Top 10 must-reads of August

In our pick of this month's books, the Bennets' servants in Pride and Prejudice have their time to shine in the excellent Longbourn and Hannah Kent takes us to 19th century Iceland in the haunting Burial Rites, based on the true story of the last woman to be executed. We also review the most controversial novel of the year, Tampa, about a female teacher with an obsession for 14-year-old boys. Don't say we didn't warn you.
