If nobody speaks of remarkable things by Jon McGregor( Book )
27 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and Italian and held by 1,137 libraries worldwide
The author invites you into the private lives of the residents of a quiet urban street in England over the course of a single day. You witness the hopes, fears, and unspoken despairs of a diverse community. The tranquility of the street is shattered at day's end when a terrible accident occurs. This tragedy and a surprising twist provide the momentum for the book, but it is the author's rendering of the ordinary, the everyday, that gives this novel its sense of beauty, wonder, and hope
Even the dogs : a novel by Jon McGregor( Book )
18 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 784 libraries worldwide
On a cold, quiet day between Christmas and New Year, a man's body is found in an abandoned apartment. His friends look on from the shadows, a chorus keeping vigil as the hours pass, paying homage as their friend's body is taken away, examined, investigated, and cremated. All of their stories are laid out piece by broken piece through a series of fractured narratives--of lives fallen through the cracks, hopes flaring and dying, love over-whelmed by stronger need, and the havoc wrought by drugs, distress, and the disregard of the wider world. These invisible people live in a parallel reality, out of reach of basic creature comforts like food and shelter. In their sudden deaths, it becomes clear that they are treated with more respect than they ever were in their short lives

"David Carter is an obsessive collector and the curator of a local history museum. In addition to archiving the community, he has kept an archive of his own life since he was a young boy, collecting sundry items that tell his story: birth certificate, school report cards, annotated cinema and train tickets." "David has tidy ideas about personal history; it can be cataloged and contained in boxes, devoid of mess and emotion. Or so he thinks ... until one day an addled old aunt exposes a long-buried family secret, forcing David to consider the possibility that his whole life has been constructed around a lie and all the artifacts he has collected don't add up to the truth at all." "In fits and starts David's world begins to unravel. Struggling to make sense of his past through his archive of photos, letters, and artifacts, David is driven forward, across wartime London and postwar Coventry, rural Ireland, and Aberdeen, Scotland, in a search for meaning and truth."--BOOK JACKET
