New and notable paperbacks: Spring 2013
The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared
"Quasi-comical Euro-hit about a very old man doing a bunk from his nursing home. Might come in handy one day, you never know."
Waiting for Sunrise
"Historical mystery set in pre-WW1 Vienna. Needless to say, Freud is involved...!"
The Valley of Unknowing
"Darkly comic love triangle story with a murder at its heart, set in the twilight years of the Soviet bloc. Unpredictable and surprisingly funny."
The Chemistry of Tears
"Clocks, bereavement and the human condition from the twice Booker-winner."
"Whimsical tale about another watchmaker (see Carey's above), this is a little more whimsical and a lot more self-conscious."
The Uninvited Guests
"Tired and emotional Edwardian ghost story set in a big house. Being too starchy makes one unhappy. Who knew?"
The Greatcoat (Hammer)
"Rather more successful chiller, set in 1950s Yorkshire. Refreshingly starch free."
"Latest philosophical mystery from this brainy German writer."
The Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry
"Heartwarming story of one man's walk across Britain to visit a dying friend."
Phantom: A Harry Hole thriller (Oslo Sequence 7)
"Latest in this chilly and often lurid crime series from Norway."
The Man Who Forgot His Wife
"Comic novel about a man who forgets who he is... on a train."
"Interesting dystopian vision of England's near-future."
The Good Father
"Intense story about a regular dad whose son has become a killer."
"Over-long and patchy novel about London society today. Some nice touches, but maybe lacking in bite."
Zona: A Book about a Film about a Journey to a Room
"Bizarre but engaging story about a man watching a film."
New Ways to Kill Your Mother: Writers and Their Families
"Interesting look at writers and their families."
The Prisoner of Heaven
"One dose of Zafon's gothic hokum was enough for me, but many will leap at another dollop."
The Art of Fielding
"American first novel about baseball that had American critics swooning."
The Invisible Circus
"First novel from the Pulitzer winning author of 'A Visit from the Goon Squad'."
Every Contact Leaves A Trace
"Ponderous literary thriller set in Oxford."
"The assassination of a leading Nazi, told in post-modern fragments"
"Clumsily written thriller and about one half of a perfect couple who disappears. The mystery element works, the over-egged writing does not."
Joyland (Hard Case Crime) (Hard Case Crime Novels)
"The 1970s, an amusement park, a series of horrible murders. Is this a return to form for the 'king' or horror/suspense?"
The Snow Child
"Creepy Russian fairytale retold in Canada. But without a pipeline or an oil-slick in sight!"
Bring Up the Bodies
"Intense (over-written?) sequel to 'Wolf Hall'."
