            *PRE-ORDER NOW* The bestselling author of A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian is in top form tackling money laundering and the state of Britain today in this vibrant, laugh-out-loud novel George Pantis is in a pickle. After walking out on his wife Rosie on Referendum night 2...016 to shack up with hairdresser 'Brexit Brenda' next door, he thinks he's got it made - especially when he wins millions on a Kosovan lottery he only vaguely remembers entering. Unfortunately, he's forgotten his password and can't get at his money. Which is a problem because he suddenly has to contend with lots of forceful new friends desperate to know his mother's maiden name. As things quickly get out of hand, George must make a mad dash from Sheffield to the Adriatic - and into the arms of organized crime gangs who specialise in illegal kidney transplants and heroin smuggling. George is in need of rescue - both from this pickle and from himself. But will his son Sensible Sid, Brenda and Rosie put aside their differences long enough to help? And might the journey bring this dysfunctional family back together? ----------------------------------------- Praise for Marina Lewycka 'Lewycka is a seriously talented comic writer' Time Out 'Pure laugh-out-loud social comedy' Daily Mail 'Hilarious and horrifying . . . funny, clever and well observed' Guardian 'Marina Lewycka is funny, intelligent and refreshingly generous.

            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.

            An inspirational and gripping first-person account of determination, adversity and survival against the odds. Last year, Claire Nelson made international headlines. She was in her thirties and was beginning to burn out - her hectic London life of work and social activity and stri...ving to do more and do better in the big city was frenetic and stressful. Although she was surrounded by people all of the time, she felt increasingly lonely. When the anxiety she felt finally brought her to breaking point, Claire decided to take some time off and travelled to Joshua Tree Park in California to hike and clear her head. What happened next was something she could never have anticipated. While hiking, Claire fell 30 feet, gravely injuring herself and she lay alone in the desert - mistakenly miles off any trail, without a cell phone signal, fighting for her life. She lay there for four days until she was miraculously rescued - the doctors saying she had only hours to live when she was eventually found. In THINGS I LEARNED FROM FALLING Claire tells her incredible story and what it taught her about loneliness, anxiety and transformation and how to survive it all.

            Macedonia occupies a curious position on the map, and a curious blank in our collective consciousness. A land-locked nation in the Southern Balkan peninsula, Macedonia is wedged between countries that have been gripped by communism, dictatorship or conflict, without ever itself h...aving been forced into the international spotlight by political ideology or war. As such, it remains Europe's oldest surviving melting pot of faiths and civilisations, with one foot in the west and one foot in the Middle East. Macedonia is also the birthplace of Kapka Kassbova's grandmother, and so her journey to this ancient region is also a home-coming of sorts, a chance to understand the legacy of the past. Tracing a route around Lake Ohrid and the ancient Roman road, the via Egnatia, Kassabova meets monks and nuns, archaeologists and fishermen, new Islamists and old pagans, icon painters and pearl artisans, as she searches for her Macedonian family, the living and the dead.

            An outrageous sortie on a pre-war BSA and two obscure, obsolete Yorkshire-made, single-cylinder Panther motorbikes. Poorly funded, with little planning, the ride depends on good luck, blind loyalty and terminal optimism. The struggle is managed with a youthful naivety.
