Readers’ Salon Recommendations (November 2018)

Braving the suddenly biting cold of a November night in Edinburgh, our readers came out in force to let us know what they were reading as the days turn short and dark. From excellent non-fiction recommendations to metamorphic classics to bizarre and hilarious fiction via an exploration of psychopaths in literature, we had a really wonderful time. We hope that the books listed below give you a flavour of the vibe from Readers’ Salon, as well as prompting more inspiration for your own winter reading!
