Independent Hove book shop City Books lists their bestsellers for this month…

YOU WILL BE SAFE HERE BY DAMIAN BARR (OUT 4 APRIL) 
Damian Barr’s beautiful debut novel has created a great amount of buzz already with rave reviews from writers like Jojo Moyes, Maggie O’Farrell and Patrick Gale. You Will Be Safe Here combines two timelines, one during the Boer War and one in 2010, both set in South Africa, to create a deeply moving novel of connected parts. We are delighted to be holding an event with Damian about his wonderful
book on Thurs 4 April at St Michael & All Angels Church. More info on our website.

Signed copies will available in the shop after the event.

LANNY BY MAX PORTER
The much awaited second novel from the author of Grief is the Thing with Feathers. The strange, wonderous, beautifully written story of a young boy who goes missing from a small English village. Porter is certainly a writer to watch.

 

VOX BY CHRISTINA DALCHER
A thrilling, terrifying Handmaid’s Tale-esque dystopia, out now in paperback. A new government is in power and is enforcing a horrifying new law – there is a limit on how many words can be spoken a day. Only 100 – and only if you’re a woman. If you go over your limit, a thousand volts of electricity will course through your
veins. Almost overnight, bank accounts are frozen, passports are taken away and seventy million women lose their jobs. How do you start a revolution when you cannot speak?

ANOTHER PLANET BY TRACEY THORNGood books
Fans of Tracey Thorn’s previous bestselling book Bedsit Disco Queen mustn’t miss out on her latest memoir, which covers her teenage years growing up bored and stifled in suburbia. Thorn applies her wit, wisdom and insight to the bus shelters, pub car parks and utopian cul-de-sacs of a 1970s commuter town.

DAISY JONES & THE SIX BY TAYLOR JENKINS REID 
Daisy Jones has been causing ripples of excitement here at City Books since our advance copy arrived only a short while ago. It’s a gripping novel about the whirlwind rise and sudden breakup of a hugely successful 70s rock band, told as an oral history looking back on their legacy. Each member of the band remembers things differently and as the interviews progress secrets are revealed and
mysteries are solved. A brilliant, brilliant read with truly unforgettable characters. Don’t miss out!
