The Lost Man by Jane Harper

Harper.jpg

Three brothers, one death, a fenceline stretching to the horizon.

Two brothers meet at the border of their vast cattle properties under the unrelenting sun of outback Queensland. They are at the stockman's grave, a landmark so old, no one can remember who is buried there. But today, the scant shadow it casts was the last hope for their middle brother, Cameron. The Bright family's quiet existence is thrown into grief and anguish. Something had been troubling Cam. Did he lose hope and walk to his death? Because if he didn't, the isolation of the outback leaves few suspects...

For readers who loved The Dry and Force of Nature, Jane Harper has once again created a powerful story of suspense, set against a dazzling landscape.

 

Jane Harper worked as a print journalist for thirteen years both in Australia and the UK, and now lives in Melbourne with her husband and daughter. Her first novel, The Dry, was an international bestseller, winning numerous top awards including the Australia Book Industry and Indie Book of the Year awards, the UK's CWA Gold Dagger Award for Best Crime Novel and the Victorian Premier's Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript. Jane's novels, The Dry and Force of Nature, have been sold to 34 territories worldwide.

The Land Before Avocado by Richard Glover

the-land-before-avocado.jpeg

The new book from the bestselling author of Flesh Wounds. A funny and frank look at the way Australia used to be - and just how far we have come.

'It was simpler time'. We had more fun back then'. 'Everyone could afford a house'.

There's plenty of nostalgia right now for the Australia of the past, but what was it really like? In The Land Before Avocado, Richard Glover takes a journey to an almost unrecognisable Australia. It's a vivid portrait of a quite peculiar land: a place that is scary and weird, dangerous and incomprehensible, and, now and then, surprisingly appealing.It's the Australia of his childhood. The Australia of the late '60s and early '70s.

Let's break the news now: they didn't have avocado. It's a place of funny clothing and food that was appalling, but amusingly so. It also the land of staggeringly awful attitudes - often enshrined in law - towards anybody who didn't fit in. The Land Before Avocado will make you laugh and cry, be angry and inspired. And leave you wondering how bizarre things were, not so long ago. Most of all it will make you realise how far we've come - and how much further we can go.

The Arsonist: A Mind On Fire by Chloe Hooper

9780670078189.jpg

The Arsonist takes readers inside the hunt for a fire-lighter. After Black Saturday, a February 2009 day marked by 47 degree heat and firestorms, arson squad detectives arrived at a plantation on the edge of a 26,000-hectare burn site. Eleven people had just been killed and hundreds made homeless. Here, in the Latrobe Valley, where Victoria’s electricity is generated, and the rates of unemployment, crime and domestic abuse are the highest in the state, more than thirty people were known to police as firebugs. But the detectives soon found themselves on the trail of a man they didn’t know.

The Arsonist tells a remarkable detective story, as the police close in on someone they believe to be a cunning offender; and a puzzling psychological story, as defence lawyers seek to understand the motives of a man who, they claimed, was a naïf that had accidentally dropped a cigarette.

It is the story not only of this fire – how it happened, the people who died, the aftermath for the community – but of fire in this country. What it has done, what it has meant, what it might yet do. Bushfire is one of Australia’s deepest anxieties, never more so than when deliberately lit. Arson, wrote Henry Lawson, expresses a malice ‘terrifying to those who have seen what it is capable of. You never know when you are safe.’

As she did in The Tall Man, Chloe Hooper takes us to a part of the country seldom explored, and reveals something buried but essential in our national psyche. The bush, summertime, a smouldering cigarette – none of these will feel the same again.

 

Chloe Hooper's The Tall Man- Death and Life on Palm Island (2008) won the Victorian, New South Wales, West Australian and Queensland Premier's Literary Awards, as well as the John Button Prize for Political Writing, and a Ned Kelly Award for crime writing. She is also the author of two novels, A Child's Book of True Crime and The Engagement.

Louisiana's Way Home by Kate DiCamillo

1529367253290.jpeg

When Louisiana Elefante’s granny wakes her up in the middle of the night to tell her that the day of reckoning has arrived and they have to leave home immediately, Louisiana isn’t overly worried. After all, Granny has many middle-of-the-night ideas. But this time, things are different. This time, Granny intends for them never to return. Separated from her best friends, Raymie and Beverly, Louisiana struggles to oppose the winds of fate (and Granny) and find a way home. But as Louisiana’s life becomes entwined with the lives of the people of a small Georgia town — including a surly motel owner, a walrus-like minister, and a mysterious boy with a crow on his shoulder — she starts to worry that she is destined only for good-byes. (Which could be due to the curse on Louisiana's and Granny’s heads. But that is a story for another time.)

Called “one of DiCamillo’s most singular and arresting creations” by The New York Times Book Review, the heartbreakingly irresistible Louisiana Elefante was introduced to readers in Raymie Nightingale — and now, with humor and tenderness, Kate DiCamillo returns to tell her story.

 

Kate DiCamillo is one of America’s most beloved storytellers. She is a former National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature and a two-time winner of the Newbery Medal, for The Tale of Despereaux and Flora & Ulysses. Born in Philadelphia, she grew up in Florida and now lives in Minneapolis, where she faithfully writes two pages a day, five days a week.

Shell by Kristen Olsson

shell-9781925685329.jpg

In 1965, as Danish architect Jørn Utzon’s striking vision for the Sydney Opera House transforms the skyline and unleashes a storm of controversy, the shadow of the Vietnam War and a deadly lottery threaten to tear the country apart.

Journalist Pearl Keogh, exiled to the women’s pages after being photographed at an anti-war protest, is desperate to find her two missing brothers and save them from the draft. Axel Lindquist, a visionary young glass artist from Sweden, is obsessed with creating a unique work that will do justice to Utzon’s towering masterpiece.

In this big, bold and hauntingly beautiful portrait of art and life, Shell captures a world on the brink of seismic change though the eyes of two unforgettable characters caught in the eye of the storm.

Whiskey in a Teacup by Reese Witherspoon

whiskey-in-a-teacup.jpg

Academy award–winning actress, producer, and entrepreneur Reese Witherspoon invites you into her world, where she infuses the southern style, parties, and traditions she loves with contemporary flair and charm.

Reese Witherspoon’s grandmother Dorothea always said that a combination of beauty and strength made southern women “whiskey in a teacup.” We may be delicate and ornamental on the outside, she said, but inside we’re strong and fiery.

Reese’s southern heritage informs her whole life, and she loves sharing the joys of southern living with practically everyone she meets. She takes the South wherever she goes with bluegrass, big holiday parties, and plenty of Dorothea’s fried chicken. It’s reflected in how she entertains, decorates her home, and makes holidays special for her kids—not to mention how she talks, dances, and does her hair (in these pages, you will learn Reese’s fail-proof, only slightly insane hot-roller technique). Reese loves sharing Dorothea’s most delicious recipes as well as her favorite southern traditions, from midnight barn parties to backyard bridal showers, magical Christmas mornings to rollicking honky-tonks.

It’s easy to bring a little bit of Reese’s world into your home, no matter where you live. After all, there’s a southern side to every place in the world, right?

 

Reese Witherspoon is an American actress, producer, and entrepreneur. She is the recipient of several awards, including an Academy Award, a Primetime Emmy Award, a BAFTA Award, and two Golden Globe Awards.

From Jory John and Lane Smith, the winner of the 2017 Kate Greenaway Medal, comes a laugh-out-loud companion to the acclaimed Penguin Problems. Edward the giraffe can't understand why his neck is as long and bendy and ridiculous as it is. No other animal has a neck this absurd. He's tried disguising it, dressing it up, strategically hiding it behind bushes ... anything he can think of. But just when he's exhausted his neck-hiding options, a turtle ambles in and tries to help him understand that his neck has a purpose ... and looks excellent in a bow tie.

Smith & Deli-cious by Shannon Martinez & Mo Wyse

smith-deli-cious.jpg

You know it’s good when there’s always a line around the block. Smith & Deli is a trailblazing vegan deli, a Melbourne gem that outgrew its bricks from day one. Fortunately for you, these pages help you skip the queue and go right to the good stuff: mac and cheese, spanakopita, meat pies, doughnuts and more. 

From the creatives who brought you the innovative Smith & Daughters: A Cookbook (That Happens to be Vegan), Shannon Martinez and Mo Wyse are proud to present: Smith & Deli-cious: Food From Our Deli (That Happens to be Vegan) — an insight into the hundreds of DELIcious dishes they turn out regularly as well as a sneak peek into their thriving community. 

Ditch your bland, preconceived notions. This is DELIcious food. Vegan or not. 

 

Mo Wyse is a Seattle and New York expat. She studied journalism and has a background in production, but dedicated her passion for creative, plant-based food to creating Smith & Daughters and Smith & Deli, where she is the logistical, front-of-house and marketing brains behind this gun team. Mo has now woven herself into the hospitality industry fabric, where she has spoken on a variety of panels pertaining to both business as well as plant-based dining. People are waking up to the relevance of veganism and considering both Mo and Shannon to be outspoken advocates for expanding the plant-based foodscape. 

Shannon Martinez has cooked since she can remember, and her innovative, outside-the-square talents have contributed to kitchens across Melbourne for around 20 years. Shannon is an unlikely candidate to be the poster girl for plant-based dining, as she eats meat – but she is and she's unstoppable. Her unique perspective gives this mega talented chef the capability to create perfect tastes and textures, rather than pumping out bland and predictable vegan food. Armed with a strong hospitality network and industry tenure, Shannon has taken on some of Australia's most meat-driven kitchens and veganised them, convincing her peers there's something to this plant-based 'trend'. Working some of the nations largest food events, with some of Australia's greatest chefs, Shannon's next stop is TV and world domination. 

Smith & Daughters on Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, opened in 2014. An instant success (both in a full dining room and media attention), almost immediately the restaurant grew to 40 staff and was doing 400 covers a night. In July 2015, Shannon and Mo opened Smith & Deli, the world's first all-vegan deli, in nearby Moor Street. Their shop offers up a carefully curated selection of all-vegan groceries, freshly made pastries, salads and take-home meals as well as a long list of made-to-order sandwiches – and has queues out the door. Their need to expand is verging on desperate, and the next locations are in the works with big, big dreams for the 'Smith & ...' enterprise to expand.

You Daughters of Freedom: The Australians Who Won the Vote and Inspired The World by Clare Wright

9781925603934 (1).jpg

For the ten years from 1902, when Australia’s suffrage campaigners won the vote for white women, the world looked to this trailblazing young democracy for inspiration. 

Clare Wright’s epic new history tells the story of that victory—and of Australia’s role in the subsequent international struggle—through the eyes of five remarkable players: the redoubtable Vida Goldstein, the flamboyant Nellie Martel, indomitable Dora Montefiore, daring Muriel Matters, and artist Dora Meeson Coates, who painted the controversial Australian banner carried in the British suffragettes’ monster marches of 1908 and 1911. 

Clare Wright’s Stella Prize-winning The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka retold one of Australia’s foundation stories from a fresh new perspective.
