We delve into The Ministry of Utmost Happiness by Arundhati Roy. Longlisted for the Booker Prize (2017), it didn’t make the shortlist, but did it make for a good book club read?
Meanwhile for fans of horror and Halloween enthusiasts alike we meet up with Andy Russell of London’s Horror Book Club to find out about the joys of being frightened by your book at bedtime.
And we have recommendations for your next book club read, including a bookseller recommendation from James Elliott of Daunt’s in Belsize Park.
