Behind Her Eyes / Sarah Pinborough

Only two can keep a secret if one of them is dead. David and Adele seem like the ideal pair. He’s a successful psychiatrist; she is his picture-perfect wife who adores him. But why is he so controlling? And why is she keeping things hidden? As Louise, David’s new secretary, is drawn into their orbit, she uncovers more puzzling questions than answers. The only thing that is crystal clear is that something in this marriage is very, very wrong. But Louise can’t guess how wrong–and how far a person might go to protect their marriage’s secrets.

All That Man Is / David Szalay

Nine men. Each of them at a different stage of life, each of them away from home, and each of them striving in the suburbs of Prague, beside a Belgian motorway, in a cheap Cypriot hotel to understand just what it means to be alive, here and now. Tracing an arc from the spring of youth to the winter of old age, All That Man Is brings these separate lives together to show us men as they are ludicrous and inarticulate, shocking and despicable; vital, pitiable, hilarious, and full of heartfelt longing. And as the years chase them down, the stakes become bewilderingly high in this piercing portrayal of 21st-century manhood.

The Past: a novel / Tessa Hadley

Judas / Amos Oz

Jerusalem, 1959. Shmuel Ash, a biblical scholar, is adrift in his young life when he finds work as a caregiver for a brilliant but cantankerous old man named Gershom Wald. There is, however, a third, mysterious presence in his new home. Atalia Abarbanel, the daughter of a deceased Zionist leader, a beautiful woman in her forties, entrances young Shmuel even as she keeps him at a distance. Piece by piece, the old Jerusalem stone house, haunted by tragic history and now home to the three misfits and their intricate relationship, reveals its secrets. At once an exquisite love story and coming-of-age novel, an allegory for the state of Israel and for the biblical tale from which it draws its title.
