BY AL­LIE BROSH Fans of the hu­mor­ous web comicblog will rel­ish this colour­ful com­pen­dium. Brosh’s style has been likened to that of co­me­dian and au­thor David Sedaris, with star­tling turns of phrase and tongue-in-cheek wit. Filled with ran­dom thoughts and childhood sto­ries that will make you smile, the book is a wel­come celebration of the lighter side of life.

BY STEPHEN KING The long-an­tic­i­pated se­quel to 1977’s The Shin­ing, this rein­tro­duces pro­tag­o­nist Dan Tor­rance, still try­ing to es­cape his fa­ther’s hor­rific legacy. Life takes an un­ex­pected turn when he en­coun­ters Abra Stone, whom he must save from the True Knot, im­mor­tals who feed on chil­dren.

BY JOHN GR­ISHAM For his lat­est, Gr­isham po­et­i­cally re­vis­its his first – A Time To Kill. Jake Bri­g­ance finds him­self in another con­tro­ver­sial trial when the dy­ing Seth Hub­bard chose an early end. Upon the dis­cov­ery of Hub­bard’s new hand­writ­ten will, the novel’s whole cast of char­ac­ters is thrown into a web of in­trigue and pure sus­pense.
