How to Live on 24 Hours a Day

by Arnold Bennett

Tongue-in-cheek but fascinating insight into the early 20th-century fad for intellectual self-improvement.

Riceyman Steps

by Arnold Bennett

An unexpected emotional roller-coaster, largely set in a bookshop. Small, comic-relief lives take centre-stage in a fine piece of work from an almost forgotten author.

The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard

by Arthur Conan Doyle

Highly entertaining collection of stories. Stylish and amusing, if a tad bloodthirsty, with a somewhat stereotypical view of the French.

Culture and Anarchy

by Matthew Arnold

A classic work, arguing for the importance of cultural expression in advancing both our moral/spiritual and intellectual development as a species. Full of now-obscure references, but still fascinating.
