Asymmetry : a novel
By Lisa Halliday
Told in three distinct and uniquely compelling sections, this novel explores the imbalances that spark and sustain many of our most dramatic human relations: inequities in age, power, talent, wealth, fame, geography, and justice. A stunning debut from a rising literary star, it’s a novel of ideas and a politically engaged work of metafiction.
How to stop time : a novel
By Matt Haig
Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old, but because of a rare condition, he’s been alive for centuries. From performing with Shakespeare, to exploring the high seas with Captain Cook, to sharing cocktails with F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tom has seen a lot. But now, after over 400 years of reinventing himself, he just wants an ordinary life.
