    Somewhere on the timeline, the war ends, while somewhere else, a new age begins - the one we call now. The shift does not happen overnight, from one day to the next; instead, the world vibrates for a number of years. People try to find their way to homes that are no longer there. People run from their deeds, and most of them get away. Among the millions in flight across Europe looking for a new home in 1947 are Elizabeth Asbrink's parents. In 1947, production begins of the Kalashnikov, Christian Dior creates the New Look, Simone de Beauvoir writes The Second Sex, the first computer bug is discovered, the CIA is set up, Hassan Al-Banna draws up the plan that remains the goal of jihadists to this day, and a UN committee is given four months to find a solution to the problem of Palestine. In 1947, Asbrink chronicles the creation of the world we now inhabit, as the forces that will go on to govern all our lives during the next 70 years first make themselves known.

    An extraordinary book about equality founded on 200 original and diverse interviews with women from around the world

    You can’t empower women without listening to their stories – Gloria Steinem

    Famous and unknown, celebrated and marginalised, rich and poor, black and white, leaders, victims, survivors, heroes, saints and sinners. Women who will educate and inspire us, teach us empathy, and bring positive change in a time when so many women and girls are still fighting for basic freedom and equality.

    Founded on original interviews and accompanying photographic portraits, this landmark book is the realisation of an epic global journey to find two hundred women with diverse backgrounds, and ask them what really matters to them.

    All two hundred women were photographed against the same background and asked the same five questions. Their answers reveal truth, wisdom, and inspiring stories of success and courage, love and pain, redemption and generosity. From well-known activists, artists and innovators to everyday women whose lives are no less exceptional, each woman shares her unique replies to questions that reveal a human being's deepest motivation, happiness, sadness and hope.

    Each interview is accompanied by a photographic portrait from award-winning photographer Kieran E. Scott, resulting in a volume that is complelling in both world and image - and global in its scope and resonance. With responses that range from uplifting to heartbreaking, these women offer gifts of empowerment and strenth, inviting us to bring positive change at a time when so many people are fighting for basic feedom and equality. It's a book that confirms what we already know - there are no ordinary women.

    A percentage of proceeds will be distributed to organisations primarily devoted to protecting and advancing the rights of women.

    The methodical but troubled Chief Inspector Georges Gorski visits the wife of a lawyer killed in a road accident, the accident on the A35. The case is unremarkable, the visit routine.

    Mme Barthelme - alluring and apparently unmoved by the news - has a single question- where was her husband on the night of the accident? The answer might change nothing, but it could change everything. And Gorski sets a course for what can only be a painful truth.

    But the dead man's reticent son is also looking for answers. And his search will have far more devastating consequences.

    The Accident on the A35 is the spellbinding follow-up to Graeme Macrae Burnet's debut noir novel The Disappearance of Adole Bedeau.

    In the city, strange things happen. People disappear, trees sprout overnight. But no one believes in magic. No, to believe in magic would be disloyal...

    The devious Lord Rump and his granddaughter, Duckling, need a disposable boy, and Pummel, a farm boy looking for work in the city, fits the bill perfectly. Duckling is happy to tangle him in her grandpa's web, as long as Grandpa keeps his promise - that this is his very last Scheme.

    Lord Rump's machinations take both children into the Strong-hold of Berren - where time has stopped and no one can leave - and before long they are entwined in a plot to kill the heir to the Faithful Throne.

    If they want to protect the Young Margrave, and save themselves from an awful death, Duckling and Pummel must learn to use the magic that no one else believes in.

    Author: MILNE CHRISTINE
    Format: TRADE PAPER COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    An Activist Life is the story of an apparently ordinary woman - a high-school English teacher from northwest Tasmania - who became a fiery environmental warrior, pitted against some of the most powerful business and political forces in the country.

    In it, Christine Milne tells her story through the objects that have symbolic meaning in both her personal and political life, from the butter pats in her kitchen that represent her journey from farm girl at Wesley Vale to environmental and human rights activist at the national and global level, to the Pride t-shirt she wore walking in Mardi Gras next to her son, after years of fighting for the legal reform of gay rights in Tasmania. She describes how politics actually works- the deals, the promises kept and broken, the horse-trading and treachery involved in some of the most controversial and difficult issues of our time, including the attempts to forge a workable and effective climate change policy for Australia, and our treatment of refugees and asylum seekers.

    This is a fascinating insider's account of what it means to be a woman in politics- the sacrifices of family life and relationships, the relentless misogyny and sexism that must be endured, the gritty conviction that you must never, ever give up the pursuit of the greater good. It is the story of Australian politics and the fight to save the world, and essential reading for anyone who cares about either.

    ‘A lady dancer, a comedienne, and a comic singer. And the head of my own travelling troupe. The Ada Delroy Company, lately extinct.’

    Meet Ada. Losing her looks but not her touch, waving a morphia cocktail and holding forth from her bed, she’s still got some silks, sequins, a scrapbook, and the story of her life on the stage and the road. And what a life.

    ‘I was a household name. I had a diamond pendant near as big as an emu egg off the Maharajah of What's-His-Name (it'll come to me). They named a racehorse after me, and a pigeon and a potato soup on an Orient steamship. Newspaper reporters around the globe knew me as the Premier Serpentine Dancer Of the World, the inventor of the form, if you don’t count its actual inventor.’

    Ada was world famous when clairvoyants, cockatoo acts and strongmen toured the world and performed for everyone from royalty to riotous miners and larrikins. But underneath the rouge, the glorious glamour and cheeky wit was the reality of life for a girl who couldn't help being both fabulous and disreputable.

    Beautifully imagined and lovingly researched, Ada comes to life in genuine, vivid detail. Everyone in this novel was a real person and we've got the photos to prove it. As for the story, well, you’ll want to hear Ada tell it.

    The last novel from international crime bestseller Henning Mankell. A brilliant and moving mystery set in the Swedish archipelago.

    Fredrik Welin is a seventy-year-old retired doctor. Years ago he retreated to the Swedish archipelago, where he lives alone on an island. He swims in the sea every day, cutting a hole in the ice if necessary. He lives a quiet life. Until he wakes up one night to find his house on fire.

    Fredrik escapes just in time, wearing two left-footed wellies, as neighbouring islanders arrive to help douse the flames. All that remains in the morning is a stinking ruin and evidence of arson. The house that has been in his family for generations and all his worldly belongings are gone. He cannot think who would do such a thing, or why. Without a suspect, the police begin to think he started the fire himself.

    Tackling love, loss and loneliness, After the Fire is Henning Mankell’s compelling last novel.

    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    The most comprehensive and definitive biography of Muhammad Ali that has ever been published, based on more than 500 interviews with those who knew him best, with many dramatic new discoveries about his life and career.

    When the frail, trembling figure of Muhammad Ali lit the Olympic flame in Atlanta in 1996, a TV audience of up to 3 billion people was once again gripped by the story of the world's most famous sporting icon. The man who had once been reviled for his refusal to fight for his country and for his fast-talking denunciation of his opponents was now almost universally adored, the true cost of his astonishing boxing career clear to see.

    In Jonathan Eig's ground-breaking biography, backed up with much detailed new research specially commissioned for this book, we get a stunning portrait of one of the most significant personalities of the second half of the twentieth century. We are not only taken inside the ring for some of the most famous bouts in boxing history, we also learn about his personal life, his finances, his faith and the moments when the first signs of his physical decline began to show. Ali was a symbol of freedom and courage, a hero to many, but this is also a very personal story of a warrior who vanquished every opponent but was finally brought down by his own stubborn refusal to quit.

    An epic tale of a fighter who became the world's most famous pacifist, Ali: A Life does full justice to an extraordinary man.
