Clem Glass was a successful photojournalist, firm in the belief that photographs could capture truth and beauty. Until he went to Africa and witnessed the aftermath of a genocidal massacre. Clem returns to London with his faith in human nature shattered and his life derailed. Nothing-work, love, sex- can rouse his interest and no other outlook can restore his faith. The one person Clem is able to connect with is his sister, who has made her own sudden retreat from reality into the shadows of mental illness, and he finds some peace nursing her back to health in rural Somerset. Then news arrives that offers him the chance to confront the source of his nightmares. From the celebrated author of Ingenious Pain and Oxygen, this is a masterfully rendered novel that explores the perilously thin line between self-delusion and optimism

The crossing by Andrew Miller( Book )

16 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and Dutch and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tim, an affable young man with modest ambition, is infatuated with Maud the moment they meet in the University Sailing Club. Who else could have entered Tim's life the way Maud did? The beautiful girl who fell past him, lay seemingly dead on the ground, than stood and walked. That is how it began. A career scientist who betrays little of herself, Maud is found by some to be enchanting, by others distant, and there is little to suggest that she has any need of anyone. Tim ties his life to hers, but slowly the marriage unravels as she quietly refuses to conform to the conventional demands of wife and mother. What begins as a story of a mismatched relationship accelerates into unforgiving judgment when a sudden tragedy forces Tim and Maud to confront the harsh reality of their life together. Walking away from her marriage, Maud sets out to sea alone, challenging nature with her own mind and body to protect her. Equal parts bold exploration of the unknowable in others and a brilliant critique of love and motherhood, The Crossing is a thrilling tale of one woman's resolute quest to seize control of her life and fate. - From inside cover
One morning like a bird by Andrew Miller( Book )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tokyo, 1940. As Japan's war with China escalates, Yuji Takano, a young man so far spared fighting by ill-health, clings to his calm, cultured life - the company of friends, evenings of French conversation at the home of the trader, Monsieur Feneon, the days of writing and contemplation enabled by an allowance from his father." "But the world begins to close in on Yuji. His father loses his professorship over a comment about the Emperor, the allowance is scrapped and, with the nation heading towards conflict with the Allies, conscription threatens. Then there is Monsieur Feneon's nineteen-year-old daughter, Alissa, a girl with firm ideas about what she wants. Yuji finds himself faced by some hard decisions just when he can't count on others, for they are struggling to save themselves." "Andrew Miller tells a timeless story about growing up and growing free of self-delusions, about following the heart and having the courage to choose what is right. Vividly evoking its setting, he also draws a portrait of a bygone Tokyo and of Japan at a critical juncture in its history."--Jacket
