Soldier, loner, hero and lover

New contemporary fiction for August includes Monica Ali's new book 'Alentejo Blue', the story of Portuguese village Mamarrosa. In 'My dirty little book of stolen time', we learn that the course of harlotry never runs smooth. In 'The book of Dave : a revelation of the recent past and the distant future', several centuries pass and all that is left of London above the risen sea is the isle of Ham. In 'Winkie', a tattered teddy bear miraculously discovers the power of movement.
