The hotly-anticipated new novel from the legendary Edna O’Brien imagines the lives of the Boko Haram girls with shattering power. Set deep in the heart of Nigeria, this is a brutal story of incarceration, horror, and hunger; a knife-edged escape into the terrors of the forest; and a descent into the labyrinthine bureaucracy and hostility awaiting a victim who returns home with a child blighted by enemy blood.

Kavanagh begins his life patrolling the Wall. If he’s lucky, if nothing goes wrong, he only has two years of this, 729 more nights. The best thing that can happen is that he survives and gets off the Wall and never has to spend another day of his life anywhere near it. He will soon find out what Defenders do and who the Others are. Along with the rest of his squad, he will endure cold and fear day after day, night after night. But somewhere, in the dark cave of his mind, he thinks: wouldn’t it be interesting if something did happen, if they came, if you had to fight for your life?

Girl is an unforgettable story of one victim’s astonishing survival, and her quest to keep love alive in a barbaric world.

MIRIAM TOEWS Women Talking



A profound, unsettling novel set in a remote religious Mennonite colony.

Out of Darkness, Shining Light PETINA GAPPAH

How should we live? How should we love? How should we treat one another?

This second novel from Petina Gappah follows the epic journey of Dr Livingstone’s corpse through nineteenth-century Africa. Narrated by Halima – Livingstone’s chef – and three of his servants and disciples – the novel tells a pre-colonial story that is largely idealistic and Christian from a post-colonial perspective.

Summer of My Amazing Luck Miriam Toews’s heartbreaking and funny debut novel.

It is about slavery, loyalty, organised religion, and superstitious belief; women in a world dominated by men and their worldview; and the moment before the Europeans arrived in Africa and brutally carved up the continent.

A brilliantly funny book about the intricacies of friendship, grief and poverty. 04/07/2019 | B PB | £7.99 | 9780571345878

The Town SHAUN PRESCOTT In an unnamed, dead-end town in the heart of the Australian outback, a young writer arrives to research local settlements that are slowly vanishing into oblivion. But he didn’t expect these ghost towns to literally disappear before his eyes. When an epidemic of mysterious holes begins to threaten the town’s existence, he is plunged into an abyss of weirdness from which he may never recover. B PB | £7.99 01/08/2019 | 9780571345625


Sleepless Nights ELIZABETH HARDWICK A lost American classic, Sleepless Nights is a kaleidoscopic scrapbook of one woman’s memories, reissued with a new introduction by Eimear McBride. First published in 1979, Sleepless Nights is a collage of fiction and memoir, letters and essays, portraits and dreams. It is more than the story of a life: it is Elizabeth Hardwick’s experience of womanhood in the twentieth century. Above all, here is prose blurring into poetry, language to lose – and perhaps to find – yourself in. B PB | £8.99 04/07/2019 | 9780571346998

Seduction and Betrayal ELIZABETH HARDWICK First published in 1974, Elizabeth Hardwick’s iconic essay collection is a radical portrait of literary women, reissued with a new introduction by Deborah Levy. Sidelined. Shortchanged. Killed off. Hardwick considers women in literature. She imagines the lives of the Brontës, Woolf, Eliot, and Plath; the fate of wives such as Dorothy Wordsworth, Zelda Fitzgerald, and Jane Carlyle; and the tales of fictional heroines from Richardson’s Clarissa to Ibsen’s Nora. Both timely and timeless, these provocative essays are nothing less than a reckoning, dissecting relations between women and writing, work and life. B PB | £8.99 04/07/2019 | 9780571347001

Her fate changes the day she begins nannying for a rich and beautiful Upper East Side mother. Both women are just 26 – but unlike Ella, Lonnie has a doting husband and son, artistic talent, and old family money. Ella is mesmerised by Lonnie’s girlish affection and disregard for the normal boundaries of friendship and marriage. But resentment grows alongside dizzying attraction.

Before She Knew Him PETER SWANSON When Hen spots the fencing trophy in her new neighbour’s study, she knows Matthew must be hiding a dark secret. Could this seemingly charming, mild-mannered history teacher really be the person Hen – who’s been battling her own problems with mania and depression – thinks he is? Even if she is right, who would believe her? As Hen’s suspicions mount, she and Matthew are drawn closer together. But who, if anyone, is in danger?

Crackling with sensuality and heart-quickening suspense, Madeline Stevens’ searing debut novel explores themes of class, aspiration, female friendship, sexuality, and obsession.

The Paris Diversion CHRIS PAVONE

This is Not Propaganda PETER POMERANTSEV


Perhaps the most important global trend of the last few years has been the rise of information warfare. In the digital age, military engagement matters less than how it is broadcast. The result is a constant deluge of lies, absurdity and fear-mongering.


Peter Pomerantsev learns about the tactics of protesters in Serbia, narco-warlords in Mexico, Fox News hosts in America, and the KGB officer who forced his own family into exile. Taking in these surreal yet important lessons, ultimately Pomerantsev looks to the future, asking how we might navigate this new reality and what a better form of democracy might look like.

Walls DAVID FRYE For thousands of years, humans have built walls and assaulted them, admired walls and reviled them. Great Walls have appeared on nearly every continent, and they have accompanied the rise of cities, nations, and empires. In Walls, David Frye uncovers a story that is more than just bricks and stone: he reveals the link between what we build and how we live, who we are and how we came to be. It is nothing less than the story of civilization.

When he is murdered at the couple’s beach house, Hannah has no choice but to welcome her teenaged stepson’s biological mother – her estranged sister, Nicole – back into her life. When the police begin to treat Ian as a suspect, the two sisters are forced to confront the truth behind family secrets they both tried to leave in the past. B PB | £7.99 01/08/2019 | 9780571345557

Who Am I, Again? LENNY HENRY

After the publication of Outline, Transit and Kudos – in which Rachel Cusk redrew the boundaries of fiction – this writer of uncommon brilliance returns with a selection of nonfiction that offers new insights on the themes at the heart of her life’s work. Encompassing memoir and cultural and literary criticism, with pieces on gender, politics and writers such as D. H. Lawrence, Olivia Manning and Natalia Ginzburg, this collection is essential reading for our age. Coventry grants its readers a rare opportunity to see a mind at work that will influence literature for time to come.

Sir Lenny Henry is one of the country’s most-loved comedians with a career spanning over 40 years. With honesty, tenderness and a glorious sense of humour, Lenny Henry writes about his early life for the first time. The book is not an autobiography, but the biography of a man who, at each stage of a glittering career, asked himself: Am I good enough? Is this what they want? Who am I again? This book answers those questions. ROYAL TPB | £12.99 03/10/2019 | 9780571342600

Mr Lear JENNY UGLOW The acclaimed historian’s fascinating and beautifully illustrated biography of Edward Lear, shortlisted for Waterstone’s Book of the Year. Lear was a man of great simplicity and charm, yet his humour masked epilepsy, depression and loneliness. Jenny Uglow’s biography, full of the colour of the age, brings us his swooping moods, passionate friendships and restless travels. Above all it shows how this uniquely gifted man lived all his life on the boundaries of rules and structures, disciplines and desires – an exile of the heart.

Dishonesty is the Second-Best Policy DAVID MITCHELL

B PB | £10.99 17/10/2019 | 9780571269556


Exceptionally funny and brilliant journalism from the much-loved comedian. When we published the Sunday Times bestseller Thinking About It Only Makes It Worse back in 2014, we didn’t think that things could get any worse. Fake news, fatbergs, and the continuing presence of Farage proved us wrong. The only possible way to cheer up in 2019 is to dive into David Mitchell’s terrifically clever and witty analysis of the sh*tshow of recent years. Here he takes on the utter crap rained down on us from corporate PRs, governments in the thrall of lobbyists, customers being preyed upon by algorithm-wielding corporations and evil interest groups tricking electors. No other writer is a match for the dumbfounding times that we live in.


I Am Dynamite! SUE PRIDEAUX Friedrich Nietzsche’s work blasted the foundation of Western thinking. The death of God, the Übermensch and the slave morality permeate our culture, high and low, and yet he is one of history’s most misunderstood philosophers. In this myth-shattering book, Sue Prideaux brings readers into the world of a brilliant, eccentric and deeply troubled man, illuminating the events and people that shaped his life and work. © Mark Harrison

A devastating portrait of America’s opioid painkiller epidemic – the deadliest drug crisis in US history.

In 2016, a whistle-blower known only as ‘John’ started to leak a treasure trove of top-secret files, revealing the clandestine dealings of clubs, players and agents at the highest levels of international football. From the eye-popping details of player transfers, to loopholes and opaque tax structures that ensure maximum earnings, this is a tale of rapacious greed and dodgy deals. It is also the gripping story of a fan who wanted to free football from corruption, but finds himself on the run.

One hundred and fifty Americans are killed each day by the opioid epidemic, which has been described as ‘one of the greatest mistakes of modern medicine’. But, as Chris McGreal reveals in this powerful study, it was an avoidable tragedy, driven by bad science, corporate greed and a corrupted medical system which pushed the mass-prescribing of ‘heroin in a pill’.

The best of Faber’s collected lyrics

A conductor is one of classical music’s most recognisable but misunderstood figures, attracting so many questions: ‘Surely orchestras can play perfectly well without you?’ ‘Are the musicians even watching you?’

The Silent Musician is not a manual for conductors, nor a history of conducting. It is for all who wonder what conductors actually do, and why they matter. B PB | £9.99 05/09/2019 | 9780571337910

Ice princess Stella Snowflake and her father Felix are in trouble: President Fogg has expelled them from the Polar Bear Explorers’ Club, and banned them from going on any further expeditions.

Pet is here to hunt a monster. Are you brave enough to look? There are no more monsters, or so the children in the city of Lucille are taught. With doting parents and a best friend named Redemption, Jam has grown up with this lesson all her life. But when she meets Pet, a creature made of horns and colours and claws, who emerges from one of her mother’s paintings and a drop of Jam’s blood, she must reconsider what she’s been told. Jam must fight not only to protect her best friend, but also to uncover the truth, and the answer to the question – How do you save the world from monsters if no one will admit they exist?

Stella’s not going to be put off by rules and regulations though. She knows her friend Shay is in danger of turning into a witch wolf himself, since receiving a deadly bite on their last adventure. It’s vital that Stella and her friends set out to find the spellbook that could save his life, even if it means travelling over the cursed Black Ice Bridge.

My Hair HANNAH LEE My birthday’s coming up so soon, I’ll need new clothes to wear.


But most of all, I need to know, How shall I style my hair? Will it be dreads or a twist out? Braids or a high-top fade? Joyous and vibrant, this captures perfectly the excitement of getting ready for a celebration, as well as showcasing a dazzling array of intricate hairstyles.

Stunning illustrations by Chris Mould make this one of the most exciting editions of The Iron Man. Mankind must put a stop to the dreadful destruction by the Iron Man and set a trap for him, but he cannot be kept down. Then, when a terrible monster from outer space threatens to lay waste to the planet, it is the Iron Man who finds a way to save the world.



Includes the story of Jet the Alsatian who became a hero of the Blitz; Gallipoli Murphy the donkey, who served as an ambulance; Simon the cat, who saved his crew, and many, many more.
