Jem Calder's go-to book recommendations for a friendBy Faber
The following is a list of my go-to books to recommend to a friend. Today, reader, you are the friend I’m recommending them to.
Evan S. Connell£9.99 £9.49
Crystalline elliptical writing. Has a just-as-good sequel, too.
Richard Yates£9.99 £9.49
Awe-inspiring and unbearable. The last few pages left a permanent dent in me.
SARAH SHUN-LIEN BYNUM£7.99 £7.59
Warm, funny, cool. Very charming.
George Eliot£9.99 £9.49
About as good as it’ll ever get. If you haven’t, you must read it.
Jem Calder£14.99 £14.24
'Reward System is an exhilarating and beautiful book by an extraordinarily gifted writer. Reading these stories, I found myself thinking newly and differently about contemporary life.' SALLY ROONEY
