Costa First Novel Book Award Winner 2017

In this story we meet Eleanor Oliphant, a thirty year old office worker with a rigid routine of the same food, clothes and activities week after week. Her weekends are spent shut away in her flat with two bottles of vodka and no reason to speak to anyone other than the occasional caller asking if she’s been miss-sold PPI. Known as a bit of an oddball around the office, Eleanor often finds that others look uncomfortable when she speaks to them, but she puts it down to their poor social skills and bad manners. But when a chance encounter throws Eleanor and a new colleague in IT together, a tentative and platonic friendship slowly develops that threatens to tear down the walls that Eleanor has built around herself. Maybe Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine; but is ‘fine’ enough?

Richard and Judy Book Club - How to Stop Time

Time travel takes on a whole new meaning in Richard and Judy Book Club pick How to Stop Time by Matt Haig. Tom Hazard (just one of his many names) has a rare condition which means, for every fifteen years, he ages just one, so he might look 40 but he’s actually 439. From Elizabethan England to Jazz Age Paris, he’s seen the world change drastically over the last four centuries and met some famous faces along the way, including Shakespeare and F. Scott Fitzgerald. The one thing he mustn’t do is fall in love, but what is life without it? Captivating and compelling, How to Stop Time is about learning to live.

Richard and Judy Book Club - The Heart's Invisible Furies

For Book Club readers who enjoy epic stories that have swept across the globe and generations, including those by previous Richard and Judy authors such as William Boyd, Maggie O’Farrell and Anne Tyler, The Heart’s Invisible Furies is the perfect read. This story follows 70 years of Cyril Avery’s life; from his birth out of wedlock in rural post-war Ireland, through his years of struggling to accept his identity as a gay man in the 20th century. Covering the difficult history of LGBT rights, as well as the IRA, terrorist bombings, AIDs and the beginnings of the legalisation of gay marriage; this is a powerful and poignant story told through the eyes of an ordinary man.
