& FESTIVE FANTASY
3 Bright Ideas for December
What happens when the life you have known for 51 years turns upside down and everything you believed in turns out to be a lie – how do you survive and carry on? ‘Unsettled Ground’ by Claire Fuller is out in paperback this month and a worthy Shortlisted contender for the Women’s Prize for Fiction (2021).
Set in 1970’s Tipperary, rural Ireland, Donal Ryan beautifully immerses us in this story about 3 generations of a family.
First published in 2016, ‘Red Notice’ by Bill Browder is an account of the financier’s first-hand experience of Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union. A true story of crime, murder and one man’s fight for justice. Fraud, bribery and corruption is exposed at every turn. A gritty book club choice.
