              A stunning collection of new short stories originally commissioned by The New York Times Magazine as the COVID-19 pandemic swept the world, from twenty-nine authors including Margaret Atwood, Tommy Orange, Colm Toibin, Kamilia Shamsie, David Mitchell and more, in a project inspir...ed by Boccaccio's The Decameron. When reality is surreal, only fiction can make sense of it. In 1353, Giovanni Boccaccio wrote The Decameron : one hundred nested tales told by a group of young men and women passing the time at a villa outside Florence while waiting out the gruesome Black Death, a plague that killed more than 25 million people. Some of the stories are silly, some are bawdy, some are like fables. In March of 2020, the editors of The New York Times Magazine created The Decameron Project, an anthology with a simple, time-spanning goal: to gather a collection of stories written as our current pandemic first swept the globe. How might new fiction from some of the finest writers working today help us memorialize and understand the unimaginable? And what could be learned about how this crisis will affect the art of fiction? These twenty-nine new stories, from authors including Margaret Atwood, Tommy Orange, Edwidge Danticat, and David Mitchell vary widely in texture and tone. Their work will be remembered as a historical tribute to a time and place unlike any other in our lifetimes, and offer perspective and solace to the reader now and in a future where coronavirus is, hopefully, just a memory.

              AUNTIES is a collection of interviews, stories and essays from organisers, activists and the people behind the scenes who make political change in Aotearoa every day. The publication was crowdfunded in 2017 so it could be radically self-published as an unapologetic tribute an...d snapshot of the women, trans, non-binary and intersex leaders who make movements happen despite all odds. Three years later, AUNTIES brings together a punchy, grounding and nourishing how-to-guide for people fighting for racial, economic and social justice in today's world. Co-edited by community and union organisers, Nadia Abu-Shanab, Ella Grace McPherson-Newton and Kassie Hartendorp, AUNTIES shares reflections, art and poetry from the aunties, leaders and role models they have been in relationship with through their political work. AUNTIES shows insight into the unique traditions of political organising in Te Moana Nui a Kiwa, while paying tribute to the global activists who continue to influence our region. From the home to the workplace, the whenua to the marae, the garage to the university and the kitchen to the community, AUNTIES takes us everywhere political change happens.

              'A perfectly-paced page-turner that cleverly explores the frenemy relationship . . . A really gripping read full of secrets, lies and dark motivations' Philippa East, author of Little White Lies * You're lying, sprawled at the bottom of the stairs, legs bent, arms wide. If I squi...nt, you could be playing Sleeping Bunnies. Or maybe Twister. I wish I could tell you how the blood pooling around your head looks like a halo. But you're past listening. I need to let the paramedics in. And then I have to be careful. Because as the energy trickles out of your body it's pumping into mine. And while this could be a tragic accident, if anyone's got a motive to hurt you, it's me. * Bec and Izzy have been best friends their whole lives. They've been through a lot together - the death of Bec's mother, the birth of Izzy's daughter, Bec's engagement. But there's a darker side to their friendship, too - and Bec is about to reach breaking point. Then Izzy is found broken and bloodied at the bottom of the stairs. It could have been an accident - perhaps she fell - but if the police decide to look for a killer, then Bec is sure to be their prime suspect. * This is The Rumour meets The Holiday, a compulsive thriller with a toxic but layered friendship at its heart that keeps you in the dark until the final few breathless pages . . .

              'Laura Bloom has such a unique talent for modern historical fiction and this time it was a joy to be catapulted back to the 1970s. When I turned the last page I was so sad to say goodbye to her beautifully observed characters. A delight from start to finish!' Liane Moriarty It's ...1977, and warm, bohemian Libby, a stay-at-home mother, genius entertainer and gifted cook, is lonely. When she meets Carol - recently emigrated from London, adrift and in a controlling marriage - and Anna, who loves her career, but not her marriage, and is craving a life that feels always out of reach, the three women form an unexpected bond. Their exes aren't happy about it, though, and neither are their children. Soon the women will be forced into a reckoning that will lay their futures - and their friendships - on the line. With a back drop of inner city grunge, far-out parties and ABBA songs, The Women and The Girls is a funny, questioning and moving novel about love, work, family, friendship and freedom.

              The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Verity and It Ends With Us delivers another breathtaking novel with a magnetic suspense that will keep you glued to the pages. Phenomenal. Outstanding. Unputdownable. - Stephanie's Book Report One of the most spellbinding, profound, bea...utifully told new adult romances I've ever read. It is the kind of story that stays with you, moves you. A breathlessly romantic tale of courage and growth, of patience and trust, of wild abandonment. I read the book cover to cover, in one sitting, I simply couldn't put it down. - KDRBCK Life and a dismal last name are the only two things Beyah Grim's parents ever gave her. After carving her path all on her own, Beyah is well on her way to bigger and better things, thanks to no one but herself. With only two short months separating her from the future she's built and the past she desperately wants to leave behind, an unexpected death leaves Beyah with no place to go during the interim. Forced to reach out to her last resort, Beyah has to spend the remainder of her summer on a peninsula in Texas with a father she barely knows. Beyah's plan is to keep her head down and let the summer slip by seamlessly, but her new neighbor Samson throws a wrench in that plan. Samson and Beyah have nothing in common on the surface. She comes from a life of poverty and neglect; he comes from a family of wealth and privilege. But one thing they do have in common is that they're both drawn to sad things. Which means they're drawn to each other. With an almost immediate connection too intense for them to continue denying, Beyah and Samson agree to stay in the shallow end of a summer fling. What Beyah doesn't realize is that a rip current is coming, and it's about to drag her heart out to sea. This book deserves a whole galaxy of stars, but alas, five is all I can give. -Shades of Rebecca
