The Wall JOHN LANCHESTER

EUR

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?

There’s a village outside London. It’s no different from many other villages in England: one pub, one church, red-brick cottages, council cottages and a few bigger houses dotted about. Voices rise up, as they might do anywhere, speaking of loving and needing and working and dying and walking the dogs. This village belongs to the people who live in it and to the people who lived in it hundreds of years ago. It belongs to England’s mysterious past and its confounding present. But it also belongs to Dead Papa Toothwort, a figure schoolchildren used to draw green and leafy, choked by tendrils growing out of his mouth.

Dead Papa Toothwort is awake. He is listening to this twenty-firstcentury village, to his English symphony. He is listening, intently, for a mischievous, enchanting boy whose parents have recently made the village their home. Lanny. B HB | £10.00 07/03/2019 | 9780571340286

A Good Enough Mother BEV THOMAS

Death Is Hard Work KHALED KHALIFA

Dr Ruth Hartland rises to difficult tasks. She is the director of a highly respected trauma therapy unit. She is confident, capable and excellent at her job. Today she is preoccupied by her son Tom’s disappearance.

As he lies dying in a hospital in Damascus, Abdel Latif’s final wish is to be buried in his ancestral village in the Aleppo region of Syria.

So when a new patient arrives at the unit – a young man who looks shockingly like Tom – she is floored.

Bolbol, the old man’s youngest son, persuades his estranged brother and their sister to take their father’s body to Anabiya. With the landscape of the siblings’ childhood now a labyrinth of competing armies, their mission quickly escalates into an epic and life-threatening quest. Syria is no longer any place for heroes, and the trials that confront the family along their journey – they are captured, interrogated, imprisoned and bombed – will prove to have enormous consequences for them all.

As a therapist, Ruth knows exactly what she should do in the best interests of her client, but as a mother she makes a very different choice – a decision that will have profound consequences.  ROYAL TPB | £10.00 04/04/2019 | 9780571348381

A father steps out into the night to search for his son. As the hours turn into days, this man will learn many things. He will learn about being a father to twin boys who are in no way alike. He will learn how dangerous hopes and dreams can be. He will learn truths about Trinidad, about his family, and himself. He will question received wisdom and question his judgement. He will learn about sacrifice and the nature of love – and he will be forced to act. ROYAL TPB | £10.99 17/01/2019 | 9780571339815

Little Faith NICKOLAS BUTLER Lyle Hovde is at the onset of his golden years, living a mostly content life in rural Wisconsin with his wife, daughter, Shiloh, and grandson, Isaac. After a troubled adolescence and subsequent estrangement from her parents, Shiloh has finally come home. But, while away, she became deeply involved with an extremist church, and the devout pastor courting her is convinced Isaac has the spiritual ability to heal the sick. Reckoning with his own faith – or lack thereof – Lyle soon finds himself torn between his unease about the church and the growing threat it poses to keeping his daughter and grandson in his life.  DEMY TPB | £12.99 07/03/2019 | 9780571351107

PAPERBACKS Adèle LEÏLA SLIMANI

Kudos RACHEL CUSK

Adèle appears to have the perfect life. She is a successful journalist in Paris who lives in a chic apartment with her surgeon husband and their young son. But beneath the veneer of ‘having it all’, she is bored – and consumed by an insatiable need for sex, whatever the cost. Struggling to contain the twin forces of compulsion and desire, she begins to orchestrate her life around her one-night stands and extramarital affairs, arriving late to work and lying to her husband about where she’s been, until she becomes ensnared in a trap of her own making.

On a plane to Europe, Faye listens to the stranger next to her telling her the story of his life. And once she arrives, the conversations she has with the people she meets – about art, family, politics, love, sorrow and joy, justice and injustice – raise the most far-reaching questions human beings ask. Kudos completes Rachel Cusk’s trilogy – alongside the novels Outline and Transit – with overwhelming power.

Enigma Variations ANDRÉ ACIMAN

Patient X DAVID PEACE

From a youthful infatuation with a cabinetmaker in a small Italian fishing village, to a passionate yet sporadic affair with a woman in New York, to an obsession with a man he meets at a tennis court, Enigma Variations charts one man’s path through the great loves of his life.

Ryūosuke Akutagawa was one of Japan’s great writers who lived through the country’s turbulent Taishō period of 1912 to 1926, only to take his own life at the age of thirty-five in 1927. Inspired by Akutagawa’s stories, essays and letters, David Peace has fashioned the most extraordinary novel of tales – an intense, passionate, haunting paean to one writer.

With language at once lyrical, bare-knuckled and unabashedly candid, André Aciman, author of Call Me By Your Name, casts a shimmering light over each facet of desire to probe how we ache, want and waver. B PB | £7.99 21/02/2019 | 9780571349692

The Rise of the Ultra Runners ADHARANAND FINN

Owl Sense MIRIAM DARLINGTON

Mrs Moreau’s Warbler STEPHEN MOSS

The Happy Brain DEAN BURNETT

On ‘owl walks’ with her teenage son, Benji, Miriam Darlington begins a quest to identify every European species of this elusive bird. From Britain she travels to Spain, France, Serbia and Finland, and to the frosted borders of the Arctic. Along the way, however, Benji succumbs to a mysterious and disabling illness, and Miriam’s endeavour soon becomes entangled with the search for his cure.

Swallow and starling, puffin and peregrine, blue tit and blackcap. We use these names so often that few of us ever pause to wonder about their origins. What do they mean? Where did they come from? And who created them? Stephen Moss shows how these names reveal as much about ourselves and our relationship with the natural world as about the creatures they describe.

In The Happy Brain, neuroscientist Dean Burnett delves deep into the inner workings of our minds to explore some fundamental questions about happiness. What does it actually mean to be happy? Where does it come from? And is there a secret to making happiness last forever? Burnett unravels our complex internal lives to reveal the often-surprising truth behind what make us tick.

In The Rise of the Ultra Runners, award-winning author Adharanand Finn travels to the heart of the sport to investigate the reasons behind its rise, and to discover what it takes to be an ultra runner. Through encounters with the extreme and colourful characters of the ultramarathon world, and his own experiences of training for the 106-mile UltraTrail du Mont-Blanc, Finn offers a fascinating account of people testing the boundaries of human endeavour.

To Throw Away Unopened VIV ALBERTINE

British Museum DALJIT NAGRA

WORLD

WORLD

British Museum marks a significant departure of style to something quieter, more contemplative and inquisitive, at times valedictory. Nagra’s political edge has been honed in a book that asks profound questions of our ethics and responsibilities at a time of great challenge to our sense of national identity.

Viv Albertine has always been obsessed with the truth: the truth about family, power and her identity as a rebel and outsider. But at what cost? With brutal honesty she relentlessly exposes human dysfunctionality: the impossibility of intimacy, and the damage wrought upon us by secrets and revelations, siblings and parents.

100 Poems SEAMUS HEANEY

And Then It Fell Apart MOBY

100 Poems is a selection of poems from across the entire arc of Seamus Heaney’s writing life, small yet comprehensive enough to welcome all comers. Chosen and introduced by the Heaney family, readers will enjoy the most loved and celebrated poems, as well as discovering new favourites. This singular anthology reaches out far and wide, now and for years to come.

The second volume of Moby’s extraordinary life story. In summer 1999, Moby released the album that defined the millennium: PLAY. Like generation-defining albums before it, PLAY was ubiquitous, and catapulted Moby to superstardom. Suddenly he was hanging out with David Bowie and Lou Reed, Christina Ricci and Madonna, taking ecstasy for breakfast (most days), drinking litres of vodka (every day), and sleeping with supermodels (infrequently). It was a diet that couldn’t last. And then it fell apart.

In this clever flipbook, both a hedgehog and a tortoise are looking for a hug. They ask all the other animals they come across but for some reason no one will hug them. Until a wise owl explains: Hedgehog is too spiky; Tortoise is too bony. And that’s when they find each other! A hug – at last!  PB | £6.99 03/01/2019 | 9780571340019

This stunning follow-up to one of 2016’s most talked about books promises more magic, more passion, more seduction, more power . . . and more danger.

Clara’s mean uncle disappears as his fortunes fail, leaving her all alone in his giant manor with nothing but a wedge of ‘guilty money’. Luckily, streetwise Peter has been sent to stay. The children are far from unhappy with their newfound freedom, until an interfering grown-up turns up with the unwelcome news that the house is to be sold.
