              Lay low, stay out of trouble and don't get pulled over. It was probably the best advice I'd ever had. How long until I ignored it? All Lachie Munro wants is a quiet life in sunny Newcastle. But Lachie and quiet don't seem to get along. When his estranged dad, Terry, turns up fres...h out of prison, he's packing more than the usual family baggage. Suddenly there are two murderous goons on Lachie's doorstep and the police are paying him special attention. But Terry's on the hunt for a long-lost fortune, and he won't be leaving Newcastle - or Lachie - without it. Which is bad news for Lachie who suspects the more time he spends with his dad, the more trouble it causes. And it'll be Lachie Munro who cops a hiding to nothing. HIDING TO NOTHING is the next caper from the master of beachside noir, Andy Muir, a wild ride driven by brilliant characters and fast-paced dialogue. The underworld has never been so much fun.

              Scottish-born Robert Wales sailed into Sydney Harbour during WWII, and knew he wanted to stay. But a wife and five young kids later, he was choking in the city and doctors prescribed fresh country air. In 1953, with no experience and only knowledge he'd picked up from a few books..., he uprooted his family and set out to establish a sheep farm in the bush. When they arrive on a lonely hill in northern New South Wales, they have no electricity, no running water, no telephone and no choice but to make this their home. From Angela Wales, eldest of the five kids, comes this extraordinarily vivid and evocative account of the next ten years as they try to tame six thousand acres of bush and navigate the challenges of country life. Filled with drama and hilarity, joy and back-breaking toil, BAREFOOT IN THE BINDIS portrays a childhood spent in the outback, and is a sensational picture of Australia past.

              It was no surprise that Angela Williams went to jail. A traumatic, violent upbringing saw to that. But after serving a short sentence for theft as a teenager, she worked hard to break the cycle. Thirteen years later Angela was studying, teaching, providing a stable home for her s...on, and finally feeling like she'd got her life together. Then she got hit by a postie bike. Police realised that Angela still had ten months to go on the prison sentence she'd thought was in her distant past. However, Angela was a different prisoner the second time around: no longer a scared, damaged nineteen-year-old, she knew how to speak up for herself and her fellow prisoners against a system of power, privilege and cruelty that controls the lives of Australia's most vulnerable women and offers little hope for redemption. With unwavering courage, intelligence and humour, SNAKES AND LADDERS reveals an astonishing true story of falling through the cracks, and what it takes to climb back out again.

              A woman overshadowed by history steps back into the light . . . Artist Elizabeth Gould spent her life capturing the sublime beauty of birds the world had never seen before, but her legacy was eclipsed by the fame of her husband, John Gould. Now, The Birdman's Wife at last gives v...oice to a passionate and adventurous spirit, who was so much more than the woman behind the man. In England's golden age of discovery, as John Gould and his peers fuelled popular imagination with their scientific findings, Elizabeth deftly navigated a world that few women were permitted to enter. Juggling an artistic life with her roles as wife, lover, helpmate and mother, she breathed wondrous life into hundreds of exotic new species. A woman ahead of her time, she continually defied convention, eventually embarking on a trailblazing expedition to collect and illustrate Australia's 'curious' birdlife. THE BIRDMAN'S WIFE is a multi-award winning novel, and an indelible portrait of an incredible woman.

              How can you feel anchored when you have no place to call your own? Australia has a large shadow population of people who experience homelessness - whether couch-surfing, staying in a refuge, boarding house or caravan park, or sleeping rough. Too often they are dismissed or blamed.... They are spoken for, and about, but rarely get to speak for themselves. Edited by former BIG ISSUE deputy editor Meg Mundell, WE ARE HERE is a vibrant and moving collection of true stories showcasing the creative talents of people who have known homelessness. From cold city doorways to lonely bush camps, from a borrowed couch to a discreetly parked car, from dodgy boarding houses to the humid hell of Manus Island, these powerful, defiant and illuminating stories will make every reader question their place in the world. And the kind of place they want the world to be. All profits from the sale of this book will be donated to charities that work with people experiencing homelessness. The writers and visual artists featured in WE ARE HERE have been paid for their contributions.

              'Her name is Sammy Went. This photo was taken on her second birthday. Three days later she was gone.' On a break between teaching photography classes in Melbourne, Kim Leamy is approached by a stranger investigating the disappearance of a little girl from her Kentucky home twenty...-eight years earlier. He believes Kim is that girl. At first she brushes it off, but when Kim scratches the surface of her family history in Australia, questions arise that aren't easily answered. To find the truth, she must travel to Sammy's home of Manson, Kentucky, and into a dark past. As the mystery of Sammy's disappearance unravels and the town's secrets are revealed, this superb novel builds towards an electrifying climax. Inspired by Gillian Flynn's frenetic suspense and Stephen King's masterful world-building, THE NOWHERE CHILD is a combustible tale of trauma, cult, conspiracy and memory. It is the remarkable debut of Christian White, an exhilarating new Australian talent.
