Boomer1, by Daniel Torday

For a hilarious winter read that provides social commentary on millennials and baby boomers alike, choose Torday’s Boomer1.

We Meet Mark, a 30-year-old man who is struggling with debt; Cassie, Mark’s ambitious and creative girlfriend; and Julia, Mark’s nostalgic mother.

Frustrated by his perceived inability to succeed, Mark creates an online alias advocating the professional succession of millennials over baby boomers.

Boomer1's humour is matched by its meditation on character circumstance, and ultimately the incredible consequences of Mark's actions.

The Immortalists, by Chloe Benjamin

The Immortalists tackles the relationship between four siblings, their lives and deaths, in an incredibly sensitive narrative.

In their younger years the siblings visit a fortune teller, in turn discovering the exact date they’re going to die.

The Immortalists explores the impact of such knowledge on the siblings decisions, and what may or may not be self-fulfilled.

We predict that if you want a thought-provoking read this winter, this is the one for you.
