SAS Great Escapes, by Damien Lewis

SAS Great Escapes tells the story of seven of the most dramatic and daring escapes executed during WWII by what is arguably the world’s most famous military fighting force – the SAS.

The Way Of All Flesh, by Samuel Butler

Written between 1873 and 1884 and published posthumously in 1903, The Way of All Flesh is regarded by some as the first twentieth-century novel. Samuel Butler’s autobiographical account of a harsh upbringing and troubled adulthood shines an iconoclastic light on the hypocrisy of a Victorian clerical family’s domestic life. It also foreshadows the crumbling of nineteenth-century bourgeois ideals in the aftermath of the First World War, as well as the ways in which succeeding generations have questioned conventional values.
