Fiction book of the month
Nora Webster by Colm Toibin
"Toibin has established himself in recent years as one of the great English language novelists. Brooklyn and The Testament of Mary have already established themselves as classics which will be read for years to come. With the publication of Nora Webster, Toibin has made another significant addition to an already impressive body of work.
Nora Webster is a mother trapped in a world of provincial mundanity, looking after her four children following the death of her husband. Toibin's depiction of grief is so finely wrought, so truthful, that reader almost forgets this is fiction, becoming totally immersed in the troubled mind of the novel's central character."

Non-Fiction book of the month
An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth by Chris Hadfield
"Prepare for the worst. Care what others think. Sweat the small stuff. These mottos underpin the life experiences of Commander Chris Hadfield, the astronaut who shot to fame (and outer space) in 2013 when he filmed himself singing David Bowie's Space Oddity on location – the International Space Station.
This book, written on his return to Earth, is a remarkable testament to what it takes to become an astronaut: determination, academic prowess and meticulous organisation (also basic surgical and photography skills, but who's counting?).
A brilliant read that will change the way you view your life on Earth forever."
