Great books from Canongate and Harvill

The Gospel According To Jesus Christ (Panther)
The Gospel According To Jesus Christ (Panther)
"Soundbites cannot capture the beauty of this novel.  At first seemingly difficult to read, it is actually difficult to stop reading once you get into it and haunts you for days after you finish."
Madame
Madame
"The best book written about being at school I have ever read.  Better still because of its evocation of the repressiveness prevalent in 60s Poland."
Under The Skin
Under The Skin
"An unusual book that unravels to be something you entirely unexpect.  A superb work of the imagination and compulsive reading."
Lanark: Life in Four Books (Canongate Classics)
Lanark: Life in Four Books (Canongate Classics)
"Lanark is a classic synthesis of fantasy and dripping infested realism.  Pity about the dull Canongate Classics cover."
The Wind-up Bird Chronicle
The Wind-up Bird Chronicle
"I think this is his best book - by combining his addictive apparently effortless style with some very serious issues about Japan's past."
Young Adam ("Rebel Inc." Classics)
Young Adam ("Rebel Inc." Classics)
"Young Adam is one of those books you never really forget, and one that combines the apparent exoticism of existentialism with the dirtiness of a Scottish canal."
Where I'm Calling From: Selected Stories
Where I'm Calling From: Selected Stories
"Raymond Carver's short stories are deceptively ordinary and it is in this ordinariness that they linger with you and make you smile or cry."
Silk
Silk
"Silk is one of those books you think are going to be intensely irritiating which turn out to be jewels."
The Grampian Quartet: The Quarry Wood: The Weatherhouse: A Pass in the Grampians: The Living Mountain
The Grampian Quartet: The Quarry Wood: The Weatherhouse: A Pass in the Grampians: The Living Mountain
"I love these books, all about the harsh life lived by the peoples of the north eastern slice of Scotland.  Superb."
