The Garden Party

Short stories by one of New Zealand’s early literary divas capturing the foibles and disappointments of life among the garden party set.


A classic fictional account of the very real issues around caste.

River of Fire

The defining classic of Urdu literature, a millennia-spanning epic published in 1959 and only recently translated into English.

Hunchback of Notre Dame

I dove into this tome while riding the rails in Europe — its dense, entrancing story is perfect for those LONG rides and hanging in the train stations. Lurking near the venerable cathedral only enhances the experience.

Murder on the Orient Express

What better moment to indulge in this classic page-turner?
