Three to go
A woman’s quest to find herself after leaving an unfaithful pornographer husband and her Florida socialite lifestyle is at the centre of Love May Fail (HarperCollins Canada), the latest novel by Matthew Quick, author of The Silver Linings Playbook.
Finnish-Estonian author and playwright Sofi Oksanen revisits 1940s Estonia during the Soviet occupation from a much different perspective than her international best-selling 2008 novel The Purge. When the Doves Disappeared (Anansi) illustrates the struggle of two Red Army deserters amid socio-political tumult.
In a sequel to her number-one bestseller Life After Life, Kate Atkinson tells the story of Teddy, the younger brother of protagonist Ursula Todd, as he struggles to reconcile himself with the transitional post-war 20th century in A God in Ruins (Doubleday).
