Market Farm is a Swiftian satire on the untrammelled free market thinking that helped usher in the current financial crisis. In its concept, it pays homage to George Orwell s Animal Farm and engages the reader in an amusing way with the causes and likely outcomes of the crisis we are all facing. The story follows the fortunes of three characters: Erroll, a bull who is an eternal optimist; Merlin, a donkey who is a down- to-earth pessimist; and Lily, a chicken who is largely timid and confused. While focusing on the damage wrought by the financial crisis, Market Farm examines its deeper causes and takes passing swipes at other problems of modern life. These include the cult of fine food, the rise of the welfare state, pollution, obesity, social disorder, the domination of the political process by the media, and even the rise of the internet and phenomena such as Twitter."

In the summer of 1964, while a military coup was taking place and tanks were rolling through the streets of Algiers, Robert Irwin set off for Algeria in search of Sufi enlightenment. There he entered a world of marvels and ecstasy, converted to Islam and received an initiation as a faqir. He learnt the rituals of Islam in North Africa and he studied Arabic in London. He also pursued more esoteric topics under a holy fool possessed of telepathic powers. A series of meditations on the nature of mystical experience run through this memoir. But political violence, torture, rock music, drugs, nightmares, Oxbridge intellectuals and first love and its loss are all part of this strange story from the 1960s.

The Mussolini Canal is one of the great achievements of contemporary Italian fiction. It spans 100 years of Italian history as seen through the lives of the Peruzzi family, who are among the 30,000 peasants from Northern Italy sent down to farm the newly-drained Pontine Marshes outside Rome in the 1930s. Mussolini is revered by the Peruzzi family, who must reconcile their admiration for Il Duce with the failings of Fascism which slowly envelop them. Contemporary events permeate the book and the hardship and misery of earlier periods are seen against the background of modern prosperity. It won the Strega prize in 2010 in Italy and has sold over 400,000 copies in Italy
