Praise for A. M. Homes:

© Juergen Frank

Her first book since the Women’s Prize-winning May We Be Forgiven, Days of Awe is another visionary, fearless and outrageously funny work from a master storyteller.

In tales that explore our attachments to each other, Homes peers beneath the surface of what it means to be a family, and into our marriages and our secret histories. In ‘A Prize for Every Player’ a man is nominated to run for president while he and his family do their weekly shopping. And in ‘Days of Awe’ old friends rediscover themselves and one another – finding spiritual and physical comfort in ancient traditions.

How  The World Thinks A Global History of Philosophy

Julian Baggini July

The first-ever global overview of philosophy and culture, showing how societies today have been shaped by their philosophical traditions.

A

August

ll cultures are different, and have distinctive ways of thinking. In How the World Thinks, Julian Baggini travels the globe to provide a hugely wide-ranging map of human thought. He shows us how distinct branches of philosophy flowered simultaneously in China, India and Ancient Greece and how contemporary cultural attitudes in the West, East Asia and the Muslim world are rooted in the philosophical histories of these regions. He also explores the oft-neglected philosophies transmitted in the oral traditions of Africa and Australia’s first peoples.

September October

Interviewing thinkers from all around the world, he asks why, for instance, is the West seen as more individualistic than the East? Why is secularism not as powerful a force in the Islamic world as in Europe? Why has China been able to resist pressures for greater political freedom? He argues that by gaining greater knowledge of how others think, we take the first step to greater understanding of ourselves. Praise for Julian Baggini: ‘Baggini has that rare but wonderful gift of being able to be at once profound and highly entertaining’ Alexander McCall Smith

August

eenage Silvie is living in a remote Northumberland camp as an exercise in experimental archaeology. Her father is a difficult man, obsessed with recreating the discomfort, brutality and harshness of Iron Age life. Haunting Silvie’s narrative is the story of a bog girl, a sacrifice, a woman killed by those closest to her. Meanwhile, the landscape both keeps and reveals the secrets of past violence and ritual as the summer builds to its terrifying climax. Advance praise:

October

‘I love this book. Ghost  Wall requires you to put your life on hold while you finish it. It draws you into its unusual world and, with quiet power and menace, keeps you there until the very last page. Silvie’s story isn’t one you will ever forget’ Maggie O’Farrell

August

ill Ashon tells, in 36 interlinked ‘chambers’, the story of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) and how it changed the world. As unexpected and complex as the album itself, Chamber Music ranges from provocative essays to semi-comic skits, from deep scholarly analysis to satirical celebration, seeking to contextualise, reveal and honour this singularly composite work of art.

September

From the FBI’s war on drugs to the porn theatres of 42nd street, from the history of jazz to the future of politics, Chamber Music is an explosive and revelatory new way of writing about music and culture.

t is 1988 – the year before the Berlin Wall came down. Jonathan Fabricus, a journalist living in West Germany, is asked to travel to the contested lands of former East Prussia to write about the route for a car rally.

Four Soldiers Hubert Mingarelli Translated from the French by Sam Taylor July

From the author of A Meal in Winter, a resonant story of war and friendship.

1

August

919. The Russian Civil War. It is the harsh dead of winter, as four soldiers set up camp in a forest somewhere near the Romanian front line. There is a lull in the fighting, so their days are filled with precious hours of freedom, enjoying the tranquillity of a nearby pond and trying to forget their terrifying nightmares, all the while talking, smoking and waiting. Waiting for spring to come, waiting for their battalion to move on, waiting for the inevitable resumption of violence. Tightly focused and simply told, this is a story of friendship and the fragments of happiness that can illuminate the darkness of war.

In Nepal, she meets girls challenging the taboos surrounding menstruation; in the Canadian prairies, she visits a controversial plasma clinic; in Wales, she gets a tour of the UK’s only leech farm to learn about the ancient art of blood-letting and its modern revival in microsurgery; and in a London hospital, she accompanies a medical team revolutionising the way we treat trauma.
