"Outwalkers"

by Fiona Shaw

 

A future England –but not very far in the future.

 

Alone in the world except for his dog Jet, hunted by the authorities, Jake sets out to find the only family he has left. If he’s caught, he’ll be locked up in his hated school again, and what will happen to Jet?Liste

 

He’s running, but they’re hunting him and they’re getting close…

 

A gang of kids on a perilous journey through a country that will lock them up first and ask questions afterwards. They must live on their wits, all of them – even Jake’s dog, Jet – and they must work as a gang to survive.

"Less"

by Andrew Sean Greer

 

WHO SAYS YOU CAN'T RUN AWAY FROM YOUR PROBLEMS?

 

Arthur Less is a failed novelist about to turn fifty. A wedding invitation arrives in the post: it is from an ex-boyfriend of nine years who is engaged to someone else. Arthur can't say yes - it would be too awkward; he can't say no - it would look like defeat. So, he begins to accept the invitations on his desk to half-baked literary events around the world.

 

From France to India, Germany to Japan, Arthur almost falls in love, almost falls to his death, and puts miles between him and the plight he refuses to face. Less is a novel about mishaps, misunderstandings and the depths of the human heart.
