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 Schoolgirl, Her Teacher and His Wife by Rebecca Hazel

9780143796336.jpg

In 2007, while working at a local women’s refuge, lawyer Rebecca Hazel struck up a friendship with one of her colleagues whose name was Joanne Curtis. One day, while chatting over coffee, Jo told Rebecca about her past- about a missing woman, a husband who got away with everything, and a vulnerable schoolgirl at the centre of it all.
Lynette Dawson disappeared from Sydney’s Northern Beaches on 9 January 1982 and has not been heard from since. For eighteen months before she vanished, her husband Chris had been in a sexual relationship with his teenage student, Jo Curtis. Just days after Lynette went missing, Jo moved into the Dawson family home to live with Chris and his two young children. Later, they got married. Then, after almost ten years, Jo left him, taking only the little girl they had together.
It was some years before Rebecca decided she would write about what happened to Jo, and to Lynette. She spent many days with Jo, picking over what she knew and what prompted her to finally leave Chris Dawson and go to the police. No charges have ever been laid over Lynette’s disappearance, despite the recommendations of two coronial inquests, and Chris Dawson has always strenuously maintained his innocence.
The Schoolgirl, Her Teacher and His Wife is a meticulous and compelling account of one of Sydney’s most puzzling cold cases, brilliantly reconstructed from court transcripts and interviews with key players, including Lynette’s friends and family, policeman Damian Loone, who has been investigating her disappearance for nearly twenty years, and crucially, Joanne Curtis herself.

Rebecca Hazel has worked in family law; in a women and children’s refuge; helped establish and worked in the Women’s Family Law Support Service at the Family Court in Sydney; and briefly in domestic violence policy at Legal Aid. She lives in Sydney's northern beaches.

The Ditch by Herman Koch

9781925773361.jpg

 When Robert Walter, popular mayor of Amsterdam, sees his wife toss her head back in laughter while chatting to one of his aldermen at a New Year’s reception, he immediately suspects the worst. Despite their long and happy marriage, Robert is convinced that Sylvia is cheating on him-and with the straitlaced alderman, no less, who is committed to the environment and wants to spoil the capital’s skyline with wind turbines. Soon afterwards, a journalist produces a photograph of a police officer being beaten up by three protesters during a demonstration against the Vietnam War. She claims that the mayor is one of the protesters.Then, out of the blue, Robert’s 94-year-old father turns up on the steps of the city hall, desperate to speak to him. He and his wife want to die together. They do not want to burden their son with their deteriorating health, so why not end their own lives when the time is right?
The Ditch shows a seemingly stable man rapidly becoming entangled in his own fears and suspicions. Or is everything not what it seems, and is Robert Walter actually seeing things clearly for the very first time?

Herman Koch is an actor, screenwriter and columnist in the Netherlands and the author of a number of satirical novels, including The Dinner, Summer House with Swimming Pool and Dear Mr M. Now a major film, The Dinner was the first of his books to be published in English and spent a year on the New York Times bestseller list. It has sold more than 2.5 million copies worldwide and been translated into thirty-nine languages.

Accidental Feminists by Jane Caro

accidental-feminists.jpeg

Women over fifty-five are of the generation that changed everything. We didn’t expect to. Or intend to. We weren’t brought up much differently from the women who came before us, and we rarely identified as feminists, although almost all of us do now. 
Accidental Feminists is our story. It explores how the world we lived in-with the pill and a regular pay cheque-transformed us and how, almost in spite of ourselves, we revolutionised the world. It is a celebration of grit, adaptability, energy and persistence. It is also a plea for future generations to keep agitating for a better, fairer world.

Jane Caro is an author, novelist, broadcaster, columnist, advertising writer and social commentator.

Heart of the Grass Tree by Molly Murn

9780143792499.jpg

Pearl remembers Nell’s feet stretched towards the campfires on the beach, her fourth toe curled in and nestled against the middle toe like a small prawn. They all have a curled fourth toe - Diana, Lucy, Pearl.
When Pearl?s grandmother Nell dies unexpectedly, Pearl and her family - mother Diana, sister Lucy - return to Kangaroo Island to mourn and farewell her. Each of them knew Nell intimately but differently, and each woman must reckon with Nell’s passing in her own way. But Nell had secrets, too, and as Pearl, Diana and Lucy interrogate their feelings about the island, Pearl starts to pull together the scraps Nell left behind - her stories, poems, paintings - and unearths a connection to the island’s early history, of the early European sealers and their first contact with the Ngarrindjeri people.
As the three women are in grief pulled apart from each other, Pearl’s deepening connection to their history, the island’s history, grounds her, and will ultimately bring the women back to each other. 
Heart of the Grass Tree is an exquisite, searing and hope-filled debut about mothers and daughters and family stories, about country and its living history.

Molly Murn is a South Australian author and poet. She holds a Bachelor of Dance, a Masters of Creative Arts, and is currently a PhD candidate in Creative Writing at Flinders University.
Molly also works as a bookseller at Matilda Bookshop in the Adelaide Hills. Heart of the Grass Tree, is her first novel.

There’s no right or wrong when it comes to love, life and relationships. There are no rules and there is no normal when it comes to the heart; it’s different for each of us, every single time. However! A fresh perspective never hurts, especially if the Same Shit keeps happening again and again. Thankfully, this visually pleasing tome lovingly serves up a few for you to consider. With her trademark warmth, wit and realism, Australia’s favourite relationship advisor Zoe Foster Blake is here to benevolently guide you through the murky, magnificent spectrum of love. Love for yourself!

Read it with an open mind, and an open heart.

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.

Looker by Laura Sims

looker.jpeg

A hugely compulsive, dark, stylish and intense novel, simmering with Hitchcockian undertones - for readers of LULLABY, THE PARTY or Zoe Heller.
Have you ever wanted to steal someone else's life? The Professor lives in Brooklyn; her partner Nathan has left her; she can't have a baby. All she's left with is Nathan's old moggy, Cat. Who she doesn't even like. Then a celebrity actress moves into the area. She's beautiful, with long auburn hair, perfect skin, a lovely smile. She's got children - a baby, even. And a husband who seems to adore her. She leaves discarded household items and toys outside for thrift collection. She leaves her windows open, even at night. There's no harm, the Professor thinks, in recycling those items. Or looking in through the illuminated glass at that shiny, happy family. Is there?

Laura Sims is the author of four books of poetry, and LOOKER is her debut novel. She lives in Brooklyn.
