                    After a childhood spent in the foster care system, Victoria Jones’ only connection to the world is through flowers and their
                    meanings. Now eighteen, Victoria has nowhere to go, and sleeps in a public park, where she plants a small garden of her own.
                    When her talent is discovered by a local florist, she discovers her gift for helping others through the flowers she chooses for
                    them. But it takes meeting a mysterious vendor at the flower market for her to realise what’s been missing in her own life, and
                    as she starts to fall for him, she must decide whether it’s worth risking everything for a second chance at happiness.

Jeffrey Eugenides RRP $29.99
Dutiful English major, Madeleine Hanna, enrolls in Semiotics to find out why everyone but her reads Derrida. She meets and
falls in love with charismatic loner and college Darwinist, Leonard Bankhead, but at the same time her old ‘friend’ Mitchell
Grammaticus reappears, obsessed with the idea that she is destined to be his wife. The triangle at the heart of this story is
both age-old and completely fresh and surprising. Jeffrey Eugenides explores the original energies of the novel as an art form
while creating a story so contemporary that it reads like an intimate journal of our own lives.

                    The Lake tells the tale of a young woman who moves to Tokyo after the death of her mother, hoping to get over her grief.
                    She finds herself spending too much time staring out her window and she realises she’s gotten used to seeing a young man
                    across the street staring out his window, too. They eventually embark on a hesitant romance, until she learns that he has been
                    the victim of some form of childhood trauma. Visiting two of his friends who live a monastic life beside a beautiful lake, she
                    begins to piece together a series of clues that lead her to suspect his experience may have had something to do with a bizarre
                    religious cult...

Charlotte Wood RRP $29.99
Acclaimed novelist Charlotte Wood takes a character from her bestselling book The Children and turns her unflinching
gaze on him and his world in Animal People. Set in Sydney over a single day, Animal People traces a watershed day in the
life of Stephen, aimless, unhappy, unfulfilled – and without a clue as to how to make his life better. His dead-end job, his
demanding family, his oppressive feelings for Fiona and the pitiless city itself ... the great weight of it all threatens to come
crashing down on him. The day will bring untold surprises and disasters, but will also show him – perhaps too late – that only
love can set him free.

Alice Hoffman RRP $29.99
The lives of four bold and remarkable women intersect in the year 70AD, in the desperate days of the siege of Masada. All
are dovekeepers, and all are keepers of secrets – about who they are, where they come from, who fathered them, and whom
they love. There is Yael, the assassin’s daughter whose heartbreak leads to her true path in the ruins of the desert; Revka,
the baker’s wife who loses her dearest treasure on earth and yet finds the strength to protect her family; Aziza, the warrior’s
beloved who leads a secret life not even those closest to her could imagine; and Marit, beautiful witch of Moab, a woman as
loyal as she is dangerous.

                   Alex Miller RRP $39.99
                   Autumn Laing seduces Pat Donlon with her lust for life and art. In doing so she not only compromises the trusting love she
                   has with her husband, Arthur, she also steals the future from Pat’s young and beautiful wife, Edith, and their unborn child.
                   Fifty-three years later, 85-year-old Autumn is shocked to find within herself a powerful need for redemption. As she begins to
                   tell her story, she writes, ‘They are all dead and I am old and skeleton-gaunt. This is where it began...’. This energetic, funny and
                   wise novel peels back the layers of storytelling and asks what truth has to do with it. Autumn Laing is an unflinchingly intimate
                   portrait of a woman and her time.

Nineteenth-century Europe abounds with the ghastly and the mysterious. Conspiracies rule history. Jesuits plot against           $26.36

Freemasons. Italian republicans strangle priests with their own intestines. French criminals plan bombings by day and
celebrate black masses at night. Every nation has its own secret service, perpetrating forgeries, plots, and massacres.
But what if, behind all of these conspiracies both real and imagined, lay one lone man? What if that evil genius created
the most infamous document of all? Eco takes his readers on an unforgettable journey through the underbelly of world-
shattering events.

                  Andrey Kurkov RRP $32.95
                  After waking to find his boots and overcoat damp on several mornings in a row, Semyon realises his excursions are a nightly
                  occurrence. Concerned for his own safety and for the security of his marriage, he asks his friend and business partner Volodka
                  to follow him on his nocturnal wanderings. As the adventure unfurls, an unemployed sniffer-dog handler makes a dangerous
                  discovery, a single mother provides breast milk for an unusual recipient, and a vengeful cat is on the loose. All in all, there are
                  some very strange goings-on in Kiev.

                  DUE laTE novEMBEr
                  Published in its entirety for the first time, The Sea is My Brother was inspired by Kerouac’s experiences as a Merchant Marine
                  on the S.S. Dorchester in the late summer of 1942 during which he kept a journal detailing the gritty daily routine of life at sea
                  and the character traits of his fellow shipmates. The journals were woven into a short novel soon after he disembarked and
                  follows the fortunes of Wesley Martin, a man who Kerouac said ‘loved the sea with a strange, lonely love; the sea is his brother
                  and sentences. He goes down.’

David Almond RRP $29.99
Billy Dean is a secret child, growing up in the dark heart of Blinkbonny. His world is just a bed, some pictures of the holy
island and a single locked door, but his father fills his dreams with mysterious tales and dreadful warnings. When his father
disappears, Billy’s mum brings him out into the world, and he learns the dreadful truth of what happened in Blinkbonny on the
day he was born. Gradually he finds he has the gift of helping to rebuild what has been broken. But there is one figure who is
beyond healing, who comes looking for Billy himself and is determined on a kind of reckoning.

                   Lamont Williams is a paroled felon looking to turn his life around. Adam Zignelik is a struggling professor, paralysed by looming
                   failure, his life falling apart around him. He discovers a cache of recordings of previously unheard voices reaching out from a
                   horrific past, voices that can both save his career and bring him back to the woman he loves. At the same time, Lamont forges
                   an unlikely friendship with a dying man, who, having lived through those horrors, has a crucially important story to tell and to
                   preserve. The worlds surrounding these two men, swirl in and out of history as the forces of the Holocaust, the American civil
                   rights movement, Chicago unions, and New York City racial politics combine in a thrilling cross- generational literary symphony.

In 1886, a mysterious travelling circus becomes an international sensation. Open only at night, constructed entirely in black
and white, the Cirque des Rêves delights all who wander its circular paths and warm themselves at its bonfire. Behind the
scenes a dangerous game is being played out by two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who, at the behest of their masters,
are forced to test the very limits of the imagination – and of love. A feast for the senses, a fin-de-siècle fantasia of magic and
mischief, and the most original love story since The Time Traveler’s Wife, The Night Circus is an extraordinary blend of fantasy
and reality.

At long last, Lady Sybil has lured her husband, Sam Vimes, on a well-deserved holiday away from the crime and grime of Ankh-

policeman will find a crime anywhere if he decides to look hard enough, and it’s not long before a body is discovered…

                   In this wry take on the post-apocalyptic horror novel, a plague has sorted humanity into two types: the uninfected and
                   the infected. Mark Spitz is a member of one of the civilian teams working in lower Manhattan, tasked with clearing out
                   ‘malfunctioning’ stragglers, who exist in a catatonic state, transfixed by their former lives. Alternating between flashbacks
                   of Spitz’s desperate fight for survival during the worst of the outbreak and his present narrative, the novel unfolds over three
                   surreal days, as it depicts the mundane mission of straggler removal, the rigours of Post-Apocalyptic Stress Disorder, and the
                   impossible job of coming to grips with the fallen world.

                   Philip Kerr RRP $24.99
                   Philip Kerr’s historical thrillers featuring private detective Bernie Gunther forms a body of work comparable to two
                   masters of the genre, Len Deighton and John le Carre. Prague Fatale is Bernie Gunther’s eighth outing. Set in Prague in
                   1942, Bernie Gunther returns from the horrors of the Eastern Front to find his home city of Berlin changed, and changed for
                   the worse. Now back at his old desk on Homicide, Bernie is obliged to drop everything when his old boss orders him to Prague
                   to spend a weekend at his country house. The weekend turns sour when a body is found in a room that was locked from the
                   inside and the spotlight falls on Bernie to show off his investigative skills and solve this seemingly impossible mystery.

John Ajvide Lindqvist RRP $32.95
When embittered ex-pop-star Lennart Cederström finds a baby left for dead in a plastic bag, he is uncertain what to do –
until he hears her cry. The child’s voice is a clear, haunting, perfectly pitched note. Lennart decides the girl will be his project
and raises her in isolation – she will become the vehicle for a pure, exquisite music. But his delinquent son, Jerry, has other
ideas for the infant prodigy, involving talent shows, celebrity and enormous success. Meanwhile the child is growing up and
developing a few ideas of her own. Only hers involve a hammer and a very strong taste for violence and a strange ambition to
appear on Swedish Idol…

Paul Brannigan RRP $35.00
This Is a Call, the first in-depth, definitive biography of Dave Grohl, tells the epic story of a singular career that includes Nirvana,
Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, and Them Crooked Vultures. Based on ten years of original, exclusive interviews with
the man himself and conversations with a legion of musical associates, this is Grohl’s story. He speaks candidly and honestly
about Kurt Cobain, the arguments that almost tore Nirvana apart, the feuds that threatened to derail the Foo Fighters’s global
success and the dark days that almost caused him to quit music for good.

                   Joshua Cody, a brilliant young composer, was about to receive his PhD when he was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer.
                   Facing a bone-marrow transplant and full radiation, he charts his struggle: the fury, the tendency to self-destruction, and the
                   ruthless grasping for life and sensation; the encounter with a strange woman on Canal Street that leads to sex at his apartment;
                   the detailed morphine fantasy complete with a bride called Valentina while, in reality, hospital staff are pinning him to his
                   bed. [sic] is a cross between Susan Sontag’s Illness as Metaphor and Jay McInerny’s Bright Lights, Big City: a mesmerising,
                   hallucinatory glimpse into a young man’s battle against disease and a celebration of art, language, music, and life.

publishing by virtue of its scale and range of subjects, and that all the speeches are the work of one eye and one mind:
former Prime Minister Paul Keating. Each speech has been conceptualised, contextualised and crafted by Paul Keating.
For those interested in matters that go to the future of Australia and the world, After Words presents, unmediated, panoply
of issues which the policy mind and writing style of Paul Keating has sculpted into a recognisable landscape.

                   one of its most important untold tales.

MaD DoG: WIllIaM cyrIl MoxlEy anD ThE MoorEBank kIllInGs
Peter Corris RRP $29.95
William Cyril Moxley was hanged at Sydney’s Long Bay Gaol in 1932. His crime was the brutal rape and murder of 21-year-old
Dorothy Ruth Denzel and the vicious beating and killing of her boyfriend, Frank Barnby Wilkinson. How did this World War I
army deserter, small-time thief, conman and police informer come to be the infamous murderer ‘Mad Dog’ Moxley? Was it
simply a robbery gone wrong? Did his blackouts and migraines stem from a head injury as he claimed, or was he the monstrous
sociopath described by the prosecution lawyers and the tabloids? Why did he leave such an obvious trail? Would he be found
guilty today? Corris reconstructs the facts surrounding the case and presents a fascinating look at Depression-era Sydney.

of World War II, Atrocitology spans centuries and civilisations as it measures the hundred most violent episodes in history.

Nicholas Rankin RRP $39.99
This is the true story of Ian Fleming’s Second World War unit, known as ‘30 Assault Unit’, the real-life inspiration for James
Bond. They were a unit of authorised looters, men who would go in hard with the front-line troops and steal enemy intelligence.
In this gripping and highly enjoyable book, Nicholas Rankin, puts 30 Assault Unit’s fascinating story in a strategic and
intelligence context. He also argues that Ian Fleming’s Second World War service was one of the most significant periods
of his life – without this, the most popular spy fiction of the twentieth century would not have been written.

                   tactical milestones passed along the way and explains how the Australian Imperial Force and the New Zealand Expeditionary
                   Force evolved to meet the war‘s changing demands.

The atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki instantly killed more than 100,000 people. Many hundreds of
thousands more succumbed to their horrific injuries later, or slowly perished of radiation-related sickness. Yet the bombs were
“our least abhorrent choice”, American leaders claimed at the time – and still today most people believe they ended the Pacific
War. Ham describes the political manoeuvring and the scientific race to build the new atomic weapon. He also gives powerful
witness to its destruction through the eyes of eighty survivors, reminding us that these two cities were full of ordinary people
who suddenly, out of a clear blue summer′s sky, felt the sun fall on their heads.

                  This book takes a dramatically original approach to the history of humanity, using objects which previous civilisations have
                  left behind them, often accidentally, as prisms through which we can explore past worlds and the lives of the men and women
                  who lived in them. The book’s range is enormous. It begins with one of the earliest surviving objects made by human hands,
                  a chopping tool from the Olduvai gorge in Africa, and ends with an object from the 21st century which represents the world
                  we live in today. An intellectual and visual feast, it is one of the most engrossing and unusual history books published in years.

                   the past to the unknown digital future, will we no longer have need for a written language and instead communicate in pictures
                   and symbols? With (heart) the first graphic to enter the OED, are we already well on our way? In a round-the-world trip of a
                   lifetime, discover all this and more as J. P. Davidson travels across our gloriously, endlessly intriguing multi-lingual Planet Word.

                   Nicholas Wapshott RRP $35.00
                   Can government fix a broken economy? Two great economists disagreed eighty years ago, and their debate dominates
                   politics to this day. As the stock-market crash of 1929 plunged the world into turmoil, two men emerged with competing
                   claims about how to restore balance to economies gone awry. John Maynard Keynes, the mercurial Cambridge economist,
                   believed that government had a duty to spend when others would not. Friedrich Hayek, a little-known Austrian economics
                   professor, considered attempts to intervene both pointless and potentially dangerous. Author Nicholas Wapshott unearths the
                   contemporary relevance of Keynes and Hayek.

                   In any conflict, the First Alternative is my way, and the Second Alternative is your way. The fight always boils down to a
                   question of whose way is better. This book presents a new and practical, but incredibly effective and eye-opening, way
                   to reach resolution through using the ‘Third Alternative’. The 3rd Alternative moves beyond your way or my way to a higher
                   and better way – one that allows both parties to emerge from debate or even heated conflict in a far better place than either
                   had envisioned.



BooMEranG: ThE MElTDoWn ToUr
Michael Lewis RRP $39.95
Boomerang is a tragi-comic romp across Europe, in which Lewis gives full vent to his storytelling genius. The cheap credit that
rolled across the planet between 2002 and 2008 was more than a simple financial phenomenon: it was temptation, offering
entire societies the chance to reveal aspects of their characters they could not normally afford to indulge. Lewis’s investigation
of bubbles across Europe is brilliantly, sadly hilarious. He also turns a merciless eye on America: on California, the epicentre of
world consumption, where we see that a final reckoning awaits the most avaricious of nations too.

                      Ferran Adria RRP $39.95
                      Every day at 5.20pm the staff at elBulli gather together for a three-course ‘family meal’, an important moment of the day,
                      when the team can pause, take stock and prepare themselves for the pressures of the evening service. The family meal is
                      very important to Ferran, so much so that he prepares the daily menus and recipes for it a whole year in advance. Now, for
                      the first time, Ferran is making his recipes available to all home cooks. He shows how to prepare tasty, everyday food with
                      31 nutritionally balanced daily menus, each one consisting of three courses, with a total of 93 recipes.

hEsTon BlUMEnThal aT hoME
Heston Blumenthal $65.00
Heston Blumenthal at Home is an ingeniously designed book for cooks who want to know how food works, and who are
excited about adopting an unconventional approach that will revolutionize the experience of cooking at home. The first part
of the book maps the new techniques in fifteen sections, including: taste and flavor; stocks and infusing; brining, curing,
marinating, and macerating; and sections on proper care of meat, fish, pasta, and many other dishes. In the second part,
there are 150 specially chosen recipes. Here, at last, is the secret to irrefutably perfect fish and chips, as well as a few more
unconventional dishes such as salmon with licorice, and crab lasagna.

                        The first volume of Vitamin P, published in 2002, inaugurated a vibrant period for painting. Since its publication, a whole
                        new generation of painters has emerged, some inspired by the artists who appeared in that book, others taking cues from
                        new sources. Vitamin P2 introduces this new wave of painters to the world. The vast medium of painting continues to be
                        a central pillar of artistic practice, and Vitamin P2 presents the outstanding artists who are currently engaging with and
                        pushing the boundaries of the medium.

variety of applications and reclaims its prominence in the pantheon of modern art history. Beautifully produced to appeal to a

                    Pilgrimage took Annie Leibovitz to places that she could explore with no agenda. She wasn’t on assignment. She chose the
                    subjects simply because they meant something to her. Leibovitz started with a small digital camera at the historical houses of
                    Emily Dickinson and Virginia Woolf, but after a trip to Niagara Falls with her three young children, she started making lists and
                    her work became more ambitious. She began to use more sophisticated cameras and a tripod and to travel with an assistant,
                    but the project remained personal. Pilgrimage is a restorative project for Leibovitz, and the arc of the narrative is her own.

                       Stylist, globetrotter and treasure hunter Sibella Court, travelled to Syria, Mexico, Italy, India and Japan to be inspired by
                       everything from door knobs and street signs to roadside shrines and household brooms – things that most of us wouldn’t
                       even notice. In Nomad, the ideas, photographs and mementos she collected are used to inspire room settings, illustrating
                       simple, practical and surprising ways to be reminded of your travel experiences. Sibella’s approach is not about recreating
                       a whole look but about transforming and rethinking to make interior spaces that reflect your personality and experiences.
                       Nomad will help open your eyes to what’s around you and fuel your imagination long after the suitcase is unpacked.

                    METaMaUs
                    Art Spiegelman RRP $45.00
                    In the pages of MetaMaus, Art Spiegelman re-enters the Pulitzer prize-winning Maus, the modern classic that has altered how
                    we see literature, comics, and the Holocaust ever since it was first published twenty-five years ago. He probes the questions
                    that Maus most often evokes – Why the Holocaust? Why mice? Why comics? – and gives us a new and essential work about
                    the creative process. MetaMaus includes a bonus DVD that provides a digitized reference copy of The Complete Maus linked
                    to a deep archive of audio interviews with his survivor father, historical documents, and a wealth of Spiegelman’s private
                    notebooks and sketches.


sUpErGoDs
Grant Morrison RRP $45.00
Grant Morrison charts the history of the superheroes to their modern, multiplex incarnations. From Batman to the Flash to
Dr Manhattan, Supergods looks at every key character, but also takes in unique national strips, and the strange spin-offs and
forgotten curios that litter the outer reaches of this weird universe. In doing so, Morrison explores the relationship between our
world and that of the superheroes, showing how each reinvention of a character by a new creative team has held up a mirror to
real-world preoccupations, latent or otherwise. Written in a conversational style, and full of Morrison’s trademark wit, humour
and dynamic storytelling, Supergods unlocks one of the most exciting and least explored strands of popular culture.

                                                                                                          Books kInokUnIya                      27

                   Discovered in the Archives of The Jim Henson Company, A Tale of Sand is an original graphic novel adaptation of an
                   unproduced, feature-length screenplay written by Jim Henson and his frequent writing partner, Jerry Juhl. It follows scruffy
                   everyman, Mac, who wakes up in an unfamiliar town, and is chased across the desert of the American Southwest by all
                   manners of man and beast of unimaginable proportions. Produced with the complete blessing of Henson co-CEO Lisa Henson,
                   A Tale of Sand will allow Henson fans to recognize some of the inspirations and set pieces that appeared in later Henson
                   Company productions.



GoDspEED: ThE kUrT coBaIn GraphIc
Barnaby Legg and Jim McCarthy RRP $19.99
GodSpeed: The Kurt Cobain Graphic tells Cobain’s story in the form of a totally unique graphic novel. Writers Barnaby Legg
and Jim McCarthy have constructed their story using biographical fact interwoven with references to the singers tortured self-
image. The vibrant art by Flameboy captures both the subjective dreamscape and the objective reality that form the heart of
this examination of a tragic musical legend. Much more than a biography, GodSpeed is unlike anything you have read about
Kurt Cobain before. Going beyond the facts it transmutes an extraordinary life into an equally extraordinary work of art.

                    FEynMan
                    Jim Ottaviani and Leland Myrick $34.95
                    This substantial graphic novel biography presents the larger-than-life exploits of Nobel-winning quantum physicist,
                    adventurer, musician, world-class raconteur, and one of the greatest minds of the twentieth century: Richard Feynman.
                    Written by non-fiction comics mainstay Jim Ottaviani and brilliantly illustrated by Leland Myrick, Feynman tells the story
                    of the great man’s life from his childhood in Long Island to his work on the Manhattan Project and the Challenger disaster.
                    Ottaviani tackles the bad with the good, leaving the reader delighted by Feynman’s exuberant life and staggered at the loss
                    humanity suffered with his death.



ThE DEaTh-ray
Daniel Clowes $35.00
Teen outcast Andy is an orphaned nobody with only one friend, the obnoxious but loyal Louie. They roam school halls and city
streets, invisible to everyone but bullies and tormentors, until the glorious day when Andy takes his first puff on a cigarette.
That night he wakes, heart pounding, soaked in sweat, and finds himself suddenly overcome with the peculiar notion that he
can do anything. The Death-Ray utilises the classic staples of the superhero genre and reconfigures them in a story that is
anything but morally simplistic. Daniel Clowes delivers a contemporary meditation on the darkness of the human psyche.

Sara Varon $19.95
Cupcake’s life is pretty good. He’s got his bakery, and his band, and his best friend, Eggplant. His days are full of cooking,
socialising, and playing music. But lately, Cupcake has been struggling in the kitchen. He’s sure the solution to all his
problems is out there somewhere. But maybe that solution is hiding closer to home. Sara Varon returns with an ageless tale
as dreamy and evocative as her break-out hit graphic novel Robot Dreams. At once deeply metaphorical and hilariously literal,
Bake Sale is a story for anyone who’s ever looked for an easy answer to life’s intractable difficulties. It’s also a cookbook:
Varon includes seven delicious recipes, from classic cupcakes to sugared flower petals to marzipan.

                  Barry Lyga and Colleen Doran $22.95
                  Ryoko, a manga character from a manga world, falls through the Rip into the ‘real’ world – the western world – and tries to
                  survive as the ultimate outsider at a typical American high school. Barry Lyga writes a metafictive masterpiece as manga meets
                  traditional Western comic book style, while Colleen Doran combines manga techniques and conventions with Western comic
                  book storytelling to create a unique seamless – though not Ripless – comic hybrid that is by turns hilarious and heartbreaking.

                                              Haruki Murakami RRP $39.95
                                              The year is 1984 and the city is Tokyo.
                                              a young woman named aomame follows a taxi driver’s enigmatic suggestion and begins to
                                              notice puzzling discrepancies in the world around her. she has entered, she realizes, a parallel
                                              existence, which she calls 1q84 –“q is for ‘question mark.’ a world that bears a question.”
                                              Meanwhile, an aspiring writer named Tengo takes on a suspect ghostwriting project. he becomes
                                              so wrapped up with the work and its unusual author that, soon, his previously placid life begins
                                              to come unraveled.
                                              aomame and Tengo’s stories influence one another, at times by accident and at times
                                              intentionally, as the two come closer and closer to intertwining.
                                              a love story, a mystery, a fantasy, a novel of self-discovery, a dystopia to rival George orwell’s –
                                              1Q84 is haruki Murakami’s most ambitious undertaking yet.
