City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert

city-of-girls[1].jpeg

It is the summer of 1940. Nineteen-year-old Vivian Morris arrives in New York with her suitcase and sewing machine, exiled by her despairing parents. Although her quicksilver talents with a needle and commitment to mastering the perfect hair roll have been deemed insufficient for her to pass into her sophomore year of Vassar, she soon finds gainful employment as the self-appointed seamstress at the Lily Playhouse, her unconventional Aunt Peg's charmingly disreputable Manhattan revue theatre. There, Vivian quickly becomes the toast of the showgirls, transforming the trash and tinsel only fit for the cheap seats into creations for goddesses. 

Exile in New York is no exile at all- here in this strange wartime city of girls, Vivian and her girlfriends mean to drink the heady highball of life itself to the last drop. And when the legendary English actress Edna Watson comes to the Lily to star in the company's most ambitious show ever, Vivian is entranced by the magic that follows in her wake. But there are hard lessons to be learned, and bitterly regrettable mistakes to be made. Vivian learns that to live the life she wants, she must live many lives, ceaselessly and ingeniously making them new.
'At some point in a woman's life, she just gets tired of being ashamed all the time. After that, she is free to become whoever she truly is,' she confides. And so Vivian sets forth her story, and that of the women around her women who have lived as they truly are, out of step with a century that could never quite keep up with them. 

Elizabeth Gilbert is the number one bestselling author of Eat Pray Love, which has sold over 15 million copies worldwide and been translated into over 46 languages, and several other international bestselling books of fiction and non-fiction. Her story collection Pilgrims was a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway award; The Last American Man was a finalist for both the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award. Her follow-up memoir to Eat Pray LoveCommitted, became an instant number one New York Times bestseller. She has published two novels, Stern Men and The Signature of All Things, which was longlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction and shortlisted for the Wellcome Book Prize. She lives in New Jersey.

Hitch by Kathryn Hind

9780143794349.jpg

Amelia stands beside a highway in the Australian desert, alone except for her dog and the occasional road train that speeds past her raised thumb. 
After her mother's funeral, Amelia was confronted by Zach and reminded of the relationship they had when she was a teenager. She feels complicit and remains unable to process what happened. So she ran. Her best friend, Sid, is Zach's cousin and the one person in the world she can depend upon.
But, of course, the road isn't safe either. Amelia is looking for generosity or human connection in the drivers she finds lifts with, and she does receive that. But she is also let down. 
Hitch is a raw exploration of consent and its ambiguities, personal agency and the choices we make. It's the story of twenty-something Amelia and her dog Lucy hitchhiking from one end of the country to the other, trying to outrun grief and trauma, and moving ever closer to the things she longs to escape.

Kathryn Hind was born in Canberra and has now returned there after living for five years in the UK. She's published essays and short stories in various Australian journals and collections, and has had a poem published on one of Canberra's Action buses. Kathryn began her first novel, Hitch, while studying in the UK, and in 2018 she was awarded the inaugural Penguin Literary Prize for the manuscript.

The Electric Hotel by Dominic Smith

A16YGzwr0M5pSA-oXfH5cFDurQfwqBphrOe2sfiJ9k2WHA``.jpeg

Dominic Smith's The Electric Hotel winds through the nascent days of cinema in Paris and Fort Lee, New Jersey--America's first movie town--and on the battlefields of Belgium during World War I. A sweeping work of historical fiction, it shimmers between past and present as it tells the story of the rise and fall of a prodigious film studio and one man's doomed obsession with all that passes in front of the viewfinder. For nearly half a century, Claude Ballard has been living at the Hollywood Knickerbocker Hotel. A French pioneer of silent films, who started out as a concession agent for the Lumiere brothers, the inventors of cinema, Claude now spends his days foraging mushrooms in the hills of Los Angeles and taking photographs of runaways and the striplings along Sunset Boulevard. But when a film-history student comes to interview Claude about The Electric Hotel--the lost masterpiece that bankrupted him and ended the career of his muse, Sabine Montrose--the past comes surging back. In his run-down hotel suite, the ravages of the past are waiting to be excavated: celluloid fragments and reels in desperate need of restoration, and Claude's memories of the woman who inspired and beguiled him.

Dominic grew up in Sydney, Australia and now lives in Austin, Texas. He is the author, most recently, of The Last Painting of Sara de Vos, an acclaimed bestseller in Australia and the US. Dominic's other novels are: The Beautiful Miscellaneous, The Mercury Visions of Louis Daguerre and Bright and Distant Shores. Dominic's awards include the Dobie Paisano Fellowship from the Texas Institute of Letters, the Sherwood Anderson Fiction Prize, the Gulf Coast Fiction Prize, and a new works grant from the Australia Council for the Arts. His fiction has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and been shortlisted for The Age Book of the Year and the Vance Palmer Prize.

Young Dark Emu by Bruce Pascoe

V5axLC3I8PLXCy_GAKqJQ3wShaGi_4PmVhFoz0jhhKxMxw``.jpeg

Age range 10+ The highly-anticipated junior version of Bruce Pascoe’s multi award-winning book. Bruce Pascoe has collected a swathe of literary awards for Dark Emu and now he has brought together the research and compelling first person accounts in a book for younger readers. Using the accounts of early European explorers, colonists and farmers, Bruce Pascoe compellingly argues for a reconsideration of the hunter-gatherer label for pre-colonial Aboriginal Australians. He allows the reader to see Australia as it was before Europeans arrived - a land of cultivated farming areas, productive fisheries, permanent homes, and an understanding of the environment and its natural resources that supported thriving villages across the continent. Young Dark Emu - A Truer History asks young readers to consider a different version of Australia’s history pre-European colonisation.

download (1).jpg

From the author of the international mega-bestseller The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F∗ck comes a counterintuitive guide to the problems of hope. We live in an interesting time. Materially, everything is the best it's ever been-we are freer, healthier and wealthier than any people in human history. Yet, somehow everything seems to be irreparably and horribly f∗cked-the planet is warming, governments are failing, economies are collapsing, and everyone is perpetually offended on Twitter. At this moment in history, when we have access to technology, education and communication our ancestors couldn't even dream of, so many of us come back to an overriding feeling of hopelessness. What's going on If anyone can put a name to our current malaise and help fix it, it's Mark Manson

Before long, his off-the-cuff voice was resonating with a much broader audience via his brilliantly counter-intuitive essays on happiness.

Moorish by Ben Tish

The bold spices and sun-soaked exotic tastes of North Africa and the Arabic world collided with the characterful food of the Mediterranean when the Moors invaded. It was this glorious fusion of flavours that first seduced British chef, writer and restaurateur, Ben Tish, and sent his cooking on a new course.
Moorish is a collection of authentic recipes inspired by Ben's passion for the region, along with a few of his own twists and interpretations. He has divided the book into chapters based around the way he likes to cook at home from quick and refreshing light bites and his notorious barbecue food to lazy brunches and slow-cooked dishes that fill the house with evocative scents of the Mediterranean.

Ben's love of food started at an early age in the seaside town of Skegness. Very busy parents meant that Ben spent a lot of time with his Jewish grandmother, a feeder if ever there was one and a brilliant home cook. 

At 19-years-old he moved to London to work as a 3rd commis chef at The Ritz, London. A baptism of fire ensued over the next two years followed by a move to the ultra cool restaurant Coast, where Ben worked with Jason Atherton and Stephen Terry. After working at a number of Michelin-starred restaurants Ben found himself at a high-end Italian restaurant in London's Mayfair which proved to be the turning point for his style. The kitchen's focus was on seasonality, with impeccable produce treated with the utmost respect. From there Ben then spent time at the remote Crinan Hotel in the West Highlands of Scotland where the supplier relationship was paramount and the only way to work was to be completely in tune with the seasons. Returning to London, Ben joined the Salt Yard group, which focused on the cuisines of Spain and Italy, serving tapas-style dishes with a modern spin. As Chef Director he went onto open several award-winning restaurants with the group.

In 2018 Ben joined the Stafford London as their Culinary Director, overseeing all the food operations, and this year Ben will be leading on new restaurant projects with the Stafford, focusing on his love of Mediterranean cooking. 
This is Ben's third cookbook, having previously written Salt Yard Food and Wine (2012) and Grill, Smoke, BBQ (2016). He regularly appears on TV including shows such as Saturday Kitchen, Masterchef and Sunday Brunch
Ben lives in East London with his wife Nykeeta and his French bulldog Piglet.

Outside Looking In by T. C. Boyle

It is Harvard in the early 1960s. Just off campus, Dr Timothy Leary plays host for his PhD students, laying on a spread of cocktails, pizza and LSD. Among the guests is Fitzhugh Loney, a psychology student, and his librarian wife Joanie. Married young, and both diligently and unglamorously toiling to support their son, they are not the sort of people one would expect to be seduced by the nascent drug culture. But their nights on LSD prove so extraordinary so revelatory, so earth-shattering, so downright seductive that Fitzhugh and Joanie are soon captive to the whims of the charismatic and subversive Dr Tim.

Follow Fitzhugh and Joanie on their quest for transcendence, as sultry Mexican nights at Hotel Catalina give way to a ramshackle mansion in upstate New York, where thirty devotees students, wives and children play out the final act of a terrible, beautiful experiment.

Join us, won't you? It's going to be one hell of a trip. 

T. C. Boyle is the New York Times-bestselling author of sixteen novels including The Tortilla CurtainDrop CitySan Miguel and The Terranauts, and eleven collections of stories. His work has been translated into twenty-six languages.
