ManBooker WinnerThe 2018 Man Booker Prize Winner has been announced and we are proud to represent to you Milkman by Anna Burns:

 

Milkman by Anna Burns (Faber & Faber) | PB | 9780571338757

 

In this unnamed city, to be interesting is dangerous. Middle sister, our protagonist, is busy attempting to keep her mother from discovering her maybe-boyfriend and to keep everyone in the dark about her encounter with Milkman. But when first brother-in-law sniffs out her struggle, and rumours start to swell, middle sister becomes ‘interesting’. The last thing she ever wanted to be. To be interesting is to be noticed and to be noticed is dangerous… Milkman is a tale of gossip and hearsay, silence and deliberate deafness. It is the story of inaction with enormous consequences.

The-Last-HurrahIn The Last Hurrah, Graham Viney has written a fascinating account of a pivotal moment in South African history. In vivid prose he describes the background to the Royal Tour and its progress across the country in the specially commissioned white train. More than this, Viney provides interesting analysis of the politics of the time and the society, fractious as ever, which welcomed King George VI and Queen Elizabeth and their two daughters, Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret.

 

The tour was a show of Empire solidarity and a recognition of South Africa’s role and contribution to the Allied cause during World War II, and more specifically of Prime Minister Jan Smuts.

Despite controversy, wherever the tour took the Royal Family, South Africans of all races turned out in their thousands to cheer and welcome them. But one year later, in 1948, Smuts’ government was defeated in a general election and the Nationalists under D.F. Malan came to power setting South Africa inexorably on the path to Republic. The tour had truly been British South Africa’s last hurrah.

 

The Last Hurrah draws on sources from far and wide, including the Royal Archive at Windsor, and a selection of never-before published photographs of the royal family on tour.

Lethal-WhiteI seen a kid killed . . . He strangled it, up by the horse.'

 

When Billy, a troubled young man, comes to private eye Cormoran Strike's office to ask for his help investigating a crime he thinks he witnessed as a child, Strike is left deeply unsettled. While Billy is obviously mentally distressed, and cannot remember many concrete details, there is something sincere about him and his story. But before Strike can question him further, Billy bolts from his office in a panic.

 

Trying to get to the bottom of Billy's story, Strike and Robin Ellacott - once his assistant, now a partner in the agency - set off on a twisting trail that leads them through the backstreets of London, into a secretive inner sanctum within Parliament, and to a beautiful but sinister manor house deep in the countryside.

 

And during this labyrinthine investigation, Strike's own life is far from straightforward: his newfound fame as a private eye means he can no longer operate behind the scenes as he once did. Plus, his relationship with his former assistant is more fraught than it ever has been - Robin is now invaluable to Strike in the business, but their personal relationship is much, much more tricky than that...

 

The most epic Robert Galbraith novel yet, Lethal White is both a gripping mystery and a page-turning next instalment in the ongoing story of Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott.

Almost overnight, bank accounts are frozen, passports are taken away and seventy million women lose their jobs. Even more terrifyingly, young girls are no longer taught to read or write.

A-Spark-of-Light HPA powerful and provocative new novel about ordinary lives intersecting during a moment of heart-stopping crisis.

 

The masterful new novel from the Number One bestselling author of Small Great Things.

 

The Center for women's reproductive health offers a last chance at hope - but nobody ends up there by choice.

 

Its very existence is controversial, and to the demonstrators who barricade the building every day, the service it offers is no different from legalised murder.

 

Now life and death decisions are being made horrifyingly real: a lone protester with a gun has taken the staff, patients and visitors hostage.

 

Starting at the tensest moment in the negotiations for their release, A Spark of Light unravels backwards, revealing hour by urgent hour what brought each of these people - the gunman, the negotiator, the doctors, nurses and women who have come to them for treatment - to this point.

 

And certainties unwind as truths and secrets are peeled away, revealing the complexity of balancing the right to life with the right to choose.
