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.

Author of the Day

Carrie Doyle
Carrie Doyle's mysteries are extra cozy. She loves keeping her readers guessing, but also appealing to their senses with charming scenes straight from East Hampton, quirky characters and mouthwatering food descriptions. When she is not writing her latest novel, Doyle is sure to be part of one of a myriad of projects, which may include co-writing with another author, doing magazine articles, interviewing celebrities, arranging events or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. As our Author of the Day, Doyle talks about why her books are so yummy, gives us some insights in the character of Antonia Bingham and reveals why East Hampton is her favorite place in the world.
