The Street Sweeper
*BiP Price $27.95
From the civil rights struggle in the United States to the Nazi crimes against humanity in Europe, there are more stories than people passing each other every day on the bustling streets of every crowded city. Only some survive to become history. Recently released from prison, Lamont Williams, an African American probationary janitor in a Manhattan hospital and father of a little girl he can’t locate, strikes up an unlikely friendship with an elderly patient, a Holocaust survivor who had been a prisoner in Auschwitz-Birkenau. A few kilometres uptown, Australian historian Adam Zignelik, an untenured Columbia professor, finds both his career and his long-term romantic relationship falling apart. As these two men try to survive in early twenty-first-century New York, history comes to life in ways neither of them could have foreseen. Two very different paths—Lamont’s and Adam’s—lead to one greater story as The Street Sweeper spans the twentieth century to the present, and spans the globe from New York to Melbourne, Chicago to Auschwitz.
*BiP Price $29.95
The year is 1984. Aomame sits in a taxi on the expressway in Tokyo. She has been on a topsecret mission, and her next job will lead her to encounter the apparently superhuman founder of a religious cult. Meanwhile, Tengo is leading a nondescript life but wishes to become a writer. He inadvertently becomes involved in a strange affair surrounding a literary prize to which a mysterious seventeen-year-old girl has submitted her remarkable first novel. Aomame’s and Tengo’s stories influence one another, at times by accident and at times intentionally, as the two come closer and closer to intertwining. As 1Q84 accelerates towards its conclusion, both are pursued by persons and forces they do not know and cannot understand. Books 1,2 and 3 all in one volume.
2011 Man Booker Prize Winner
The Sense of an Ending
Tony Webster and his clique first met Adrian Finn at school. Sex-hungry and book-hungry, they would navigate the girlless sixth form together, trading in affectations, in-jokes, rumour and wit. Maybe Adrian was a little more serious than the others, certainly more intelligent, but they all swore to stay friends for life. Now Tony is in middle age. He has had a career and a single marriage, a calm divorce. He’s certainly never tried to hurt anybody. Memory, though, is imperfect. It can always throw up surprises, as a lawyer’s letter is about to prove. The Sense of an Ending is the story of one man coming to terms with the mutable past. Laced with trademark precision, dexterity and insight, it is the work of one of the world’s most distinguished writers.
The Prague Cemetery
Nineteenth-century Europe—from Turin to Prague to Paris—abounds with the ghastly and the mysterious. Conspiracies rule history. Every nation has its own secret service, perpetrating forgeries, plots, and massacres. From the unification of Italy to the Paris Commune to the Dreyfus Affair to The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, Europe is in tumult. But what if, behind all of these conspiracies both real and imagined, lay one lone man? In Umberto Eco’s own words: ‘The fact that history can be quite so devious may cause the reader’s brow to become lightly beaded with sweat. He will and suspect that these things could happen again today. In fact, they may be happening in that very moment. And he will think, as I do: “They are among us…”

BiP SUMMER READING GUIDE 2011-12
Dear Books in Print Customers,
This year has been a challenging one for the Australian book trade. The demise of REDgroup Retail, comprised mainly of Borders and Angus & Robertson bookstores, led many people to forecast the end of retail bookselling in Australia. How wrong they were! Unlike many other countries Australia has a vibrant independent bookselling scene and independent bookstores are doing their best to fill the gap left by the closure of so many chain stores. At Books in Print we have been busy all year as usual. The Australian Booksellers Association has also taken on board the IndieBound programme from the US in order to help independent booksellers achieve a higher profile. Books in Print is a member of the IndieBound initiative. Supporting local, independent businesses means that dollars, jobs and choices stay local, creating strong, unique communities. 2012 will be a busy year at Books in Print. Early in the New Year we will launch our new website www.booksinprint.com.au, which will provide a full range of services for our customers, who will also be able to purchase e-books through the site as a result of our partnership with one of the major on-line providers. Our new computer system will enable us to communicate more effectively and more frequently with customers. We also plan to introduce a series of author events which will be run jointly with Jeffreys Books. The first joint event will be held on Wednesday 30th November, when our guest will be Elliot Perlman, who will talk about his new book The Street Sweeper. Further details are available from Books in Print and Jeffreys Books. The publishing programme for the festive season this year has a strong Australian flavour. There are new novels from major Australian authors, including Elliot Perlman (The Street Sweeper), Kate Grenville (Sarah Thornhill), Alex Miller (Autumn Laing), Frank Moorhouse (Cold Light) and a new collection of short stories from Janette Turner Hospital (Forecast: Turbulence). Australian chefs are also providing a wide range of fabulous cuisines from Luke Nguyen’s Indochine and Frank Comorra’s Movida Cocina to Greg and Lucy Malouf’s New Middle Eastern Food and Christine Manfield’s Tasting India. There is also a great range of history and biography titles as well as fantastic books for children of all ages. We have produced this Summer Reading Guide to illustrate the range of books available. There are many, many more titles at Books in Print which will provide entertaining reading for the summer, so please drop in and talk to our staff and children’s specialists about ideas for gifts for the festive season. Please note that although we will do our best to keep the widest range of titles in stock, all titles listed are subject to availability. We hope that you all enjoy a very happy festive season. From Chris, Deborah and the team at Books in Print.

The Marriage Plot
Jeffrey Eugenides *BiP Price $24.95 pb
Alex Miller *BiP Price $32.95 hb
Autumn Laing reflects on her tumultuous relationship with the abundantly talented Pat Donlon and the effect it had on her husband, on Pat's wife and the body of work which launched Pat's career. When Autumn Laing seduces Pat Donlon she not only compromises the trusting love she has with her husband, Arthur, she also steals the future from Pat's young and beautiful wife, Edith, and their unborn child. Fifty-three years later, cantankerous, engaging, unrestrainable 85-year-old Autumn is shocked to find within herself a powerful need for redemption. As she begins to tell her story, she writes, 'They are all dead and I am old and skeleton-gaunt. This is where it began...'
The Marriage Plot focuses primarily on three characters, who all graduate from Brown University in 1982. Madeleine Hanna, from a “normal” household in New Jersey, becomes enamoured of Leonard, a brilliant but moody student with bipolar disorder, in their Semiotics course. Mitchell, a Religious Studies major, is also attracted to Madeleine but she finds his reticence both disturbing and incomprehensible. After graduation, Leonard and Madeleine live together and eventually marry. Meanwhile Mitchell, who takes his major seriously, travels to India where he volunteers to work with the dying in Calcutta. But Mitchell’s road to self-discovery eventually returns him to the United States and opens another opportunity for love that complicates Madeleine’s life.

When Toller’s story arrives on Ruth’s doorstep their shared past takes Ruth back to those friends who predicted the brutality of the Nazis and gave everything they had to stop them. All That I Am is an exploration of bravery and betrayal, of the risks and sacrifices some people make for their beliefs, and of heroism hidden in the most unexpected places.

Set in Sydney over a single day, Animal People traces a watershed day in the life of Stephen, who is aimless, unhappy, unfulfilled, and without a clue as to how to make his life better. His dead-end job, his demanding family, his oppressive feelings for his girlfriend and the pitiless city itself all threaten to come crashing down on him. The day will bring untold surprises and disasters, but will also show him—perhaps too late—that only love can set him free.

The Sea is My Brother: The Lost Novel
Jack Kerouac $49.95 hb
Described by Kerouac as being about “man’s simple revolt from society as it is, with the inequalities, frustration, and selfinflicted agonies”, the 158-page handwritten manuscript of The Sea is My Brother was Kerouac’s first novel, but was not published during his lifetime. He wrote in his notes for the project that the characters were “the vanishing American, the American Indian, the last of the pioneers, the last of the hoboes”. The novel, which Kerouac wrote during his years as a merchant seaman, follows the fortunes of Wesley Martin, a man who Kerouac said “loved the sea with a strange, lonely love; the sea is his brother.”

Charles Frazier $32.99 pb
Luce is a solitary young woman, caretaker of an old lodge on the edge of an isolated lake in the mountains of North Carolina. When her beautiful, gentle sister Lily is murdered, Luce inherits her two wild young children. Neither of them has spoken since witnessing their mother’s brutal murder. Luce knows that if the children come to harm under her care she will never be able to forgive herself, but it takes all her energy to keep them away from a world of dangers: water, fire, axes, snakes, and Lily’s husband, a chilling killer who is missing a horde of cash, and thinks the twins must have it.
David Guterson $29.99 pb
A sweeping, propulsive, darkly humorous new novel by the author of Snow Falling on Cedars: a story of destiny, desire, and destruction that reimagines Sophocles’s Oedipus Rex for our own era. In Seattle in 1962, Walter Cousins, a mild-mannered actuary, makes the biggest error of his life. He sleeps with Diane Burroughs, the sexy, not-quite-legal British au pair who’s taking care of his children for the summer. Diane gets pregnant and leaves their baby on a doorstep, but not before turning the tables on Walter and setting in motion a tragedy of epic proportions. Their orphaned child, adopted by an adoring family and named Edward Aaron King, grows up to become a billionaire Internet tycoon and an international celebrity—the “King of Search”—who unknowingly, but inexorably, hurtles through life toward a fate he may have no power to shape.
Daniel Stein, Interpreter
Ludmila Ulitskaya $32.95 pb
Ludmila Ulitsjkaya’s fourth novel tells the ‘true story’ of the improbable, heroic life of a Polish Jew who translates for the Gestapo, saves part of a ghetto, escapes execution, hides in a convent, converts to Catholicism, joins the partisans, emigrates to Israel, and refounds the Church of St. James, a community for which he performs mass in Hebrew. He offends church officials and violates orthodoxies, but Daniel is a sort of saint. Stein addresses life’s great challenges and the complexities of faith, though not everyone is pleased with his unorthodox views. Ulitskaya’s story of one man’s devotion to bridging the divide between Christianity and Judaism in the Holy Land raises complex theological, moral, and emotional questions. Despite the intrusion of some unpleasant historical facts, that good triumphs over evil and over truth is the book’s truism.

It is a love story of beauty and sadness, a chronicle of dreams ‘turned inside out’, and miracles that never last, framed against a world both tender and unspeakably hard. Written in luminous prose and with an deep affinity for the landscape the book describes, Foal’s Bread is Gillian Mears ‘ first novel in sixteen years.
The Deadly Touch of the Tigress
Ian Hamilton $29.99 pb
Ava Lee is a petite young Chinese-Canadian forensic accountant who works for an elderly Hong Kong-based 'Uncle'.

Her tremendous skill at the deadly martial art of bak mei puts fear into the hearts of the unscrupulous and unwary. This is a novel full of suspense, with an equally fascinating heroine.
The Impossible Dead
Ian Rankin $32.99 pb
Malcolm Fox and his team from Internal Affairs have been sent to investigate whether fellow policemen have covered for a corrupt cop. What should be a simple job is soon complicated by intimations of conspiracy. As the investigation gains momentum a trail of revelations leads Fox back to 1985, a year of great turmoil in British political life.

Apricot Jam and Other Stories
Alexander Solzhenitsyn $24.95 pb

Years later, the same professor finds himself arrested and, in a striking twist of fate, his student becomes his interrogator. In “Nastenka,” two young women with the same name lead routine, ordered lives—until the Revolution exacts radical change on them both. Available for the first time in English these short stories will bring a new audience to the work of the Nobel Prize-winning Russian author who was an eloquent and acclaimed opponent of government oppression.
Alice Hoffman $29.99 pb

The lives of these four complex and fiercely independent women intersect in the desperate days of the siege. All are dovekeepers, and all are also keeping secrets—about who they are, where they come from, who fathered them, and who they love. The Dovekeepers is Alice Hoffman’s masterpiece.

Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography
Walter Isaacson *BiP Price $34.95
A Private Life
Michael Kirby *BiP Price $29.95
Michael Kirby is one of Australia’s most admired public figures. Even those who disagree with him have been moved by the courage required of him to come out as a high-profile gay man. This is a collection of reminiscences in which we can discover the private Michael Kirby. He opens up as never before about his early life, about being gay, about his forty-two year relationship with Johan van Vloten, about his religious beliefs and even about his youthful infatuation with James Dean. Beautifully written, reflective and generous, this is a memoir that Michael Kirby’s many admirers have been waiting for.
Based on many interviews with Jobs conducted over two years Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and intense personality of the creative entrepreneur whose passion and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. Jobs stands as the ultimate icon of inventiveness and applied imagination. He knew that the best way to create value in the twenty-first century was to connect creativity with technology. His friends, foes, and colleagues provide an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry, and compulsion for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted.
Clarence Darrow: Attorney for the Damned John A. Farrell $39.95
Clarence Darrow left a promising career as a railroad lawyer during the tumultuous Gilded Age in order to champion poor workers, blacks, and social and political outcasts against big business, Jim Crow, and corrupt officials. He became famous defending union leader Eugene Debs in the landmark Pullman Strike case and went from one headline case to the next—until he was nearly crushed by an indictment for bribing a jury. He redeemed himself in Dayton, Tennessee, defending schoolteacher John Scopes in the “Monkey Trial,” cementing his place in history. Now, John A. Farrell draws on previously unpublished correspondence and memoirs to offer a candid account of Darrow’s divorce, affairs, disastrous finances and explosive revelations of shady tactics he used in his own trial for bribery. Clarence Darrow is a sweeping, surprising portrait of a legendary legal mind.

Chanel: An Intimate Life

Sybil Exposed uses investigative journalism to tell a fascinating tale that reads like fiction but is fact. She is the first person to have examined all of the archive of papers, records, photos and tapes and to provide proof that the story was an elaborate fraud—albeit one that the perpetrators may have half-believed.

With the cooperation of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, which gave the authors access to its wealth of primary materials, Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith have written what Leo Jansen, Curator of the Museum and Editor of the Van Gogh Letters Project, has called “The definitive biography of Van Gogh for decades to come.” This new account reshapes the landscape of Van Gogh’s life and death.

The Borgias: History’s Most Notorious Dynasty
Mary Hollingsworth $49.99 hb The Borgia family of Renaissance Italy has become
a byword for pride, lust, cruelty, avarice, splendour and venomous intrigue. Its members have inspired abomination and fascination in almost equal measure. Of Spanish origin, the Borgias came to prominence in the Italy of the 15th century, at a time when the spiritual values of the medieval Church were being swept aside by the worldly secularism of the Renaissance. They also became notorious for licentiousness, venality and indeed all forms of immorality, while at the same time their patronage of the arts helped to bring about some of the greatest artistic masterpieces of the Renaissance.

Into The Unknown: Ludwig Leichhardt
John Bailey $34.99 pb
Ludwig Leichhardt is Australia’s most intriguing explorer. Born and educated in Prussia in the early 19th century, Leichhardt was a polymath, a man fascinated by the natural world and possessed by a longing for adventure and exploration. Australia was then almost completely unexplored apart from the colonies clustered on its coastline. It was a continent and a time ripe for amateur naturalists and explorers, and Leichhardt took up the challenge. His expeditions were to begin in triumph, then dwindle into acrimony, despair and misery before finally ending in disappearance and death, giving rise to one of the enduring mysteries of Australian history.

Australian Poetry Since 1788
Geoffrey Lehmann & Robert Gray $69.95 hb
This landmark anthology of Australian poetry, edited by two of Australia’s foremost poets, is the first of its kind for Australia. Included here are Australia’s major poets, and lesser-known but equally affecting ones, and all manifestations of Australian poetry since 1788, from concrete poems to prose poems, from the cerebral to the naïve, from the humorous to the confessional, and from formal to free verse. One of the high points is the translation of some striking Aboriginal song poems. Containing over 1000 poems from 170 Australian poets, this careful re-evaluation of Australian poetry makes this a superb book that can be read and enjoyed over a lifetime.
A History of Tasmania
Henry Reynolds $39.95 pb
Henry Reynolds charts the history of Tasmania from the arrival of European maritime expeditions in the late eighteenth century, through to the modern day. By presenting the perspectives of both Indigenous Tasmanians and British settlers, he provides an original exploration of these first fraught encounters. He offers an astute analysis of the island's economic and demographic reality, noting that this facilitated the survival of a rich heritage of colonial architecture unique in Australia, and allowed the resident population to foster a powerful web of kinship. Reynolds' remarkable capacity to empathise with the characters of his chronicle makes this a powerful, engaging and moving account of Tasmania's unique position within Australian history.
After Words: The Post-Prime Ministerial Speeches | Paul Keating
*BiP Price $49.95
All the speeches in After Words are the work of one eye and one mind: former Prime Minister Paul Keating. Subject to subject, idea to idea, the speeches are related in a wider construct, which is the way Paul Keating has viewed and thought about the world. The speeches reveal the breadth and depth of his interests—be they cultural, historical, or policy-focused—dealing with subjects as broad as international relations, economic policy and politics. After Words contains an analytic commentary on Australia’s recent social and economic repositioning, in the minds of many, by its principal architect.
Among The Islands: Adventure in the Pacific
Tim Flannery $32.95 pb
Twenty-five years ago, a young curator from the Australian Museum in Sydney set out to research the fauna of the Pacific Islands. Starting with one of the most inaccessible islands in Melanesia—Woodlark, in the Trobriands Group—that young scientist found himself ghost-whispering, snake wrestling, and plunged waist-deep into a sludge of maggot-infested faeces in search of a small bat that turned out not to be earth-shatteringly interesting. With accounts of discovering, naming and sometimes eating new mammal species; being thwarted or aided by local customs; and historic scientific expeditions, Tim Flannery takes us on an enthralling journey through some of the most diverse and spectacular environments on earth.

Karen McCartney $79.99 hb
Iconic Australian Houses 70/80/90
The Sweet Spot: How Australia Made It’s Own Luck and Could Now Throw It All Away | Peter Hartcher $29.95 pb
In The Sweet Spot Peter Hartcher shows how a convict colony could have become a banana republic but didn’t, how Austravlia came through the global financial crisis—it wasn’t just the mining boom—and how we could now throw our success away if we don’t recognise our strengths and demand true leadership of our politicians. At a time when the authoritarian success story of China is strong, Australia offers a better model: a democratic success story. On some of the most important and apparently intractable problems of the modern world, Australia, believe it or not, is as good as it gets.
Karen McCartney has compiled a selection of significant examples of Australian houses of the 1970s, 80s and 90s. Featured architects include Richard Leplastrier, Glenn Murcutt and Wood Marsh. The author places the period in social, historical and architectural context, before each of the selected houses is individually reviewed. The relationship between the architect and owner is discussed, as is the linking of the building to its site, materials and architectural detailing. Each study includes a feature on the interior decoration and a discussion of designers and manufacturers of iconic furniture, fittings and fabrics. The book offers invaluable advice for anyone wanting to capture the style of the period in their own homes.
Lisbon: War in the Shadows of the City of Light
Neill Lochery $35.00 pb
Throughout World War II Lisbon was at the centre of world attention. The only European city in which both the Allies and the Axis powers openly operated, it was also a temporary home to over one million refugees seeking passage to America; and a host of spies, secret police, bankers, prominent Jews, escaped POWs, and black marketeers. Historian Neill Lochery’s portrait of the city draws on records recently uncovered from Portuguese secret-police and banking archives. This is a gripping tale of intrigue, betrayal, opportunism, and double-dealing, all of which took place under the watchful eyes of the Portugese secret police.
Vanished Kingdoms: The History of Half-Forgotten Europe
Norman Davies $59.95 hb
Europe’s past is littered with kingdoms, empires and republics which no longer exist but which were some of the most important entities of their day: “the Empire of Aragon”, which dominated the western Mediterranean in the thirteenth century, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the largest country in Europe for part of the eighteenth century. This book shows the reader how to peer through the cracks of mainstream history-writing. The histories of the lost echo across the centuries, mixed in with more familiar sounds. One of the purposes of this book is to help us hear them again more clearly, and appreciate where they came from.
Paul Ham $55.00 hb
The atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki killed more than 100,000 instantly, mostly women, children and the elderly. Many hundreds of thousands more succumbed to their horrific injuries later, or slowly perished of radiation-related sickness. Yet the bombs were “our least abhorrent choice”, American leaders claimed at the time. Paul Ham challenges this view, arguing that the bombings, when Japan was on its knees, were the culmination of a strategic Allied air war on enemy civilians that began in Germany. He also gives powerful witness to the destruction through the eyes of eighty survivors, from 12-year-olds forced to work in war factories to wives and children who faced it alone.
Foundation: A History of England
Peter Ackroyd $34.99 pb
The first volume in Peter Ackroyd’s six-part history of England ranges from the time that England was first settled, more than 15,000 years ago, to the death in 1509 of King Henry VII, the first Tudor monarch. Ackroyd provides glimpses of Neolithic England, Roman rule, the Dark Ages and moves on to the glories of medieval England: the great churches and monasteries and its common law. His approach covers both the history of royalty and their battles and also details of everyday life as it was lived: the houses people lived in, their forms of worship and trade and their understanding of the world about them.
Jerusalem, Jerusalem: How the Ancient City Ignited our Modern World
James Carroll $35.00 pb
For millennia, Jerusalem has been the meeting point of religion and culture, traditionalism and modernity, and the apparently inevitable violence that erupts over a particular faith’s exclusive claim to the city. James Carroll gives a balanced account of the city of King David—one centred on the concept of “sacred violence” as a path to redemption, a vision long engendered by Jerusalem and all that it represents. He also analyses and interprets the intersections of history, theology, philosophy, and popular culture in a way that offers hope of an emerging religion that “celebrates life, not death.”
Geoffrey Blainey $45.00 hb
A Short History of Christianity
A Short History of Christianity vividly describes many of the significant players in the religion's rise and fall through the ages, from Jesus himself to Francis of Assisi, Martin Luther, Francis Xavier, and John Wesley. Geoffrey Blainey takes the reader into the world of the mainstream worshippers—the housewives, the stonemasons—and traces the rise of the critics of Christ and his followers. Eminently readable, and written with Blainey's characteristic curiosity and story-telling skill, this book often places Christianity at the centre of world history. Will it remain near the centre? Blainey points out again and again that its history is a much-repeated story of ups and downs.
Leningrad: Tragedy of a City Under Siege
Anna Reid $49.99 hb
On 8 September 1941 Leningrad was surrounded. The siege would not be lifted for two and a half years and as many as two million Soviet lives would be lost. Had the city fallen, the history of the Second World War would have been very different. Leningrad is a gripping narrative history interwoven with personal stories. Anna Reid answers many of the previously unanswered questions about the siege: how good a job did Leningrad’s leadership do? How much was Stalin’s and Moscow’s wariness of westernleaning Leningrad a contributing factor? How close did Leningrad come to falling into German hands? And, above all, how did those who lived through it survive?
Double Entry: How the Merchants of Venice Shaped the Modern World
Jane Gleeson-White $29.99 pb
The rise and metamorphosis of double-entry bookkeeping is one of history’s best-kept secrets and one of its most important untold tales. It made possible the wealth and cultural efflorescence that was the Renaissance. It also enabled capitalism to flourish, so changing the economies of the world forever. Over several centuries it grew into a sophisticated system of numbers which now governs the global economy. As Guardian journalist Jonathan Watts wrote in October 2010: “So it has come to this. The global biodiversity crisis is so severe that brilliant scientists, political leaders, eco-warriors, and religious gurus can no longer save us from ourselves. The military are powerless. But there may be one last hope for life on earth: accountants.”
A More Perfect Heaven
Dava Sobel $35.00 hb
During the 1530s, rumours of a potentially revolutionary theory of how the heavens worked began to spread throughout Europe. The architect of this theory was a Polish cleric named Nicolaus Copernicus. In 1539 a young German mathematician, Georg Joachim Rheticus, met Copernicus. Rheticus arranged for the publication of De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres)—legend has it Copernicus received a copy on his deathbed. This book would forever change the way we thought about our place in the universe. Dava Sobel chronicles the history of the Copernican Revolution, relating the story of astronomy from Aristotle to the Middle Ages.
Peter Englund $49.99 hb
The Beauty and the Sorrow
Award-winning historian Peter Englund describes the experiences of war of twenty ordinary people from around the world. He explores the everyday aspects of war: not only the tragedy and horror, but also the absurdity, monotony and even beauty. Two of these twenty will perish, two will become prisoners of war, two will become celebrated heroes and two others end up as physical wrecks. One of them will go mad; another will never hear a shot fired. Following soldiers and sailors, nurses and government workers from Britain, Russia, Germany, Australia and South America, Englund reconstructs their feelings, impressions, experiences and moods. His book brings this epoch-making event back to its smallest component, the individual.

Into The Silence: The Great War, Mallory and the Conquest of Everest
Wade Davis $35.00 pb
On June 6, 1924, two men set out from a camp perched at 23,000 feet just below the lip of Mount Everest’s North Col. George Mallory was Britain’s finest climber; Sandy Irvine was a young Oxford scholar with little previous mountaineering experience. Neither of them returned. Wade Davis vividly re-creates the British climbers’ epic attempts to scale Mount Everest in the early 1920s. Davis shows how the exploration originated in nineteenth-century imperial ambitions, and he goes far beyond the Himalayas to the trenches of World War I, where Mallory and his generation found their world utterly shattered. The Everest expeditions, led by these scions of Britain’s elite, emerged as a symbol of national redemption and hope.
A Point of View
Clive James $32.99 pb

Ranulph Fiennes $32.99 pb
In My Heroes Ranulph Fiennes writes about the people who have inspired him—from explorers to policemen, families to freedom fighters. Fiennes is often asked: ‘Who inspired you to do all the crazy things you’ve done?’ For the first time he explores this idea by revealing his own personal heroes and what lessons their actions have taught him in his own often hazardous profession. This book describes the extraordinary and often horrific events that led to these ordinary individuals becoming Ranulph’s great heroes; from a polar survivor to a knifed-and-beaten policeman, from a woman missionary to a Special Forces soldier, Fiennes describes the people whose courage has set an example to the courageous.
Boomerang: Adventures of a Financial Disaster Tourist
Michael Lewis $39.95 hb
How exactly did the U.S. financial crisis come to hit the rest of the world in the face too? Michael Lewis took a trip around the European countries most affected to see how things had gone wrong. The cheap credit that rolled across the planet between 2002 and 2008 was more than a simple financial phenomenon: it was temptation, offering entire societies the chance to reveal aspects of their characters they could not normally afford to indulge. Icelanders wanted to stop fishing and become investment bankers. The Greeks wanted to turn their country into a piñata stuffed with cash and allow as many citizens as possible to take a whack. Michael Lewis’s investigation of bubbles across Europe is brilliantly, sadly hilarious.

As Mawson and his men make their home on the windiest place on earth and prepare for their own record-breaking treks, the stories of Amundsen and Scott dramatically play out.

The Lost Photographs of Captain Scott
David M Wilson $55.00 hb
Captain Scott perished with four of his fellow explorers on their return from the South Pole in March 1912.

These photographs have finally been resurrected and are a humbling testament to the men whose graves still lie unmarked in the vastness of the Great Alone.

David Malouf returns to one of the most fundamental questions and gives it a modern twist: what makes for a happy life? He discusses new and old ways to talk about contentment and the self. He returns to the 'highest wisdom' of the classics, looks at how, thanks to Thomas Jefferson's way with words, happiness became a 'right', and examines joy in the flesh as depicted by Rubens and Rembrandt. “How is it, when the chief sources of human unhappiness, of misery and wretchedness, have largely been removed from our lives … that happiness still eludes so many of us?”
