Think some of you professional reviewers a little jaded by the enjoyment simplicity and subtlety can convey.

Arsenic and Adobo by Mia Manansala is a quirky, cosy mystery full of humour and heart with a clever heroine who is as talented in the kitchen as she is at a murder scene. They are also interested – far more than most contemporary male novelists – in the intricate family dynamics that lead to sudden departures.Anyone with a mother ought to read My Phantoms by Gwendoline Riley (Granta), a novelist of uncompromising brilliance. Beautifully produced by Rough Trade Books, each of the four poets produces a standalone pamphlet that comes to form part of an incredible whole.

It’s enviably, coolly intelligent without ever becoming ironic or snide and just one more exposition of Lafarge’s many gifts following on from her poetry collection Life Without Air. The sensitivity of Susie Boyt’s story of family love, Loved and Missed (Little, Brown), wrings the heart: it shows tenderness to each, makes you care for all… a gentle masterpiece. A continental shield is a large expanse of land where Precambrian rocks are exposed through the Earth's crust. She has carved out a world in northern Ontario that's vividly, absorbingly real; she captures tones and voices with exactitude in writing that's idiomatic but never flashy and carries you along from midnight to dawn, oblivious of the time.

Truth about Neighbours star Troy Beckwith's death at age 48 as family announce there will be no funeral: 'He fought a tough battle. There’s a more fable-like treatment of political violence in one of the surprise inclusions, An Island; South African Karen Jennings’s small-press parable centres on an isolated lighthouse keeper who has suffered under colonialism and dictatorship in an unnamed African country. If it’s not Clara breaking in to rearrange the ornaments just the way Mrs Orchard liked them, it’s police officers showing up to interrogate him about his intentions or tradesmen only agreeing to fix his roof if he’ll do most of the work himself. I thought that the Temiskaming Speaker was an imaginary newspaper, created to show the quaint parochialism of Northern Ontario.

Crow Lake and The Other Side of the Lake are the other two they’ve recommended to me (alongside this one, which they also loved). The books world has long complained about the Booker’s decision to open its doors to American authors. Part memoir, part investigation into oil-rig culture, part critique of gender and class dynamics, it’s incredibly compelling, often dark as the drilled-for product. He can’t work out what to do with his life and he hopes temporarily living in the house will give him some breathing space.An international bestseller and one of The Times' "Top 50 Novels Published in the 21st Century," Claire Keegan's piercing contemporary classic Foster is a heartbreaking story of childhood, loss, and love; now released as a standalone book for the first time ever in the US. This is the third Booker listing for Damon Galgut; The Promise follows a white South African family in the decades before and after the end of apartheid, weighing broken promises on a national and individual level.

History is an interpretation of the past and these three books, each one powerfully persuasive and offering new ways of seeing, are in conversation with each other. ITV's Love Island All Stars faces backlash from fans over complaints about the format: 'Streaming platforms have me spoiled! It’s totally possible to read it without acknowledging the depth, but when you become aware of it while reading, it suddenly became that much more exciting a read.Not only was it the good choice I had expected for my own personal reasons, it exceeded my expectations in so many ways. Many of them consider how people grapple with the past – whether personal experiences of grief or dislocation or the historical legacies of enslavement, apartheid and civil war.
