Your Shelf Life

5 books to read this month


The Bone Clocks

By David Mitchell
Threaded with the supernatural, the book begins with young Holly, who becomes the connecting force between a string of characters in this genre-bending novel that is possibly the most challenging yet rewarding book you’ll read all year.

The Dog

By Joseph O’Neill
This novel is set in Dubai, where our hero moves after a break-up with his girlfriend. What awaits him is alienation and displacement in the futuristic city as he takes a job managing the legal affairs of a wealthy Lebanese family.

Tennessee Williams

By John Lahr
Any theater biography from New Yorker drama critic John Lahr is not to be missed. Lahr explores Tennessee Williams’ family feuds, troubled sister who was lobotomized at 33, and turbulent homosexual life and misreported death.

The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher

By Hilary Mantel
Setting her stories in contemporary Britain, acclaimed author Hilary Mantel seems to relish the diversion from the Tudor court, as she includes both a ghost story and a vampire story in this contemporary collection.

A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing

By Eimear McBride
This is the story of a young woman’s relationship with her brother, whose brain tumor becomes a defining aspect of their lives. McBride explores family violence, sexuality, and the unique bond between siblings.
