Staff Pick

You loved The Bee Sting, so what's next? If you haven't already read it, Murray's 2010 Booker-prize nominated coming-of-age classic is set in an all-boys boarding school where a group of friends is reeling from the mysterious death of their pal Skippy. What led to his collapse is the endpoint of a hilarious journey that takes in the usual teenage boy concerns of weed and porn, as well as World War I, influencers, and the rest of the great big world waiting to devour their adult selves. This is a heart-rending but also eye-wateringly funny masterpiece.
