Waterstones' spring book club titles are 'strongest yet'

Two titles from Penguin Random House imprint Harvill Secker are among the titles that have been selected for the Waterstones spring book club in its "strongest selection yet".

The Gracekeepers by Kirsty Logan and The Dust that Falls from Dreams are the two titles published by Harvill Secker.

Costa prize-winning The Loney by Andrew Michael Hurley (John Murray), Number 11 by Jonathan Coe (Viking) and Black Eyed Susans by Julia Heaberlin (Michael Joseph) were also selected. Completing the list are Early One Morning by Virginia Baily (Fleet), Noonday by Pat Barker (Penguin) and Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All by Jonas Jonasson (Fourth Estate).

Chris White, Waterstones fiction buyer, said: “I reckon this is the strongest selection yet. The Gracekeepers and The Loney were not just two of the best debuts written last year but two of the best books full stop. Black Eyed Susans is already proving a huge success as our Thriller of the Month and I’m delighted we are able to continue promoting it in Book Club. Pat Barker, Louis De Bernieres, Jonathan Coe and Jonasson need no introduction but all have produced some of their finest work to date. Everybody will be able to find something to love on this list.”
