    A hundred and seventy years ago many people would have chosen to die rather than undergo theordeal of surgery. Today, even major operations are routine. Anaesthesia has made them possible.

    But how much do we really know about what happens when we go under? Can we hear what’s going on around us? Is pain still pain if we are not awake to feel it, or don’t remember it afterwards? How does the unconscious mind deal with the body’s experience of being cut open and ransacked? And what happens to those rare patients who wake up under the knife?

    Haunting, lyrical, sometimes shattering, Anaesthesia leavens science with personal experience – and
    brings an intensely human curiosity to the unknowable realm beyond consciousness.

    Andy Goldsworthy: Projects presents more than 40 of the artist’s recent large-scale sculptural work from around the world. Using local materials—including stone, clay, and wood—Goldsworthy’s projects are inspired by and interact with the natural landscape. Each project subjects Goldsworthy’s ideas about the work to the brute facts and forces of nature: sunlight, sedimentation, tides, erosion, extremes of heat and cold, and plant growth and decay. Situated mostly throughout Europe and the United States, Goldsworthy’s projects are as beautiful as they are thought-provoking. Each one is accompanied with notes by the artist, and many have not been published previously.

    Andy Goldsworthy: Projects is a companion volume to Andy Goldsworthy: Ephemeral Works (2015).

    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    In this haunting new novel, Katerina Klova and her mother are crossing the Atlantic by ocean liner. When Anne suffers a psychotic breakdown, Katerina is left alone on a ship full of strangers who span classes and stations, all of whom carry their ambitions, fears and obsessions with them. For a seventeen-year-old girl, the daughter of an ambassador, it’s an exciting, frightening world to navigate.

    Atlantic Black is a psychologically intense and affecting story of unexpected familial betrayal, of a mother and daughter's relationship, of a brother and father whose voices resonate from afar. Personal loneliness, love and loss, are tightly bound to the wider reality of a world set on a fateful course. The legacy of violence, and of how the First World War precipitated the Second World War reverberates as if ‘tolling on the inside of a church bell’. Through the eyes of Katerina and her own family’s place within a fracturing world, we see the way damage, yet also hope, are passed from one generation to another. A.S. Patric's writing is achingly tender, the tone merciless but heartbreaking in its compassion.

    The story takes place over one day and night, New Year's Eve, 1939. The RMS Aquitania steams across the Atlantic Ocean. On the horizon, the world is about to explode.
