The prolific Anne Tyler is well represented with The Amateur Marriage and The Clock Winder. The former, about a dysfunctional marriage and the latter, about a relationship between a widow and the woman she hires as a handywoman. Tyler's ablity to make the simple and domestic, complex and emotional is on display.
The Man Booker Prize winning, A Brief History of Seven Killings, by Marlon James imagines the aftermath of an attempted assassination of Bob Marley. An astonishingly well-researched and character-driven novel.
Father's Day by Simon Van Booy is about a young girl, moving between her childhood and young adult life and explores relationships and our idea of what makes a family.
The award-winning Joanna Cannon's Three Things About Elsie is a funny and poignant look at a woman reflecting on her life.
One of the most celebrated novels in recent times, The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides is an often hilarious, tender and heartbreaking glimpse at the meaning of relationships.
