Love, Love Me Do

Author:

Mark Haysom

Synopsis:

1963. The year the Beatles first top the charts. The year Martin Luther King has a dream. The year Truman Bird moves his family from their home in Brighton to a dilapidated caravan in the Ashdown Forest - then disappears. Truman's a charmer, a chancer, a liar. He's always got away with it, too. But now he's gone a dangerous step too far and only has one day to put things right. For Truman's wife, Christie, life has not turned out the way she'd imagined. How has she, that young girl of not that many years ago, ended up like this? In a caravan. With three children. And an absent husband. Even though life has a habit of getting in the way of dreams, people find their own extraordinary ways of bouncing back.

Standard Deviation

Author:

Katherine Heiny

Synopsis:

Graham Cavanaugh's second wife, Audra, is everything his first wife was not. She considers herself privileged to live in the age of the hair towel; talks non-stop through her epidural, labour AND delivery; invites the doorman to move in, and the eccentric members of their son's Origami Club to Thanksgiving. She is charming and spontaneous and fun, but life with her can be exhausting. In the midst of the day-to-day difficulties and delights of marriage and raising a child with Asperger's, Graham's first wife, Elspeth, reenters his life. Former spouses are hard to categorize - are they friends, enemies, old flames, or just people who know you really, really well? Graham starts to wonder: how can anyone love two such different women? Did he make the right choice? IS there a right choice?
