Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2013 and feted as having prose to match that of Hillary Mantel’s works, this novel focuses on Walter Thirsk, whose village comes under threat when three outsiders set up camp on its borders on the same night that the local manor house is set on fire.

You can do this quickly and easily by using a radiator key (find yours at DIY stores). First, find the bleed valve (at the top of each radiator). Then, hold a bowl and cloth beneath it, insert the key and turn it slowly. You will hear the hiss of trapped air escape. Once water starts to come instead of air, tighten the valve back up.
