‘THE UK WILL BE AS HOT AS BALI TODAY’ we read on the front page of newspapers, sighing as we’re enveloped in the body heat of our fellow commuters. As we peel ourselves out of the tube and drag our humidity tormented and sleep-deprived bodies into the office, we remember why we’re here. For the BOOKS, of course. You see, summer isn’t all bad when you’ve got something good to read. Even the stifling commute is made bearable when you’re engrossed in a novel that’s as transporting as the very train you’re on. Here are the summer picks of the 4th Estate team; home or away, there will be something for you in this selection of fantastic novels.
