The Sellout had been widely turned down by UK publishers – until Oneworld Publishing's Juliet Mabey was alerted to it. Today, the satirical novel is the 2016 Man Booker Prize for Fiction.

The Sellout tackles the difficult topics of race, history and politics. And through a young, black watermelon grower, we see the changing racial landscape of a fictional American town. And Paul Beatty's witty, satire lends the entire situation an air of hilarity without making light of these serious topics.

His Bloody Project was on the shortlist of the Man Booker prize this year. Though it lost out to The Sellout, let's just say this was also a phenomenal book.

The year is 1869. A brutal triple murder in a remote community in the Scottish Highlands leads to the arrest of a young man by the name of Roderick Macrae. A memoir written by the accused makes it clear that
he is guilty, but it falls to the country’s finest legal and psychiatric minds to uncover what drove him to commit such merciless acts of violence.

It's a brilliant tale of power and justice, and the arbitrariness of it all.

This was one of our most popular books of 2016, and you have to read it to see why, really.

Tanya isn’t real, and neither is Amelia Keen, Debra Maze, or any of her other aliases. She is “Amelia” when she meets Blue, another woman with a life she’d rather not discuss, and thinks she’s found her kindred spirit. But their pasts and futures clash as the body count rises around them…

A car is found on a deserted beach on the Spanish island of Fuerteventura. On the back seat lies a cardboard box containing the body of a small boy buried in newspaper cuttings. No one knows his name, and there is no trace of a driver. The last thing an ailing tourist resort needs is a murder, and the police are desperate to close the case.

Thomas Rydahl presents to us a gripping thriller fraught with lies and plenty of tension and dilemma. Can an old man cut off from the modern world solve this crime and restore order within this community?

What are the roots of the global jihad movement? What is ISIS? What threats does it pose for Australia? What does its rise say about the effectiveness of the War on Terror since 9/11, and what does a coherent strategy look like after a disastrous year?

Blood Year is a vivid, urgent account of the War on Terror by a thinker who helped shape its strategy and witnessed its evolution on the ground.

When Isabel meets Edward, both are at a crossroads: he wants to follow his late wife to the grave, and she is ready to give up on love. But when Isabel has to accompany him for a bit, Isabel has no idea that the man in the kitchen baking the sublime roast chicken and light-as-air apricot soufflé will end up changing her life.

Dinner with Edward is a book about sorrow and joy, love and nourishment, and about how dinner with a friend can, in the words of M. F. K. Fisher, “sustain us against the hungers of the world.”

The Atomic Weight of Love is more than a love story spanning from WWII to 1970s. It's also about the ever-changing roles of women and the spaces that they take up. From being a supportive partner, to forging it out on her own, Meridien Wallace's scientific dreams were simply too big for the world at that time.

99 Stories About God is not a devotional text, neither is it religious so before you're like "SKIP", read on. The 99 super short flash fiction pieces are fictional vignettes exploring the relationship with a "god" - whatever that may be. And the darkness and absurdity of everyday life in random moments.

Told with vibrant, lush detail and a wicked sense of humor, The Diver’s Clothes Lie Empty is part literary mystery, part psychological thriller—an unforgettable novel that explores free will, power, and a woman’s right to choose not her past, perhaps not her present, but certainly her future.

In 1966, at just twenty-two, Richard Goldstein approached the Village Voice with a novel idea. 'I want to be a rock critic,' he said. And so, Goldstein became the first person to write regularly in a major publication about the music that was changing everyone's lives.

Another Little Piece of My Heart is Goldstein's insight into the rock scene starting from the 60s. He records the rock revolution, lives through the deaths of icons, and tours with some of the best. It's a music read not to be missed.

Ken Liu's The Paper Menagerie is one of the best sci-fi short stories to come out in the recent past. The short story is a mash up of love, paper tigers, mail order bride and culture clash, and so wonderfully moulded into a tear-jerking story. Mark our words, Ken Liu will be a name to be remembered in the sci-fi circles.

Death is the one thing that we all confront, that we know is inevitable. Yet why have we come to fear it so much? Death's Summer Coat explores the rituals of the past and how the death of a loved one might not have been such a distant, detached thing that we've come to know today. This is one great look into mortality throughout time and space.
