              Yona has been stuck behind a desk for years working as a programming coordinator for Jungle, a travel company specialising in package holidays to destinations ravaged by disaster. When a senior colleague touches her inappropriately she tries to complain, and in an attempt to bury... her allegations, the company make her an attractive proposition: a free ticket for one of their most sought-after trips, to the desert island of Mui. She accepts the offer and travels the remote island, where the major attraction is a supposedly-dramatic sinkhole. When the customers who've paid a premium for the trip begin to get frustrated, Yona realises that the company has dangerous plans to fabricate an environmental catastrophe to make the trip more interesting, but when she tries to raise the alarm, she discovers she has put her own life in danger.

              Signs of Life: To the Ends of the Earth with a Doctor (Hardback, Main)

              By Fabes, Stephen

              In 2010 Stephen Fabes rode away from his career as an emergency doctor in London, on a journey that would see him ride the length of six continents; a cycling circumnavigation which took six years. Signs of Life is his story of a world of challenges - from Tajik camel spiders to ...camping on a frozen lake in Mongolia, to coaxing another few kilometres out of 'Ol' Patchy' (his faithful inner tube), and of fascinating interactions with the people of seventy-five countries; from hospitable nomads and curious children to vindictive border guards and gangsters. It is also a story of medicine calling Stephen back; he recalls his first pronouncement of death as he examines the frozen body of a monk high in the Himalayas; he is drawn into treating patients at a leprosy clinic; he helps refugees at The Jungle in Calais. All the while, he reflects on how societies treat their most vulnerable and draws comparisons with the lost souls he had treated back home in London; people who he resolves to truly listen to, when he returns to his vocation.

              In a suburban house in 1977 an elderly lady burnt her memoirs. Her life, she felt, was not one people would want to read about. The life of a woman, born into the working class, brought up to go into service, who had married, had a daughter, and gone back to work after her husban...d died, was so like that of many others, that there could be little there worth saving. This is the story of a woman who was, indeed, like many other people: not a royal, not rich, not famous, simply someone who worked hard and enjoyed her life. Beginning in 1882, she ranged through life in the country, life in the town, life in her own house, and in that of others. She travelled, married, had children and a highly successful career. For while Georgina Landemare saw herself as ordinary, her accomplishments, and the life she lived, were anything but. She started her career as a nursemaid, and ended it cooking for one of the best-known figures in British history, a man to whom food was central, not only as a pleasure by itself, but as a diplomatic tool in a time when the world was embroiled in a worldwide war. Churchill's Cook is a culinary biography: a life lived through food ranging from rural Berkshire to wartime London, via Belle Epoque Paris and prohibition-era New York. Through one eager eater, and one skilled cook, Annie Gray tells the story of the way Victorian tastes changed and 20th century food developed, taking a look into the kitchens of the time complete with evolving technology and attitudes towards domestic service. Recipes include Georgina's German Kougelhof, Curried Brains, macaroons, Boodles Orange, Mousse de Maple and 'Chocolat Cake Good'

              The Address Book: What Street Addresses Reveal about Identity, Race, Wealth and Power

              The Address Book: What Street Addresses Reveal about Identity, Race, Wealth and Power (Hardback, Main)

              By Mask, Deirdre

              Starting with a simple question, 'what do street addresses do?' Deirdre Mask travels the world and back in time to work out how we describe where we live and what that says about us. From the chronological numbers of Tokyo to the naming of Bobby Sands Street in Iran, she explores... how our address - or lack of one - expresses our politics, culture and technology. It affects our health and wealth, and it can even affect the working of our brains. It's the perfect example of a seemingly insignificant aspect of your life that actually tells you all sorts of things you'd never expect. Perhaps most surprising of all, around 60% of the world's population don't have a street address - and that hugely affects their quality of life, from having bank accounts to whether the emergency services are able to reach them. Mask meets the people who live without addresses and those who are trying to change that - a change that isn't always welcome. From Ancient Rome to Kolkata today, from cholera epidemics to tax hungry monarchs, Mask discovers the different ways street names are created, celebrated, and in some cases, banned. Filled with fascinating people and histories, this incisive, entertaining book shows how addresses are about identity, class and race. But most of all they are about power: the power to name, to hide, to decide who counts, who doesn't, and why.

Did you know it took three attempts to make your kidneys? Or that tiny twirling hairs on your back showed your... other organs where to go? Or that hiccups are probably a legacy from our ancient, underwater ancestors? With cutting-edge science and a wry sense of humour, Vestre reveals all this and more. Like: how sperm know which way to swim. Why sex and gender are more complicated than one might think. What you have in common with every living being, and why you are unique. Set off on a true voyage of discovery through an inner universe whose secrets we are still unravelling. A miniature drama of cosmic significance, this is the story of how you became you.

              Good Morning, Destroyer of Men's Souls: A groundbreaking memoir of women, addiction and love

              Good Morning, Destroyer of Men's Souls: A groundbreaking memoir of women, addiction and love (Hardback, Main)

              Aron's story of her intense, toxic affair with drug addict K is gripping, poetic and darkly amusing. But alongside the late nights and broken promises of her own life, Aron builds a bigger picture: the untold story of those who have loved and supported addicts through the ages. F...rom prohibition, which grew out of the (mainly women-led) temperance movement, to the emergence of Al Anon, a fellowship for family members of addicts, to the invention of co-dependency, the story of addiction has never been about one person. Exploring her own journey of descent and recovery, Aron asks painful and rarely discussed questions. When does helping become harmful? Whose suffering counts? And are our narratives about love as broken as our drug laws?
