Shaun Bythell The Diary of a Bookseller

The Bookshop, Wigtown, is Scotland’s largest second-hand bookshop. It’s a booklover’s paradise, full of twisting corridors and set in a beautiful town by the sea. Behind the scenes, things are very different, and Shaun Bythell, the shop’s owner, recounts a life beset with malfunctioning heating, eccentric customers, bad-mannered, bin-foraging employees and a perennially empty till.

Peter Yeldham The Last Double Sunrise

Forced to join the Italian Army when Mussolini declares war, would-be art student Carlo is captured in North Africa and becomes a POW. Despite his captivity, Carlo sketches and paints across three continents and several oceans, finding unexpected mateship, beauty and love among the hardships of World War II.

Ali Alizadeh The Last Days of Jeanne d’Arc

‘The English call her Joan of Arc … Her heart has been broken. Her heart cannot be burnt. This is her story, and the story of her beloved.’ This reimagining of Jeanne’s story — the young woman who heard the voices of saints and led the French armies against the English — weaves together multiple perspectives to illuminate her as a figure of history, myth and obsession.

Virginia Russell The Illegitimate Adventures of a Theatrical Eccentric

Mark Melford was an actor in Queen Victoria’s England. He was also a prolific writer for the stage, a master of the 20-minute music hall sketch and an adventurer in the emerging world of silent films. A self-confessed crank and occasional genius, he lived through a vibrant period in British theatre — a time of great social, technological and political change.
