Mrs Death Misses Death by Salena Godden
Mrs Death has had enough. She is exhausted from spending eternity doing her job and now she seeks someone to unburden her conscience to. Wolf Willeford, a troubled young writer, is well acquainted with death, but until now hadn't met Death in person - a black, working-class woman who shape-shifts and does her work unseen. Wolf travels across time and place with Mrs Death to witness deaths of past and present and discuss what the future holds for humanity.

Still Life by Sarah Winman
Two strangers meet and share an extraordinary evening together as bombs fall around them in a ruined wine cellar of a Tuscan villa in 1944. Moving from the Tuscan Hills and piazzas of Florence, to the smog of London’s East End, Still Life is a sweeping, joyful novel about beauty, love, family and fate
