Adam Mansbach Illustrations by Ricardo Cortés Go the Fuck to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing blissfully off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate, and radically honest, California Book Award-winning author Adam Mansbach’s verses perfectly capture the familiar—and unspoken—tribulations of putting your little angel down for the night. In the process, they open up a conversation about parenting, granting us permission to admit our frustrations, and laugh at their absurdity. With illustrations by Ricardo Cortés, Go the Fuck to Sleep is beautiful, subversive and pants-wettingly funny—a book for parents new, old and expectant. You probably should not read it to your children.


‘The language? WTF! This hilarious, politically incorrect book is totally correct about the feelings of sleepless, brain-dead parents.’ Mem Fox, author of Possum Magic, mother of one

Not to mention a very clever, very mysterious female cat burglar who may or may not be planning something on his patch. On top of all that, Challis has been carpeted by the boss for speaking out about police budget cuts and he’s missing his lover, Ellen Destry, who is overseas on a study tour. Meanwhile, at the Waterloo Police Station, something interesting is going on between Constable Pam Murphy and Jeannie Schiff, the feisty young sergeant on secondment from the Sex Crimes Unit.

This is the story of the twenty years of eating it took Mal to become the fattest man in the world. The sheet that grew into the skin of his back. The fan mail he received. The TV crews who wanted to show him to the world. This is the story of how Mal became a planet, and his family became moons, caught in his orbit. Now Mal’s death may be the only thing that can save his family— because his life has destroyed it.

My Undercover Journey to the Dark Heart of the Hells Angels

Jay Dobyns As told to Nils Johnson-Shelton

Would you go to the gates of hell for your job? In 2001 an American federal agent did just that. No Angel reveals, in unflinching detail, how for one year Jay ‘Bird’ Dobyns infiltrated the Hells Angels and their seductive underworld of allegiances, violence and high-speed living. Bird left his family safe in suburbia and stepped into the Hells Angels’ clubhouse and their web of organised crime. He dealt stolen arms and drank with wanted criminals. He listened to the tales of broken men and women driven into the tattooed arms of biker gangs. And all along, whether on the open road or in seedy backrooms, death was only one wrong move away. This book is a wild ride through one of the world’s most violent, unpredictable organisations. No Angel screams along with the noise, power and force of the Hells Angels in full formation.

‘A hardboiled, rapid-fire memoir that is tough, tense and terrifying.’ Andrew Rule, co-author of the Underbelly true crime series

Jay Dobyns joined the American Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in 1987, and within ten days was held hostage and shot in the chest. Between 2001 and 2003 he infiltrated the Hells Angels as an undercover agent. Jay was offered membership into the gang after proving that he was just as lethal as any other Angel.

The official companion book to the HBO® miniseries available on DVD and Blu-Ray

Hugh Ambrose’s bestseller follows the struggles and triumphs of four US Marines and a US Navy carrier pilot fighting in the Pacific region during World War II. Built on hundreds of hours of testimony, as well as diaries, letters and memoirs, The Pacific tells the true stories of men who put their lives on the line for the Allied forces; men who were dispatched to the other side of the world to fight an enemy who preferred suicide to surrender; men who suffered hardship and humiliation in POW camps; men who witnessed casualties among soldiers and civilians alike; and men whose medals came at a shocking price— a price paid in full. ‘Extremely good…The TV series might offer us a glimpse of that distant conflict in the Pacific. Hugh Ambrose’s book gives us the greatest generation in the round.’ Scotsman ‘A brutal account…for those who want more of the nightmare of those foxholes after ten hours of The Pacific, this book is for you.’ The Times

Adrian Hyland Kinglake-350 to VKC. Urgent, do you read me? The fire’s here now. God help us. Kinglake-350 is a masterpiece of writing about family, community, country life and what happens when a day of ultimate terror arrives. Adrian Hyland takes a dramatic and compelling sequence of events on that day and weaves them into a picture of universal significance and deep fascination. On 7 February 2009 Roger Wood was the police officer in charge of Kinglake, at the epicentre of the worst bushfire disaster in Australia’s history, Black Saturday. As the firestorm engulfed the community, he risked his life, again and again, to try and save people. With the fire raging all around, he phoned home to warn his wife what was coming. She screamed that the fire had already hit their property. Then the line went dead. Black Saturday was a many-headed monster in whose wake stories of grief, heroism and desolation erupted all over the state of Victoria. This is a book about the monster—and the heroism of those who confronted it. PRAISE FOR ADRIAN HYLAND’S NOVELS

ANOTHER CAR PULLS UP at the roadblock. ‘But where are we supposed to go?’ the driver pleads when Wood doesn’t let them through. In fact, nowhere on the mountain is safe right now. Officially, he isn’t allowed to tell them anything, but he’s been letting them all know what he plans to do: shelter at the CFA. ‘Your best bet…’ He catches the look on the driver’s face—the dropped jaw, the wide eyes—and spins around. Jesus. It’s there. Exploding along the treetops, less than a hundred metres away. He’s seen bushfires before, but nothing like this, nothing this big, this close: massive whirls of naked flame, sixty, eighty metres over the trees. The first wild bolt of fear shoots through his chest. The radio is still screaming ‘Kilmore, Wandong. Kilmore!’ Still thirty k’s away! What’s this inferno doing here? How is that possible? There’s been no warning, no mention of Kinglake at all. There’s been an almighty cock-up somewhere. Roger Wood has a mental flash of what’s about to happen: Adrian Hyland lives in St Andrews, in the foothills of the Kinglake Ranges, and teaches at La Trobe University. His novels Diamond Dove and Gunshot Road are also published by Text.

chaos is breaking loose. The rules have just flown out the window, and that means it’s every man for himself. Except for him. He thumps the roof of the car. ‘Back into the CFA at Kinglake West! Safe as you’re gonna get up here today. Go! ’



Such is Life Whatever you call it—memoir, personal essay, biography, life stories—there is insatiable hunger for the stories of real people facing impossible odds, or dealing with the mundanity of life. Such is Life showcases many such tales, and explores the way these narratives help us make sense of the world, despite conflicts about privacy, truth and perspective. Some of the hunger for these stories comes from social networking, which makes connection easier and constant. Is this a culture that welcomes difference, or one that threatens to reduce identity to formulaic ‘likes’ and consumer profiling? The best personal stories provide insights—but sometimes at considerable cost. With contributions from Australia’s leading writers, this edition of Griffith REVIEW features memoir, essays and fiction that investigate how we understand ourselves, each other and the web of life surrounding us.

Arnold Zable A new collection of spellbinding true stories. From the songs of Arab diva Umm Khulthum on the banks of the Tigris, to the strains of a young boy playing the violin for his mother in Melbourne, to the swing jazz of the nightclubs and cabarets of 1940s Baghdad, a fisherman playing a flute on the banks of the Mekong, and Paganini in the borderlands of eastern Poland… Music weaves its way through each of these spellbinding stories. Each tale, each fragment of music, leads to Amal, the woman who saved her life by clinging to a corpse for twenty hours alone in the sea. These are tales of hardship, of yearning and of celebration. Tales that span the globe, and bring us back to Melbourne, to the powerful and heartbreaking story of Amal—her flight from Baghdad, her fears boarding the unseaworthy boat every Australian would hear about as the SIEV X, her survival when it went down, and her desire to have her story told. ‘Maybe this is why I am alive,’ Amal says, ‘to tell the story of the people who sank in the ocean.’ ‘Arnold Zable is a true storyteller: you hear his stories, not only in your head, but also in your soul.’ Good Reading


‘A writer who turns the unnoticed and the overlooked into something fine and lustrous.’ Courier-Mail

Arnold Zable was born in New Zealand and grew up in Melbourne. His books—most of them published by Text—include Jewels and Ashes, The Fig Tree, Cafe Scheherazade, Scraps of Heaven and Sea of Many Returns. He is a human rights advocate and president of the International PEN, Melbourne.

John Ajvide Lindqvist Translated from the Swedish by Marlaine Delargy

‘Lindqvist balances horror with credibly drawn feeling…and of course the setting helps enormously: they make a vivid picture, blood and snow.’ Age ‘Can a horror thriller be truly enjoyable? Certainly in the hands of Swedish author Lindqvist…Intelligent writing, poetic

imagery, a deft turn of phrase, this is no slice and dice shocker (except for the chainsaw duel).’ Adelaide Advertiser ‘MUST READ.’ Sunday Telegraph ‘A magician of genre fiction…Lindqvist again trips along that thin high wire between supernatural devices and psychological verities…between monsters outside and demons within, Lindqvist covers the haunted waterfront.’ Independent


On a winter trip home to the island of Domarö, Anders and Cecilia take their six-year-old daughter Maja across the ice to visit the lighthouse. And Maja disappears, leaving not even a footprint in the snow. Two years later, Anders is alone and more or less permanently drunk. He returns to Domarö to confront his despair, and slowly realises that Maja’s disappearance is not the first inexplicable tragedy to strike the islanders. Nor is everyone telling him all they know; even his own grandmother, it seems, is keeping secrets. And what is it about the sea? There’s something very bad happening on Domarö. Something that involves the sea itself.

John Ajvide Lindqvist lives in Sweden. His first novel, Let the Right One In, was published in thirty countries and adapted into two feature films: one by Swedish director Tomas Alfredson, and an English-language version directed by Matt Reeves, Let Me In. His novels Handling the Undead and Little Star are also published by Text.

Alice LaPlante Dr Jennifer White’s lifelong friend Amanda is dead—murdered. Four of her fingers were surgically removed after death, and Dr White is the main suspect. But she doesn’t know if she did it. As the police investigation closes in, dementia takes hold of White, and she searches her everfragmented mind for images of herself in Amanda’s house that day. Is her shattered memory preventing her from finding the truth or helping her to hide it? Turn of Mind is a remarkable debut: literary novel and thriller, and a stunning exploration of a crumbling reality. Through White’s eloquent, fractured voice, Alice LaPlante examines the frailty of memory and how it defines our very existence. ‘Really terrific—ambitious, clever and human.’ Nicci French

‘Wonderful. This harrowing exploration of the slow disintegration of the mind is deeply touching and utterly heartbreaking, while also being a compelling page-turner. I loved it.’ S. J. Watson, author of Before I Go to Sleep ‘A masterful accomplishment.’ Joyce Maynard

Alice LaPlante is an awardwinning writer who teaches at San Francisco State University and Stanford University, where she received a Wallace Stegner Fellowship and held a Jones Lectureship. Raised in Chicago, she now lives with her family in Northern California. Turn of Mind is her first novel.

A Sniper’s Story

Nicolai Lilin

Translated from the Italian by Jamie Richards

He was lying down straight, his legs extended, his hands joined over his heart, as if before dying he had tried to keep his soul from escaping. His face was completely white, his skin looked like marble, all taut over his bones, the veins on his neck and temples black. His eyes wide open, so black you couldn’t tell their colour. Free Fall is a brutal and engrossing war memoir told through the eyes of a young soldier. Nicolai Lilin was conscripted and trained as a sniper in an unorthodox Russian special forces regiment called the Saboteurs. This elite band, operating outside traditional military codes, fought their way through multiple assignments in the inhospitable terrain of Chechnya. Unflinching and unforgiving, Free Fall is a gripping account of one man’s experiences in a controversial and bloody war. PRAISE FOR LILIN’S BESTSELLING MEMOIR SIBERIAN EDUCATION

‘A fascinating and very readable account of life in the Siberian criminal underground.’ Rusty Young, author of Marching Powder ‘Terrifying, fascinating, horrific and violent.’ Simon Sebag Montefiore, author of Young Stalin ‘Makes most of what we call true crime writing seem insipid… a marvellous and illuminating book.’ Irvine Welsh

Nicolai Lilin was born in 1981 and grew up in the small republic of Transnistria, which declared its independence in 1990 but has never been recognised. Lilin left home to fight in the Russian army against the Chechens. Lilin later lived in Ireland, before moving to Italy, where he works as a tattooist in Turin.

‘In everything that Raimond Gaita writes we sense a generous heart at work, as well as a lucid intelligence.’ J. M. Coetzee

Raimond Gaita People have often asked me how I survived my childhood reasonably sane. They think it was because my father and Hora loved me deeply and that I never doubted it. But as much as— perhaps more than—that, it was the fact that I came to see the world in the light that my father’s goodness cast upon it.


In 1998 Raimond Gaita’s Romulus, My Father was first published—the story of his father who came to Australia from Europe with his young wife, Christine, and their four-year-old son after the end of the Second World War. In the isolated landscape of country Victoria, Christine succumbed to mental illness, and a series of tragedies befell the family. Described by Richard Flanagan as ‘a profound meditation on love and death, madness and truth, judgment and compassion’, Romulus, My Father became a classic book and was turned into a highly acclaimed film. Now, thirteen years later, Raimond Gaita has put together this collection of essays in which he reflects on the writing of the book, the making of the film, his relationship to the desolate beauty of the central Victorian landscape, his father and, most movingly, the presence and absence of his mother and his unassuaged longing for her. Raimond Gaita was born in Germany in 1946. He is a professorial fellow in the Melbourne Law School and the Faculty of Arts, University of Melbourne, and emeritus professor of moral philosophy at King’s College, London.

A new novel about the family we first met in The Secret River

Kate Grenville From the beginning Jack and I was friends. Somehow our way of looking at things fitted together. He never called me Dolly, the way the others did, only my full and proper name. Sarah Thornhill is the youngest child of William Thornhill, convict-turnedlandowner on the Hawkesbury River. She grows up in the fine house her father is so proud of, a strong-willed young woman who’s certain where her future lies. She’s known Jack Langland since she was a child, and always loved him. But the past is waiting in ambush with its dark legacy. There’s a secret in Sarah’s family, something kept hidden from the world and from her. A secret Jack can’t live with. A secret that changes everything, for both of them. Kate Grenville takes us back to the early Australia of The Secret River and the Thornhill family. This is Sarah’s story. It’s a story of tangled secrets, a story of loss and unlooked-for happiness, and a story about the silent spaces of the past. ‘Grenville inhabits characters with a rare completeness…She writes with a poet’s sense of rhythm and imagery.’ Guardian


‘Grenville’s craft is, as always, astounding, deftly melding subject and metaphor, story and image.’ Canberra Times Kate Grenville is one of Australia’s finest writers. She won the Orange Prize in 2001 for The Idea of Perfection. The Secret River, published in more than twenty countries, was awarded the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, and was shortlisted for both the Miles Franklin Literary Award and the Man Booker Prize.

Italian Nights and Days

Kate Holden

‘A sensual, sexy, brutally honest memoir.’ Marie Claire ‘This isn’t a rom-com Roman holiday and the lessons learnt in love can be bruising.’ Vogue

‘A story of loneliness and isolation, as the protagonist searches for meaning in her actions and struggles to accept her past and embrace her future.’ Yen ‘I loved this book for its honesty and its beautiful prose.’ Bookseller+Publisher ‘A stunningly talented writer.’ Guardian


Kate Holden’s bestselling memoir In My Skin told the story of her unexpected slide into heroin addiction and prostitution—and of her gruelling recovery. The Romantic tells what happened next. When Kate decides to leave her past behind in Melbourne, it is the beginning of a new journey. In the ruins of Rome and the piazzas of Naples, through poetry and passion, in strange streets and strange beds, she hopes to find truth. But this pilgrimage requires courage: in Italy she may find true love, or lose her heart altogether. Or even find herself. Sexy, dark and intoxicating, The Romantic asks: when you’ve traded in sex, what does it cost to love others—and yourself?

Kate Holden’s first book was In My Skin. It was published to critical acclaim and has sold to publishers in ten territories. Kate has also written a popular column for the Age newspaper for several years, as well as widely published essays, short stories and literary criticism. She lives in Melbourne.

Woman and Mother

Elisabeth Badinter Translated from the French by Adriana Hunter Today, to be pregnant seems not far from entering into a religious order. There is an expectation that mothers will fit the bill of breastfeeding, nappy-washing, home-cooking supermums. So are mums who rely on formula, childcare and disposable nappies lazy or liberated? The conflict between a woman’s individual identity and her identity as a mother is not unique to our time. In the eighteenth century, French women overcame the problem by shipping their newborns off to wet nurses. But not anymore. Modern mothers are bombarded by advice from ecologists, breastfeeding advocates, behavioural specialists, even politicians. The pressure to be a perfect mother is overwhelming, and it’s scaring women away. And why wouldn’t it, when the expectation is that your child will become your god and you its humble servant?

In The Conflict Elisabeth Badinter, France’s foremost feminist thinker, questions why our ideas of motherhood have been skewed by unachievable expectations that compromise notions of self and womanhood. No matter which side of the debate you stand on, this bold and revelatory book is essential reading. Philosopher Elisabeth Badinter is recognised as a leading feminist writer, both in France and internationally, where her books have been translated into more than fifteen languages. Her publications include L’Amour en plus (Mother Love: Myth and Reality); X/Y, de l’identité masculine (XY: On Masculine Identity); L’un est l’autre; and Fausse route (Dead End Feminism).

Michelle Aung Thin


Winsome is just married and filled with anticipation. Her new husband is a stranger—one of the suitors chosen for her and the other mixed-race girls from the men who apply to the convent. But as the night train rattles towards her new home she sees possibility in this uncertain destiny. She knows she is headed for a new life in the metropolis. She does not know about Rangoon, this city cradled in the arms of rivers. That it is about to be torn apart in the struggle between its ancient owners and new masters. That it will seduce her, possess her senses and change utterly her notion of what kind of woman she can be. When she meets Jonathan—when the monsoon comes—she begins to find out. Michelle Aung Thin was born in Rangoon and brought up in Canada; she now lives in Melbourne. The Monsoon Bride, her first novel, was shortlisted for the Unpublished Manuscript Fellowship of the Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards, 2010.

Burma, 1930. At their final marriage lesson, when the priest had talked on and on, Desmond bent his head to hers and whispered, ‘Our world is newer, faster and better—you will see.’ She took his hand in hers then and squeezed it. His skin had a peppery, meaty sweetness, a smell that seemed to stick to her dress, her hair and skin. She named it ‘the scent of men’. Beside her, he snored gently, his face no more than an outline, rising and falling in the dim light. She decided that she liked the sound.



Lloyd Jones From the author of Mister Pip—winner of the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, the Kiriyama Prize for Fiction and the Montana Medal for Fiction, and shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.


A woman washes ashore in Sicily. She has come to find her son, taken from her when he was just days old by his father and stolen away to Berlin. Her story is told by those she meets on her desperate journey— people who helped her, people who exploited her—each with a different version of the quiet mysterious woman in the blue coat. Lloyd Jones was born in New Zealand in 1955. His books include the award-winning Mister Pip, The Book of Fame, Here at the End of the World We Learn to Dance and the short-story collection The Man in the Shed. He lives in Wellington.

Helen Hodgman Jill and her dad are happy enough after her mother dies. Theirs is a simple life in the outback, far from the big city where a coathanger is being built across a sparkling harbour. Until Jack arrives at their door one evening, and steps inside to find the skinny, wild-looking child sitting with her grim-faced father. It’s the start of all Jill’s problems. ‘Absence makes the heart grow fonder,’ threatens Jack, as he marches off to war. And he’s right, in a way—but this is no ordinary romance. Spanning the period from the Depression to the freewheeling ’60s, Helen Hodgman’s award-winning second book is a masterpiece, a twisted fairytale told with her characteristic dark wit. ‘Hodgman’s way with the Australian language makes Barry Humphries pale by comparison. Strange and mad as the story is, it’s sheer delight from beginning to end.’ Spectator ‘Deadpan comic talent. Hodgman has that certain something that makes this writing style and particular voice hers alone.’ Sydney Morning Herald ‘What distinguishes Jack and Jill, Helen Hodman’s second novel, is her tone of voice: it is unique, entirely her own, owing nothing, as far as I can discern, to other Australian novelists, yet at the same time distinctly Australian… There’s formidable talent here.’ Sunday Times ‘Hodgman is quite an experience, quite a writer.’ Guardian

Helen Hodgman is the author of the novels Blue Skies (1976; republished by Text, 2011), Jack and Jill (1978; winner of the Somerset Maugham Award, 1979), Broken Words (1988; winner of the Christina Stead Prize, 1989), Passing Remarks (1996), Waiting for Matindi (1998) and The Bad Policeman (2001).

Now, in a series of letters to her absent husband, Eva recounts the story of how Kevin came to be Kevin. Fearing that her own shortcomings may have shaped what her son has become, she confesses to a deep, long-standing ambivalence about both motherhood in general and Kevin in particular.

The adventures of a young woman whose principal interests are murder, ultra-violence and ABBA.

John Ajvide Lindqvist Translated from the Swedish by Marlaine Delargy

Lennart Cederström, embittered ex-pop singer, is foraging for mushrooms when he finds a baby left for dead in a plastic bag. He revives her and is utterly astonished by the sound of her crying: the child’s voice is a clear, haunting, perfectly pitched note. Lennart decides the girl will be his project. Raised in isolation, untainted by the dross and banality of the everyday, she will become the vehicle for a pure, exquisite music. He installs the baby in the basement and threatens to kill his downtrodden wife if she breathes a word. Meanwhile the child is growing up and developing a few ideas of her own. Only hers involve a hammer. A hammer, a very strong taste for violence and a strange ambition to appear on Swedish Idol. Imagine what will happen when she finds a friend who shares her interests.

Nancy Huston After a childhood marked by pain, Rena Greenblatt has found the strength to build a successful career as a photographer. Like the ultrasensitive infrared film she uses, Rena sees what others don’t see, and finds a form of love. By photographing men’s bodies, she hopes to glimpse their souls. Away from her lover, Aziz, stuck in Florence with her infuriating stepmother and her ageing, unwell father, Rena confronts not only the masterpieces of the Renaissance but the banal inconveniences of a family holiday. At the same time, she finds herself travelling into dark and passionate memories that will lead her to a series of disturbing revelations. With exceptional flair and talent, Nancy Huston explores the links between the intimate and the collective, between destruction and creation. In the spirit of her bestselling novel Fault Lines, Infrared is a story about how childhood, family, and our culture all have a direct impact on our sexuality. ‘An intense and sensual novel, in which unapologetic feminism never for a minute excludes the desire for men.’ France Soir


‘There is something eminently subversive in Nancy Huston’s latest novel. A 45-yearold woman dares to talk about her sexuality, her immense desire for men. But even more, Infrared is a staggering expression of the power of art as salvation.’ Voir

Nancy Huston was born in Canada and has lived in France since she was twenty. She writes in both French and English, translates her work herself, and is the author of numerous works of fiction and non-fiction, as well as plays, children’s books and screenplays. Her novel Fault Lines won the Prix Femina and was shortlisted for the Orange Prize.

Wayne Macauley Power through service, says Head Chef. It’s one of the first lessons taught at Cook School, where troubled youths learn to be master chefs by bowing to decadence and whim, by offering up a part of themselves on every plate. It’s a motto Zac takes to heart. A teenage boy with a difficult past, he throws himself into the world and work of haute cuisine. He has dreams of a future, of escaping the dead-end, no-hope lot of his fellow cooks. He wants to be the greatest chef the world has seen. He thinks he’s taken his first steps when he becomes House Cook for a wealthy family. Never mind that the family may seem less than appreciative. Or refined. Or deserving. Power through service. But as the facade crumbles and his promised future looks unlikely to eventuate, Zac the Cook is forced to reassess everything. Sweet turns sour and ends in bitter revenge. Blackly funny and deliciously satirical, The Cook feeds our hunger to know what goes on in the kitchen, while skewering our culture of food worship. PRAISE FOR WAYNE MACAULEY

The End of the Gods

A. S. Byatt From the author of the Booker Prize-winning Possession and The Children’s Book comes an extraordinary myth-inspired tale. In Ragnarok A. S. Byatt reinvents the finale of Norse mythology in all its intensity and glory. Also known as the Twilight of the Gods, it is the myth in which the gods Odin, Freya and Thor die and the sun and moon are swallowed by the wolf Fenrir—for it is only after such monstrous death and destruction that the world can begin anew. As German bombs rain down on wartime Britain, a young girl evacuated to the countryside struggles to make sense of her new wartime life. Then she is given a copy of Asgard and the Gods, a book of ancient Norse myths, and her inner and outer worlds are transformed. War, ecological catastrophe, reckless gods and the recognition of impermanence in the world are

just some of the threads that A. S. Byatt weaves into this most timely of books. Linguistically stunning and imaginatively abundant, it is a landmark work of fiction from one of the world’s great writers. ‘The kind of writer who makes you marvel at what she manages to put on the page.’ Glasgow Herald

A. S. Byatt’s novels include Possession, The Biographer’s Tale and most recently The Children’s Book, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. A distinguished critic as well as a writer of fiction, A. S. Byatt was appointed CBE in 1990 and DBE in 1999.

Adventures in the Pacific

Tim Flannery Twenty-five years ago, a young curator of mammals from the

Australian Museum in Sydney set out to research the fauna of the Pacific Islands. Starting with a survey of one of the most inaccessible islands in Melanesia—Woodlark, in the Trobriands Group—that young scientist found himself ghost-whispering, snake wrestling, Quadoi hunting and plunged waist-deep into a sludge of maggot-infested faeces in search of a small bat that turned out not to be earth-shatteringly interesting. With accounts of discovering, naming and sometimes eating new mammal species; being thwarted or aided by local customs; and historic scientific expeditions, Tim Flannery takes us on an enthralling journey through some of the most diverse and spectacular environments on Earth.

Humanity’s 100 Deadliest Achievements

Matthew White Which wars killed the most people? Was the twentieth century the most violent in history? Are religions, tyrants or ideologies responsible for the greatest bloodshed? In this remarkable and original book, ‘atrocitologist’ Matthew White assesses man’s inhumanity to man over several thousand years. From the Punic Wars between Rome and Carthage to the cataclysmic events of World War II, Atrocitology spans centuries and civilisations as it measures the hundred most violent episodes in history. Relying on statistical analysis rather than grand theories, White offers three big lessons: chaos is more deadly than tyranny, the world is much more disorganised than we realise, and more civilians than soldiers are killed in wars—in fact, the army is usually the safest place to be during wartime. Our understanding of history’s

worst atrocities is patchy and skewed. This book sets the record straight, charting those events with the largest man-made death tolls without fear or favour. ‘Compulsively readable…A major work… Thorough, unbiased, sophisticated, rigorous, authoritative, and, I hasten to add, tremendously entertaining… Outstanding.’ Steven Pinker, author of The Language Instinct and How the Mind Works

Matthew White has worked as a law librarian for twenty years. He began the online Historical Atlas of the 20th Century in 1997, and his database of atrocity statistics has become the atlas’s most popular and widely cited section. His research has been cited by scores of books and scholarly articles. He lives in Richmond, Virginia.

Vikki Wakefield Sometimes she just knows what’s in my head. I’m angry with her, but mostly with myself… Rule number one: I will not turn out like my mother. Mim knows what she wants, and where she wants to go. Anywhere but home—a dead suburb and a mother who won’t get off the couch. She’s set herself rules to live by, but she’s starting to break them. Over the nine days before her seventeenth birthday, Mim’s life turns upside down. In the end, the same things look entirely different. ‘This is one of the most memorable YA books I’ve ever read. The voice is original, the characters are real, the language is startling and beautiful. And the plot keeps you trapped till the dangerous but hopeful end.’ Cath Crowley, author of Graffiti Moon HHHHH ‘I read this novel in one gulp, loving every moment of the narrator’s voice… Though Mim makes mistakes, and plenty of them, this novel contains none. All I Ever Wanted is a brilliant coming-of-age novel for teens.’ Bookseller+Publisher

‘Underlying this gorgeous writing is a page-turning plot driven by richly developed, wonderfully diverse characters…All I Ever Wanted is a sparkling journey into hope. I loved this book.’ Paul Griffin, author of Ten Mile River


Vikki Wakefield lives in Adelaide. She writes late at night and if she can’t read, she can’t breathe. All I Ever Wanted is her first novel.

Jane Higgins We rode to war in a taxi-cab. Dash found it in Fettlers Lane, near the old greengrocer. We’d gone there looking for food. We were fierce hungry and would have taken anything on offer but the hostiles had got there first. The City is divided. The bridges are gated. Southside, the hostiles live in squalor and desperation, waiting for a chance to overrun Cityside. Nik is destined for a great career with the Internal Security and Intelligence Services, the brains behind the war. But when ISIS comes recruiting, he’s not chosen. There must be an explanation, but no one will talk about it. Then the school is bombed and the hostiles take the bridges. Buildings are burning, kids are dead, and the hostiles have kidnapped Sol. Now ISIS is hunting for Nik. But Nik is on the run, with Sol’s sister Fyffe. Across the bridge. Looking for Sol. And finding answers to questions he’d never even thought to ask. The Bridge is a gritty adventure set in a future world where fear of outsiders pervades everything. It’s a compelling novel about friendship, identity and courage from an exciting new voice.

‘The Bridge makes The Hunger Games look like a picnic.’ James Phelan


Jane Higgins was born in New Zealand. She has degrees in mathematics and anthropology, and has worked on many human rights campaigns. She is a senior research fellow at Lincoln University and her specialty is youth studies. Jane lives in Christchurch with her husband. The Bridge is her first novel.

Maile Meloy


Illustrations by Ian Schoenherr A mysterious apothecary. A magic book. A missing scientist. An impossible plan. It’s 1952 and the Scott family has moved from Los Angeles to London. Janie feels uncomfortable in her new school, until the local apothecary promises her a remedy for homesickness. But the real cure is meeting the apothecary’s son Benjamin, a curiously defiant boy who dreams of becoming a spy. Benjamin’s father is no ordinary apothecary, and when he’s kidnapped, Benjamin and Janie find themselves entrusted with his sacred book, the Pharmacopoeia. And Russian spies are intent on getting their hands on it. What secrets does the book contain? Who is the Chinese chemist Jin Lo? And can they trust a skinny pickpocket called Pip to help them? Discovering transformative elixirs they never imagined could exist, Janie and Benjamin embark on a dangerous quest to save the apothecary and prevent an impending nuclear disaster. The Apothecary sparkles with life and possibility. This is a story that will delight kids and return not-so-young readers to the magic of childhood. ‘Inventive, smart and fun, an absolute delight.’ Rebecca Stead ‘A wise and astonishing conjurer of convincing realities.’ New Yorker ‘A master of her craft.’ Weekend Australian

Maile Meloy is the award-winning author of the short-story collections Both Ways Is the Only Way I Want It and Half in Love, and the novels Liars and Saints and A Family Daughter. Maile lives in Los Angeles. The Apothecary is her first novel for young readers.

Paul Griffin The door opens, and this guy comes in, kind of tall, clean-cut, definitely nice-looking, but there’s something wrong with him. He strikes me as both wounded and perhaps a little dangerous. And so it began. Céce and Mack never expected to fall in love. She’s a sensitive A-student; he’s a high school dropout. But soon they’re spending all their time together, bonding over a rescued dog, telling their darkest secrets. Everything is perfect. Until. Until. Mack loses control and makes a horrible mistake, and suddenly everything is impossible. Céce and Mack struggle to answer the question: how do you survive when the person you love can’t stay? Award-winning author Paul Griffin has written a story of first love that is both heartbreaking and uplifting, filled with characters, both dog and human, that will change the way you look at the world. PRAISE FOR TEN MILE RIVER ‘Griffin’s concise prose, humour and gritty realism make Ten Mile River a memorable read.’ Sydney Morning Herald ‘A striking debut…the setting [is] authentic, the characters memorable and their struggles played out with a complexity that respects the audience’s intelligence.’ Publishers Weekly


‘This book’s got balls and beauty in equal measure.’ Phillip Gwynne

When he’s not writing, Paul Griffin works as a teacher, mostly with at-risk kids in high schools and juvenile detention centres throughout New York City, where he lives with his wife and his pit bull dogs. Ten Mile River is also published by Text. FICTION PB • EBOOK ISBN 9781921758713 • 224 pp • $19.95 rights held: ANZ other rights: Penguin USA

Richard Newsome The police have finally caught the evil murderer Sir Mason Green. The third casket and whatever treasure it contains can remain a secret just as the Fraternity wished. Gerald can relax and enjoy his billions. Or can he? At his trial, Green drops dead in the dock. Forensics show he was poisoned by a dart—and Gerald’s DNA is on the blowgun. Then a mysterious cat woman steals the ruby, the key to the third casket. A mysterious woman with a store of poison darts, who happens to be Sir Mason Green’s niece, Charlotte. Now Gerald is on the run, with Ruby and Sam, wanted for murder. Can they beat Charlotte to the ruby casket and prove that she killed Green? It’s a quest that takes them to caverns beneath the island castle of Mont Saint-Michel in France, locked rooms in the Vatican and the ancient hidden city of Delphi in Greece to discover the secret of the three caskets and the great power they hold.
