Celebrating Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice
In 2013 Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice turns 200. Again and again in polls conducted around the world, it is regularly chosen as the favourite novel of all time. Read and studied from Cheltenham to China, there are Jane Austen Societies from Boston to Buenos Aires, dedicated to sharing the delights of Jane Austen’s masterpiece. Here is the tale of how Pride and Prejudice came to be written, its ﬁrst reception in a world that didn’t take much notice of it and then its growing popularity. As well as discussing the famous characters, Susannah Fullerton looks at the style of the novel – its wicked irony, its brilliant structuring, its revolutionary use of ‘free indirect speech’. Readers through the years have both loved the book and hated it – the reactions of writers, politicians, artists and explorers can tell us as much about the reader as they do about the book itself. Pride and Prejudice has morphed into many strange and interesting forms – screen adaptations, sequels, prequels and updates. Happily Ever After explores these and the wilder shores of zombies, porn, dating manuals, T-shirts, tourism and therapy.

J. Mordaunt Crook
Rick Mannen, Clive Streeter & Stuart Gibbard
J. Mordaunt Crook is one of the leading authorities on Victorian architecture and is the author of numerous books on the subject.
William Burges (1827–81) was arguably the greatest of all Victorian architects. More than just the creator of a modest number of fabulous, and fabulously expensive, buildings, Burges dreamed of hundreds more, designed dozens, and in addition created some of the most remarkable furniture and jewellery of all time. Rich, clever and short-lived, Burges was an art-architect and explosively inventive. A brilliant talker, pungent critic and hilarious companion, he was one of Victorian London’s great eccentrics and networkers. The major buildings that he completed include Cork Cathedral, Cardiﬀ Castle and his own astonishing Tower House in Kensington.

Old House Eco Handbook A Practical Guide to Eco Retroﬁtting
Roger Hunt & Marianne Suhr The unforgettable silhouette of Eilean Donan Castle at the conﬂuence of three sea lochs in the Highlands, seen against the majestic backdrop of the mountains of Kintail, is an iconic image of Scotland, but not many people realise that the castle was only built in 1932. Along with Lutyens’s slightly better known Lindisfarne of 1906, and Castle Drogo of 1930, it represents the astonishing survival of a nostalgia for the Middle Ages. Beyond the conventional extravagance of the millionaire recreating the grandeur of medieval complexes like Leeds Castle, there were the demented fantasies of the likes of William Randolph Hearst whose St Donat’s in Wales boasted thirty bathrooms and a swimming pool with underwater lighting. Amid all these extraordinary fantasies is a more serious narrative about the conservation and restoration of historic monuments. At the end of the twentieth century there is an incredible resurgence of neo-medievalism with brand-new castles being built in England, Scotland and Wales, often against substantial opposition, but undoubtedly resulting in remarkable and impressive structures. This book tells their story.

Cycling Science How Rider and Machine Work Together
The much-loved fellwalker Alfred Wainwright created one of the truly great walking challenges – to walk across the whole of England. The Coast to Coast route was Wainwright’s last great venture and has become his greatest legacy to long distance walkers – a beautifully simple proposition, linking three national parks that lie between the Irish and the North Seas. Accompanying the BBC television series, this book follows Julia Bradbury as she re-traces Wainwright’s grand traverse. The book collects together all six stages of the walk from the TV series, with Julia’s commentary on her experience of the walk accompanied by stills, evocative landscape photography, and Wainwright’s celebrated line drawings. Julia crosses this changing landscape in sun, wind and rain, learns something of its history and meets the people that make up almost 200 miles of northern England’s most glorious countryside.

Best Walks in the Yorkshire Dales John Burland
Daphne du Maurier (1907–89) is the author of Rebecca, Jamaica Inn, Frenchman’s Creek, the short stories Don’t Look Now and The Birds among many others which continue to thrill and fascinate readers worldwide. The daughter of Sir Gerald du Maurier, the leading actor manager of his day, she grew up in a wildly imaginative ‘Peter Pan’ world peopled by London’s leading writers and actors, before arriving in Cornwall at the age of 19. The place and its people inspired her to write her ﬁrst novel The Loving Spirit. This bewitching evocation of place was to remain a feature of Daphne du Maurier’s writing, and the source of much of her enduring popularity. Hilary Macaskill explores the homes and landscapes of Daphne du Maurier’s life, and how these relate to her work in sometimes unexpected ways.

The Story of the Dig for Victory Campaign
Before Breakfast at Tiﬀany’s, Audrey Hepburn was a little-known actress with few ﬁlm roles; after it she was one of the world’s most famous fashion, style and screen icons. It was this ﬁlm that matched her with Givenchy’s ‘little black dress’. Truman Capote’s original novel is itself a modern classic selling huge numbers every year. This is the story of how one shy, uncertain, inexperienced young actress was persuaded to take on a role she at ﬁrst thought too hard-edged and amoral – and how it made Audrey Hepburn into gamine, elusive Holly Golightly in the little black dress – and a star for the rest of her life.
Sam Wasson studied ﬁlm at Wesleyan University and the USC School of Cinematic Arts. He is the author of A Splurch in the Kisser: The Movies of Blake Edwards, and Paul on Mazursky. He lives in Los Angeles.

After food rationing was introduced in 1940, and German U-boats threatened merchant shipping, the Ministry of Agriculture decided Britain must become more self-suﬃcient. The result was one of Britain’s most successful propaganda campaigns – Dig for Victory – encouraging every man and woman to turn their garden over to cultivating vegetables. Daniel Smith tells the story of this remarkable time when spades, forks and bean canes became weapons the ordinary citizen could take up against the enemy. It is a war story without ﬁghting, one that shows how even ‘The Little Man with the Spade’ did his bit for Victory. Daniel Smith has written on subjects as diverse as Sherlock Holmes, serendipity and Cockney rhyming slang.

The Man Who Invented the Daleks
The Inside Story of Pink Floyd
Alwyn W. Turner
The Daleks are one of the most iconic and fearsome creations in television history. Since their ﬁrst appearance in 1963, they have fascinated and terriﬁed generations of British children. They sprang from the imagination of Terry Nation, one of the most proliﬁc television writers that Britain ever produced and the man responsible for cult classics such as Blake’s 7 and Survivors. However, it is for his genocidal pepperpots that Nation is most often remembered, and on the 50th anniversary of their creation they continue to top Saturdaynight ratings. Now, Turner explores the origins of Doctor Who’s greatest villains and sheds light on a strange world of ambitious writers, producers and performers without whom British culture today would look very diﬀerent.
This history of Pink Floyd – the ﬁrst for ﬁfteen years – has already been acknowledged as the ﬁnal word on this remarkable band’s life. Lucidly written and incorporating over one hundred new and exclusive interviews, it covers Pink Floyd from their Cambridge beginnings in the early sixties to their triumphant re-formation at Live 8 in 2005, 24 years after their last live performance together and the death of their troubled founder-member Syd Barrett a year later. Pink Floyd’s albums remain some of rock’s biggest sellers every year and David Gilmour and Roger Waters still do arena and stadium gigs. This edition is fully updated and includes a new chapter.

How ENSA Entertained the Troops During World War II
How Joss Whedon Re-Wrote Popular Culture – A Biography
Once the Second World War was declared, it was clear that good morale among troops would be crucial. The Entertainment National Services Association was created to send the nation’s best performers to the troops. ENSA gave a ﬁrst break to such postwar stars as Tommy Cooper and Frankie Howerd, as well as enshrining the young Vera Lynn forever as the forces’ sweetheart. Andrew Merriman talks to surviving ENSA veterans from Vera Lynn to Dame Beryl Grey, uncovering the extraordinary adventures of the ordinary men and women whose contribution to the war eﬀort was song, dance and laughter.
Ranging across cinema, television and comics, Joss Whedon is a male writer whose most famous creation is a girl-power icon. He deals in classic themes of love, death and redemption, and was one of the ﬁrst in the entertainment industry to harness the power of the internet to engage with his fans. This revealing biography features extensive original interviews with Whedon himself, as well as many of his collaborators and stars. With candid behind-the-scenes accounts of the making of ground-breaking shows Buﬀ y the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Fireﬂy, the book also details Whedon’s contribution to modern cinema, as the writer, and sometimes director, behind hit movies such as Speed, Toy Story and The Avengers.

The putt is often the most crucial shot in a golfer’s game. Short, requiring great skill and subtlety, and potentially terminal, it is also one of the most highly pressured. Consequently, players at all levels approach putting with trepidation.

Drawing on the stories of players both amateur and professional, Robin oﬀers practical advice and shows how his intuitive mental conditioning techniques can be used to master this much-misunderstood skill. We frequently play our best golf when we relax and simply enjoy it. So why not putt like we just don’t care? Robin Sieger is a leading success strategist.

The Secret Lives of Double Agent George Blake
40 NEW TITLES
In 1961 George Blake was exposed as a Soviet spy – a traitor who had cost the lives of dozens of his fellow British agents. Yet his remarkable story touches not only the depths of treachery, but the heights of heroism. During the Second World War, the teenage Blake performed sterling deeds for the Dutch resistance. Post-war, he worked for the Allies and, when MI6 sent him to Seoul in 1949, he demonstrated formidable stoicism following his capture and imprisonment by North Korea. Upon his release in 1953, Blake was viewed as an exemplary British agent. But what MI6 weren’t to know was that they were harbouring one of the worst traitors of the Cold War. When his treachery was ﬁnally uncovered, Blake was sentenced to forty-two years in prison, but a dramatic jailbreak saw him escape to Moscow, where he has been honoured as a hero ever since. Drawing on unpublished records from Blake’s trial, as well as original interviews with former spies and the man himself, The Greatest Traitor sheds new light on this most complex of characters, and presents a fascinating shadow history of the twentieth century.

To celebrate the new fell-running season, Aurum are re-issuing Richard Askwith’s classic Feet in the Clouds. It includes an introduction from bestselling author Robert Macfarlane and an epilogue from Richard Askwith. The concept of fell-running is simple: it’s a sport that involves running over mountains. Richard Askwith explores the world of fellrunning by spending a season running as many of the great fell races as he can from Borrowdale to Ben Nevis, an arduous schedule that tests the very limits of one’s stamina and courage. This is a chronicle of a masochistic but admirable sporting obsession, one of the oldest extreme sports and a lyrical tribute to Britain’s mountains.

The Secret Listeners How the Y Service Intercepted the German Codes for Bletchley Park
Sinclair McKay Behind the celebrated code-breaking at Bletchley Park lies another secret. Before the German war machine’s messages could be decoded, operatives around the world had to intercept them. This is the story of the – usually very young – men and women sent out to far-ﬂung outposts to listen in for Bletchley Park – the heady nightlife in Cairo, ﬁling cabinets full of snakes in North Africa, and ﬂights out to Delhi by luxurious ﬂying boat. They were part of the ‘Y’ (for ‘Wireless’) Service: the Listening Service – an organisation just as secret as Bletchley Park during the war, but nowadays still little known and unrecognised. In the follow-up to his Sunday Times-bestselling The Secret Life of Bletchley Park, Sinclair McKay chronicles, through dozens of interviews with surviving veterans, the history and achievements of this remarkable group of people. The paperback of The Secret Life of Bletchley Park has sold over 160,000 copies through TCM and major national outdoor advertising will support the paperback publication of The Secret Listeners.

After a little-noticed debut and a follow-up that failed to chart, Pye Records threatened to annul The Kinks’ contract. But in August 1964 they released their third single, ‘You Really Got Me’. It reached No.1 and also entered the US Top Ten the same year, marking the breakthrough of one of Britain’s most innovative and inﬂuential bands. Ray and Dave Davies crafted the soundtrack that made London swing again. Pocked by sibling rivalry, furious on-stage violence, walkouts, overdoses, a careerthrottling ban from the US, gross selfindulgence, and the band’s curious rebirth as Eighties stadium rockers, theirs is one of the greatest stories in British pop history.

A Summer Whirl Through the English Social Season
‘Happy Valley’ was the name given to the region of Kenya’s Central Highlands where a community of aﬄuent white expatriates settled between the wars, including Karen Blixen, Beryl Markham and Idina Sackville. The Happy Valley set’s notoriety was sealed in 1931 with the still unsolved murder of the Earl of Errol. What is left now? Juliet Barnes explores Happy Valley in a remarkable archaeological quest to ﬁnd the homes and haunts of these extraordinary and vanished people. With the help of African guides, and the memories of elderly expats, she ﬁnds a revelation of the state of modern Africa that makes the gilded era of the Happy Valley set seem even more fantastic. Juliet Barnes was born and raised in Kenya and educated at St Andrew’s University and The London School of Journalism. She has published books for adults and children.
Every year come April, since the days of the Prince Regent in the early nineteenth century, young men and women have structured their summer diary around a series of showpiece social events all within reach of London that one just must be seen at, darling. The Boat Race and the Cheltenham Festival in March provide the unoﬃcial overture, and then it is the Chelsea Flower Show followed by Royal Ascot, Glorious Goodwood, the Derby, Henley Regatta, opera at Glyndebourne and Cowes Week. Now Sophie Campbell sets out to tackle the Season – in its modern form, by squeezing her feet into unsuitable shoes and waving the credit card to magic up an unfeasible hat and go to every single event in the calendar, and in its history, by examining why it arose, how it has evolved, and where it is going. The result is a delightful and often hilarious journey through an utterly English institution in the company of a witty, intelligent and determined participant, which builds into an alternative anatomy of Englishness in all its endearing tradition and daftness.

‘Chaudhuri can write better than just about everyone of his generation’
‘Moving, tough-minded, and distinctive, a memoir the likes of which nobody else could write’
Jonathan Coe Benjamin Kunkel, author of Indecision
Amit Chaudhuri is the author of ﬁve highly acclaimed novels. His latest novel is The Immortals. He is also a poet, a musician and a highly regarded critic. Amit Chaudhuri lives in Calcutta and Norwich.
Marco Roth helped found the magazine n+1 with Chad Harbach and Benjamin Kunkel. Recipient of the 2011 Shattuck Prize for literary criticism, this is his ﬁrst book.
A Family Romance
Two Years in the City
With the precociousness expected of the only child of a doctor and a classical musician – from the time he could get his toddler tongue to pronounce a word like ‘deoxyribonucleic acid’ or recite a French poem – Marco Roth was able to share his parents’ New York, a world centered around house concerts, a private library of literary classics, and dinner discussions of the latest advances in medicine. That world ended when his father began to suﬀer the worst eﬀects of the AIDS virus that had infected him in the early 1980s. What this family would not talk about for years came to dominate the lives of its surviving members, often in unexpected ways. The Scientists is a story of how we ﬁrst learn from our parents and how we then learn to see them as separate individuals; it’s a story of how preciousness can slow us down when it comes to understanding our desires and other people’s. A memoir of parents and children in the tradition of Edmund Gosse, Henry Adams and J. R. Ackerley, The Scientists grapples with a troubled and emotional inheritance, in a style that is both elegiac and deﬁant.
In 1999, Amit Chaudhuri moved back to Calcutta, the city in which he was born. It was a place he had loved in his youth and the place he had made his name writing about. But upon his return he discovered that the Calcutta of his imagination had receded and another had taken its place. Lyrical, observant and profound, Calcutta is a personal account of two years (2009–2011) spent in one of the least known – yet greatest – cities of our time by one of our leading novelists. Using the historic elections of 2011 as a fulcrum, Chaudhuri looks back to the nineteenth century, when the city burst with a new vitality, and towards the twenty-ﬁrst, when – utterly changed – it seems to be on the verge of another turn. Along the way he evokes all that is most particular and extraordinary. From the homeless and the working class to the old, declining haute bourgeois; from the new malls and hotels to old houses being destroyed by developers; from politicians on their way out to the city’s ﬁtful attempts to embrace globalisation, Calcutta brings a multifarious universe to life.

‘Fantastic’ Time Out 5-Star Review
Elisa Segrave is the author of The Diary of a Breast, about her battle with cancer, and the novel Ten Men (both published by Faber). She writes for many newspapers and magazines, including the London Review of Books, the Guardian, the Independent and The Lady.
Guardian Steve Boggan was Chief Reporter of the Independent and co-founder of the investigations unit. He is now a feature writer for the Guardian, The Times and the Evening Standard.
Follow the Money
Blue Lady Dancing
A Month in the Life of a Ten-Dollar Bill
A Memoir of My Mother
What do you do if you want to get underneath the skin of a country – to understand its people and feel its heartbeat? You can follow the rest of the tourists, or you can take the advice of Watergate reporter Bob Woodward’s source, ‘Deep Throat’, and ‘follow the money.’ Starting out in Lebanon, Kansas – the geographical centre of America – journalist Steve Boggan did just that by setting free a ten-dollar-bill and accompanying it on an epic journey for thirty days and thirty nights through six states across 3,300 miles armed only with a sense of humour and a small, increasingly grubby, set of clothes. As he cuts crops with farmers in Kansas, pursues a repowoman from Colorado, gets wasted with a blues band in Arkansas and hangs out at a quarterback’s mansion in St Louis, Boggan enters the lives of ordinary (and extraordinary) people as they receive – and pass on – the bill. What emerges is a chaotic, aﬀectionate and funny portrait of a modern-day America that tourists rarely see.
When Elisa Segrave uncovered a cache of wartime diaries written by her mother, she had no idea that she would be brought face to face with a character utterly diﬀerent from the troubled woman who had become so reliant on her. Now, on the pages before her, Segrave encountered Anne Hamilton-Grace, a young woman who had grown up in immense privilege and luxury but who leapt at the ﬁrst opportunity to join the war eﬀort. Through determination and eﬀort, she excelled in the world of secret intelligence. Leaving the world of ﬁnishing school and hunt balls behind her, Anne’s journey took her to Hut C at Bletchley Park, to Bomber Command in Grantham and, ﬁnally, to a newly liberated Germany. In Blue Lady Dancing, Segrave opens the pages of her mother’s diaries to us and recreates her life both before and after the war. At once a vivid recreation of a dramatic era and a powerful portrait of a mother-daughter relationship, this is an original and aﬀecting work about what it means to come to know someone through their writing; about how Anne unwittingly found a way to link her life with her daughter’s decades after they had given up trying to communicate.

What does it mean to salt wisely and well? Authors Fritz Gubler and David Glynn advocate a ‘salt wise’ approach to using salt, whether as an ingredient or condiment, advising that we need to be aware of the salt we eat. We need to know how salt tastes, and if we have used too much or too little. We need to use the right salt, in the right amount, for the right dish. To that end this book acts as a comprehensive guide to today’s bewildering array of salts, to help you ‘know your salt’. The authors also state that we need to get rid of the salt shaker when salting food at the table. We need to use better salt more sparingly, rather than shaking table salt with abandon. Being ‘salt wise’ also means eating well, and this book provides all the tools we need to make food that is healthy, tasty and ecologically viable.

The American muscle car was never made for such trivial details as comfort and handling. Instead, it was built for straight line speed and quickly became the ride of choice for power hungry racers and serious gearheads. In a country where performance was measured in brute force, a quarter mile at a time, the muscle car was the perfect machine. These these down and dirty, high performing beauties have now earned their place in the automotive pantheon. Classic muscle cars now fetch upwards of a million dollars at auctions and feature in any story of America’s automotive glory days. This lavishly illustrated volume exhibits the art of the muscle car at its ﬁnest, with detailed essays and portrait galleries celebrating all-American icons including the Camaro and Chevelle SS, Daytona Charger, Talladega Torino and many more.

Each portrait is accompanied by a concise, authoritative proﬁle of the machine. All the classic bikes are here: the pre World War II BMWs that deﬁned performance in that era, like the R5, the military R12 that carried the Wehrmacht as it blitzkrieged its way across Europe, the R75M that accompanied Rommel’s Panzers in North Africa, the Earles forked R69S that made the perfect platform for mounting a Steib sidecar and the GS (Gelände Sport) series that launched a dual sport revolution. Every bike family is covered – from the side valve machines from the early years through the early overhead valve performance bikes to the latest parallel twins and inline four cylinder sport bikes. From the ﬁrst model, the R32 that catapulted BMW out of the ruins of World War I, to the latest (and fastest) model, the World Super Bike-dominating S1000RR, this book captures nearly a century of motorcycling excellence.

Basti Intizar Husain
Going to the Dogs Erich Kästner
Testing the Current William McPherson
Set in Berlin after the Wall Street crash of 1929 and before the Nazi takeover, the moralist in question is Jakob Fabian, a young man with an excellent education but no prospects. Erich Kastner (1899–1974) was born in Dresden. His ﬁrst book of poems was published in 1928, as was the children’s book Emil and the Detectives, which quickly achieved worldwide fame. Translated by Cyrus Brooks. Introduction by Rodney Livingstone.
In this remarkable 1984 debut novel, the Pulitzer Prize-winning book critic leavens his wide-eyed protagonist’s perspective with mature reﬂection and wry humor, creating a scrupulously observed, kaleidoscopic portrait that will shimmer in readers’ minds long after the ﬁnal page is turned. William McPherson (b. 1933) is a distinguished literary critic, editor, journalist, and novelist. Introduction by D.T. Max.
Basti is the great Pakistani novel, a beautifully written, brilliantly inventive reckoning with the violent history of a country whose turbulence, ambitions, and uncertainties increasingly concern the whole world. Intizar Husain (b. 1923) is a journalist and novelist, widely considered the most signiﬁcant living ﬁction writer in Urdu. He migrated to Pakistan in 1947 and now lives in Lahore.

The Gate Natsume Soseki
We Have Only This Life to Live
The Diary of a Man in Despair Friedrich Reck
Speedboat Renata Adler
Pitch Dark Renata Adler
The Hall of Uselessness
‘Elegant, funny, vivid, brilliant, luminous, exquisite!’ The New York Times Book Review Winner of the Ernest Hemingway Prize for Best First Novel in 1976. It has been more than thirty-ﬁve years since Renata Adler’s Speedboat charged through the literary establishment, blasting genre walls and pointing the way for a newly liberated way of writing. This unclassiﬁable work is simultaneously novel, memoir, commonplace book, confession, and critique. With an author interview by Guy Trebay.
Renata Adler’s follow-up to Speedboat is a book of questions. It is also a book of false starts, red herrings, misunderstandings, and all-too-ﬂeeting revelations. Told in her celebrated fragmented style, Pitch Dark transcends its parts to come to the kind of wisdom achievable only after a relentless quest. Renata Adler is an American journalist, critic, and novelist With an author interview by Guy Trebay.
This moving and deceptively simple story, a melancholy tale shot through with glimmers of joy, beauty, and gentle wit, is an understated masterpiece by the ﬁrst great writer of modern Japan. At the end of his life, Natsume Soseki declared The Gate, originally published in 1910, to be his favorite among all his novels. This new translation captures the original’s oblique grace and corrects errors that marred the ﬁrst English version. Translated by William F. Sibley. Introduction by Pico Iyer.

A moving testament of a decent if sometimes deluded man struggling to do the right thing in a depraved world, The Diary of a Man in Despair was published only after the author’s death in Dachau and after Germany was defeated. It is a stark and astonishing snapshot of life in Germany between 1936 and 1944. Friedrich Reck (1884–1945) died in a concentration camp in Dachau. Translated by Paul Rubens.
Simon Leys The Hall of Uselessness collects the ﬁnest of Leys’s essays.

Selected Poems of Vvedensky
May 9781590176306 Paperback £8.99 96 pp 178x108 mm
Alexander Vvedensky was co-founder with poet Daniil Kharms of OBERIU, a small avant-garde collective in late-1920s Soviet Leningrad. Vvedensky came of age under the Soviet system and claimed ‘time, death, and God’ as his main themes. After incarceration from 1931–1933 for ‘literary sabotage’, Vvedensky kept his poetry private, sharing it only with Kharms and others in their tiny underground circle of writers and philosophers. When war broke out in 1941, the authorities rearrested the pair as potential subversives: Kharms died in a prison asylum and Vvedensky in a prison transport. Both were only thirty-seven years old. Their manuscripts were published during the collapse of the Soviet Union, half a century after the deaths of the authors. An Invitation for Me to Think is Vvedensky’s ﬁrst collection to appear in English. Translated by Eugene Ostashevsky.

For more than two decades he was a senior lecturer and a consultant in cardiology at St. Thomas’s Hospital, London, before retiring from medicine in 1986. He subsequently obtained a degree in Italian and regularly wrote and broadcast for the BBC on Italian topics. Proper Doctoring is a book that is admirably direct, as well as wise, witty, deeply humane, and, frankly, indispensable.
An Invitation for Me to Think
NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS
Paul Hazard was one of the master historians of the twentieth century, and this is by common consent his masterwork, an ambitious study in intellectual history whose breadth of learning and authority is widely acknowledged to this day. With clarity as well as a sharp eye for historical detail, Hazard explores the period from 1680 to 1715, a turning point in Western history. Introduction by Anthony Grafton.
“It is a shameful thing to win a war.” The reliably unorthodox Curzio Malaparte’s own service as an Italian liaison oﬃcer with the Allies during the invasion of Italy was the basis for this searing and surreal novel, in which the contradictions inherent in any attempt to simultaneously conquer and liberate a people beset the triumphant but ingenuous American forces as they make their way up the peninsula. Translated by David Moore.
For the past ﬁfty years, the New York Review of Books has covered virtually every international revolution and movement of consequence by dispatching the world’s most brilliant writers to write eyewitness accounts. The New York Review Abroad not only brings together twenty-eight of the most riveting of these pieces but includes epilogues that update and reassess the political situation (by either the original authors or by Ian Buruma).

Older than the Egyptian pyramids, older than Stonehenge, for 5,000 years the ancient megalithic tomb at Newgrange in County Meath has housed the remains of Stone Age ‘aristocracy’. Modern archaeological techniques have revealed much about the lives of our Stone Age ancestors, but Newgrange still retains many of its secrets. This book uncovers, in words and illustrations, the extent, and limitations, of our knowledge of this world-famous site.
This unique and powerful graphic novel brings to life the legendary ﬁgure that is Cú Chulainn. A curse has been cast over Emain Macha, the Boreal land of Ireland, laying all but one man into a deep sleep. Cú Chulainn stands as its lone protector, as an army of 10,000 men set oﬀ on forty day quest across Ireland in order to Claim Emain Macha for their own.

Lockout & Legacy
The James Joyce Story
Portrait of a Dubliner
The Dublin 1913 lockout is often viewed as the most severe and signiﬁcant industrial dispute in Irish history, between approximately 20,000 workers and 300 employers. Central to the dispute was the workers’ right to unionise. The book outlines the poverty and poor living conditions of Dubliners at the time, setting the scene for the lockout.
