Sea Prayer Khaled Hosseini A beautifully written and exquisitely illustrated story from the international bestselling author of The Kite Runner ‘My dear Marwan, I look at your profile in the glow of this moon, my boy, your eyelashes like calligraphy, closed in guileless sleep. And I say to you, ‘Hold my hand. Nothing bad will happen.’ On a moonlit beach a father speaks to his sleeping son of his childhood days, recalling his grandfather’s house outside Homs, the stirring of olive trees in the breeze, the bleating of his grandmother’s goat. And he remembers Homs as it was, the bustling city with its crowded lanes, itsmosque and grand souk – before the sky spat bombs and they had to flee. When dawn breaks they and those around them will embark on a perilous sea journey in search of a new home. Khaled Hosseini’s books have sold over 55 million copies worldwide. He is a Goodwill Envoy to the United Nations and the founder of The Khaled Hosseini Foundation. khaledhosseini.com 30 AUGUST 2018 HARDBACK • 9781526602718 • £12.99 TRANSLATION RIGHTS: CHANDLER CRAWFORD AGENCY ANZ PUB DATE 30 AUGUST 2018 HARDBACK • AUS $24.99 • NZ $26.99

Putney Sofka Zinovieff Compelling and disquieting in equal measure, this is a bold new novel for fans of Alan Hollinghurst and Penelope Fitzgerald
p-and-coming composer Ralph is visiting Edmund Greenslay at his riverside home in Putney to discuss a collaboration. Through the house’s colourful rooms and unruly garden flits nineyear old Daphne – dark, teasing, slippery as mercury, more sprite than boy or girl. From the moment their worlds collide, Ralph is consumed by an obsession to make Daphne his. But Ralph is twenty-five and Daphne is only a child, and even in bohemian 1970s London their fast-burgeoning friendship must be kept a secret. Years later, after a turbulent youth and a failed marriage, Daphne watches her daughter come of age and is forced to confront the truth of her own childhood – and an act of violence that has lain hidden for decades. Bold and provocative, Putney is about the lines we tread, the stories we tell ourselves and the secrets we bury. Sofka Zinovieff was born in London. She is the acclaimed author of Eurydice Street, Red Princess and The Mad Boy, Lord Berners, My Grandmother and Me, and one previous novel, The House on Paradise Street. She has written for the Daily Telegraph, the Financial Times, the Times Literary Supplement, the Spectator and the Independent. She lives in Athens and England.

Land of the Living Georgina Harding A hypnotic, exquisitely wrought and devastating meditation on war and its aftermath
he Second World War has ended. Charlie’s experiences at the Battle of Kohima and the months he spent lost in the remote jungles of Assam are now history. Home, newly married to Claire and settled on a farm in Norfolk, he is one of the lucky survivors. Working the land seems one of the best things they can do. But a chasm exists between the two of them. Memories flood Charlie’s mind; at night, on rain-slicked roads and misty mornings in the fields, the past can feel more real than the present. What should be said and what left unsaid? Is it possible to find connection and forge a new life in the wake of unfathomable horror? Rendered in prose of rhythmic precision, subtlety and exceptional sensitivity, Land of the Living is a small yet profound masterpiece. Georgina Harding is the author of four previous novels: The Gun Room, Painter of Silence, which was shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction 2012, The Spy Game and The Solitude of Thomas Cave. She lives in London and on a farm in the Stour Valley, Essex.

ules Epstein has vanished from the world, last seen in the Judean foothills. How a man of his vigour could disappear is an enigma.
Over a year earlier, following the death of his parents, Epstein began his transformation, shedding the possessions he had spent a lifetime accumulating – a watch here, an Old Master there – before travelling from New York to Tel Aviv and checking into the Hilton, intending to do something to commemorate his mother and father. Meanwhile, a novelist leaves her husband and children behind in Brooklyn and arrives at the same hotel, hoping that the view of the pool she used to dive into as a child will unlock her writer’s block. But when a retired professor recruits her for an intriguing project involving Kafka, she is drawn into a mystery that will change her in unimaginable ways.

an the shape of a person’s skull foretell their destiny? For Dorothea Truelove, this is scientific fact. But when her charitable work leads her to Oakgate Prison and teenage seamstress Ruth Butterham, she is faced with another theory: that it is possible to kill with a needle and thread. For Ruth is awaiting trial for murder, a crime she claims to have committed with a supernatural power inherent in her stitches. While practical Dorothea doubts the prisoner’s sanity, she is delighted with this opportunity to explore her fascination with phrenology, and test her hypothesis that madness and murder lay hidden in the contours of Ruth’s skull. But the story Ruth has to tell of her deadly creations – of bitterness and betrayal, of death and dresses – will shake Dorothea’s belief in rationality, and the power of redemption. Laura Purcell is a former bookseller, she lives in Colchester with her husband and pet guinea pigs.

can’t stop thinking about Syria. I can’t forget all that I’ve been through, and, above all, I can’t believe that humanity has become so deaf and blind to the thousands of Syrians with stories like mine. I was lucky enough to live to tell this tale while so many others struggled, fought and died silently. I have written this memoir for them. I hope that it will give a voice to those who are suffering now, and to those who have been silenced forever – and that people of conscience around the world will listen, before it is too late.

The Lion and the Eagle The Interaction of the British and American Empires 1783–1972
Kathleen Burk An invigorating history of conflict and cooperation between America and Britain as they fought over and divided up the world
hroughout modern history, Britain and America have been both rivals and partners. In this book, Kathleen Burk examines the different kinds of power the two empires have projected, and the means they have used to do it. What the two empires have shared is a mixture of pragmatism, ruthless commercial drive, a self-righteous foreign policy and plenty of naked aggression. There has been conflict; yet their underlying alliance against common enemies has been historically unique and a defining force throughout the twentieth century. This is a global and epic history of the rise and fall of empires, from Canada to China and from Japan to the Middle East, culminating with America’s part in the destruction of the British Empire. Now that the American world order is fading, does Britain have a world role? This is authoritative, measured and compelling history. Kathleen Burk is Professor of Modern and Contemporary History at University College London and a commentator and radio panellist. She is the author of several books on Anglo-American relations, including Old World, New World, a history of Britain and America from 1497 to the present, a biography of A. J. P. Taylor, and a book on wine. She lives in South Oxfordshire.

arents obsess over their children’s playdates, curriculum, and every bump and bruise – but the toys, classrooms, playgrounds and neighbourhoods little ones engage with are just as important. These objects and spaces encode decades, even centuries of changing ideas about what makes for good child-rearing – and what does not. Now, prominent design critic Alexandra Lange reveals the surprising histories behind the human-made elements of our children’s landscape. Her investigation shows how the seemingly innocuous universe of stuff affects kids’ behaviour, values and health, often in subtle ways. And she reveals how years of decisions by toymakers, architects and urban planners have helped – and hindered – youngsters’ journeys toward independence.

Can You Tolerate This? Ashleigh Young An intellectually curious, prize-winning essay collection exploring isolation, the limitations of the body, and the challenges of personal transformation
n Can You Tolerate This? Ashleigh Young ushers us into her early years in the faraway yet familiar New Zealand. As her perspective expands, a series of historical portraits – a boy with a rare skeletal disease, a generation of Japanese shut-ins – strike unexpected personal harmonies, as an unselfconscious childhood gives way to painful shyness in adolescence. As we watch Young fall in and out of love, undertake an intense yoga practice that masks an eating disorder, and gradually find herself through her writing, a highly particular psyche comes into view: curious, tender and exacting in her observations of herself and the world around her. 09 AUGUST 2018

David D. Kirkpatrick A poignant, deeply human portrait of Egypt during the Arab Spring, told through the lives of individuals
n 2010, David D. Kirkpatrick took up his post in Cairo as the New York Times Middle East Correspondent. Egypt, like its Arab neighbours, was stagnant, an implacable autocracy. Kirkpatrick’s experience of the subsequent four years – among the jubilant throngs at Tahrir Square in 2011; beside Mohammed Morsi in the Presidential palace; trapped in Rabaa as Sisi’s army opened fire – overturned all his assumptions.

Much made him hopeful, but the coup that brought Sisi to power has ushered in a cycle of violence that threatens to snuff out any embers of change. Into the Hands of the Soldiers is a personal chronicle of these years and a kaleidoscopic portrait of a country in transition. Educated at Princeton and Yale, David D. Kirkpatrick joined the New York Times in 2000 and covered both the New York literary and the Washington beats before moving to Cairo as the Middle East Correspondent in 2011. He is now based in London.

n 1719, two upwardly mobile families rose to prominence in Paris. The Chevrots built their name on the burgeoning financial industry and the Magoulets earned renown as master embroiderers for Queen Marie-Therese and King Louis XIV.

Music as an Art Roger Scruton Bestselling author and philosopher Roger Scruton brings his immense critical faculties to bear on the subject of music, both contemporary and classical
n earlier times, our musical culture had secure foundations in the church, the concert hall and the home; in the ceremonies and celebrations of ordinary life, religion and manners. In this book, Roger Scruton argues that we no longer live in that world. Fewer people now play instruments and music is, for many, a form of largely solitary enjoyment. With his characteristic precision and elegant style, Scruton explains – via chapters on Schubert, Britten, Rameau and film – how we can develop greater judgement in music, recognising both good taste and bad, establishing musical values, as well as musical pleasures.

980s Soho saw the brilliant flowering of a daily tragi-comedy in pubs like the Coach and Horses and clubs like the Colony Room.

The bite beneath the hilarity came from lost spouses and jobs, homelessness and death.

The result is a truly fascinating account of why we have lost the ability to question what group think dictates and the capacity to think for ourselves.

Heartfelt, witty and profound, this is a modern state of the nation from a man who adopted the name Neil while growing up (it was better than ‘camel’) and went on to occupy one of the most elite positions in the British establishment.

Lamarck's Revenge How Epigenetics Is Revolutionizing Our Understanding of Evolution's Past and Present
Peter Ward Epigenetics upends natural selection and genetic mutation as the sole engines of evolution
D 17 OCTOBER 2018
arwinian evolution is based on the genetic code of an individual being changed by mutation. But some changes have taken place so radically that they cannot be explained by modern evolutionary theory. An explanation for this phenomenon is epigenetics, which can create radical physical and physiological changes in subsequent generations without genetic mutation, by the simple addition of a single small molecule.

Fewer, Better Things The Hidden Wisdom of Objects
Glenn Adamson From former director of the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, a passionate case for the well-designed object in the digital era
urator and scholar Glenn Adamson opens Fewer, Better Things by contrasting his beloved childhood teddy bear to the smartphones and digital tablets of today. He laments that people are losing touch with the material objects that have nurtured human development for thousands of years. The objects are still here, but we seem to care less and know less about them. Fewer, Better Things is an antidote to this way of thinking; exploring the history of craft, and explaining how raw materials, tools, design and technique come together to produce beauty and utility in handmade or manufactured items that we should treasure. Glenn Adamson is a senior scholar at the Yale Center for British Art and works across the fields of design, craft and contemporary art. Until March 2016 he was the director of the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, and has been head of research at the V&A. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.

The Strange Death of Europe Immigration, Identity, Islam
Douglas Murray The internationally bestselling account of a continent and a culture caught in the act of suicide, now updated with new material
ouglas Murray travelled across Europe to examine firsthand how mass immigration, the failure of multiculturalism, cultivated self-distrust and delusion have contributed to a continent in the grips of its own demise. From the shores of Lampedusa to migrant camps in Greece, from Cologne to London, he looks critically at the factors that have come together to make Europeans unable to argue for themselves and incapable of resisting their alteration as a society. His conclusion is bleak, but the predictions not irrevocable. As Murray argues, this may be our last chance to change the outcome, before it’s too late. Douglas Murray is Assistant Editor of the Spectator and writes frequently for a variety of other publications, including the Sunday Times, Standpoint and the Wall Street Journal. The Strange Death of Europe became a Sunday Times bestseller in 2017, and he has given talks across Europe and America on its subject. @DouglasKMurray ‘By far the most compelling political book of the year … Don’t hold an opinion about this book if you have not read it.’ David Sexton, Evening Standard Books of the Year, 2017

‘The world broke in two in 1922 or thereabouts,’ the American author Willa Cather once wrote. Yet for Woolf, Eliot, Forster and Lawrence, 1922 began with illness, personal problems and a frighteningly blank page. But 1922 turned out to be a year of outstanding creativity for them all. By the end of the year Woolf had started Mrs Dalloway, Forster had returned to A Passage to India, Lawrence had written Kangaroo, and Eliot had published ‘The Waste Land’. Full of surprising insights, The World Broke in Two chronicles the journeys of these four writers in a crucial year of change.

Lateral Cooking Niki Segnit The ‘method’ companion to its bestselling predecessor, The Flavour Thesaurus – and just as useful, ingeniously organised and enjoyable to read
he book is divided into 12 chapters, each covering a basic culinary category, such as ‘Bread’ or ‘Custard’. The recipes in each chapter are then arranged on a continuum, the transition from one recipe to another amounting to a tweak or two in the method or ingredients. Which is to say, one dish leads to another: once you’ve got the hang of flatbreads, for instance, then its neighbouring dishes on the continuum (crackers, soda bread) will involve the easiest and most intuitive adjustment. The result is greater creativity in the kitchen: Lateral Cooking encourages improvisation and the knowledge and confidence to cook by heart. Lateral Cooking is essentially a practical book, but like The Flavour Thesaurus it’s also a highly enjoyable read. Entertaining, opinionated and inspirational, Lateral Cooking will have you torn between donning your apron and settling back in a comfortable chair. Niki Segnit was inspired to write her bestselling first book, The Flavour Thesaurus, when she noticed how dependent she was on recipes. Her background is in marketing, specialising in food and drink, and she has worked with many famous brands of confectionery, snacks, baby foods, condiments, dairy products, hard liquors and soft drinks. She lives in central London with her family.

n the summer of 1773, 14-year old Horatio Nelson was a midshipman on Captain Constantine Phipps’ Royal Society-sponsored expedition to the Arctic, which aimed to find a northern passage between the Atlantic and Pacific. In charge of one of the ship’s boats, the young Nelson had an encounter with a polar bear that later became part of his legend.

Pacific Exploration Voyages of Discovery from Captain Cook to Charles Darwin
Nigel Rigby, Pieter van der Merwe & Glyn Williams A beautiful and absorbing account of Pacific exploration by Cook, Bligh, Flinders and more, in the 18th and 19th centuries
aptain Cook is generally acknowledged as the first great European scientific explorer.

But while Cook dominates the story of 18th-century Pacific exploration, the achievements of those who followed in his footsteps have been deprived of the greater attention they deserve. Correcting this imbalance, Pacific Exploration recounts not only Cook’s pioneering voyages but also those by explorers such as William Bligh and Matthew Flinders, amongst others. Using beautiful artworks from the period the book delves into topics of scientific discovery, engagement with indigenous peoples, the use of shipboard artists and the colonial, commercial and imperial contexts of the voyages. Dr Nigel Rigby is Curator of Exploration at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. Pieter van der Merwe MBE is General Editor of Royal Museums Greenwich. Glyn Williams is Professor Emeritus of History at Queen Mary, University of London.

Touched by God Luigi Gioia Luigi Gioia’s second spiritual book deals with the art of contemplation
uigi Gioia’s book Say it to God examining the practice of prayer was chosen as the 2018 Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent Book. In Touched by God, Gioia moves on to explore the art of contemplation. He points out from the start that contemplation is not a more advanced way of praying but a greater awareness of the presence of God.

Luigi Gioia is a lecturer in Systematic Theology and a writer. He did his doctoral studies at Oxford University, taught for many years at the Pontifical University of Sant’Anselmo in Rome and is now Research Associate of the Von Hügel Institute at the University of Cambridge.

Studies of molecular biology and biomechanical physics help us understand how hares are put together, while centuries of game estate records reveal how humans have exploited them. Ultimately, it is the moments spent in the company of wild hares that allow us to bring together myth and reality.

The Art of Animal Anatomy All life is here, dissected and depicted
ave you ever wondered what beats beneath an animal’s skin? Well, you wouldn't be the first one.
The study of comparative anatomy has led to some of the most striking images ever created. For two and a half thousand years, the animal body has been picked apart to drive arguments in natural philosophy, to reinforce dogma, to remind us of death, to horrify, educate, and enthral. This book recounts the intertwined intellectual and artistic journeys of comparative anatomy from antiquity to the present day. Rather than offering an exhaustive listing, it focuses on the distinctive artistic flavours of five great phases of anatomical endeavour. Horses opened like books, the leer of a shark’s eye, the humming loom of the brain—all life is here, dissected, and depicted. David Bainbridge is the University Clinical Veterinary Anatomist at the University of Cambridge, a reproductive biologist, and a popular science writer. He is author of: A Visitor Within: The Science of Pregnancy, Beyond the Zonules of Zinn: A Fantastic Journey Through your Brain and Curvology: The Origins and Power of Female Body Shape.
