I've revised my list as I'd confused AW with Goodreads, where Margaret Atwood IS a writer. So my list is now as follows:

Support your home team - Ageless erotica: an anthology by Joan Price. One of the authors is definitely an AWer.

Feast your ears - audiobook. Birdsong by Sebastian Faulkes.

Who was that again? Elfrida, the first crowned queen of England, by Elizabeth Norton.

Halcyon Days - Devil Water by Anya Seton.

East Meets West - A Daughter of the River by Ying Yong, OR Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts.

I've met them! - The Red Sari by Javier Moro.

Loose ends - Bright Tapestry by Margaret Pearson.

Step-by-step, a how-to book. How to Outwit Aristotle and 34 other really interesting uses of philosophy by Peter Cave.

Earth, wind and fire. The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humbolt's new World by Andrea Wulf.

Crossing the colour line - A House for Mr Biswas by V. S. Naipaul.

Holy Moly - The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchells.

What your great grandparents read: Episodios Nacionales: Trafalgar. By Benito Pérez Galdós.
Halcyon Days - Devil Water by Anya Seton.
