            Sam Moore's Instagram account and Facebook page Ugly Ink went viral when he started posting images of classic Kiwi stereotypes. They're characters that every New Zealander can relate to, including everyone's gran 'Helpful Beryl', dress code-breaker 'Wedding Kane', the forever hel...pful 'Office Jan', and rugged 'Hilux Surf Drew' among others. Sam's humour in these images gently and affectionately pokes fun at Kiwi culture, providing many snorts of recognition.

            The seat of the Trelawney family for over 700 years, Trelawney Castle was once the jewel of the Cornish coast. Each successive Earl spent with abandon, adding and extending, turning the house and grounds into a sprawling, extravagant palimpsest of wings, turrets and follies. But ...as the centuries passed the Earls of Trelawney, their senses and ambition dulled by generations of pampered living, failed to develop other skills. Now in 2008 the house - its paintings and furniture sold off to pay death duties, its grounds diminished, the gardens choked with weeds - has begun to resemble its owners: faded, crumbling, and out-of-date. A relic. A remnant. A folly. Jane, the dowdy, unhappy wife of the current Earl, Kitto, scraping a life for her children and in-laws in a few draughty rooms of the big house, is trapped by Trelawney Castle; and Blaze, Kitto's sister, making a killing in the City - and a complete turkey of her personal life - is exiled from it. Long-estranged, the two women are brought back together when a letter arrives; and soon after it, an unwelcome young guest. Grudgingly reunited by this strange turn of events, Blaze and Jane must band together to take charge of their new charge - and save the house of Trelawney. With formidable sharpness, delicious irreverence and a very wicked wit, House of Trelawney is a glorious send-up of recession Britain and its carnival of bastard bankers, down-at-heel toffs, reality TV gawkers and clipboard-wielding local planning authorities; an eccentric and radiant gem of a satire that asks how we are connected, what we owe to one another, and how to carry on existing in a world which has outgrown us.

            *PRE-ORDER NOW* The bestselling author of A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian is in top form tackling money laundering and the state of Britain today in this vibrant, laugh-out-loud novel George Pantis is in a pickle. After walking out on his wife Rosie on Referendum night 2...016 to shack up with hairdresser 'Brexit Brenda' next door, he thinks he's got it made - especially when he wins millions on a Kosovan lottery he only vaguely remembers entering. Unfortunately, he's forgotten his password and can't get at his money. Which is a problem because he suddenly has to contend with lots of forceful new friends desperate to know his mother's maiden name. As things quickly get out of hand, George must make a mad dash from Sheffield to the Adriatic - and into the arms of organized crime gangs who specialise in illegal kidney transplants and heroin smuggling. George is in need of rescue - both from this pickle and from himself. But will his son Sensible Sid, Brenda and Rosie put aside their differences long enough to help? And might the journey bring this dysfunctional family back together? ----------------------------------------- Praise for Marina Lewycka 'Lewycka is a seriously talented comic writer' Time Out 'Pure laugh-out-loud social comedy' Daily Mail 'Hilarious and horrifying . . . funny, clever and well observed' Guardian 'Marina Lewycka is funny, intelligent and refreshingly generous.
