            The New Zealand All Blacks are one of the most recognisable and formidable teams on the world sporting stage. They are the record setters, the keepers of tradition, and the icons of the game of Rugby Union. They have been the benchmark for skill and execution ever since the oval ...shaped ball first arrived on New Zealand's shores, and are a team the rest of the world aspire to beat. They also hold the most victories of any Test nation, and the best win percentage overall, and can proudly stand shoulder to shoulder alongside some of the greatest sporting teams in the world of any code.Much has been written about the All Blacks and their legacy, but in this one book you get the full picture the Tests, the players, the results and the history - recollecting those memorable moments and marvelling at the exploits of some of world-famous All Blacks. From the inaugural Rugby World Cup in 1987, when it was still an amateur game, through to their record-breaking exploits in 2016 at the height of professionalism, the All Blacks have enjoyed one of the highest levels of sporting success in the world. But the modern era is not the whole story.The New Zealand Rugby Companion fills in the essential gaps, provides the historic context and completes the total picture for all rugby lovers. Up to including the 2019.

            The person you are with is just like you- same background, same age, same interests. The perfect match. And it is an unmitigated disaster. Then, when, and where, you least expect it, you meet someone new. You seem to have nothing in common and yet, somehow, it feels totally right.... Nick Hornby's brilliantly observed, tender but also brutally funny new novel gets to the heart of what it means to fall surprisingly and headlong in love with the best possible person - someone who is not just like you at all.

            One morning on the outskirts of Damascus, two starving friends are walking through their desolate city and come across a familiar street that has been turned to rubble, concrete bridges towering above them like tombs and houses turned inside out. Aeham turns to the only comfort h...e has left and pushes his piano into the street to play a song of hope to his fellow Syrians. It is a song that will reach far beyond the streets of his home and carry consequences he could never have dreamed of. This tender and poetic account of Aeham's experiences, from losing his city, friends and family to leaving his country and finding safety, will move readers with its raw and candid emotion. This is a gripping portrait of a man's search for solace and of a country that has been fiercely torn apart.

            In Upstream on the Mataura, Dougal has captured the essence of his lifelong connection with the Mataura River. The book is as much a meditation on landscape and moving water as it is about angling. It is also about the communities the river runs through, the friendships sustained... by fly-fishing, and a love of the river and its tributaries.
