Small Great Things

By Jodi Picoult

A RICHARD AND JUDY BOOK CLUB 2017 PICK
A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The best books make you see differently. This is one of them. The eye-opening new novel from Jodi Picoult, with the biggest of themes: birth, death, and responsibility.

When a newborn baby dies after a routine hospital procedure, there is no doubt about who will be held responsible: the nurse who had been banned from looking after him by his father.

What the nurse, her lawyer and the father of the child cannot know is how this death will irrevocably change all of their lives, in ways both expected and not.

Small Great Things is about prejudice and power; it is about that which divides and unites us.

It is about opening your eyes.

The Burial Hour

By Jeffery Deaver

Number one bestselling author and master of suspense Jeffery Deaver returns with a new Lincoln Rhyme thriller. For Rhyme's new opponent, the Composer, the victim's dying breaths are music to his ears...

The only leads in a broad-daylight kidnapping are the account of an eight-year-old girl, some nearly invisible trace evidence and the calling card: a miniature noose left lying on the street. A crime scene this puzzling demands forensic expertise of the highest order. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are called in to investigate.

Then the case takes a stranger turn: a recording surfaces of the victim being slowly hanged, his desperate gasps the backdrop to an eerie piece of music. The video is marked as the work of The Composer...

Despite their best efforts, the suspect gets away. So when a similar kidnapping occurs on a dusty road outside Naples, Rhyme and Sachs don't hesitate to rejoin the hunt. But the search is now a complex case of international cooperation - and not all those involved may be who they seem. All they can do is follow the evidence, before their time runs out.

Harmless Like You

By Rowan Hisayo Buchanan

LONGLISTED FOR THE 2016 JHALAK PRIZE

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2016 BAMB READERS AWARD FOR BREAKTHROUGH AUTHOR

'This brilliant debut novel by Rowan Hisayo Buchanan is cause for celebration.' LORRIE MOORE

When the meaning of 'home' is complicated, we strive for a sense of connection.
Yet sometimes being alone feels like the easiest choice to make.

In 1968 Yuki is 16 and has not one friend in all of New York.
It's the year her parents move back to Tokyo, but Yuki decides to stay.
As she sketches out her new life, it is also the year she'll fall in love with a shade of orange, climb out a window, meets an aspiring model, and run tangle-haired through the night.

In 2016 gallery owner Jay becomes a father, believing he is a happily married man.
It's the year he will finally confront his mother, who abandoned their family when he was two years old.
Her name is Yuki Oyama and she has been living for decades as an artist in Berlin.

Written with startling beauty and power, HARMLESS LIKE YOU explores the complexities of identity and art and captures, over decades and cities, a fractured family narrative of love, loneliness and reconciliation. .

Impressive . . . Rowan Hisayo Buchanan [is] a 27-year-old with a very big literary career in front of her . . . Slick and intelligent... it's the subtle brilliance of Buchanan's back-to-front tale that really left me reeling.Elegant, accomplished debut... Although this is a dark novel, it is also as rich and vivid as the chapter headings' descriptions of paint coloursThis beautiful novel explores creativity and the complicated relationships between parents and children.This elegant and moving novel burns slowly, building in intensity as it develops to explore the subjects of identity, alienation and desire.Harmless Like You is a refreshing, bold book about understatement.It's pretty rare that a book takes my breath away. But I guarantee Rowan Hisayo Buchanan's beautiful debut, Harmless Like You, will do just that . . . in its purest sense, Harmless Like You is a novel about art and abandonment but, far more than that, it's an engrossing human story of two people who can't find themselves, let alone each other; about what love looks like to different people, and how you learn to give it or feel it. Or, indeed, don't. Buchanan nails decades-long loneliness in a way that will leave your heart hurting.Combines a wry, sardonic voice with an assured knack for comic set-pieces.Stylishly written . . . exceptionalHarmless is a relentlessly honest book, capturing some of the ugliest and under-represented facets of life, in rich, elegant prose . . . it perfectly describes how life isn't easy, without lowering itself to useless, clichéd platitudes. Hisayo Buchanan managed to produce a genuinely captivating narrative out of an unfortunate series of events.A serious, sad and beautifully written debut.A well written, unique and engrossing debut novel . . . a great achievementThis is a book I've been waiting for since before its author was born. And yet I could never have predicted it. It is a book about beauty and belonging, suffering and being lost, a book that takes into account history, the implications of separation and disorientation. Rowan Hisayo Buchanan cleaves to her idiosyncrasies, foregoing whitewash in favor of her ownglittering vision. She is "the seer, not the seen." The result is a gift-unassuming, elegant, vividly prismatic. Not since Sigrid Nunez's A Feather on the Breath of God has a book shone such a moving light on multiracial, interracial, and transnational relationships. Regardless of your flesh tone, Rowan Hisayo Buchanan's study of color-its history, its strangeness, its allure, and its consequences - will dazzle you.A beautiful novel of loneliness, sadness, identity, and love.The book has a youthfulness that only a fresh-faced debut novelist can produce.An exciting new voice in fiction captures the fragile personal histories of an estranged mother and son.

Holding

By Graham Norton

Graham Norton's dark and masterful debut. Set in a remote Irish village, this is an intelligently crafted story of love, secrets and loss.

'... one of the more authentic debuts I've read in recent years ... in such an understated manner, eschewing linguistic eccentricity ... in favour of genuine characters and tender feeling ... this is a fine novel' John Boyne, Irish Times

'It's funny and wonderfully perceptive' Wendy Holden

'Poised and perceptive' the Sunday Times

'Deeply accomplished ... brilliantly observed' Good Housekeeping

'... a deftly plotted story as moving as it is compelling' Sunday Mirror

'Strenuously charming ... surprisingly tender' Metro

'Heartwarming and observant' Stylist

The remote Irish village of Duneen has known little drama; and yet its inhabitants are troubled. Sergeant PJ Collins hasn't always been this overweight; mother of two Brid Riordan hasn't always been an alcoholic; and elegant Evelyn Ross hasn't always felt that her life was a total waste. So when human remains are discovered on an old farm, suspected to be that of Tommy Burke - a former love of both Brid and Evelyn - the village's dark past begins to unravel. As the frustrated PJ struggles to solve a genuine case for the first time in his life, he unearths a community's worth of anger and resentments, secrets and regret.

Darkly comic, touching and at times profoundly sad. Graham Norton employs his acerbic wit to breathe life into a host of lovable characters, and explore - with searing honesty - the complexities and contradictions that make us human.

The Strange Disappearance of a Bollywood Star

By Vaseem Khan

The enchanting new Baby Ganesh Agency novel sees Inspector Chopra and his elephant sidekick investigating the dark side of Bollywood.

Mumbai thrives on extravagant spectacles and larger-than-life characters.

But even in the city of dreams, there is no guarantee of a happy ending.

Rising star and incorrigible playboy Vikram Verma has disappeared, leaving his latest film in jeopardy. Hired by Verma's formidable mother to find him, Inspector Chopra and his sidekick, baby elephant Ganesha, embark on a journey deep into the world's most flamboyant movie industry.

As they uncover feuding stars, failed investments and death threats, it seems that many people have a motive for wanting Verma out of the picture.

And yet, as Chopra has long suspected, in Bollywood the truth is often stranger than fiction...

DelightfulThere have been many insipid imitators of the Alexander McCall Smith formula, grafting a cosy mystery into a depiction of a foreign culture dripping with local colour, but Khan has the quirkiness and hint of grit to make his portrayal of modern Mumbai memorablePraise for THE UNEXPECTED INHERITANCE OF INSPECTOR CHOPRAKeeps things heart-warming while tackling corruption at the highest levels and violent crime at the lowest. Endearing and gripping, it sets up Inspector Chopra - and the elephant - for a long series.A sparkling debut with a zippy plot and an endearing set of charactersEnchantingChopra, diligent, incorruptible and not entirely at ease with shiny new India, is a delight, as is his redoubtable wife, Poppy - and Ganesha the elephant, once he has cheered up a bit, proves a very useful ally indeed. Utterly charmingA cast of intriguing characters that it will be a joy to see develop. But the greatest strength is the setting in the teeming city of Mumbai, from which the colour and atmosphere flows out of every page in this enjoyable, whimsical taleA quirky murder mystery... full of colourful characters and insightful details about human motivationIn the third delightful Baby Ganesh Agency novel, Inspector Chopra investigates the dark underbelly of Bollywood when a film star vanishes into thin air...

Vaseem Khan first saw an elephant lumbering down the middle of the road in 1997 when he arrived in India to work as a management consultant. It was the most unusual thing he had ever encountered and served as the inspiration behind his series of crime novels.

He returned to the UK in 2006 and now works at University College London for the Department of Security and Crime Science where he is astonished on a daily basis by the way modern science is being employed to tackle crime. Elephants are third on his list of passions, first and second being great literature and cricket, not always in that order.

Brilliant PR for previous books set the series off as a reader favourite: Bookseller interview, Evening Standard magazine feature, BBC Breakfast, reviews, press and radio interviews, bookshop talks and festival appearances. More appearances and reviews guaranteed.Vaseem Khan lived in Mumbai for ten years and has contact with police professionals in his day job - the perfect man to write an Indian crime series.Will appeal to crime readers, Alexander McCall Smith fans, and the reading group market who love a quirky concept and a charming main character.
