A week in December by Sebastian Faulks( Book )
34 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,782 libraries worldwide
"In Sebastian Faulks' panoramic and masterful new novel, we follow, over seven eventful days, the lives of seven major characters: a hedge fund manager trying to bring off the biggest trade of his career, a professional footballer recently arrived from Poland, a young lawyer with little work and too much time to speculate, a student who has been led astray by Islamist theory, a hack book reviewer with more blades out than a Swiss Army knife, a schoolboy hooked on genetically enhanced pot and reality TV, and a Tube train driver with a secret online life whose Circle Line train joins these and countless other lives together in a daily loop. Here is a powerfully compelling novel that holds a mirror up to the complex patterns and crossings of modern urban life, with all its ironies, conflicts, and discontinuities. Melding the moral heft of Dickens with the satirical spirit of Tom Wolfe, A Week in December fearlessly tackles greed, the dehumanizing effects of the electronic age, and the fragmentation of society with savage humor. The writing on the wall appears in letters ten feet high, but the characters refuse to see it--and party on as though tomorrow is a dream"--Page 2 of cover

Jeeves and the wedding bells by Sebastian Faulks( Book )
19 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,649 libraries worldwide
"Bertie Wooster (a young man about town) and his butler Jeeves (the very model of the modern manservant)--return in their first new novel in nearly forty years: Jeeves and the Wedding Bells by Sebastian Faulks. P.G. Wodehouse documented the lives of the inimitable Jeeves and Wooster for nearly sixty years, from their first appearance in 1915 ("Extricating Young Gussie") to the his final completed novel (Aunts Aren't Gentlemen) in 1974. These two were the finest creations of a novelist widely proclaimed to be the finest comic English writer by critics and fans alike. With the approval of the Wodehouse estate, acclaimed novelist Sebastian Faulks brings Bertie and Jeeves back to life in a hilarious affair of mix-ups and mishaps. Bertie, nursing a bit of heartbreak over the recent engagement of one Georgiana Meadowes to someone not named Wooster, agrees to "help" his old friend Peregrine "Woody" Beeching, whose own romance is foundering. Almost immediately, things go awry and the simple plan quickly becomes complicated. Jeeves ends up having to impersonate one Lord Etringham, while Bertie plays the part of Jeeves' manservant "Wilberforce"--and this all happens under the same roof as the now affianced Ms. Meadowes. From there the plot becomes even more hilarious and convoluted, in a brilliantly conceived, seamlessly written comic work worthy of the master himself"--
