    Through ten decades and across three continents, The Ash Museum is an intergenerational story of loss, migration and the search for somewhere to feel at home.1944. The Battle of Kohima. James Ash dies leaving behind two families: his ‘wife’ Josmi and two children, Jay and Molly, and his parents and sister in England who know nothing about his Indian family.2012. Emmie is raising her own daughter, Jasmine, in a world she wants to be very different from the racist England of her childhood. Her father, Jay, doesn’t even have a photograph of the mother he lost and still refuses to discuss his life in India. Emmie finds comfort in the local museum — a treasure trove of another family’s stories and artefacts.Little does Emmie know that with each generation, her own story holds secrets and fascinations that she could only dream of.'In her luminous fourth novel, Rebecca Smith has managed to distil ten decades of a fractured family history into a resonant and tightly woven structure that takes us on an extraordinary journey. It is a memory bank of treasures and as much a moving story about the legacy of Colonialism as it is a reflection on contemporary life and values. Her wonderful perspectives and closely observed (and often, very funny) details about those lives, past and present, are a triumph.' Christie Hickman, Books Editor, S Magazine'A beautifully written, multi-generational tale full of poignant themes, vibrant setting packed with observation and characters you will want to be friends with.' Ella Dove, novelist and Commissioning Editor at Good Housekeeping, Prima and Red magazines'What a fabulous new novel from a brilliant writer. Spinning through time and space, The Ash Museum is another country, filled with lively, emotional set-pieces, turned like physical memories from one generation to another. Endlessly exciting in its filmic, short, sharp scenes, grippingly narrative in its interwoven tales of loss and identity and home, Rebecca Smith’s book demonstrates, yet again, her gift for vivid humour and deep empathy, all stirred up in her trademark scintillating prose.' Philip Hoare, winner of the 2009 Samuel Johnson Prize for Non-fiction'A timely and acutely observed novel about family and the circle of life. Touching, universal and utterly relatable, as we all search for our own view just like Jay did.' Carmel Harrington, author of My Pear-Shaped Life, A Thousand Roads Home

    'Kim Fu skillfully measures how long and loudly one formative moment can reverberate' Celeste NgA group of young girls descend on a sleepaway camp where their days are filled with swimming lessons, friendship bracelets, and songs by the fire. Filled with excitement and nervous energy, they set off on an overnight kayaking trip to a nearby island. But before the night is over, they find themselves stranded, with no adults to help them survive or guide them home.The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore traces these five girls through and beyond this fateful trip. We see them through successes and failures, loving relationships and heartbreaks; we see what it means to find, and define, oneself, and the ways in which the same experience is refracted through different people. A portrait of friendship and of the families we build for ourselves, and the pasts we can't escape.What Reviewers and Readers Say:'A propulsive storyteller, using clear and cutting prose' The New York Times'Fu precisely renders the banal humiliations of childhood, the chilling steps humans take to survive, and the way time warps memory' Publishers Weekly'An ambitious and dynamic portrayal of the harm humans — even young girls — can do' Kirkus Review'The first truly great novel I've read in 2018… As intricately fashioned and as bold-hearted as books by novelists who've been publishing for decades' Seattle Review of Books'Fu offers an unblinking view of the social and emotional survival of the fittest that all too often marks the female coming of age' Toronto Star'These portraits of sisterhood, motherhood, daughterhood, wifehood, girlfriendhood, independent womanhood, and other female-identified-hoods sing and groan and scream with complexity and nuance, and they make me want to read her next ten books' The Stranger'To say this is a story of survival is too simple… Fu avoids the obvious and tidy, allowing us to imagine what happens next' Winnipeg Free Press'I loved it for its portrayal of each of the girls… and for showing that a single incident can colour your entire life' Canadian Living'A thoroughly entertaining, complex novel full of intricate insights into human nature' Quill & Quire

    NEW UPDATED EDITION celebrating 50 years of Dr Who.

    Who Goes There is the sequel to Nick’s hugely popular Doctor Who memoir, Dalek I Loved You. It’s a travel book with Doctor Who at its core. Nick travels England and Wales, seeking locations used in the show, both Classic (pre-relaunch) and New.

    Being an odd kind of show, its locations too are odd. This is no glamorous trip. Dungeness Nuclear Power Station, anyone? A flooded china clay pit in Cornwall? As he travels, so Nick discovers another side to our well-trodden country, which is no less evocative. Then he goes to the pub. As in Dalek I Loved You, the travel writing is backed up by Nick’s childhood reminiscences and contemporary musings.

    A companion website offers photographs from the trip, a Google map of the locations and details of the nearest pub. In this innovative way, readers are invited to follow in his footsteps. Scariest of all, given two other books in the pipeline (both humour books, for Arcturus Publishing), Nick has just 21 days in which to write it. Really. Who Goes There isn’t just for Who fans — it’s for anyone who fancies a trip off the beaten path. And a very funny book.

    … The window’s so small I can’t see what happens next. But what I do know is that Kim is dead. And I know this, too — that I helped to kill her. Kim, my lovely, only, best friend.

    Five years ago Maura fled life in Dowerby and took on a new identity, desperately trying to piece her life back together and escape the dark clouds that plagued her past. But then a reporter tracks her down, and persuades her to tell her story, putting her own life in danger once again.

    Layer upon layer of violence and deceit make up the full picture for Maura to see and the reporter to reveal. Hidden secrets are uncovered that have been left to settle, for far too long. But in life some things can’t be left unsaid, and eventually the truth will out. Whatever the consequences.

    Seventeen-year-old schoolboy Kim is an idle drifter at one of Britain's most extraordinary institutions, Eton College — crammed with over a thousand boys and not a girl in sight. His head is full of the Falklands War and a possible army career, until the day he hears his new piano teacher, the beautiful but pained India, playing Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier. Kim's life is destined never to be the same again. An intensely passionate affair develops and he wallows in the wild and unaccustomed thrill of first love. Twenty-five years on, Kim recalls that heady summer and how their fledgling relationship was so brutally snuffed out — finished off by his enemies, by the constraints of Eton, and by his own withering jealousy. “The Well-Tempered Clavier” is the bittersweet story of a life-changing love.

    One of the most famous ghost stories in literature, The Turn of the Screw earned its place in the annals of influential English novellas not for its qualities as a gothic ghost story, but rather for the many complex and subtle ways the reader can come to opposing conclusions as to tale’s very nature. Are the ghosts the governess sees real, or are they figments of her quiet insanity?
    The Turn of the Screw was originally published as a serial, and later went through many revisions by James himself. Though there aren’t any overt suggestion that James intended his novella to be anything but a simple ghost story, the ambiguity in the narrative has captured the imagination of generations of readers and critics.

    The Picture of Dorian Gray was first published as a serial in Lippencott’s Monthly Magazine, and the publishers thought it would so offend readers that they removed nearly 500 words without Wilde’s approval. Wilde soon expanded it and republished it as a novel, including a short preface justifying his art. Even though his contemporaries considered it so offensive that some argued for his prosecution, Dorian Gray today survives as a classic philosophical novel that explores themes of aestheticism and double lives. Couched in Wilde’s trademark cutting wit, Dorian Gray is still being adapted today, with Dorian and his smoldering portrait remaining cultural touchstones.

    'Breathtaking and moving' Awais Khan'Authentic and tender' Carmel HarringtonForgetting your past is one thing, but living with your present is entirely different.Twenty years ago, Helen is forced to give up her newborn baby, Lily. Now living alone in her small flat, there is a knock at the door and her bee, her Lily, is standing in front of her.Reuniting means the world to them both, but Lily has questions. Lots of them. Questions that Helen is unwilling to answer. In turn Helen watches helplessly as her headstrong daughter launches from relationship to relationship, from kind Andrew, the father of her daughter, to violent Kingsley who fathers her son.When it’s clear her grandbees are in danger, tangled up in her daughter’s damaging relationship, Helen must find the courage to step in, confronting the fears that haunt her the most.Told in Helen’s quirky voice Helen and the Grandbees addresses matters of identity, race and mental illness.'Breathtaking and moving, Helen and the Grandbees is a novel that bravely explores themes of familial discord, race and love in modern Britain. It is a book that immediately gripped me, compelling me to keep turning the pages well into the night. Morrall writes with confidence, poise, and a sense of humour to match. At times heartbreaking and heartwarming, this is a novel readers won't soon forget. A riveting debut.' Awais Khan, author of In the Company of Strangers'Alex can write; she has a way, a bit like playwright Mike Leigh, of zooming into the tiniest, seemingly mundane physical details of a situation, and in so doing, conveying the complexity, circularity and pattern of relationship and emotion. There is a humanity and a realism about her writing that Is far from commonplace despite the fact that when you read about the people and situations in her storytelling, they are instantly recognisable. Helen and the Grandbees is unbearably sad but because Alex manages the seemingly impossible feat of introducing hope right from the start it is possible to read and read on, with curiosity and enjoyment.' Dr Kairen Cullen, Writer and Psychologist'Authentic and tender. This utterly moving novel has created an unforgettable heroine in Helen. I held my breath as her troubled life unfolded and wanted only the best for her and her grandbees. This gorgeous book is not just an exploration of identity, race and mental health, but also one about family love, sacrifice and bravery. I loved it.' Carmel Harrington, International Bestselling Author'What an honor and privilege it has been to read Helen and the Grandbees. I enjoyed it immensely. Every single character was memorable and felt completely genuine. Alex Morrall is a hugely talented author, with a gift for drawing characters of vastly different ages and from various backgrounds and social classes… This is the type of novel that will stick with me for a long time.'

    ‘A truly brilliant debut’ Emily Mazzara, Books Ireland‘With sentences that you will want to cut out and keep, this is an intelligent, exquisitely crafted debut’ Fiona Mitchell‘Original and shattering’ Marianne LeeAs a sleepy town in rural Ireland starts to wake, a road subsides, trapping an early-morning bus and five passengers inside. Rescue teams struggle and as two are eventually saved, the bus falls deeper into the hole.Under the watchful eyes of the media, the lives of three people are teetering on the edge. And for those on the outside, from Nina, the reporter covering the story, to rescue liaison, Tim, and Richie, the driver pulled from the wreckage, each are made to look at themselves under the glare of the spotlight.When their world crumbles beneath their feet, they are forced to choose between what they cling to and what they must let go of.REVIEWS‘A beautiful exploration into trauma and the changes it can bring… A truly brilliant debut.’ Emily Mazzara, Books Ireland‘Gráinne Murphy’s storytelling is of wonderful quality in this tale that deals with grief, religion, relationships and our sense of belonging in the world. In Where the Edge Is, Murphy weaves the protagonists’ stories together with skill and tenderness, while creating an unsettling tension as to the fate of an unlucky few. A highly recommended debut.’ Juliet Conlin, author of Sisters of Berlin‘Grainne Murphy’s thoughtful, engrossing novel is a meditation on grief, identity and belonging. In her skilful hands, the diverse characters’ heart-breaking stories of loss and hope are woven around an underground nightmare in which the clock never stops ticking. A brilliant debut.’ Carolyn Kirby, author of The Conviction of Cora Burns‘There may be great sadness contained within the pages of this lyrical, poignant novel, but there is humour too… With sentences that you will want to cut out and keep, this is an intelligent, exquisitely crafted debut.’ Fiona Mitchell, author of The Swap and The Maid’s Room‘Poignant, thought-provoking and accomplished, Where the Edge Is reminded me that we are all human and we are all heroes. I loved it.’ Carol Mason, bestselling author of After You Left‘A dauntingly impressive first novel— a nuanced examination of raw private grief and public distress… Grainne Murphy is an observant and subtle writer whose prose is informed throughout with a hard-won authority.’ Paul Bailey, author of At the Jerusalem‘A powerful novel about survival, about still being there when others have gone and the terrible emotional toll that takes. The beautiful intimacy with which we get to know these characters and their inner workings contrasts with the bureaucratic process of responding to a crisis, so we end up somehow enthralled and horrified as the story unfolds in front of us.’ Dan Mooney, author of Me, Myself and Me and The Great Unexpected‘Gráinne Murphy’s understanding of the fragility, and strength, of what holds us together and tears us apart — love, family, irredeemable loss — is profound, her insights original and shattering.’ Marianne Lee, author of A Quiet Tide

    'Allie Rogers strikes gold again A book about issues that isn't issue-led, and a book about childhood that isn't mawkish and emotional — Allie Rogers has, in Tale of a Tooth, created a tale that's original, powerful and long lasting. Danny's voice is readable, memorable, and may have just changed my mind about child narrators' The Book Bag
    'It was a challenging read in terms of exploring the often taboo issue of domestic violence between women, which makes this a hugely important novel. Exploring a narrative which is too often kept private, but nevertheless, desperately needs to be told, Allie Rogers is unflinching in her descriptions of bullying and brutality which can be found within relationships. For this, she deserves to be congratulated.' Jess Richards
    'Via a unique, compelling, utterly original voice and characters I loved from page one, Tale of a Tooth tells a critical, timely, heart-breaking story of a little boy and his mother navigating the hard parts of life with grace and wisdom and, most importantly, each other.' Laurie Frankel
