Tortellini at Midnight: And Other Heirloom Family Recipes from Taranto to Turin to Tuscany by Emiko Davies

  *cover image coming soon*

*cover image coming soon*

Don't eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn't recognise as food. - Michael Pollan Sometime in the 1950s, Emiko Davies' nonno-in-law began the tradition of ringing in the new year with tortellini al sugo. He served it along with spumante and a round of tombola, and sparked a trend; up until the 1970s, you could find tortellini at midnight on New Year's Eve in the bars around the Tuscan town of Fucecchio. This is just one of the heirloom dishes in this collection, for which Emiko Davies has gathered some of her favourite family recipes. They trace generations that span the length of Italy, from the Mediterranean port city of Taranto in the southern heel of Puglia to elegant Turin, the city of aperitif and Italian cafe culture in the far north and, finally, back to Tuscany, which Emiko calls home. Tortellini at Midnight is a book rich with nostalgia, with fresh, comforting food and stunning photography. It is a book that is good for the soul.

Emiko Davis, born in Australia to a Japanese mother and a diplomat Australian father, has spent most of her life living abroad - her adolescence was spent in China, she attended university in the United States and now, for more than a decade, she has called Italy home. She first fell in love with Florence as a twenty-year-old art student. When she couldn't get the city out of her head, a few years later she returned to study art restoration and photography and soak in the Florentine lifestyle (learning Italian along the way). It was then that she met Marco and the pair got married. Marco became a sommelier and Emiko started writing a food blog dedicated to telling the stories behind regional and historical Italian dishes, as well as their travels and family life in Italy. Tortellini at Midnight is her third cookbook after Florentine and Acquacotta, which both focus on the traditional, regional dishes of two beloved Tuscan places: Florence and the Maremma, respectively. Emiko continues to write about food and travel within Italy on her blog, as well as for popular New York-based website Food52, and for publications such as Gourmet Traveller and Conde Nast Traveller. She lives in Florence with her husband, Marco, and their two young daughters.

The Breakthrough: Immunotherapy and the Race to Cure Cancer by Charles Graeber

9781925322484.jpg

One hundred years ago, physicians marvelled at patients with bacterial infections who appeared to have been spontaneously cured of deadly tumours. What was a miraculous mystery then is now hard scientific fact- immunotherapy is the cutting edge of cancer treatment, and a crucial breakthrough in the race to find the ultimate cure.

As advances in our understanding of cancer and the human immune system continue to fuel a therapeutic arms race among biotech and pharmaceutical companies around the world, the next step - harnessing the wealth of new information into modern and more effective patient therapies - is already well underway.
The Breakthrough is the first book to address the groundbreaking science of cancer treatment through immunotherapy. It is the incredible true story of the race to find a cure, a dispatch from the life-changing world of oncological science, and a brave new chapter in our fight with cancer.

Charles Graeber is a former medical student, a contributing editor to Wired, and also contributes to publications such asThe New York TimesThe New Yorker, GQ, Vogue, and many others. He has received many awards, and his work has been featured on NPR, CNN, the BBC, and numerous other media outlets.

An Orchestra of Minorities by Chigozie Obioma

an-orchestra-of-minorities.jpeg

Chinonso, a young poultry farmer, sees a woman attempting to jump to her death from a highway bridge. Horrified by her recklessness, Chinonso joins her on the roadside and hurls two of his most prized chickens into the water below to demonstrate the severity of the fall. The woman, Ndali, is moved by his sacrifice. Bonded by this strange night on the bridge, Chinonso and Ndali fall in love. But Ndali is from a wealthy family, and when they officially object to the union because he is uneducated, Chinonso sells most of his possessions to attend a small college in Cyprus. Once in Cyprus, he discovers that all is not what it seems. Furious at a world which continues to relegate him to the sidelines, Chinonso gets further and further away from his dream, from Ndali and the place he called home.
In this contemporary twist of Homer's Odyssey, in the mythic style of the Igbo literary tradition, Chigozie Obioma weaves a heart-wrenching epic about the tension between destiny and determination.

Chigozie Obioma was born in 1986 in Akure, Nigeria, and currently lives in the United States. He is an assistant professor of Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. His debut novel, The Fishermen, is winner of the inaugural FT/Oppenheimer Award for Fiction, the NAACP Image Awards for Debut Literary Work, and the Art Seidenbaum Award for First Fiction (Los Angeles Times Book Prizes); and was a finalist for the Man Booker Prize 2015, as well as for several other prizes in the US and UK.

We Are Displaced: My Journey and Stories from Refugee Girls Around the World by Malala Yousafzai

we-are-displaced.jpeg

Nobel Peace Prize winner and bestselling author Malala Yousafzai introduces some of the people behind the statistics and news stories we read or hear every day about the millions of people displaced worldwide.
Malala's experiences travelling the world and visiting refugee camps caused her to reconsider her own displacement - first as an Internally Displaced Person when she was a young child in Pakistan, and then as an international activist who could travel anywhere in the world, except to the home she loved. In We Are Displaced, which is part memoir, part communal storytelling, Malala not only explores her own story of adjusting to a new life while longing for home, but she also shares the personal stories of some of the incredible girls she has met on her various journeys -girls who have lost their community, relatives, and often the only world they've ever known. In a time of immigration crises, war, and border conflicts,
We Are Displaced is an important reminder from one of the world's most prominent young activists that every single one of the 68.5 million currently displaced is a person - often a young person - with hopes and dreams, and that everyone deserves universal human rights and a safe home.


Malala Yousafzai
came to public attention by writing for BBC Urdu about life under the Taliban. In October 2012, she was targeted by the Taliban and shot in the head as she was returning from school on a bus. She miraculously survived and continues her campaign for education. In recognition of her courage and advocacy, Malala was honoured with the NATIONAL PEACE PRIZE in Pakistan in 2011. She is the youngest ever person nominated for a NOBEL PEACE PRIZE. She was shortlisted for TIME magazine Person of the Year and has received numerous other awards. Malala continues to champion universal access to education through the Malala Fund. She is the author of the memoir I AM MALALA and the children's book MALALA'S MAGIC PENCIL.

Gene Eating: The Science of Obesity and the Truth About Diets

gene-eating.jpeg

Why are we all getting fatter? Why are some people hungrier than others? Why, despite all of the latest advice, is obesity on the rise? And why don't diets work? In an age of misinformation and pseudo-science, the world is getting fatter and the diet makers are getting richer. So how do we break this cycle that's literally killing us all?
Drawing on the very latest science, and his own genetic research at Cambridge University, Dr. Giles Yeo has written the seminal 'anti-diet' diet book. Exploring the history of our food, debunking marketing nonsense, detoxifying diet advice and confronting the advocates of clean eating, Giles translates his pioneering research into an engaging, must-read study of the human appetite.
In a post-truth world, GENE EATING cuts straight to the data-driven facts. Only by understanding the physiology of our bodies, their hormonal functions and their caloric needs can we overcome the misinformation of modern dieting trends, empower us to make better decisions, and achieve healthy relationships with food, our bodies and our weight. Inspiring and revelatory, filled with lively anecdotes and fascinating detail, GENE EATING is an urgent and essential book that will change the way we eat.

Giles Yeo is a geneticist with over 20 years' experience dedicated to researching obesity and the brain control of food intake. He obtained his PhD from the University of Cambridge and assisted the pioneering research that uncovered key pathways in how the brain controls food intake. His current research focuses on understanding how these pathways differ from person to person, and the influence of genetics in our relationship with food and eating habits. He is based at the MRC Metabolic Diseases Unit, where he is director of Genomics, and is a fellow and graduate tutor at Wolfson College. Giles also moonlights as science presenter for the BBC. He lives in Cambridge with his family.

How To Be Second Best by Jessica Dettmann

how-to-be-second-best.jpeg

A hilarious and heart-warming debut that captures the dramas, delights and delirium of modern parenting. This is Marian Keyes meets Allison Pearson, with a dash of Caitlin Moran. Going from one child to two is never all that easy for a family, but when Emma's husband simultaneously fathers a third child three doors up the street, things get very tricky, very fast. No longer is it enough for Emma to be the best wife and mother - now she's trying to be the best ex-wife, and the best part-time parent to her ex's love child, and that's before she even thinks about adding a new bloke to the mix. Set in an upwardly mobile, ultra-competitive suburb, this is a funny, biting, heartwarming modern comedy that looks at the roles we play, how we compete, and what happens when we dare to strive for second-best.'Jessica Dettmann is a fine comic writer. She has an eye for the small details, irritations and inspirations of life which coupled with a truly original turn of phrase and great way with a gag makes for sparkling and heart-warming reading.'

The Au Pair by Emma Rous

9780349419091.jpg

Seraphine Mayes and her brother Danny are known as the summer-born Summerbournes: the first set of summer twins to be born at Summerbourne House. But on the day they were born their mother threw herself to her death, their au pair fled, and the village thrilled with whispers of dark-cloaked figures and a stolen baby.

Now twenty-five, and mourning the recent death of her father, Seraphine uncovers a family photograph taken on the day the twins were born featuring both parents posing with just one baby. Seraphine soon becomes fixated with the notion that she and Danny might not be twins after all, that she wasn't the baby born that day and that there was more to her mother's death than she has ever been told...

Why did their beloved au pair flee that day?

Where is she now?

Does she hold the key to what really happened?

King of the Air The Turbulent Life of Charles Kingsford Smith by Ann Blainey

king-of-the-air.jpg

Charles Kingsford Smith was the most commanding flyer of the golden age of aviation. In three short years, he broke records with his astounding and daring voyages- the first trans-Pacific flight from America to Australia, the first flight across the Tasman, the first non-stop crossing of the Australian mainland. He did it all with such courage, modesty and charm that Australia and the world fell in love with him. A ticker-tape parade was held in his honour on New York's Fifth Avenue. At home, he became a national hero, 'Our Smithy'.

Yet his achievements belied a traumatic past. He had witnessed the horror of World War I - first as a soldier at Gallipoli, later as a combat pilot with the Royal Flying Corps. Erratic, a compulsive philanderer, and almost always broke, he began to embark on increasingly wild and dangerous stunts. The public saw the derring-do; only those close to him knew the anxious, troubled individual who pushed himself to the edge of sanity.
In November 1935, Kingsford Smith's plane crashed and he was lost at sea near Burma, his body never to be recovered. This brilliant work from one of Australia's foremost biographers reveals the tumultuous life of a fascinating, enigmatic figure, who pursued his obsession to the greatest heights of fame and catastrophe.

Heart A History by Sandeep Jauhar

heart.jpg

The heart is at the centre of every life. It is the first major organ to develop and, three billion beats later, it is the last to stop working. The object of fascination for countless scientists and artists across the centuries, the heart is as much a metaphorical as a physiological matter it can even suffer such distress due to emotional trauma that it physically changes shape.
Tracing the evolution of humanity 's medical knowledge from Ancient Greece to modern times, delving into religion and spirituality, exploring art and poetry, Dr Sandeep Jauhar tells the story of the heart as it has never been told before. Enriched by his own experiences as a doctor, it is a tale at once personal and universal, encompassing science 's wonders and failures, and addressing the immense challenges faced by health professionals today as the tide of heart failures continues to rise throughout the developed world. Heart is a major and moving contribution to the history and science of the organ inside each of us that both initiates and claims our lives.

The New Silk Roads: The Present and Future of the World by Peter Frankopan

the-new-silk-roads.jpg

When The Silk Roads was published in 2015 it became an instant classic. A major reassessment of world history, it compelled us look at the past from a different perspective. The New Silk Roads brings this story up to date, addressing the present and future of a world that is changing dramatically. 
Following the Silk Roads eastwards, from Europe through to China, by way of Russia and the Middle East, The New Silk Roads provides a timely reminder that we live in a world that is profoundly interconnected. In an age of Brexit and Trump, the themes of isolation and fragmentation permeating the Western world stand in sharp contrast to what has been happening along the Silk Roads since 2015, where the story has been about deepening ties and trying to work together. 

With brilliant insight, Peter Frankopan takes a fresh look at the network of relationships that are being formed along the length and breadth of the Silk Roads today, assessing the global reverberations of these continual shifts in the centre of power all too often absent from headlines in the west. 
This important and ultimately hopeful book asks us to re-read who we are and where we are in the world, illuminating the themes on which all our lives and livelihood depend.

roxy-s-little-black-book-of-tips-and-tricks.jpg

The fact that I'm sitting here writing a business book when, at school, I was the student who read the crib notes rather than the actual books is rather ironic.

If I can do it, anyone can. The trick is to be willing to give up your excuses and consistently put in the work.

Roxy Jacenko built a PR empire on intuition, common sense and an unbreakable work ethic. Now she's passing on her best business advice, tips and tricks in a handsome handbag-sized volume that's perfectly sized for the millennial worker on the run.
