    Tired of hearing about how ‘love is all you need’ and that ‘love will conquer all’? Does the idea of balloons, love hearts, boxes of chocolates and birds suddenly appearing make your teeth ache with the sickly saccharine clichéd insanity? How about some real talk? It’s all a farce. Love sucks. As Charles Bukowski said, ‘If there are junk yards in hell, love is the dog that guards the gates.’

    The reality is, love is a madness that makes fools of all of us, and we’re better off without it. Whether you’re broken-hearted or just wise to the idiocy of love, know that you’re not alone. Love Sucks is a gorgeously illustrated collection of funny, bitter and brutally truthful quotes about how truly terrible love is, from music, film, TV, literature and history’s greatest and most jaded minds.

    So what if you have talent? Then what?

    When John Waters delivered his gleefully subversive advice to the graduates of the Rhode Island School of Design, the speech went viral, in part because it was so brilliantly on point about making a living as a creative person. Now we can all enjoy his sly wisdom in a manifesto that reminds us, no matter what field we choose, to embrace chaos, be nosy, and outrage our critics.

    Anyone embarking on a creative path, he tells us, would do well to realize that pragmatism and discipline are as important as talent and that rejection is nothing to fear. Waters advises young people to eavesdrop, listen to their enemies, and horrify us with new ideas. In other words, MAKE TROUBLE!

    Illustrated with slightly demented line drawings by Eric Hanson, Make Trouble is a one-of-a-kind gift, the perfect playbook for gaming the system by making the system work for you.

    Title: ME YOU : A DIARY
    Author: FRENCH DAWN
    Format: HARD COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    This is Dawn French's fabulous new non-fiction book and it's totally interactive: take a lovely ramble through the year together with Dawn. Think of it as Dawn's diary, personalized by you . . . perfection.

    I can't count the amount of diaries I have crammed full with entries in January, that then fizzle out as the other months pile in. One of my teenage diaries has fulsome fizzing reports of every single conversation, thought and feeling about every friend, every crush, every meal, every argument until mid-March, when the entry on the 18th simply reads,

    'Washed hair.'

    Thank god, this isn't that. This book is a way for us to tell the story of a year together. Feel free to write your appointments in it, lists, thoughts and reminders of, say, who to kill, and when, and in what order. But I've also written about age and life as I see it, through the seasons and the months, and I've added some places for you to join me in some fun and some thinking. By the end of the year, I am hoping you will have a fatter, scruffier book that is written by me but totally personalized by you.

    Come on in. The paper is lovely . . .

    Finding balance and meditation on two wheels.

    Cycling is about more than competitive racing, lycra, and physical endurance; it's about joy, meditative wonder and spiritual enrichment.

    Mindful Thoughts for Cyclists presents a series of focused meditations on why and how cycling can be a powerful practice of mindful awareness. From the pleasure of riding down a hill to finding the upsides of a puncture, Nick Moore steers us on an enlightening journey through the true value of riding a bicycle.

    On it, he encourages a shift in consciousness of 'those obsessed with the facts of cycling and wanting to excel in it to experience the fact of it'.

    Adam Ford is an enlightening guide to how mindfulness and walking can help us face the existential questions of 'Who am I?', 'Where have I come from?', What am I doing here?', and 'Where am I going?'

    Publishing status: NOVEMBER 2017 NEW RELEASE

    From the tiny museum that has become an international phenomenon comes a delightful, crowd-sourced gift book: a lively, poignant celebration of modern love.

    What to do with the fragments of a love affair?

    A postcard from a childhood sweetheart. A wedding dress in a jar. Barbed wire. Silicone breast implants. Red stilettos, never worn. These objects and many others make up the inspiring, whimsical, sometimes bizarre, and always unforgettable population of the real-life Museum of Broken Relationships.

    A decade ago, two lovers were struggling through their own painful breakup, desperate to heal their heartbreak without destroying the memory of the love they had shared. Then, an idea struck: they would create a communal space, a kind of refuge for - and cathartic celebration of - the everyday objects that had outlasted love. These items, along with the anonymous, intimate stories each piece represented, quickly captured hearts and imaginations across the globe. As word spread, the tiny museum became a worldwide sensation.

    Collected here are 203 of the best, funniest, most heartwarming and thought-provoking pieces that offer an irresistible experience of human connection. The Museum of Broken Relationships is a poignant celebration of modern love - and a must-read for anyone who has ever loved and lost.

    Cartoonist Oslo Davis listens in to real people saying real things – and it’s hilarious.

    Every week since 2007, Oslo Davis has been eavesdropping on people in the city of Melbourne, Australia, and recording what he hears in a cartoon for The Age newspaper. His wry observations have earned him a cult following, and ten years on he has become a beloved fixture.

    Now, for the first time, his Overheard cartoons have been collected in a hilarious compilation, with chapters covering Family Matters, Modern Life, Relationships, The Daily Grind, Friends Like These and What The. Transported through the city by Oslo’s nimble pen, we listen in to the daughter telling her mother not to interfere in party preparations, the fat man pondering what is least bad to eat, and the hipster commenting on what is truly hip.

    Overheard is a hysterical collection with universal appeal.
