Reviews coverage for the inimitable Bettany Hughes’ Istanbul; A Tale of Three Cities has only grown over the weekend with very positive notices from both The Observer and The Sunday Times; also in the Times, a splendid write-up from Christopher Hart has pushed Penguin’s nicely-timed reissue of Mikhail Sholokhov’s And Quiet Flows the Don straight into the most-wanted. ‘Utterly gripping and sincere, it is a true Russian classic that far descends its author’s ideological convictions,’ asserted Hart. ‘It is literature urgently about life.’

The BBC’s Sunday night adaptation of Louise Doughty’s superlative Apple Tree Yard should bring an entirely new audience to this entirely adult drama. ‘It is a mark of Doughty's assured touch with the unfolding of her narrative that we believe Yvonne's version of the truth,’ noted Stephanie Merritt in The Guardian, several years ago on the novel’s publication. ‘Apple Tree Yard is a chilling novel, in part because of the unsparing light it shines on our ability to deceive ourselves.’
