    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 Faber poetry list, originally founded in the 1920s, is celebrating its 90th year in 2019. For nearly forty years the list was shaped by the taste of T.S. Eliot, who was its guiding light. Since the sixties, each passing decade has seen the list grow with the addition of poets who were arguably the finest of their generation. More recently the creation of the Poet to Poet series has further broadened the scope of Faber poetry by including the work of great poets from the past, selected and introduced by the contemporary poets they have inspired.

    Title: DOGS IN SPACE : A Film Archive
    Author: LOWENSTEIN RICHARD
    Format: PAPER COVER
    Publishing status: BACK IN STOCK SOON

    In May 1984, young Australian film director Richard Lowenstein took his first feature film, Strikebound, to the Cannes Film Festival.

    There, after a night partying in Nice with INXS lead singer and rising rock star Michael Hutchence, an idea that had been percolating through years of life in a Melbourne share house, watching Countdown, punk rock gigs and friends lose it to drugs finally erupted into existence. The result was the cult film, Dogs in Space, with Hutchence in the lead role.

    Dogs in Space- The Diaries presents for the first time the candid (and entertaining) 'shoot diary', kept by Lowenstein over the course of conceiving, funding and making the film between 1984 and 1987. The highly illustrated volume showcases never-before seen contact sheets, wardrobe polaroids and a stunning collection of images from on set and behind the scenes featuring Hutchence, Saskia Post and other cast (including Deanna Bond and a young Noah Taylor) and crew, storyboards, fragments of the shooting script and continuity logs. In addition, the book features a selection of ephemera, memorabilia - including fan mail sent to Lowenstein by Dawn Cave (Nick's Mum) - and extracts from previously inaccessible reviews and articles about the film.

    With energetic humour and a distinct understanding of music, fashion and Melbourne in the early 1980s this book provides rare insights into the processes involved in actually making a film. It concludes with a brief reflection from Lowenstein, fresh from completing Mystify, his searing documentary on the life of Hutchence, on what has changed in filmmaking and what hasn't over the past thirty years.

    Title: FUCKING GOOD MANNERS
    Author: GRIFFIN SIMON
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: November 2019 New Release

    This is not a book about how to be posh. We have some slightly bigger issues to deal with these days.

    We've all got a million things to do and are constantly connected to millions of other people all doing a million other things, so the faster we get things done the better, right? Wrong. Among all the busyness and confusion it seems we've forgotten a few of the basics in life, like the ability to treat one another with respect, dignity and some fucking good manners.

    Enter Simon Griffin, author of Fucking Apostrophes.

    From the entry-level stuff like saying please, thank you and sorry; manspreading on public transport and double-lane queuing at airports, to those that require just a little bit more thought, such as correct urinal protocol in public toilets, making tea rounds in the office and online public displays of affection, Simon imparts rules and advice to living life in a way that makes it just a bit better for everyone. With some liberal use of rude words thrown in to emphasise the point.

    With chapters on driving, social media, the environment, getting on with your neighbours, and the best manners for a trip to the cinema, this is the perfect gift for a manners enthusiast, or those in need of a gentle (but sweary) nudge in the right direction.

    Title: HOW TO BE A PARISIAN WHEREVER YOU ARE
    Author: BEREST ANNE/DE MAIGRET CAROLINE/DIWAN, AUDREY/MA
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    Four fabulous, smart, savvy French women offer up their highly amusing insider take on Parisian life, love and liberty.

    How to Be a Parisian brilliantly deconstructs the French woman's views on culture, fashion and attitude. Unlike other books on French style, this illustrated handbook is full of wit and self-deprecating humour. Authors - Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline De Maigret and Sophie Mas - are bohemian free-thinkers and iconoclasts, and they are not afraid to cut through some of the myths. They say what you don't expect to hear, just the way you want to hear it. They are not against smoking in bed, and all for art, politics and culture, making everything look easy, and going against the grain. Including 80 black and white and colour pictures, many taken by the authors, How to Be a Parisian explains those confusing subjects of clothes, makeup, men, culture and lifestyle as only a true Parisienne can. On the style front: You don't always have to be made up, but you should always be well dressed. Your look should always have one thing left undone - the devil is in the detail. Either go all grey hair or no grey hair. Salt and pepper is for the table. Or on how to answer the phone when he finally calls: The Parisienne lets the phone ring. (She's not waiting by the phone.) She feigns surprise upon hearing his voice. (She wasn't expecting his call.) She asks if she can call him back in five minutes. (She's in the middle of something.) The thing is, she's not alone... (Et oui: you should never have kept her waiting.) What the Parisian won't let near her wardrobe: Logos. You are not a billboard. Ugg Boots. Enough said. Don't even ask. Skimpy top. Because you're not fifteen anymore. The fake designer bag. Like fake breasts, you can't fix your insecurities through forgery.

    The ideal man to be seen with: He's not muscular (You'd rather think of him reading a book than lifting weights) He's unshaven (Just enough so that you never fully see the man behind the stubble) He's funny (Until he disappears) He's got something special (And it's not a car)

    There are many books on a Parisian's bookshelf: The books you claim you've read so many times that you actually believe you have. The books you read in school of which you only remember the main character's name. The books that you've been promising yourself you'll read next summer...for the past ten years. The books that you think make you cool. The books you keep for your children, just in case you ever have any. The books you own simply because you must and, taken together, form intangible proof that you are well read.
