Paradise with Serpents by Robert Carver
The Whisperers by Orlando Figes
On Brick Lane by Rachel Lichtenstein
Sea Holly by Robert Minhinnick
The Discovery of France by Graham Rob
The only novels on the list are Darkmans (which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize), and Sea Holly, the first novel by Welsh poet Robert Minhinnick. More on all the titles on the Guardian website.
