It’s cold and dark outside and, as usual, the question looms: what do you buy your mother, sister, niece or special lady to show her that not only do you care, but that you really ‘get her’? Behold, a list of books for every woman in your life which unlike bath salts, hand creams or cheap jewellery are guaranteed to stay with them forever.
‘Tis the season to be jolly well-fed – and treating the foodie in your life to one of these gorgeous gastronomic titles will guarantee a never-ending banquet of utterly scrumptious dishes (although you may find yourself stuck with a lot of washing up…)
Yes, yes – we know 4th Estate is renowned for its incisive works of fiction (anyone heard of Hilary Mantel?) and hard-hitting non-fiction (Ben Goldacre, Naomi Klein and Nick Cohen, amongst others). But we don’t take ourselves too seriously, and can (on occasion, mind you) have a laugh. Join in the fun and feast on these quirky Christmas picks.
If you’re looking for the ideal gift for your dad, husband, brother, son, boyfriend or any other sundry males in your life then look no further. The 4th Estate elves have compiled a list of great books that will give those men a great excuse to avoid sprout-peeling duty.
