A few people have asked us to list our previous book of the month titles. We actually started back in 2011 and our first ever title was Hisham Matar's In the country of Men.

For now, here's the last three years' book of the month titles. Feeling slightly nostalgic reading through and realise what brilliant authors we've had on over the years. Please use this thread to discuss previous titles - the good and the unreadable wink and let us know if you decide to read any of these books. We're always keen to hear your thoughts...also do let us know if you want us to go back further.
