No Country for Old Men book by Cormac McCarthy
Llewelyn Moss, hunting antelope near the Rio Grande, stumbles upon a transaction gone horribly wrong. Finding bullet-ridden bodies, several kilos of heroin, and a caseload of cash, he faces a choice -- leave the scene as he found it, or cut the money and run. Choosing the latter, he knows, will change everything. And so begins a terrifying chain of events, in which each participant seems determined to answer the question that one asks another: how does a man decide in what order to abandon his life? 'No Country for Old Men is a severed head and shoulders over anything else written in America this year' Independent on Sunday 'A Western thriller with a racy plot and punchy dialogue, perfect for a lazy Sunday' The Times '[An] utterly absorbing, chilling tale ...One of the most sinister characters in modern American fiction' Herald 'A fast, powerful read, steeped with a deep sorrow about the moral degradation of the legendary American West' Financial Times 'It's hard to think of a contemporary writer more worth reading' Independent

Completion by Tim Walker
The Manvilles' North London home was once an example to their peers: the subject of 'The House on the Hill', Pen's series of popular children's books, and a recurring feature of the newspaper lifestyle sections. But since Pen and Jerry's divorce, the house has fallen out of use, and so has the family.
Dissident Gardens by Jonathan Lethem
In 1955, Rose Zimmer got screwed. In fact, Rose - like all American Communists - got screwed by the entire twentieth century. For over forty years she pounds the streets of Sunnyside Gardens, Queens, terrorising the neighbourhood, and her family, with the implacability of her beliefs, and the sheer force of her grudge. This book tells her story.
