Top Reads from Anna Low from The Potts Point Bookshop

What do you recommend everyone must read? 

That is a tricky question – books like people come in all shapes and sizes, so it is almost impossible to recommend one book to everyone but here is a few of my all time favourite books that I think everyone should read.   Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie, A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon and Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie.

What is the most requested book by your customers? We are getting lots of requests for the Elena Ferrante novels. There are four books in this series which chart the friendship of two women growing up in Naples starting in the 1950s they are totally addictive.  The books are My Brilliant Friend, The Story of a New Name, Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay, The Story of the Lost Child.

Top book to read over the summer holidays? The book that is on everyone’s lists this summer is A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara.  This book is an enormous novel of love and friendship but also one of the most heartbreaking and confronting books I have every read but also one of the most moving.

Book that altered your way of thinking? One or many? There are so many books that have had a impact on my life and my thinking about my place in the world.  The book that stands out that had a really major impact on me was Life a Users Manual by Georges Perec.  I read it many years ago and am almost too afraid to re-read it in case it disappoints me but at the time I was completely blown away by this great big novel which charts the life of a Paris apartment building.
