APRIL 2018 DJ &A

DENNISJONES.COM.AU The Distributor for Independent Australian Publishers


April 2018 How I worked on Australia Day but did not take paid advertising to announce. I also worked part of the Saturday and Sunday. In protest? No - I have my own view on the plethora of public holidays and state rights / but I choose to work in a business that seems to be active 24/7. Much like the people reading this page. My privileged time is my annual leave. We were going to run the cover of this new title offering under the banner of "high fives", for a handful of books where we have sold 5000 copies in the last 12 months - not strong enough a message for the cover, but still worthwhile noting them. Without these publicly demanded backlist titles we would struggle, as committing to the constant build for new titles is in fact very expensive and with the go to backlist we all then are satisfied as the risk is diminished. So those top titles are (in no particular order) Food as Medicine $55.00, The Grade Cricketer (across its print and digital forms), Hey Warrior (PB + HB), Weed Foragers Handbook $21.95 and Secret Girls' Business Books (Secret Girls and Secret Boys). Naked for Satan - I had the opportunity to sit with David Tenenbaum (Publisher Melbourne Books) to have every page of the uncorrected proofs shown to me. Highly compelling session as I left believing we have the grit to make this a global book saleable in Greenwich Village, or Fremantle, or Oslo. I am very hopeful that it will track toward a shortlisting for the Gourmand Awards list for next year. And the reminder that these sort of books take a very heavy investment by the publisher for an industry to enjoy. This week we publicly announced our foray into "International" with www.dennisjonesinternational.com.au. We have launched based on a couple of premises. First, in our own business we do not wish to deviate from being very Australian in the content we house physically as well as support onto the formats of eBook and Print on Demand. We will never run out of demand for the services we offer to bring books to market. I also think that with the growth of indie publishing globally the old method of shipping bulk stock to a local shed to stagnate or sell is flawed as well. So many books and models change. You only need to think of how Rebel Girls 2 has come to market. It also presents somewhat of the old paradigm shift as booksellers will need to be more reflective of firm sale buying, mark ups and margin as well as the nuances of taxation through customs charges, GST, etc.

Words from the Wise Last week we celebrated selling our 150,000th eBook. Very exciting for a business that does work for the local independent publishers and authors. Our bestselling eBooks are currently The Missing Beaumont Children, Faerie Apocalypse and the three Pufferfish titles published by Fullers from Hobart, and the biggest selling author for last month was Arthur Upfield with the Bony series. And then there are the 30 or 40 work in progress titles of books being converted back to files to enable republishing as new editions across any of the formats of offset, eBook, Print on Demand. We probably have an output of over 50 - 70 books per year where it is a virtual publishing task undertaken. The business. Our January was marginally up in sales (5%) against last year, however it was the domination of many books rather than being led by any sort of best seller. A five week month however for wages and costs which will take the pleasure out of a sales growth. Again the continued growth of demand via online suppliers is both beneficial as well as a concern as it hides a soft book trade performance with our books. The shift to StarTrack for the majority of deliveries seems to have gone without a hitch to date. We have switched to get the books to you as quickly as we can - if it results in greater sell through and greater competitiveness with what the ugly consumer demands then we will have succeeded. Time will tell. The business. We still battle the landlords, the crumby Body Corporate, the on costs of utility supply for the premises and a desire to put the business back under one roof. Good Reading and Good customer relations. Best wishes DJ PS Can't sit on the fence on the 26th of January. Of course it should be renamed and shifted to coincide without becoming a Republic and the true recognition that we all came from faraway lands regardless of your heritage. One Nation, One People, united by the challenges of cohabitation of One Earth; where most of the government acts we live under were crafted in a time long gone. Time for change. DJ

AVAILABLE NOW In his second book Actually, It IS All About Me (Reboot Your Thinking was published in 2016), Nick Bowditch discusses  the importance  of putting yourself first in both mind and body. Nick talks openly and honestly about his mental health issues and how they affect where he puts himself on the ladder of needs  (usually near or at the bottom when he is struggling and closer to the top when he is going well). "When I am low, I can quickly spiral into a self‐pity cycle that usually ends up in me lashing out, or acting out, in order to make myself  feel better or make someone else feel worse. Just as easily, though, when I am low I can slip into a desire to act submissively and  relegate myself down the rungs of importance in my own thinking. I can assure myself that even if I am no good, worthless or  unlovable at the moment (all mostly lies that I tell myself when my mental health isn't as good as it could be), I can still make sure  everyone else is flying. I can devote my time to making sure everyone else is getting everything they need, while parking my own needs  and wants almost entirely. "But when I am going well, and my mental health is closer to the best it can be, I can see that I do deserve some  attention and love and respect ‐ and not the least some self‐love. I can see that I am worthy, lovable and important.  And I can start to  place my needs back up near the forefront of my thinking, instead of submitting and concentrating on everyone else's."  Actually, It IS All About Me looks at how to completely change our thinking so that our own needs are the most  Author Information Nick is the only person in the Asia–Pacific region to have worked at both Facebook and Twitter, and the only person in the world to  have worked in marketing at both brands.  He is a successful (and unsuccessful) entrepreneur, TEDx speaker and thought‐leader in  social media. He also works extensively in the start‐up ecosystem in Australia and internationally as both an advisor and investor, and  he is a sought‐after keynote speaker.  He travels nationally and internationally speaking at conferences and inspiring others to create  and build businesses that use authentic storytelling, show empathy and a focus on social contribution, and have kindness at their core.   He is also the father of four beautiful children and lives near Sydney, Australia.

Being outside adds to everyone's quality of life but too often this simple joy of living is beyond the reach of older  people and people with dementia.  It's time to rethink the buildings we use for providing care, and even our own homes, to ensure there is a readily  accessible 'room outside'. The benefits are undeniable‐improved health, greater independence and often emotional  and spiritual comfort.  The room outside is easy to read, informative and well‐researched making it the perfect resource for those seeking to  build, design or manage better outdoor spaces, or those wanting to access and advocate for them.  Aged care homes and hospitals have many rooms, but do they have a 'room outside?' They should and they can‐and  everything needed to make this happen can be found in these pages. Landscape architect Annie Pollock has written this timely book, having devoted more than 40 years of her life to  designing dementia‐inclusive outdoor living. She is joined by Associate Professor Colm Cunningham who contributes  his extensive expertise on understanding dementia, ageing and evidence‐based care approaches.

Benji's autobiography of childhood neglect and bullying is told simply with compassion and poignancy. At a time when most school leavers are embarking on a future of freedom and excitement, the author chose to  protect the only family he felt he had and became the sole guardian of his younger brother. With no home and no  support from his socially inept father and his drug addict sister, he relates the years of emotional deprivation and  abandoned dreams with courage and honesty. A trip to the Philippines to meet his mother's family eventually assists  him in laying his personal demons to rest. Tough Ain't Enough will inspire all. Benji's story assures us that it is possible to overcome all sorts of problems, the  importance of working through your issues and admitting human frailty. No one is tough enough.

Author Information Benji is the second child of Swedish and Filipino migrants. His dad was a miner and a social misfit; he was fired from every single job he ever had. His mum was a chef and became a single mother when Benji was still very young. Benji spent a lot of his childhood and adolescence moving around the country and watching his family fall apart around him. Training with the navy and tracking down his long lost family in the Philippines contributed to helping him understand who he is, giving him a sense of belonging. This is his first novel.

Just before dawn, on the first day of summer 1948, the body of an unidentified man is found slumped against a seawall on  quiet Somerton beach near Adelaide. he has been poisoned, and there is speculation that he was a Soviet agent sent to spy  on a top‐secret site being set up at Woomera in the remote South Australian desert.  In a callous act that abruptly ends more than 50,000 years of relative isolation, the Aboriginal custodians of the Western  Desert are forcibly removed from their homelands to enable Western civilisation to develop weapons of mass destruction.  Will Oakley's search for truth would be shaped by the conjuncture of these vastly different worlds. Exiled by politics  and conflict, he would wander the planet, before waking to a startling revelation ‐ a dangerous secret within sight at  the  start of his journey. Author Information John Ogden is the creator and sole director of Cyclops Press, an independent publishing house specializing in small edition art books that explore social issues in order to create awareness and discussion. Cyclops Press commenced business in 1999 with Australienation, a look at reconciliation in Australia through Ogden’s black and white photographs. In 2009, Ogden published Portraits from a Land Without People - the culmination of many years of research to create what is now regarded as the most comprehensive survey of the pictorial history of Aboriginal Australia yet produced. Phillip Adams described Portraits from a Land Without People as “a magnificent book as important a book as anything that’s been published in Australia for years.” Saltwater People of the Broken Bays - A history of Sydney's Northern Beaches, and the companion book Saltwater People of the Fatal Shore, looking at the history of Sydney’s coast from South Head to Royal National Park, were awarded the 2013 biennial Frank Broeze Maritime History prize by the Australian National Maritime Museum. Slightly Dangerous is a personal journal on the photography of John Ogden, published to accompany a retrospective exhibition held in 2012. This book was the inspiration for The Shibboleth Trilogy.

A Sense of Place Publishing

The ordinary and the extraordinary mix in this excruciatingly intimate, and at times triumphant and funny book which tells a profoundly moving story, custom built for our times. Anne M Reid had the perfect life with her perfect partner. She and Paul had been together for 12 years, married with three beautiful children, when one night, without warning, Paul admits to a life-long feeling of disconnection with his body, only recently understanding why: as a young child, he had wanted to be a girl. The book explores the anguish Anne feels as Paul begins transitioning to Paula, and all the confusion, bewilderment and social stigma surrounding a gender transition. Paula not only crossed the gender divide, but now had different likes and dislikes, and a different take on the world. The husband Anne knew disappeared from the world. How does she cope? How does she manage what is now a same sex relationship? How do the children adapt to two mothers? At times this is an incredibly emotional book. Anne lets fly with feelings of anger, betrayal, sadness, despair and loneliness. As Paula expressed disdain for any photographs or reminders of her earlier times as a male, Anne begins to wonder if her marriage had been some elaborate lie. Even happy times in the past are now tinged with sadness. Yet Anne also manages compassion and understanding. Despite all the fallout, Anne and Paula remain together. And there’s humour, for example, when the kids are deciding what to call the new ‘Paula’. This book is written from the unique perspective of a partner of a transitioning person. It’s a matter-of-fact, day-to-day account of what really goes on in a transitioning household. And it’s told by an author who is comfortable with describing her deepest emotions, fears and anxiety. You befriend the author at an intimate,emotional level. Paula has penned some chapters to explain her desperate need to transition, and the process that took place from her perspective. For Anne, writing She Said, She Said was a cathartic exercise. It helped her keep sane in the face of massive change she never anticipated. The book includes a section on the phenomenon of gender dysphoria and transitioning which Anne researched to enhance her own understanding. She Said, She Said offers unique insights not only to those who find themselves wearing Anne’s shoes, but to anyone curious about gender dysphoria and its impact on a family.

Cheese making is a wonderful adventure and very rewarding. Much like people who wish to make their own bread,  grow their own vegetables or make their own wines and beers, many cheese makers know that you cannot replace  the quality of handmade cheeses with the mass produced supermarket cheeses available today. Plus, you can make  various boutique cheeses at home which aren't readily available at the store. Additionally, the importance of eating foods without chemical additives, artificial colourings and preservatives is  growing, as the awareness of the negative effects of these non‐food additives increases. As with other foods, when  you make your own cheeses you control the ingredients and can guarantee that you are eating pure, whole foods and  not some man made synthetic product that you really should not to be putting into your body in the first place. While there is a specific science to cheese making, it is also an art form and a craft. The more cheese you make, the  better you will get at it. Once you have mastered the basics, you can begin to experiment and create your own  specialty cheeses to suit your personal tastes. Hundreds of different cheeses have been developed across the world  over centuries by artisans who have added their own personal magic to the craft. These cheese makers have  contributed to the creation of an incredibly rich culture of cheese making, benefiting both the cheese maker and the  cheese consumer. You too can create your own cheeses in your kitchen with minimal equipment for everyday  consumption and special occasions.

So many places to visit, so many delicious things to eat. Where to start, in a strange, new city? These nifty guides take visitors through the potentially bewildering process of finding authentic eats, across a variety of destinations. With a focus on what to eat, as much as where to eat, IN 12 DISHES will appeal to food-centric travellers who desire meaningful dining experiences across the gamut. The core assumption is that travellers want to plunge headfirst into local staples - iconic dishes that define a place. They want pad thai in Bangkok, bun cha in Hanoi, pao mo in Xi'an, shojin ryori in Kyoto and assam laksa in Penang. But...where to find the best? Highlighting12 must-eat dishes, with meaty information on where to find them, there's more than enough to give travellers the food heads-up. Depending on the city, there will also be features on cooking schools, regional restaurants, great cafes, food markets, day trips, walking tours and local eating etiquette. Gorgeously photographed and written in a snappy, engaging style, IN 12 DISHES is the indispensable guide for food-obsessed travellers. SHANGHAI Dazzling modernity. Enduring customs. Futuristic architecture. Art deco edifices. Cutting-edge couture. Traditional Chinese values. Ramshackle back streets. Blingy retail. Pre-dawn tai-chi. All night night-life. Michelin-starred chefs. Centuries-old food-ways. If one city has it all, it's Shanghai, the engine-room of China's super-star economy. Walk just a few blocks and you'll see everything from chi-chi young things shopping for the latest designer threads, to street-food vendors hawking rustic fare from humble mobile carts. Shanghai is exhilarating, dynamic and endlessly fascinating. But, when you're hungry, where do you start in a city with so much on its menu? Let SHANGHAI IN 12 DISHES be your essential dining primer, profiling twelve essential dishes, and a raft of places to find them. Plus, you'll get the heads-up on some world-class cafes, a day-trip itinerary, how to graze through iconic food streets, the low-down on the legandary hairy crab and much more besides. There's even a recipe or two. Welcome to eating like a local, Shanghai style!

A Rediscovered Queen of Australian Crime Melbourne‐born June Wright made quite a splash with the  publication of her debut novel, Murder in the Telephone  Exchange, in 1948. It was the bestselling mystery in Australia  that year, sales outstripping even those of the reigning queen  of crime, Agatha Christie. Wright went on to publish five more  top‐quality mysteries over the next two decades ‐ including  three featuring the irrpressible nun detective, Mother Paul ‐ while at the same time raising six children. When she died last year at the age of 92, June Wright's books  were largely forgotten, despite the praise she received at the  time and the championing of her work in such recent surveys of  the field as Stephen Knight's Continent of Mystery. All that's about to change; Dark Passage is proud to announce  the imminent republication of all June Wright's novels,  beginning in December 2013 with Murder in the Telephone  Exchange, followed by a previously unpublished mystery, Duck  Season Death, in April 2014. These two books include extended  introductions by Derham Groves. The other five novels will  follow at intervals over the the next two years.

Maggie Byrnes is married now, with a young son, and living in  a quiet Melbourne suburb. But violent death dogs her  footsteps even in apparently tranquil Middleburn. It's perhaps  not such a surprise when a widely disliked local bigwig (who  also happens to be Maggie's landlord) is shot, but Maggie  suspects that someone is also trying to poison the infant who  is his heir, and turns sleuth once more to uncover the culprits.  This is June Wright's second novel, which she originally  planned to call Who Would Murder a Baby? Her publishers  drew the line at that, but under any title it's a worthy sequel to  Murder in the Telephone Exchange. Includes a new introduction by Lucy Sussex plus her fascinating  1996 interview with June Wright.

June Wright wrote this lost gem in the mid‐1950s, but  consigned it to her bottom drawer after her publisher foolishly  rejected it. Perhaps it was a little ahead of its time? Because  while it's a tour de force of the classic 'country house' murder  mystery, it's also a delightful romp, poking fun at the  conventions of the genre. When someone takes advantage of a  duck hunt to murder publisher Athol Sefton at a remote  hunting inn, it soon turns out that virtually everyone, guests  and staff alike, had a good reason for shooting him. Sefton's  nephew Charles thinks he can solve the crime by applying the  "rules of the game" he's absorbed from his years as a reviewer  of detective fiction ‐ except the killer evidently isn't playing by  those rules. Duck Season Death is a both a fiendishly clever  whodunit and a marvellous entertainment.

Frank Cousins is a knock‐about sort of a bloke. He's also the owner and sole employee of the Tasmanian Private Investigation Agency and, as his dear old mother said, 'occasionally his own worst  enemy'. That was until Frank meets Joe Shadii, aka 'The Pharaoh'. Frank is hired by a London based solicitor to find the twin sister of his client in Hobart. It starts out as an easy‐peasy, money for jam case that turns  nasty. Then an ex‐girlfriend, the lost love of his life, calls upon him to assist her brother who looks like going down for the brutal murder of his pregnant  partner. And of course, Frank takes on the case. But, as with most of Frank's life, all is not what it first appears. Smuggled heroin, a handful of murders and coming to face with The Pharaoh was not  what Frank had anticipated in trying to win back his lost love. It's all just as his dear old mother used to tell him, 'sometimes, life's just like that.'

Follow the footsteps from my growing up country Wiluna,  WA to Sydney, NSW... At sixteen years of age life for me was looking good as it  came towards the end of the Christmas Holidays. I  believed I would not have to travel over 800 kilometres  by slow train from Wiluna to Perth to attend school at  Aquinas College, where I would again be a boarder, as I  had been for several years. However I was given one hell of a shock when my father  announced at dinner that I would be leaving for Perth the  following Sunday to go to Perth University and study for  several years to follow the family tradition to become a  mining engineer. That night there was no time for sleeping ‐ when all was quiet after midnight I packed a few clothes,  rifle and  ammunition, then quietly wheeled my bike out  through the front gate and rode away...

Shy looked back over his shoulder. He'd expected to see Missy following him but instead, in the distance, he could see  the empty white branch shining in the moonlight. Missy was nowhere to be seen... Julie felt she had found an issue where she could make a contribution that would have an effect on the future of the  planet and had thrown herself whole heartedly into saving the Leadbeaters Possums from the threat of logging on  Murphy's Spur. After trapping a possum, called Missy, Julie becomes disillusioned with the intentions of the protest group and,  releasing her, leaves. Meanwhile, as daylight was fading, the colony of Leadbeater Possums on Murphy's Spur had set out to forage in the  territory below, returning early, disgruntled and complaining of the shortage of sustenance that was to be found  nearby. They had to move. Their only option was to the adjoining dangerous park. Following the logging, while living a precarious and at times tragic life in the park, the colony waited for the day when,  with regrowth established, they would return to Murphy's Spur. However, a further calamity awaited them before a return to Murphy's Spur would be realised.

Author Information Robyn Locket grew up on a dairy farm in the Baw Baw Region of Victoria, where her father worked on sawmills in the surrounding bush. When in the nineties, the Leadbeaters Possums were used in a campaign against logging in the Central Highlands, she decided to find out more about these fascinating little creatures. Over the years a story evolved and, with the assistance of her husband, she took numerous photos that resulted in the illustrations in this book. Having grown up in the same area and working in the bush since he was fifteen he knew the bush like the back of his hand. Recently, a new campaign to cease logging has begun, again using the Leadbeaters Possums. It is hoped that by reading this book you will get a better understanding of our Leadbeaters Possums and how they live, as well as the actual effect of logging on their livelihood.

1970, OUTBACK NEW SOUTH WALES...  On a lonely, gravel road, Traffic Policeman James Cook is found dead. Along with his motorcycle, Cook is horrifically mutilated  and crushed, then left to the elements beside the road. Despite twelve months of intensive investigations, the brutal murder  remains unsolved. Undercover Detective Al Carmody is sent in to re‐investigate, after enlisting the help of his friend, road train operator and  former policeman, Ian. In true Australian style the two comrades spend as much time and effort teasing and abusing each  other as they do probing the baffling crime. Meanwhile Carmody's colleagues in Sydney stumble across a link between one of his suspects and the subject of a high  powered, Interpol led, task force. Reluctantly, the two forces combine, after Interpol reveal their target could trigger World  War 3. A fortune in diamonds is missing from an African country. A sheep station owner may be the surprising culprit. When the  violent climax is reached, several persons are exposed as something other than their appearance. Even the late Constable Cook has has a secret to reveal. Author Information Terry Richardson was born in Sydney in June 1955. He spent his early childhood in the New South Wales outback, including the tiny towns of Hungerford and Ford’s Bridge. His formative years were spent in Brewarrina, before leaving school at the end of 1970. After a brief career with the then Post Master General’s Department, Terry followed the example of numerous country boys before him, and boarded the slow ‘mixed’ train from Brewarrina to start a new life in Sydney. His total possessions amounted to one small suitcase, a sleeping bag and his prized electric guitar. In the city he tried several occupations, including training as a motor mechanic, a short railway career, truck driver and even a two-year stint in policing as a Constable, before joining NSW Fire/Rescue in 1982. He retired as a Fire/Rescue Officer in 2011. Both at school and work Terry enjoyed writing, using his vivid imagination and wide-ranging life experiences as backgrounds for the plots. The game of Rugby League is usually featured in his novels, as Terry and his family are avid fans. Country railways are another favourite subject which usually rate a mention in any Terry Richardson novel. Terry met Linda soon after arriving in Sydney in 1971. They were married in 1975 and have three adult children and eleven grandchildren. They now reside in the Riverina district of New South Wales.

Trochus is a story of one man's dream to make an equitable life for himself and his family. After being forced out of his  previous livelihood, Warren Hill recovers a wrecked vessel considered to be near‐unsalvageable, intending to  transform it into a vessel tailor‐made for collecting trochus shells off the Queensland coast.  The salvage and rebuild of the vessel is only the start. From the time the boat was launched they were fraught with  obstacles thrown from numerous directions, making it near impossible to get the boat to sea. A simple business  venture becomes a lightning rod for unwanted attention from enemies unknown. And things only get worse after the  vessel makes its maiden voyage as the Lara Star. The story of the Lara Star is one of great dreams and determination, but also one of greed and corruption. Banks, the  local police force and politicians could be either friend or foe. It's a story of sabotage, extortion and attempted  murder ‐ a compelling maze of events so random it's almost unbelievable. It all happened in a Central Queensland coastal city. Unfortunately it is all true. Author Information Warren grew up in the North Queensland town of Mackay. After his mother left home, he saw no future for himself in studying at school, living for the day and ignoring the future. He left school at the end of Year 10 with a dismal pass that did not justify the Commonwealth Scholarship he was awarded. After working as a farm labourer, cutting and carting sugar cane, he commenced an apprenticeship as a boilermaker, although he spent most of his apprenticeship in the drafting office. As well as being highly intelligent and athletic, Warren has always been good with his hands. As a young man he designed and built his own home. Since 1973 he has made a living working on the water. He started as a tug seaman and later worked as a master pearler and a reef charter operator on his own boat, eventually working throughout the entirety of the Great Barrier Reef. He still lives in Mackay with his wife of 43 years, Barbara. He does not regard himself as a writer but he has always been a story teller. He just had to put his story down on paper. The request for him to write about four harrowing years of his life came from his daughter. She was right, the story needed to be told.

World War II is ending. The enemy is advancing. In the far north‐eastern reaches of the Empire, the German citizens  are terrified. The victorious Russian army is determined to sweep the area clean of German settlement and reports of  atrocities are reaching the farmers of the village of Rucken in the Memelland. Franz, Helena and their two teenage  daughters must flee before the arrival of the Russians. Leaving everything except what could be packed onto their  farm wagon they travel west to escape death. Now they must struggle along overcrowded roads, evade falling artillery  shells and the strafing of screaming fighter planes, bear biting hunger and suffer the freezing winter in an attempt to  stay ahead of destruction.  Amidst this terror and death they find that there are those who have not lost their humanity and are happy to help  them in their struggle towards safety. But will this alone suffice? This story is based on the experiences of an actual  family who hopes to see the dawn of a new day in areas conquered by more humane victors.  Author Information Glen Natalier was born into a closely knit rural community in the Lockyer Valley in Queensland, Australia. He chose not to stay on the family farm but completed the necessary studies to become a high school teacher of geography and German language. During these teaching years he wrote a number of geography text books directed towards the syllabus requirements at that time. This allowed him to travel widely collecting, first hand, material and photographs to be used in the books. Years of teaching have left him with a love of learning and he finds that writing helps detract from the cares and worries which always seem to arise. The tennis and footballs of previous years have morphed into golf balls which bring great pleasure when seen against the green of the centre of a fairway. Now retired, he lives with his wife, Jill, caring for a teenage grandson. They live in a town just over a few hills from where he was born. Their four children and their families are scattered around Australia.

Australia is an upbeat, quirky and sometimes humorous lo ok at Australia and Australians ‐ the land, its people and its  wildlife ‐ and what we value  about our past that makes us proud now. Records,  statistics, key dates, essential facts and achievements are  presented in charts and lists, and supplemented by  surprising information and intriguing stories  about the people who shaped our nation ‐ the famous and the infamous. Fact spreads give thumbnail  basics of topics  such as prime ministers, buildings and  classic Australian films. 'Then and now' spreads, which are  largely pictorial. Throughout are poems and pertinent  quotes. Photographic spreads highlight landscapes and  wildlife. This engaging celebration of Australia is both an  almanac and photographic record, the words and pictures  coming together to create a vibrant picture of the country  in which we live.

Is Urban Farming an Urban Myth?

We can’t all have a farm in the city. So, when enthusiasts talk about ‘urban farming’, they simply mean that city folk too are able to pursue limited ‘rural’ activities: some fish and edible water plants in a pond; growing a few fruit trees, vegetables and herbs in the backyard; keeping some chooks, ducks or bees maybe; or for a few on outer suburban blocks perhaps a dairy goat or a couple of pigs. And, if none of that is possible, one can simply buy (organic) meat and milk, or fruit and vege, to process at home: brewing beer, or making cheese, wine, bread or sausages; or preserving tomatoes, olives and other vegetables. The aim is not individual self-sufficiency, but to promote a culture where local is preferred over global, fresh and seasonal over imports, and freerange and organic practices over factory farming. It reflects the desire to reduce waste and for food to be honest and uncomplicated, without additives, chemicals and other pollutants, either in growing or processing it. And, as it is said that ‘animal agriculture is choking the earth and making us sick,’ it is also about reducing meat consumption and insisting on animal products from cruelty-free sources. In short, ‘urban farming’ reflects both a lifestyle and a political choice, and if you want to join in, DJA has the books to help you on your way. A triumph of urban farming is Growing Honest Food’s story of Tony and Lina Siciliano’s Rose Creek Estate in inner-suburban Melbourne, where, on a mere 3 acres, they manage to grow and produce commercial quantities of olive oil and wine, as well as a big harvest of seasonal vegetables and fruit for

preserving and immediate consumption. The book also features sections on keeping chickens and making sausages and salami, and is full of recipes and snippets on Calabrian food and cultural traditions. Less ambitious, but in the same spirit is Community Gardens, whilst Jackie French’s well-known classics, Backyard Self-sufficiency and The Wilderness Garden, have been continually available in numerous reprints and 2 editions for more than a quarter of a century! Organic growing of specific crops and plants are covered by Penny Woodward’s Asian Herbs and Vegetables, Garlic, and Herbs for Australian Gardens; Allen Gilbert’s All About Apples, Berry Bounty, Citrus, Just Nuts, and Tomatoes for Everyone; and by some specialist titles like Edible Water Gardens, and the Pumpkin Book. Small-scale animal husbandry is covered in Jackie French’s Chook Book, Thorndyke’s Lucky Ducks, Owens’ Keeping Your Own Free-range Pigs, and Cliff’s Bee Book and Home Dairy. For those without their own patch to get their hands dirty, the Weed Forager’s Handbook shows how to complement their weekly shop by collecting edible plants from the urban wilds of parks, nature strips, river banks and creek reserves; and the secrets of making the most of all that produce are revealed in Windfalls, Smoking Food, Drying Food, and Preserving Meat, whilst John Downes’ Natural Tucker Bread Book is the original go-to source for anyone interested in home-baked sourdough, yeasted or unleavened breads – it set the trend more than 20 years ago!

Reprinted due to popular demand When Georges closed its doors on 5 October 1995, it  had been trading for 115 years. Yet this famous  department store, situated in the 'Paris End' of  Collins Street, still lingers in the minds of many  today. Remembering Georges documents the  memories of staff and clients before this living  connection fades. The unique 'voice' of each  interviewee shines through, because the memories  are in their own words. This richly illustrated book  displays some of the fabulous images associated  with Georges, reflecting the style and elegance of  the store itself. Georges devotees, as well as those  interested in fashion, design, and Melbourne's retail  and social history, will revel in the stories held  within.  'I, like many other people, remember Georges very  fondly. I wanted to document the memories of staff  and clients, and display some of the fabulous images 

This lavishly produced book features rare images of  Melbourne architecture, theatre and memorabilia.    Bruce McBrien experienced first‐hand life at the top  of Melbourne's social strata in the early 20th  century. In rich detail, McBrien describes his  childhood years living at Harrison House in Spring  Street, and paints a vivid picture of inner‐city  Melbourne in the early‐ to mid‐1900s. His family's  social standing gave McBrien a rare perspective on  Melbourne life, as is illustrated through his many  brushes with iconic politicians, royalty and  celebrities over the years.   McBrien spent much of  his life working as a musical theatre actor and is a  passionate supporter and long‐serving volunteer of  the National Trust of Victoria. Marvellous Melbourne  and Me details not only the varied life of the man,  but also that of his city.

Sculptures of Melbourne explores major changes in  the nature of public sculpture. When Melbourne was  established, sculpture was heavily influenced by the  colonial legacy of neo‐classical bronze and marble  statues. From 1980 onwards, public sculpture  changed dramatically, not only in style but in  materials, location and sheer numbers.  This book tells the story of how the shifting trends in  public sculpture moved from a classical style, to  commemorative, to a corporate modernist style, to  being integrated into urban design, and finally  evolving into a contemporary style, which is non‐ traditional and temporary. The history includes  controversial modernist sculptures such as 'The  Yellow Peril' and unofficial laneway installation  works. The book is written in an easy accessible style and is  also a pictorial essay of Melbourne's sculptures.

Oik the crab has an attitude problem, but a brush with misfortune teaches him to value his family and friends. His colourful  adventures make for a fun and engaging early reader chapter book, full to the brim with bright underwater characters.

Author Information James grew up on a family property near the small community of Merrygoen in central NSW. A typical village with all the essentials one could possibly want. A pub, a general store, church and a wheat silo to name a few! Growing up in the bush without television and other electronic distraction meant creating your own fun. You could be a cowboy, a spaceman or whatever you wanted to be. School essays became a highlight and a welcome opportunity for James to release his imagination. Looking to the future, James says, ‘We as people have to be more careful in the way we treat our environment. As with most things today, the Great Barrier Reef faces many devastating threats. The adults of tomorrow are our future and perhaps for now, The Incredible Oik the Crab is just the answer we need.’ With no formal training and self-taught, Eric always loved to draw. He took art at school and relished any opportunity to pick up a pencil at home. He enjoyed experimenting with different media – ink, pencil and coloured pencils. During his formative years, Eric’s heroes were people such as Walt Disney, Ralph Steadman, Heath Robinson, Georges Proaper Remi (known by the pen name ‘Herge’) and M.C. Escher. Eric was also inspired by the artwork of his grandfather, who worked in pastels and charcoal, and his mother who liked to use watercolour. Both of whom were also self taught. In Eric’s own words he says, ‘I would like to think some of my family’s talent has rubbed off on me! I take inspiration from life and how I would like life to be. Learning new methods and evolving my work is an ever-present companion. To visualise an image through a child’s eyes – colour and surprise detail is very important to their concept of the story.’ With no formal training and self-taught, Eric always loved to draw.

The International Women’s Day book that states there is no solution to climate change without women’s empowerment. Big cities don’t have to mean a dystopian future. They can be turned around to be powerhouses of well-being and environmental sustainability – if we empower women. This book is a unique collaboration between C40 and Friends of the Earth showcasing pioneering city mayors, key voices in the environmental and feminist movements, and academics. The essays collectively demonstrate both the need for women’s empowerment for climate action and the powerful change it can bring. A rallying call – for the planet, for women, for everyone.

Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) have become the cultural icons of the 21st century. Figures like Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg are held up as role models who epitomise the modern pursuit of innovation, wealth and success. We now live, Bloom and Rhodes argue, in a ‘CEO society’ – a society where corporate leadership has become the model for transforming not just business, but all spheres of life, where everyone from politicians to jobseekers to even those seeking love are expected to imitate the qualities of the lionized corporate executive.

Sexuality is a complex and multifaceted domain – encompassing bodily, contextual and subjective experiences that resist ready categorisation. To claim the sexual as a viable research object therefore raises a number of important methodological questions: what is it possible to know about experiences, practices and perceptions of sex and sexualities? What approaches might help or hinder our efforts to probe such experiences? Edited by Charlotte Morris, Paul Boyce, Andrea Cornwall, Hannah Frith, Laura Harvey, and Yingying Huang

A city of over one million people caught between volcanic eruptions and armed conflict, Goma has come to embody the ‘tragedy’ that is the Democratic Republic of Congo. Often portrayed by outsiders as a living hell, Goma is nevertheless a city of opportunity for others.Drawing on a rich tapestry of personal narratives, from taxi driver to market trader, doctor to local humanitarian worker, Goma: Stories of Strength and Sorrow from Eastern Congo provides an engaging and unconventional portrait of an African city.

The closer he gets to death, the more he starts to live Joel lives in a nursing home and he’s not one bit happy about it. He doesn’t like being told when to eat, when to sleep, when to take his pills. In fact, he doesn’t like living at all, and he’s decided he’s going to end his life on his terms. When he tells retired soap-actor Frank about his dark plan, Frank urges him to go out with a bang. Together, they embark on a mission to find the perfect suicide, and along the way, discover the strength of friendship when you really feel alone.

Courage can be found in the smallest of places. Four-year-old Danny lives with his mother, Natalie, in a small Sussex town.

But Karen’s impact is to reach far beyond this one generous gesture, as she and Natalie embark on an intense relationship. Told in the voice of an intelligent, passionate and unusual child, Tale of a Tooth is an immersive and compelling look at the impact of domestic abuse on a vulnerable family unit.

Loo Rolls to Lycra: The Ironman Dreams of an IBD Sufferer is the inspirational and insightful biography of Caroline Bramwell, a wife and mother who believed her life was going down the toilet when she was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease. With an encyclopaedic knowledge of every public toilet, bush or tree to dive behind, and after numerous extreme dietary regimes, Caroline elected to have her large intestine removed, to live with a permanent ileostomy. A self-confessed couch potato, Caroline turned to sport after surgery, dispelling the medical profession’s ‘you can’t do that’ attitude by announcing her London-to-Paris 24-hour cycle ride. Motivated to learn to swim by her children, her enthusiasm for triathlon was lit after meeting Ironmanworld champion Chrissie Wellington. Caroline has competed at all triathlon distances, including the full Ironman UK, and has become one of the UK’s leading ostomy triathletes. Loo Rolls to Lycra is the epitome of the self-belief that anything is possible.

Pironi: The Champion that Never Was relates the remarkable story of motor racing’s ‘forgotten man’, ex-Ferrari F1 driver and offshore powerboat racer, Didier Pironi. The book charts an incredible journey which took the young Parisian to the heights of triumph and the depths of despair. Before he joined the legendary Ferrari stable, Pironi was already a Formula Renault, Le Mans and grand prix winner. By 1982, the time had surely come for the enigmatic Frenchman to become his country’s first Formula 1 world champion. He was to come tantalisingly close to achieving that lifetime ambition, ahead in the world championship and in pole position for the German Grand Prix – before crashing so disastrously in practice. Over the next five years he fought a long and painful battle to return to the cockpit to reclaim the title that had eluded him that grim morning. It was not to be. Thereafter Didier turned his attention to offshore powerboating, where his remarkable life would come to a shattering end in the icy waters of the English Channel.

Set amid the glamour and bravado of 1980s Formula 1, The Power and the Glory tells the story of a rivalry unsurpassed in motorracing history. By the mid-80s Alain Prost had firmly established himself as leader of the F1 pack. Winning Grands Prix almost at will, the French ace radiated invincibility. But then came the emergence of Ayrton Senna, sparking a decadelong battle for supremacy out on the track. Although chalk and cheese in terms of character and background, the two men were driven by the same burning desire: to become Formula 1’s heavyweight champion of the world, its undisputed king. Senna and Prost would both go on to win multiple world championships in what was a golden era for F1 racing. Their Suzuka showdowns of 1988-90 attracted record worldwide audiences and popularised the sport as never before. An intimate portrait of two unique competitors, The Power and the Glory is a supercharged story of acrimony and sheer ambition.

Since Victorian times, the MCC had embraced the amateur ideal that cricket was more than a game. It was the very essence of camaraderie and good sportsmanship. Yet for all their evangelising, the game’s privileged elite were part of a British establishment which revelled in its national prestige and imperial hegemony. And winning at cricket was essential to maintaining that stature. Ambassadors of Goodwill assesses the MCC’s attempt to marry these conflicting objectives and foster goodwill within the Empire via long, formal overseas tours. After the war, the amateur ideal suffered when Len Hutton was appointed England’s first professional captain. His uncompromising leadership brought success on the field but discord off it. Managers were installed to restore diplomatic harmony but, with the growing upheavals of the late 60s, cricket became increasingly associated with nationality, race and professional cynicism. Ray Illingworth’s controversial win in Australia in 1970/71 clearly signalled the MCC’s waning influence.
