To their friends, Lotto and Mathilde are the perfect couple. They marry young much to the abhorrence of Lotto’s wealthy family but against the odds the marriage thrives and Lotto becomes a successful playwright taking Broadway and later the world by storm, while Mathilde remains the loyal and perfect New York wife. However this is only half of the story as Groff weaves a passionate and powerful tale that this is a devastating portrayal of a modern marriage, a story of two sides, told through the eyes of characters that are so brilliantly written that Fates and Furies has won plaudits from all quarters including praise from Barack Obama. Forget the football this summer as the real drama takes place within the pages of this mesmerising and addictive novel. All I can say is that I envy those who haven’t discovered it yet!

Recommended by Nicola, Dubray Bray.
