From the season’s big novels and historical sagas to sizzling short stories, here are five books you won’t want to miss.
THE BONE CLOCKS by David Mitchell
Similar in form to his inventive bestseller Cloud Atlas, David Mitchell’s sixth novel is actually a series of six related stories, dating from 1984 to 2043. The book, long-listed for the Man Booker Prize 2014, follows an eclectic cast of characters from a teenager and a nefarious Cambridge undergraduate to a British writer obsessed with taking revenge on a book critic. And if this weren’t enough, weaving throughout the plot is a sci-fi inspired war between two opposing bands of immortals called the Horologists and the Anchorites.
