When Russian friends living in New York struggle to find meaning in the digital age, one develops an app called Virtual Grave, designed to maintain a dead person’s on-line presence. But maybe posting selfies to Facebook, having Skype sex and living with your nose in a laptop is the real virtual grave. Vapnayar’s best pages return to Moscow, where a messy and difficult experience is vividly recounted. This is a funny, intelligent and poignant novel.

Can a book about bread change your life? After reading this one last year, my husband Ben has made the basic no-knead recipe almost daily. Lahey’s method requires little more than flour, water, yeast and time. We haven’t enjoyed bread like this since we lived in Italy. Store bought and even bakery bread tastes like nothing once you get used to it. Lahey also includes sandwiches, soups and delicious Italian pizza recipes.

It’s authentic, unapologetic and often even cringe worthy. It’s also completely addictive. Volume 5 is the penultimate book of My Struggle and comes full circle to where we started in Volume I. The narrative centers on student life in Bergen, sex, rock n roll, alcohol abuse, a search for love and Knausgaard’s development as a young writer. It may not sound like much. I can only say that 600 plus pages flashed right by and still I want more!
