Books to give

Au­thor SE­BAS­TIAN FAULKS be­came a house­hold name with his novel, Bird­song. His lat­est book is Paris Echo.

If I had my way, I’d run away and hide at Christ­mas, prefer­ably abroad, but my fam­ily likes to be at home and as I’m a demo­crat, I stay at home. My wife works in a book­shop and has a close eye on what’s com­ing out, so I get up to a dozen new books at Christ­mas. ◆ To friends, I’ll be giv­ing LIE WITH ME by Sabine Dur­rant, a dark and well-plot­ted psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller. ◆ Also OUR FRIENDS IN BER­LIN by An­thony Quinn – a wartime novel with at­mo­spheric evo­ca­tions of Lon­don in the Blitz. ◆ The book I’d most like to re­ceive is EGON SCHIELE: COM­PLETE PAINT­INGS, 1908-1918. He’s one of my favourite painters and this is a big ret­ro­spec­tive art book to com­mem­o­rate the cen­te­nary of his death.
