Mark Anchovy: Pizza Detective – William Goldsmith


Plenty of laughs and puzzles for readers of 7-10 years. Colin is no ordinary pizza delivery boy – he is also an aspiring detective. Codenamed ‘Mark Anchovy’ he is sent from his sleepy English seaside town on a special mission to Rome to track down a stolen painting and capture a notorious thief.

Talking to Strangers – Malcom Gladwell


Another pertinent title, now in paperback, in which the author uses case studies and anecdotes to examine the ways in which we misinterpret or fail to communicate with one another and hence often feel polarised, isolated or misunderstood. Original and stimulating, a refreshing read.

The Dutch House – Ann Patchett


Set over 50 years, this is the story of Maeve and her brother who grow up in an ornate house in the Philadelphia suburbs but are then evicted following an unexpected change in their family circumstances. Both a compelling read and a moving exploration of family obligations. Highly recommended.
