together in accidental and extraordinary circumstances, how they came to galvanise a generation of fans, artists and musicians with their music, and of how illness and inner demons can rob the world of a visionary singer and lyricist.

From the most brilliant and audacious choreographer of our time, the exuberant tale of a young dancer’s rise to the pinnacle of the performing arts world. With unusual candour and disarming wit, Morris’s memoir captures the life of a performer who broke the mould, a brilliant misfit who found his home in the collective and liberating world of music and dance.

On Midnight Beach MARIE-LOUISE FITZPATRICK It was a hot summer in Donegal in 1976 – the hottest that Emer and her friends Fedelma, Kit and Dog had ever known. It all started with a dolphin swimming into Union Cove bay. At first it was fun sneaking out at night to swim with the dolphin they named Rinn. Soon the whole village knew about Rinn, but then the gang from the next village down the coast got the idea of stealing Rinn. That’s when the trouble really started. Gripping, evocative and with a hugely engaging cast of characters, this is a stunning first young adult novel. B PB | £7.99 06/02/2020 | 9780571355594

Indiana Bones HARRY HEAPE

5TH MAY 2020 Introducing a world of glitz and glamour, debauchery and decadence, where a deadly rivalry threatens to tear the Holtzfall family apart. The younger generation must compete in trials to determine who is most virtuous - and therefore most worthy - of inheriting control of the family, their money, their magic and their influence over the country. But even as the Holtzfalls wage their battles of privilege and power, virtue and vice, something bigger and more sinister bubbles beneath the surface. Behind closed doors, a revolution has begun . .
