Bookshelf is our regular show where we talk about books read in-between our book club books, the ones that we get to pick and choose.
In this episode we begin in London with period drama Belgravia by Julian Fellowes, and urban fantasy Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. We escape to France, and sunny Provence with unreconstructed male-wish-fulfilment novel Hotel Pastis by Peter Mayle. We then get lost in an imagined reality with Robin Hobb’s Farseer Trilogy. We’re delighted by heartwarming romance Hunting and Gathering by Anna Gavalda, and intrigued by Lost at Sea by Jon Ronson. We walk in the footsteps of Raynor Winn on The Salt Path and finally – as self-sufficiency comes to seem increasingly relevant – we learn about the practicalities of sheep farming with The Shepherd’s Life by James Rebanks.
