            A life in rock 'n' roll by the world's first female roadie. At just 16, Tana Douglas ran away to the circus that was rock 'n' roll in the 1970s, taking a job with a young and upcoming band called AC/DC. While still a teenager she went on to work for Santana, Neil Diamond and Suzi... Quatro, before heading to the UK then the US, working for a who's who of bands and artists, including Status Quo, Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, Elton John, Ozzy Osbourne, The Police, INXS, The Who, The Runaways, Lenny Kravitz, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Pearl Jam, Ice-T and Ice Cube, eventually moving from lighting and stage production into tour management and logistics. This is rock 'n' roll like you've never seen it before, written in her own words by the woman recognised as the first female roadie in the world.

            'No one writes about life quite like Marika Cobbold; no one combines light and dark, humorous and profound, joyous and sorrowful quite so expertly' Guardian Thorn Marsh was raised in a house of whispers, of meaningful glances and half- finished sentences. Now she's a journalist w...ith a passion for truth, more devoted to her work at the London Journal than she ever was to her ex-husband. When the newspaper is bought by media giant The Goring Group, who value sales figures over fact-checking, Thorn openly questions their methods, and promptly finds herself moved from the news desk to the midweek supplement, reporting heart-warming stories for their new segment, The Bright Side, a job to which she is spectacularly unsuited. On a final warning and with no heart-warming news in sight, a desperate Thorn fabricates a good-news story of her own. The story, centred on an angelic apparition on Hampstead Heath, goes viral. Caught between her principles and her ambitions, Thorn goes in search of the truth behind her creation, only to find the answers locked away in the unconscious mind of a stranger. Marika Cobbold returns with her eighth novel, On Hampstead Heath. Sharp, poignant, and infused with dark humour, On Hampstead Heath is an homage to storytelling and to truth; to the tales we tell ourselves, and the stories that save us.

            The New Zealand Coal Range Handbook' is a well-illustrated and thorough compilation of information on the manufacture and use of coal ranges (nowadays 'wood stoves'). Included are all brands produced in New Zealand from the 1870s on. Covered in detail are the histories of Shacklo...ck, Champion, Atlas and Zealandia: their models, designs, period advertisements and other fascinating snippets. Personal memories and photos relating to the use of coal ranges in our homes and institutions are also included, reflecting their importance in the everyday home and the working lives of most New Zealanders in the past. The Handbook will be useful to those who are curious about or use coal ranges, and those who are simply nostalgic about the way our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents lived. It will also be a useful tool for many who research the way we lived in the past and what we used to manufacture so well.
