The Rings Of Saturn

Paperback
by W.G. Sebald
"The Rings of Saturn" begins as the record of a journey on foot through coastal East Anglia. From Lowestoft to Bungay, Sebald's own story becomes the conductor of evocations of people and cultures past and present: of Chateaubriand, Thomas Browne, Swinburne and Conrad, of fishing fleets, skulls and silkworms. The result is an intricately patterned and haunting book on the transience of all things human.

Our Man in Havana

Paperback
by Graham Greene
One of Graham Greene’s most popular books, Our Man in Havana has all the usual trademarks of a Greene novel (foreign locale, one man, a higher power and the perversion thereof), except instead of being a taught thriller, Greene’s wit shines through and proves to be as blackly comic as one could imagine.
