SMH: Must-read books for 2014

from The Sydney Morning Herald

Next chapter: must-read books for 2014

Jane Sullivan


There’s plenty across all genres to please bibliophiles this year.

There’s a war on in the world of books. It began 100 years ago, and publishers will mark the centenary of World War I with a barrage of history books, memoirs, first-hand recollections and Great War-themed fiction.

But it’s not only old battles being fought out on paper. From Hillary Clinton to Julia Gillard, leaders and former leaders are looking back, taking stock and producing memoirs, collaborating with biographers, or simply writing on something about which they are passionate.

Other highlights are Hanif Kureishi’s first novel in six years, The Last Word (Faber & Faber, February); Emma Donoghue’s Frog Music (Pan Macmillan, March); Alice Hoffman’s The Museum of Extraordinary Things (Simon & Schuster, April); and three titles from Hachette: David Mitchell’s The Bone Clocks (September); James Frey’s Il Divino Bambino (June); and Sarah Waters’ The Paying Guests (September)
