              Get Out meets The Devil Wears Prada in this electric debut about the tension that unfurls when two young Black women meet against the starkly white backdrop of book publishing. Twenty-six-year-old editorial assistant Nella Rogers is tired of being the only Black employee at Wagne...r Books. Fed up with the isolation and the micro-aggressions, she's thrilled when Hazel starts working in the cubicle beside hers. They've only just started comparing natural hair care regimens, though, when a string of uncomfortable events cause Nella to become Public Enemy Number One and Hazel, the Office Darling. Then the notes begin to appear on Nella's desk: LEAVE WAGNER. NOW. It's hard to believe Hazel is behind these hostile messages. But as Nella starts to spiral and obsess over the sinister forces at play, she soon realises that there is a lot more at stake than her career. A whip-smart and dynamic thriller and sly social commentary, The Other Black Girl will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last twist.

              'Disturbing and powerful ... I loved it' Leila Slimani, author of Lullaby Everything started one Saturday in July... Anna and Constant Guillot and their two daughters live in the remote mountain village of Carmac. Everyone in Carmac knows each other - that is until Bakary and Syl...via Langlois arrive with their three children, the first black family to have lived in the village. The new family's impressive chalet and expensive cars are in stark contrast with the modesty of those of their neighbours, yet despite their initial differences, the Langlois and the Guillots form an uneasy friendship. But when the Guillot's finances come under strain, the underlying class and racial tensions of their relationship come to a breaking point, and the unthinkable happens... How could a seemingly 'normal' person commit an atrocious crime? And how can that person's loved ones ever come to terms with it afterwards?

Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the court of King Peleus and his perfect son Achilles. Despite their dif...ferences, Achilles befriends the shamed prince, and as they grow into young men skilled in the arts of war and medicine, their bond blossoms into something deeper - despite the displeasure of Achilles's mother Thetis, a cruel sea goddess. But when word comes that Helen of Sparta has been kidnapped, Achilles must go to war in distant Troy and fulfill his destiny. Torn between love and fear for his friend, Patroclus goes with him, little knowing that the years that follow will test everything they hold dear.

              The spellbinding story of Lady Chatterley's Lover, and the society that put it on trial; the story of a novel and its ripple effects across half a century, and about the transformative and triumphant power of fiction itself. D H Lawrence is dying. Exiled in the Mediterranean, he ...dreams of the past. There are the years early in his marriage during the war, where his desperation drives him to commit a terrible betrayal. And there is a woman in an Italian courtyard, her chestnut hair red with summer. Jacqueline and her husband have already been marked out for greatness. Passing through New York, she slips into a courtroom where a book, not a man, is brought to trial. A young woman and a young man meet amid the restricted section of a famous library, and make love. Scattered and blown by the winds of history, their stories are bound together, and brought before the jury. On both sides of the Atlantic, society is asking, and continues to ask: is it Obscenity - or is it Tenderness?

              A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The spectacular new novel from the bestselling author of JONATHAN STRANGE & MR NORRELL, 'one of our greatest living authors' New York Magazine Piranesi lives in the House. Perhaps he always has. In his notebooks, day after day..., he makes a clear and careful record of its wonders: the labyrinth of halls, the thousands upon thousands of statues, the tides that thunder up staircases, the clouds that move in slow procession through the upper halls. On Tuesdays and Fridays Piranesi sees his friend, the Other. At other times he brings tributes of food to the Dead. But mostly, he is alone. Messages begin to appear, scratched out in chalk on the pavements. There is someone new in the House. But who are they and what do they want? Are they a friend or do they bring destruction and madness as the Other claims? Lost texts must be found; secrets must be uncovered. The world that Piranesi thought he knew is becoming strange and dangerous. The Beauty of the House is immeasurable; its Kindness infinite. ***** 'What a world Susanna Clarke conjures into being ... Piranesi is an exquisite puzzle-box' DAVID MITCHELL 'It subverts expectations throughout ... Utterly otherworldly' Guardian 'Piranesi astonished me. It is a miraculous and luminous feat of storytelling' MADELINE MILLER 'Brilliantly singular' Sunday Times 'A gorgeous, spellbinding mystery ... This book is a treasure, washed up upon a forgotten shore, waiting to be discovered' ERIN MORGENSTERN 'Head-spinning ... Fully imagined and richly evoked' Telegraph

              A Swim in a Pond in the Rain: From the Man Booker Prize-winning, New York Times-bestselling author of Lincoln in the Bardo (Hardback)

              In A Swim in a Pond in the Rain, George Saunders guides the reader through seven classic Russian short stories he's been teaching for twenty years as a professor in the prestigious Syracuse University graduate MFA creative writing program. Paired with stories by Chekhov, Turgenev..., Tolstoy, and Gogol, these essays are intended for anyone interested in how fiction works and why it's more relevant than ever in these turbulent times. Saunders approaches each of these stories technically yet accessibly, and through them explains how narrative functions; why we stay immersed in a story and why we resist it; and the bedrock virtues a writer must foster. For the process of writing, Saunders reminds us, is as much a craft as it is a quality of openness and a willingness to see the world through new eyes. Funny, frank, and rigorous, A Swim in a Pond in the Rain ultimately shows how great fiction can change a person's life and become a benchmark of one's moral and ethical beliefs.

              The deliciously sharp new novel from Ferdinand Mount, author of the Sunday Times Book of the Year Kiss Myself Goodbye Ferdinand Mount's Making Nice takes place in the murky world of London PR firms, the back rooms of Westminster and on the campaign trail in America and Africa. We... follow the hapless Dickie Pentecost, lately the diplomatic correspondent for a London financial newspaper, together with his wife Jane and daughters Flo, an aspiring ballet dancer, and Lucy, a teenager of fourteen. The family find themselves bound up in an ever more alarming series of unfortunate events revolving around the shady character of Ethel (full name Ethelbert), founder of the dubious publication relations agency Making Nice. With echoes of Evelyn Waugh and The Thick of It, Making Nice is a masterly take on the madness of contemporary society and the limitless human capacity for self-deception.

              A patient at a London hospital. A renowned specialist in antibiotic development. A British-based billionaire. And a fight for survival - not just for one patient, but for the world... It begins with what promises to be a routine visit to a London hospital. Casey Benedict, acclaim...ed undercover journalist, has been reluctantly reassigned at her newspaper while she recovers from her last major investigation, a story that sent her into extremely dangerous territory. Asked to interview a young woman with a life-limiting genetic condition, the patient's doctor alerts Casey to the alarming rise in antibiotic resistant infections, tipping her off about a potential new wonder drug. If the rumours are true, this new antibiotic could be transformative, saving millions of lives, but no one seems to know if the drug even exists. When tragedy unexpectedly strikes, Casey begins to suspect a cover-up and is not prepared to let the story drop, no matter how much danger she - or those she loves most - are put in. A searing, page-turning, pulse-racing thriller that sees Casey pursue government officials, missing doctors and researchers across the world while uncovering dark and terrible truths about the behaviour of major drug companies.
