Your summer reading

A round-up of some recent book extracts we've published here, with thanks to the publishers.

As part of a new and more varied approach to books coverage, we have liaised with several publishers in recent months to bring you extracts from their new offerings. These tend to be online exclusives, so we thought it would be useful to collect them together here in case any have passed you by.
