Mr Field, a concert pianist travelling back from a performance in London, fractures his left wrist in a train crash. On a whim, he uses his compensation cheque to buy a house he has seen only in a newspaper, a replica of Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye built on a stretch of coast outside Cape Town. When he moves there with his wife Mim, the house – which Le Corbusier designed as ‘a machine for living’ – has a disturbing effect. Mim disappears without apology or explanation and Mr Field can barely summon the strength to search for her. OK, Mr Field is funny and beguiling and like nothing you’ve ever read.

Freshwater AKWAEKE EMEZI Ada was born with one foot on the other side. Prayed into existence by those who believe they are her parents, Saul and Saachi struggle to deal with the volatile and contradictory spirits peopling their troubled girl.

Untitled SALLY ROONEY

When Ada comes of age and heads to college, the group of selves within her grows in power and agency. An assault leads to a crystallisation of her alternate selves: Asụghara and Saint Vincent. As Ada fades into the background of her own mind and these selves – now protective, now hedonistic – seize control of Ada, her life spirals in a dark and dangerous direction.

Connell and Marianne grow up in the same small town in rural Ireland. Their similarities end there; they are from very different worlds. But they also both earn places at university – the prestigious Trinity College Dublin – and a connection that has grown between them despite the social tangle of school that lasts long into the following years. Sally Rooney’s second novel is profoundly political, just as it is also a novel about love. It is wry and seductive; perceptive and bold.

Women Talking MIRIAM TOEWS Between 2005 and 2009, in a remote religious Mennonite colony, over one hundred girls and women were knocked unconscious and raped repeatedly by what many thought were ghosts or demons. Their accounts were dismissed as ‘wild female imagination.’ Women Talking is an imagined response to these real events. Eight illiterate women with no knowledge of the world outside their community meet secretly in a hayloft to decide how to protect themselves and their daughters from future harm.

Kudos RACHEL CUSK

Meet AK, an Indian ‘immigrant’ studying in New York where he embarks on a sequence of relationships with literature, radical politics and women. AK’s education is both an intellectual and emotional journey, and we share in his learning and humanity in an unusually sympathetic way. Ironic, provocative and explosively stylish, Amitava Kumar’s novel re-invents the bildungsroman and post colonial narrative for a new generation – and introduces an unforgettable voice.

A woman on a plane listens to the stranger in the seat next to hers telling her the story of his life: his work, his marriage, and the harrowing night he has just spent burying the family dog. That woman is Faye, who is now on her way to Europe to promote the book she has just published. Once she reaches her destination, the conversations she has with the people she meets – about art, about family, about politics, about love, about sorrow and joy, about justice and injustice – are the most far-reaching questions human beings ask. These conversations, the last of them with her son, rise dramatically and majestically to a beautiful conclusion.

It is sixteen years since her daughter was taken, snatched from her third birthday party, the last time she saw the three people she loves most dearly: her mother, her husband, her child.

The Secret Life of Cows ROSAMUND YOUNG The Sunday Times Top Ten bestseller and a Guardian Book of the Year – now in a gorgeous paperback edition. Cows are as varied as people. They can be highly intelligent or slow to understand, vain, considerate, proud, shy or inventive. Although much of a cow’s day is spent eating, they always find time for activities such as babysitting, playing hide and seek, blackberry picking, or fighting a tree. This is an affectionate record of a hitherto secret world.

The Life of Walter Gropius FIONA MacCARTHY Bauhaus was more than an art school – it was the birth of a new way of thinking. In this captivating biography of its charismatic founder, Fiona MacCarthy argues that Walter Gropius’s visionary ideas still influence the way we live today.

B PB | £7.99 05/07/2018 | 9780571345793

MacCarthy traces the story of this ground-breaking architect: his shattering experiences in World War I, his turbulent relationship with Alma Mahler, his concept of the Bauhaus as a gathering of talents that included Kandinsky, Klee and Moholy-Nagy, and his agonised decision to leave Nazi Germany in 1933 for a new life first in England, then in America. This modern reassessment of Gropius’s life is biography at its finest and most vivid. The Bauhaus centenary will be celebrated in 2019. ROYAL HB | £25.00 04/10/2018 | 9780571295135

Music for Life FIONA MADDOCKS

The Silent Musician MARK WIGGLESWORTH

100 Poems SEAMUS HEANEY

How does music reflect the key moments in our lives? How do we choose works that inspire, delight, comfort or console? Fiona Maddocks, the classical music critic of the Observer, selects 100 classical works from across nine centuries, arguing passionately and persuasively for their inclusion, putting each work in its cultural and musical context, discussing omissions, suggesting alternatives and always putting the music first.

The Silent Musician is not intended to be an instruction manual for conductors, nor is it a history of conducting. It is for all who wonder what conductors actually do, and why they matter. Exploring the relationships with the musicians and the music, and the public and personal responsibilities they face, leading conductor Mark Wigglesworth writes with engaging honesty about the features of his art: precision, charisma, intuition, diplomacy and passion.

Seamus Heaney had the idea to form a personal selection from across the entire arc of his poetry, small yet comprehensive enough to serve as an introduction for all comers. He never managed to do this in his lifetime, and no edition exists which has such a broad range, drawing from first collection to last. But now, at last, the project has been returned to, resulting in an intimate gathering of poems chosen and introduced by the Heaney family. 100 Poems is a singular, accessible collection for new and younger readers that has the opportunity to reach far and wide, now and for years to come.

S Y LV I A PL AT H’s renown as one of the twentieth century’s most influential poets is beyond dispute, but she was also one of its most captivating correspondents. This remarkable, collected edition of Plath’s letters is a work of immense scholarship and care, presenting a comprehensive and historically accurate text of the known and extant letters that she wrote to over one hundred and twenty correspondents. Volume II includes a selection of later correspondence that witnesses Plath and Hughes becoming major, influential contemporary writers, as it happened. Throughout, Plath’s voice is completely, uniquely her own.

The Chaos of Now ERIN LANGE When Jordan Bishop set himself on fire at Haver High school as a result of internet bullying, it triggered a nationwide crackdown. New laws empower teachers to become cyber snoops in case of abuse on social media. For teen hacker, Eli Bennett, the laws put fundamental freedoms at risk. And he’s not alone in thinking this. Approached by two mysterious hackers, Eli is recruited into a group that wants justice for Jordan the way Jordan would’ve wanted it.  But what starts as a bit of fun to rile the cyber snoops soon spirals out of control. Revenge on Jordan’s bullies could be classed as bullying itself . . . At best, Eli’s school career is in jeopardy, at worst, once more lives are at risk. B PB | £6.99 04/10/2018 | 9780571317479

Secrets of a Sun King EMMA CARROLL

WORLD

It’s November, 1922. In a valley in Egypt the tomb of a long dead pharaoh is about to be discovered. The world watches and waits for news with baited breath. Thirteen-year-old Lilian Kaye, who lives in a flat above a shop in London, is eagerly following the story. One morning the news takes a sinister turn: a man – a famous Egyptologist – disappears. All that remains of him are his feet. Then Lil’s grandfather is taken suddenly ill, and when a mysterious package turns up for him from the Egyptologist, Lil starts to believe there is truth to the rumours of a pharaoh’s curse . . .

The Land of Neverendings KATE SAUNDERS

T. S. Eliot’s best-selling collection of practical cat poems has been one of the most successful poetry collections in the world.

WORLD

For the first time in company history a companion volume will be published. Originally conceived by Eliot himself, Old Toffer’s Book of Consequential Dog poems are as witty, varied and exquisitely compiled as Eliot’s cats.

When Emily’s sister Holly dies, she is surprised to find that she misses her toy bear, Bluey, almost as much as Holly. The only person who seems to understand Emily’s grief is Ruth, her next-door neighbour – and then very strange things start to happen. Emily dreams of talking toys visiting her bedroom, telling her they have a message from Bluey. A terrible black toad, who stinks of sadness, begins to stalk Ruth’s house. And when a parade of penguins marches through the kitchen, Emily has to wonder whether this is all a dream after all. But why are the toys here, and what could Bluey possibly be trying to tell her?
