The quickening maze by Adam Foulds( Book )

35 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 1,380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Centres on the first incarceration of the great nature poet John Clare. After years struggling with alcohol, critical neglect and depression, Clare finds himself in High Beach Private Asylum - an institution run on reformist principles which would later become known as occupational therapy. At the same time another poet, the young Alfred Tennyson, moves nearby and becomes entangled in the life and catastrophic schemes of the asylum's owner, the peculiar, charismatic Dr Matthew Allen. For John Clare, a man who had grown up steeped in the freedoms and exhilarations of nature, who thought 'the edge of the world was a day's walk away', a locked door is a kind of death

In the wolf's mouth by Adam Foulds( Recording )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in North Africa and Sicily at the end of World War II, In the Wolf's Mouth follows the Allies' botched "liberation" attempts as they chased the Nazis north toward the Italian mainland. Focusing on the experiences of two young soldiers, Will Walker, an English field security officer, ambitious to master and shape events; and Ray Marfione, a wide-eyed Italian American infantryman, the novel contains some of the best battle writing of the past fifty years. Eloquent on the brutish, blundering inaccuracy of war, the immediacy of Adam Foulds's prose is uncanny and unforgettable. The book also explores the continuity of organized crime in Sicily through the eyes of two men, Angilù, a young shepherd; and Cirò Albanese, a local Mafioso. These men appear in the prologue and in the book's terrifying final chapters, making it evident that the Mafia were there before and are there still, the slaughter of war only a temporary distraction

Saul Dawson-Smith can memorise the sequence of a shuffled deck of cards in under a minute; he can recite pi to a thousand decimal places and he remembers every conversation he's ever had. He is ten years old. Howard McNamee is 28: lonely, overweight and poorly-educated. He lives in the north of England, far from the scene of his difficult Glasgow childhood, in the home he shared with his mother before she died. Struggling to pay his rent with a succession of menial jobs, Howard comes home each day and talks to the late Mrs McNamee, as he sits in front of the wardrobe that still contains her clothes. Through a series of unexpected events, these two solitary people find themselves forming an unlikely friendship, as Howard is taken under the wing of Saul's parents, thrust into a life in London (where he makes new friends, tries to navigate a bewildering new city, and accidentally acquires a Russian internet fiancee) and Saul prepares himself for the World Memory Championships - the event he has been training for his whole life. But as the pressure mounts on the little boy, and his well-meaning but single-minded parents grow increasingly less able to see beyond their own ambitions for their son, Howard realises he must act to save his small friend from a life of soul-destroying competitions and unbearable expectation. The decision he reaches turns all of their lives upside-down
Dream sequence by Adam Foulds( Book )

5 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Newly divorced, Kristin chafes against her sister's concerns about how she's faring. After all, she's redecorated her ex-husband out of her home, taken up yoga, and has a new love interest: a man she met by chance in the airport, to whom she felt an instant connection, a fated love she describes to him in letter after letter--but except for the single envelope his agent's new assistant mistakenly passes along to him, Henry Banks, star of the UK's most popular television series, doesn't even know she exists. From the author of Man-Booker shortlisted The Quickening Maze, Dream Sequence is a moving depiction of psychological obsession and the unsettling consequences of fame, and the surprising ways their distorting lenses overlap."--

Set in North Africa and Sicily at the end of the last war, In the Wolf's Mouth follows the Allies' botched 'liberation' attempts as they chase the Germans north towards the Italian mainland. Focusing on the campaigns of two young soldiers? Will Walker, an English Field Security Officer, ambitious to master and shape events, and Ray Marfione, a wide-eyed Italian-American infantryman? the audiobook contains some of the best battle writing of the past fifty years. Particularly eloquent on the brutish, blundering inaccuracy of war, this is a sensual, intimate experience, the immediacy of the prose uncanny and unforgettable. The audiobook opens with the stories of two Sicilians? Angilu, a young shepherd, caught up in corruption, and Ciro Albanese, a local Mafioso? and we meet the same two men in the terrifying final chapters, making it clear that the Mafia were there before and are there still; the slaughter of war only a temporary distraction
