            You made me very bad, Connor. And I am so glad. Ana and Connor have been having an affair for three years. In hotel rooms and coffee shops, swiftly deleted texts and briefly snatched weekends, they have built a world with none but the two of them in it. But then the unimaginable ...happens, and Ana finds herself alone, trapped inside her secret. How can we lose someone the world never knew was ours? How do we grieve for something no one else can ever find out? In her desperate bid for answers, Ana seeks out the shadowy figure who has always stood just beyond her reach - Connor's wife Rebecca. Peeling away the layers of two overlapping marriages, Here is the Beehive is a devastating excavation of parenthood, betrayal and loss.

            How to Fly: (in Ten Thousand Easy Lessons)

            The poems of How to Fly (In Ten Thousand Easy Lessons) find breath and lightness in the common business of living. Barbara Kingsolver's generous collection is divided into thematic sections that loop and interweave to form a carefully patterned whole: a series of 'How to' poems t...hat smartly balance tongue-in-cheek pragmatism with revelatory wisdom, a complicated yet affirmative family pilgrimage to Italy, cherished childhood memories, the perils and pleasures of being a [female] writer, elegies to lost loved ones, and elegies to the planet. Blending resourcefulness and wonder with all the compassionate humanity of her prose, How to Fly will both delight Kingsolver's devoted readership and welcome a host of new readers to her startling verse, while revealing an intimate side to her creative practice as yet unseen.

            Wanting to Tell You Everything
              

            Wanting to Tell You Everything (Paperback)

            By Brooke-Carr, Elizabeth; Edited by Alterio, Maxine; McCurdie, Carolyn; Beynon, Claire; Powell, Jenny

            The poems of Elizabeth Brooke-Carr (1940-2019) speak of a world where there is always light somewhere, a brightness that delineates mountains and rivers, coaxes birds to be provocative and human beings to fly. Each ordinary moment leaps from its skin - weeds learn their colours f...rom the sun and the unbroken peel from apples at an apple fest can circle the world. The poems speak, too, of those places where shadow prevails, taking care to record what the poet noticed there. Even with her life under threat Elizabeth found things to laugh and rage at. The award-winning poet made her life in Dunedin and was loved by many. Wanting to tell you everything is Elizabeth's much awaited first collection - one she would have made if she'd stayed alive, but instead her writing group finished the task and the final book shines with that aroha.
