I have a feeling I'll never tire of reading the work of JW Ironmonger.

Last year, I read the Notable Brain of Maximilian Ponder and loved it. I'm glad to report that The Coincidence Authority is equally wonderful.

Essentially, it's a love story between Thomas and Azalea, but it's so much more than that. It's witty, intelligent, dark in places, and also gentle and beautifully written.

In fact, the idiosyncratic style of Ironmonger is what really makes this book special. His turn of phrase is lovely and every page contains something that made me smile.

His description of Thomas is a case in point: "Thomas Post seems to roll along, a curious, angular fellow, a lummox, tall, awkward, in an ill-fitting jacket and large, round spectacles."

It's just slightly different and all the better for it.

Do try this - it's the sort of book you'd be unlikely to pick up without a recommendation. This is mine, so do so!
