Our literary favourites guaranteed to provide some page-turning escapism:

The Gastronomical Me – M.F.K Fisher: If, like us, food is the only thing getting you through self-isolation, why not read this memoir about travel, love and loss, and above all, hunger. Are we allowed another snack yet?

The Secret History – Donna Tartt: Fans of Netflix’s ‘How to get away with Murder’ will enjoy this dark and peculiar murder tale.

Heartburn – Nora Ephron: A side-splitting autobiographical novel about the breakup of the perfect marriage that reminds us that comedy depends on anguish as surely as a proper gravy depends on flour and butter.
