    The Last Pilot by Benjamin Johncock

    With echoes of Raymond Carver as well as Tom Wolfe's *The Right Stuff* and Richard Yates' *Revolutionary Road*, *The Last Pilot* re-ignites the thrill and excitement of the space race through the story of one man's courage in the face of unthinkable loss. 'The author’s grasp of the intricacies of life among test pilots and their perilous pursuit of the demon of speed is striking enough. What gives the novel its emotional lift-off is its portrait of a marriage going wrong, harrowed by the pressures of American machismo and familial loss.' Observer Hidden Gems 2016

    The Facts of Life by Paula Knight

    A clarion call to recognise that parenting isn’t the be-all and end-all of family life, Paula Knight’s extraordinarily powerful graphic memoir is a beautifully drawn, funny and sometimes painful exploration of what it takes to be a woman, and a mother – or not. 'This is a wonderfully honest, moving, emotional, human story about what we were brought up to expect in life and what hand we actually get dealt, what we want and what others expect of us… And it’s about the fact that no matter what, it is still our life, and we can still make it a good one for ourselves.' Joe Gordon, The Forbidden Planet Paperback: 240 pages Size: 170mm x 220mm
  6. Magnetism by Ruth Figgest Magnetism by Ruth Figgest

    Magnetism by Ruth Figgest

    Mother and daughter Caroline and Erica are best of friends and worst of enemies. Set in the American mid- and south-west, their story unfolds over more than 50 years against a backdrop of sweeping social change. Feisty and argumentative, they roll with the punches, surviving car crashes, awkward family gatherings, relationship disasters—and plastic surgery. Sharply observed and darkly comic, Magnetism notches a riveting new path through this most fundamental of family ties. "Ruth Figgest has a deep understanding of the human condition in all its many guises and depicts it with razor-sharp accuracy. Her characters are emotionally vulnerable, self-sabotaging, and prone to exhilaratingly outrageous behaviour, but they somehow never lose our sympathy. This is psychologically acute, perceptive and witty writing that can make you laugh out loud and wince with discomfort at the same time." - Umi Sinha "Ruth Figgest demonstrates how to make a story about more than one thing at once. Her astute young heroine faces the prospect of plastic surgery to render her looks more pleasing to her lovingly fault-finding mother but simultaneously arrives at a new understanding of the state of her parents’ marriage and the ambivalent purpose she has to serve within it." - Patrick Gale
