Autumn Delights

This is the time of year when we start hearing about some of the must-read books coming from big-name authors in the autumn. Ian McEwan’s The Children Act intelligently tackles some very emotive and sensitive legal hot topics. A few lucky Dubray Books staff got their hands on early reading copies of David Mitchell’s The Bone Clocks and to say they’re excited would be an understatement: a hot tip for Man Booker glory this year! All these, plus new books from Cathy Kelly, Marian Keyes and Cecelia Ahern; and, for the first time ever, Jack Reacher is in Europe for Lee Child’s Personal.
