The Inimitable Jeeves

Author:

P.G. Wodehouse

Synopsis:

Typical. Just when Bertie thinks that God's in his heaven and all's right with the world, things start to go wrong again. Aunt Agatha forces him to get engaged to the formidable Honoria Glossop; young Bingo Little is in love for the umpteenth time, and needs Bertie to put in a good word for him with his uncle; and the troublesome twins Claude and Eustace are raising merry havoc. Not to mention some friction in the Wooster home over a red cummerbund, purple socks, and some snazzy Old Etonian spats... Only one man can save the day - the inimitable Jeeves.

The Uncoupling

Author:

Meg Wolitzer

Synopsis:

A strange, formidable wind blows into Stellar Plains, New Jersey, where Dory and Robby Lang teach at Eleanor Roosevelt High School. Dory is suddenly and inexplicably repelled by her husband's touch, whilst back at school, life imitates art. The new drama teacher's end-of-term play is Aristophanes' LYSISTRATA, in which women withhold sexual privileges from their menfolk in order to end the Peloponnesian War. And all across town, there's a quiet battle between the sexes: relationships end abruptly and marital issues erupt. Women continue to be claimed by the spell - from Bev Cutler, the overweight guidance counsellor to Leanne Bannerjee, the sexy school psychologist - even the Langs' teenage daughter, Willa, is affected - until everything comes to a climax on the first night of LYSISTRATA...

The One-In-A-Million Boy

Author:

Monica Wood

Synopsis:

Miss Ona Vitkus has - aside from three months in the summer of 1914 - lived unobtrusively, her secrets fiercely protected. But the boy, with his passion for world records, changes all that. He is eleven. She is one hundred and four years, one hundred and thirty-three days old (they are counting). And he makes her feel like she might be really special after all. Better late than never... Only, it's been two weeks now since he last visited, and she's starting to think he's not so different from all the rest. Then the boy's father comes, for some reason determined to finish his son's good deed. And Ona must show this new stranger that not only are there odd jobs to be done, but a life's ambition to complete...

Crashing

Author:

Chris Wooding

Synopsis:

"Slack summer holidays were made to do this sort of thing. And some parties are just asking to be crashed." So here it was - the party to mark the beginning of the summer. I guess we'd all brought our own agendas; mine was to get it together with Jo Anderson. But anyone who's anyone knows stuff like that never goes to plan. Friends were rapidly turning into enemies. The local mob of street-thug wannabes had declared virtual war on me. And looming over it all was the spectre of the Zone, the derelict estate haunted by stoners, psychos and freaks, calling me back one last time. Now I just needed to get my friends on board...

City vet Maz Harwood has learned the hard way that love and work don't mix, so when an old friend asks her to look after her Devonshire practice for six months, Maz decides running away from London is her only option. She finds country life is trickier than she feared, with comatose hamsters, bowel-troubled dogs and a stubborn neighbour who's threatening to sue over an overzealous fur cut!

The Maid's Version

Author:

Daniel Woodrell

Synopsis:

In 1929, an explosion in a Missouri dance hall killed forty-two people. Who was to blame? Mobsters from St. Louis? Embittered gypsies? The preacher who railed against the loose morals of the waltzing couples? Or could it just have been a colossal accident? Alma Dunahew, whose scandalous younger sister was among the dead, believes she knows the answer - and that its roots lie in a dangerous love affair. But no one will listen to a maid from the wrong side of the tracks. It is only decades later that her grandson hears her account and unearths the truth...

Mrs Dalloway

Author:

Virginia Woolf

Synopsis:

One hot June day in London in 1923, the elegant and vivacious Clarissa Dalloway prepares for an evening party, reminiscing about childhood romance, and dwelling on her daughter Elizabeth's rapidly-approaching adulthood. Meanwhile, the shell-shocked Septimus Warren Smith hears the birds in Regent's Park chattering in Greek. There seems to be nothing to link the two: she is middle-aged and prosperous, with a sheltered, happy life behind her; whilst he teeters on the brink of madness, slowly spiralling towards self-annihilation. Yet their two spheres are about to collide...
