Sally Rooney Conversations With Friends

Inez Baranay Local Time: A memoir of cities, friendships and the writing life

‘One last look at Europe’ — that was the idea behind a three-month trip in 2006, which led to a life of unanchored travels. New York, London, Bristol, Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Barcelona all have a chapter devoted to them, and Rome has more. Other chapters explore themes like sexuality, identity, family secrets, the self fiction creates, ageing, the history of friendships, and a life in which writing has been the centre.

Scott Westerfield, Margo Lanagan, Deborah Bancotti Swarm: Zeroes #2

It’s the holiday season, but the celebration at the Zeroes’ underground nightclub is blown apart when two strangers with new powers take to the dance floor. The Zeroes pursue them, only to discover that they’re fleeing an even more sinister power-wielder, Swarm. Meanwhile the Zeroes also have their own issues to deal with before they can reach the dramatic showdown.

Eowyn Ivey To the Bright Edge of the World

Set in Alaska at the end of the 19th century, this is a story of discovery. Lieutenant Colonel Allen Forrester is charged to navigate Alaska’s hitherto impassable Wolverine River with only a small group of men. Forrester leaves behind his newly pregnant young wife, who does not relish the prospect of a year in a military barracks while her husband carves out a path through the wilderness. Their year apart will demand every ounce of courage and fortitude from both of them.
