Indiscretion-Charles-Dubow

Whether you're lounging around your superyacht pool or retreating for some peace and quiet in your owner's cabin, no Mediterranean superyacht vacation is complete without a great book. From the latest thrillers to this year's most talked about new novels, our pick of the best has something for every literary taste.

Indiscretion by Charles Dubow

Madeline and Harry Winslow are the quintessential New York couple: he is a Yale graduate and an award-winning author, she is the perfect party host. The Winslows are beautiful, sophisticated and completely besotted with one another. They spend their summers in Maddy’s idyllic house in the East Hamptons, drinking martinis and entertaining their friends from the city. Their lives could not be more perfect.

That is until, one balmy evening a beautiful younger woman attends one of the Winslow’s parties. Bored with her bland lover, Claire turns her vivacious attention to Maddy and Harry. Over the summer, Claire’s admiration of the golden couple turns into something darker and their charmed life begins to fall apart.

With a nod towards The Great Gatsby and a touch of The Secret History, this gripping novel of love, lust, betrayal and deception shows the risks that come with having it all but still wanting more.

Indiscretion by Charles Dubow, £7.99, Harper Collins

All-Our-Wrong-Todays

Elan Mastai’s debut novel is set in a utopian paradise, where technology has solved all of humanity’s problems, from flying cars to moving pavements. Despite the seemingly perfect world that surrounds him, however, the protagonist Tom Barren is lonely and can’t find his place is this dazzling, idealistic new world. And what do you do if you are lonely and conveniently have a time machine? Something stupid.

Tom’s dabble in time travel finds him in an alternative reality that is far less perfect than his own. However, as he adjusts to his new surroundings, he begins to see the draw of this imperfect world. He then faces the ultimate decision: will he go back to his old life or stay in his new one and risk changing the future of mankind?

All Our Wrong Todays looks at this clichéd conundrum in a new, more exciting way, making it a thought provoking read you won’t be able to put down.
