• Bow Grip
    Bow Grip
    The long-awaited first novel by Ivan E. Coyote. Unlike her short stories, which are almost entirely first-person and told from the author's perspective as a self-admitted 'boyish girl' (though she is not transgender), Bow Grip is a straight, 40-something male who is at a crossroads in his life. The title references Joey's burgeoning interest in the cello ('gripping' the 'bow') as well as Bow River in Calgary, where most of the novel takes place.

  • Break
    Break
    If only.

    Amy's husband Hugh says he isn't leaving her.

    He still loves her, he's just taking a break - from their marriage, their children and, most of all, from their life together. Six months to lose himself in south-east Asia. And there is nothing Amy can say or do about it.

    Yes, it's a mid-life crisis, but let's be clear: a break isn't a break up - yet . . .

    However, for Amy it's enough to send her - along with her extended family of gossips, misfits and troublemakers - teetering over the edge.

    For a lot can happen in six-months. When Hugh returns if he returns, will he be the same man she married? And will Amy be the same woman?

    Because if Hugh is on a break from their marriage, then isn't she?

    The Break isn't a story about falling in love but about staying in love. It is Marian Keyes at her funniest, wisest and brilliant best.

    The fourth Dunbar boy named Clay.
    Everything happened to him.
    We were all of us changed through him.

  • Broken River
    Broken River
    Following a string of affairs, Karl and Eleanor are giving their marriage one last shot: they're moving with their twelve-year-old daughter Irina from Brooklyn to a newly renovated, apparently charming old house near the upstate New York town of Broken River. Before their arrival, the house stood empty for over a decade. The reason is no secret. Twelve years previously, a brutal double murder took place there, a young couple killed in front of their child. The crime was never solved, and most locals consider the house cursed. The family may have left the deceptions of their city life behind them, but all three are still lying to each other, and to themselves. Before long the family's duplicity will unleash forces none of them could possibly have anticipated, putting them in mortal danger. This new novel by America's master of literary rule-breaking is part thriller, part family drama, part Gothic horror-and like all J.Robert Lennon's novels, it shows the consequences of human deceitfulness, and the dreadful force the past can exert on the present.

    IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO BLOOM. People aren't sure what to make of Susan Green - a prickly independent woman, who has everything just the way she wants it and who certainly has no need for messy emotional relationships.Family and colleagues find her stand-offish and hard to understand, but Susan makes perfect sense to herself, and that's all she needs. At forty-five, she thinks her life is perfect, as long as she avoids her feckless brother, Edward - a safe distance away in Birmingham. She has a London flat which is ideal for one; a job that suits her passion for logic; and a personal arrangement providing cultural and other, more intimate, benefits. Yet suddenly faced with the loss of her mother and, implausibly, with the possibility of becoming a mother herself, Susan's greatest fear is being realised: she is losing control.When she discovers that her mother's will inexplicably favours her brother, Susan sets out to prove that Edward and his equally feckless friend Rob somehow coerced this dubious outcome. But when problems closer to home become increasingly hard to ignore, she finds help in the most unlikely of places.This sparkling debut is a breath of fresh air with real heart and a powerful emotional punch. In Susan we find a character as exasperating and delightful as The Rosie Project's Don Tillman. An uncompromising feminist and a fierce fighter, it's a joy to watch her bloom.
