Iran, France, China and the edges of Greenland: it's a wide ranging bookshelf on today's Books Plus. Irish writer Cormac James, has written a harrowing, beautiful novel trapped in the ice of the Arctic Circle - The Surfacing. We travel to China and learn about the country's contemporary culture and politics with Nicholas Jose's collection of short stories Bapo.
