Top 10 must-reads of April

Forget Mr Darcy and Heathcliff – the only male character you need to know about right now is borderline-autistic Don Tillman in The Rosie Project, who we fell head-over-heels in love with. This month also brings captivating memoirs from Maya Angelou and Emma Brockes, who both write with clarity and humour about their relationship with their mothers. We say surround yourself with Easter eggs and tuck into our best new releases of April.
