Philip Larkin

Collected Poems

Moody, bleak, and often oh-so-dead-on, Philip Larkin seems to have written a poem to match just about any frame of mind or physical state
British author Agatha Christie

Agatha Christie Mysteries

One of my favourite writers is the dame of whodunits, Agatha Christie. Born in Torquay, England, in 1890, Christie got her start with a friendly dare.
Janet Fitch

Paint it Black

Janet Fitch's Paint It Black is aptly named. Josie's is one of the hardest drinking and drugging women I've met in fiction in a while.
Justine Picardie

Daphne

Daphne, the latest novel by British writer Justine Picardie, artfully begs the question: Where would we be without our literary forbears

A Very Bookish Holiday

Library Lion is an excellent children's book written by Michelle Knudsen and illustrated by Kevin Hawkes
84 Charing Cross Rd

84 Charing Cross Road Review

84 Charing Cross Road will resonate with anyone who relishes the tactile beauty of regally bound, hand press books

Arthur Phillips

A spiritual adviser, Anne Montague, is summoned to the Barton's home to exorcise any pervading evil. So far, nothing out of the ordinary for a good Victorian chiller.
Jan Pienkowski

The Fairy Tales

The Fairy Tales are also appropriate, despite their darker elements, for children who have perhaps overindulged on the sugar-coated Disney versions
Arnold Lobel

The Adventures of Frog and Toad

Arnold Lobel's Frog and Toad Are Friends, published in 1970, is the first in a series of four books about these two famous friends
Wilkie Collins

The Moonstone

The Moonstone is a very long tale about a precious gem stolen from the brow of a Hindu deity that wreaks havoc on an English family
Elizabeth Taylor, author

Blaming

Blaming by Elizabeth Taylor is the story of an unlikely friendship that forms between Amy, an Englishwoman, and Martha, an American
