And when the circus leaves, Danu stays behind. Will she and Morrie ever be reunited, or will something unexpected be waiting for her in the mysterious heart of the city of circles?'Her exploration of self and grief will resonate with many' Ros Barber, author of The Marlowe Papers

The Barrowfields

Phillip Lewis
Authors:
Phillip Lewis

'A beautiful, evocative novel with an amazing sense of place and an understated, dark sensibility. A brilliant debut. I loved it!' Jenni Fagan, author of The PanopticonMesmeric in its prose and mythic in its sweep, THE BARROWFIELDS is an extraordinary debut about the darker side of devotion, the limits of forgiveness, and the reparative power of shared pasts.Just before Henry Aster's birth, his father, a frustrated novelist and lawyer, reluctantly returns to the remote North Carolina mountains in which he was improbably raised and installs his young family in a gothic mansion - nicknamed 'the vulture house' - worthy of his hero Edgar Allan Poe. There, Henry grows up under the desk of this fierce and brilliant man. But when a death in the family tips his father toward a fearsome unravelling, what was once a young son's reverence is poisoned, and Henry flees, not to return until years later when he, too, must go home again.

When Teams Collide

Richard Lewis
Authors:
Richard Lewis

International teams are rapidly becoming the central operating mode for global enterprises. They are often agile and perceptive, know local markets better than HQ does, lead innovation and exploratory ventures, and are more culturally aware than their parent company. But how much autonomy should they be allowed? How can we get things done with colleagues who have different worldviews? How can we strike a balance between core values and the necessary diversity - and is diversity within the team a strength or a hindrance? What is the role of the team leader in all of this? How do you establish team trust? How important is team humor? Who decides the team's ethics? What misunderstandings can arise in a virtual team, lacking face-to-face contact? In answering these and other questions, Richard D. Lewis draws on 30 years experience mediating with hundreds of international teams in two dozen countries. Generously illustrated with explanatory diagrams, When Teams Collide analyses profiles of 24 different nationalities and suggests how they should be led for best results. Commenting on vital considerations of leadership, team trust, ethics and humor, the author also evaluates the relationship between teams and HQ. Applying the cultural concepts in the bestselling When Cultures Collide specifically to team leadership, this is a wide-ranging and compelling account of how to handle what is a difficult and sensitive task.

Richard Heygate, Philip Carr-Gomm

Of all the countries in the world, England has the richest history of magical lore and practice.English authors such as J.R.R.Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Terry Pratchett, and J.K.Rowling, dominate the world of magic in fiction, but from the earliest times, England has also acted as home to generations of eccentrics and scholars who have researched and explored every conceivable kind of occult art.Most people are torn between a fascination with magic and an almost instinctive fear of the occult, of a world redolent with superstition and illusion. And yet more people now practice magic in England than at any time in her history.The Book of English Magic explores this hidden story, from its first stirrings to our present-day fascination with all things magical. Along the way readers are offered a rich menu of magical things to do and places to visit.

Nicholas Brealey Publishing

Welcome to Nicholas Brealey Publishing, the home of notable books. Nicholas Brealey Publishing was eponymously founded way back in 1992 to publish a select list of enduring and forward thinking books focusing on big ideas and practical wisdom - alongside original voices in narrative non-fiction, notably in Travel and Adventure writing. This eclectic, curated approach to vigorously publishing only what’s new, special and well worth reading proved successful across the world and is very much our continued focus. As well as continuing to publish distinctive and exciting titles, we boast perennial bestsellers that are mainstays of their genre. The company has an award-winning list of books on coaching and leadership, personal development and popular psychology, smart thinking and the ‘big ideas’ in business and economics. We are home to some notable books, including the topical The Trouble with Europe, the bestselling The 80/20 Principle trilogy by Richard Koch, and the 50 Classics Series by Tom Butler-Bowdon on ‘the literature of possibility’. Our authors are some of the leading voices in their fields, including award-winning economist Roger Bootle, organizational development experts Peter Senge and Arie de Geus, and in psychology such internationally renowned renowned authors as Richard Nisbett, Gary Klein and Martin Seligman. With offices in London and Boston, our list has expanded and developed over more than two decades of international publishing. From our roots as a publisher of global business books including Richard Lewis’ When Cultures Collide and Fons Trompenaars’ Riding the Waves of Culture, we went on to acquire Intercultural Press in the US and an outstanding list of cross-cultural titles. We publish the world’s bestselling list of Coaching books, starting with Sir John Whitmore’s Coaching for Performance which has sold a million copies worldwide over its four editions, and then the leading US guide Co-Active Coaching with the acquisition of Davies-Black some years later, also expanding our list of books on leadership, human resources, career development and personality type (including the classic Gifts Differing.) We are proud to publish a world-class list of travel writing titles, including FT Book of the Year Swiss Watching, 2015 Stanford Dolman Travel Book of the Year finalist Walking the Woods and the Water, and the ever-popular Around India in 80 Trains. Swiss Watching and the recent Why the Dutch are Different are two of a growing number of titles on our list that paint a contemporary portrait of a people, its country and its culture. Now in its 24th year, Nicholas Brealey Publishing joined Hachette UK in June 2015 as part of John Murray Press. With The Gilded Chalet forthcoming this winter and looking forward to Spring 2016 highlights The Greats on Leadership and Dare to Do, Sarah Outen’s riveting account of her 30,000 mile, five-year loop of the planet by pedal and paddle, we are confident that this next chapter will be one of the most successful yet.
