            'Wallace Chapman is the thinking man's Dalai Lama. '-Steve Braunias. Wallace Chapman is on a mission. A mission to chill us all out. He's thought a lot about the syndrome of modern life and thinks he has a few answers. Ranging over subjects such as careers, technology, health, co...mmunication, food, and relationships, and employing a captivating mix of pop psychology, science, philosophy and humour, Chapman distils the many mixed messages we each receive on a daily basis into a self-help book that's not actually a self-help book. For anyone feeling he ravages of time-poorness, Don't Just Do Something, Sit There is an amusing and insightful take on considering life as we live it. A better life won't happen overnight and if it does, seek help. Because slow living takes time.

            Classical is karaoke - playing covers of dead people's music - or so Wellingtonian Hannah concludes when she sabotages her London conservatorium scholarship. But she wants to keep playing, like her grandmother, Klara, from whom she inherited a cello. The instrument was broken at ...a party when Hannah was a teenager, and she's still trying to atone for its damage, and to come to terms with her coinciding diagnosis of diabetes. Unmoored from the classical discipline, Hannah turns to composing her own songs. She's in New York City now, where Klara grew up, and her great aunt still lives, guarding the cello's twin. Can Hannah procure it and appease her father? And how does Klara's past inform Hannah's music? As Hannah investigates her Jewish-refugee heritage, she also has to contend with domestic issues: is she with the right man, or should she swap stability for lust, in the form of her visiting first boyfriend? And how much longer can she live with a neurotic, junk-scavenging flatmate, on the verge of murdering another zebra fish?
