              A brilliant debut from a neurodivergent author that shows the magical, sensitive world of a woman on the autism spectrum. A young woman gets ready to go to a party. She arrives, feels overwhelmed, leaves, and then returns. Minutely attuned to the people who come into her view, an...d alternating between alienation and profound connection, she is hilarious, self-aware, sometimes acerbic, and painfully honest. And by the end of the night, she's shown us something radical about love, loss, and the need to belong.

              'Jessie had said they should go at midnight. It's the gods' time, she said, narrowing her eyes dramatically. Anything could happen.' It's the 1980s, and Ali and her best friend, Jessie, are on the cusp. In the simmering heat of summer, in their small coastal town, they are starti...ng to chafe at the restrictions put on them by their teachers, their parents, and each other. Then Jessie suffers a devastating accident, and both their lives are forever changed. When Ali is an adult, with a young daughter herself, the news of Jessie's death unlocks the memories of that summer, forcing her to reckon with her own role in what happened to Jessie so many years ago. As this stunning debut moves back and forth in time, and Ali's secrets are forced into the light, Kate Ryan asks profound questions about responsibility and blame, and, ultimately, about love.

              The New Climate War: The fight to take back our planet

              The New Climate War: The fight to take back our planet (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              A renowned climate scientist shows how fossil-fuel companies have waged a thirty-year campaign to deflect blame and responsibility and to delay action on climate change, and offers a battle plan for how we can save the planet. Recycle. Fly less. Eat less meat. These are some of t...he ways that we've been told can slow climate change. But the inordinate emphasis on behaviour is the result of a marketing campaign that has succeeded in placing the responsibility for fixing climate change squarely on the shoulders of individuals. Fossil-fuel companies have followed the example of other industries deflecting blame (think 'Guns don't kill people, people kill people') or greenwashing. Meanwhile, they've blocked efforts to regulate or price carbon emissions, have run PR campaigns aimed at discrediting viable alternatives, and have abdicated their responsibility to fix the problem they've created. The result has been disastrous for our planet. In The New Climate War, Mann argues that all is not lost. He draws the battle lines between the people and the polluters - fossil-fuel companies, right-wing plutocrats, and petro-states. And he outlines a plan for forcing our governments and corporations to wake up and make real change, including- a common-sense, attainable approach to carbon pricing - and a revision of the well-intentioned but flawed currently proposed version of the Green New Deal; allowing renewable energy to compete fairly against fossil fuels; debunking the false narratives and arguments that have worked their way into the climate debate and driven a wedge between even those who support climate-change solutions; and combatting climate doomism and despair-mongering. With immensely powerful vested interests aligned in defence of the fossil-fuel status quo, the societal tipping point won't happen without the active participation of citizens everywhere aiding in the collective push forward. This book will reach, inform, and enable citizens everywhere to join this battle

              A jewel of a short novel, a magic weave of intertwined fates. 'Maybe they imagined they were stars, or angels, or insane birds. Sometimes they grabbed each other's hands and legs and twisted them so harshly that it was a miracle nothing broke. When they all squatted in the water ...with just their hands above the surface, it was as if they were praying. There was something terrifying about it.' Six girls grow up on a piece of land between two rivers, belonging to no state. Swimming is their passion, but also a way to reach out to the world. The girls form a team of synchronised swimming, performing skilful tricks in and under water. Far away in Helsinki, Anita falls in love with the performing Spiderman. In California, Paulina gets on board a fishing boat to acquire the ingredients for the traditional soup in her homeland. On a Caribbean island, Betty gambles away all her money. The stories of young rootless women, suffering from undefined feelings of longing, come together in a dazzling multifaceted novella, reaching across the world.

              A powerful, bold true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix America's broken system of justice - from one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time. The US has the highest rate of incarceration in the world. The prison populat...ion has increased from 300,000 in the early 1970s to more than two million now. One in every 15 people is expected to go to prison. For black men, the most incarcerated group in America, this figure rises to one out of every three. Bryan Stevenson grew up a member of a poor black community in the racially segregated South. He was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need- the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of the US's criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young black man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn't commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, startling racial inequality, and legal brinksmanship - and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.
