              1960. The world is dancing on the edge of revolution, and nowhere more so than on the Greek island of Hydra, where a circle of poets, painters and musicians live tangled lives. Forming within this circle is a triangle: its points the magnetic, destructive writer Axel Jensen, his ...dazzlingly beautiful wife Marianne Ihlen, and a young Canadian poet named Leonard Cohen. Into their midst arrives teenage Erica, with little more than a bundle of blank notebooks and her grief for her mother. Settling on the periphery of this circle, she watches, entranced and disquieted, as a paradise unravels. Burning with the heat and light of Greece, A Theatre for Dreamers is a spellbinding novel about utopian dreams and innocence lost - and the wars waged between men and women on the battlegrounds of genius.

              The tense, twisty must-read book of the summer - perfect for fans of Louise O'Neill and Sara Barnard `You make me feel like there's something good in the world I can hold on to,' Aaron says. He kisses me again, draws me so close it's almost hard to breathe. `I love you, Gem. And ...I promise I'll hold your heart forever.' When Gemma meets Aaron, she feels truly seen for the first time. Their love story is the intense kind. The written-in-the-stars, excluding-all-others kind. The kind you write songs about. But little by little their relationship takes over Gemma's life. What happens when being seen becomes being watched, and care becomes control? Told in both Gemma's and Aaron's words, this is a raw, moving exploration of gaslighting in teenage relationships that skewers our ideas of what love looks like.

              Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Kim Il-sung, Ceausescu, Mengistu of Ethiopia and Duvalier of Haiti. No dictator can rule through fear and violence alone. Naked power can be grabbed and held temporarily, but it never suffices in the long term. A tyrant who can compel his ow...n people to acclaim him will last longer. The paradox of the modern dictator is that he must create the illusion of popular support. Throughout the twentieth century, hundreds of millions of people were condemned to enthusiasm, obliged to hail their leaders even as they were herded down the road to serfdom. In How to Be a Dictator, Frank Dikoetter returns to eight of the most chillingly effective personality cults of the twentieth century. From carefully choreographed parades to the deliberate cultivation of a shroud of mystery through iron censorship, these dictators ceaselessly worked on their own image and encouraged the population at large to glorify them. At a time when democracy is in retreat, are we seeing a revival of the same techniques among some of today's world leaders? This timely study, told with great narrative verve, examines how a cult takes hold, grows, and sustains itself. It places the cult of personality where it belongs, at the very heart of tyranny.

              We breathe over 20,000 times a day. But most of us don't breathe properly - years of stress and anxiety mean we breathe through our chest, forgetting to use our diaphragm and stomach. We shallow breathe, we hold our breath - all bad for us. Breathe badly and it affects everything... we do. Hold your breath and your blood pressure goes up, your physiology is affected. Learn to breathe correctly and you will be calmer, lose weight, sleep better. Take a deep breath - and learn how to breathe again.

              Frank and funny and powerful and surprising. An utterly gorgeous debut. -Lauren Groff One of the most anticipated books of 2019--Electric Literature, Entertainment Weekly, Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, The Millions, Hyphen, Lit Hub, Nylon, The AV Club, The Advocate, The Rumpus, The ...Week, Books are Magic, Reading Women, Alma Acclaimed literary essayist T Kira Madden's raw and redemptive debut memoir is about coming of age and reckoning with desire as a queer, biracial teenager amidst the fierce contradictions of Boca Raton, Florida, a place where she found cult-like privilege, shocking racial disparities, rampant white-collar crime, and powerfully destructive standards of beauty hiding in plain sight. As a child, Madden lived a life of extravagance, from her exclusive private school to her equestrian trophies and designer shoe-brand name. But under the surface was a wild instability. The only child of parents continually battling drug and alcohol addictions, Madden confronted her environment alone. Facing a culture of assault and objectification, she found lifelines in the desperately loving friendships of fatherless girls. With unflinching honesty and lyrical prose, spanning from 1960s Hawai'i to the present-day struggle of a young woman mourning the loss of a father while unearthing truths that reframe her reality, Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls is equal parts eulogy and love letter. It's a story about trauma and forgiveness, about families of blood and affinity, both lost and found, unmade and rebuilt, crooked and beautiful.

              Born in 1940, Lillian Faderman is the only child of an uneducated and unmarried Jewish woman, who fled to America to escape the Nazis. Her mother's family perished in the Holocaust, and she was racked by guilt at having left them behind, suffering recurrent psychotic episodes. Th...e only relief she had from this, and her brutal sweatshop job, was loving Lilly. Lilly grows into Lil, a beautiful young woman who learns that her deepest erotic and emotional connections are with other women, and who finds herself in a dangerous but seductive world of addicts, pimps, and prostitutes. Desperately seeking to make her life meaningful, and to redeem her mother's suffering, she studies at University of California, Berkeley - paying her way by working as a burlesque stripper. At last she becomes Lillian, a brilliant student and the woman who becomes a loving partner, a devoted mother, an acclaimed writer and ground-breaking pioneer of gay and lesbian scholarship. Told with wrenching immediacy and great power, this is an extraordinary memoir: the nakedly honest story of an exceptional woman and her remarkable, unorthodox life.

              Laugh-out-loud funny and instantly recognisable - not since The Inbetweeners has a coming of age story been so irreverent and relatable. Fifteen-year-old Sam isn't special. He's not a famous vlogger, he's never gone viral, and he doesn't want to be the Next Big Thing. What he lik...es most is chatting to his friends and having a bit of a kick about. None of which was a problem until Dad got rich and Mum made the whole family move to London. Now Sam is being made to go to the North London Academy for the Gifted and Talented, where every student is too busy planning Hollywood domination or starting alt-metal psychedelica crossover bands or making clothes out of bathmats to give someone as normal as him the time of day. Can Sam navigate his way through the weirdness and find a way to be himself? A brilliant modern satire about fitting in, falling out and staying true to your own averageness.

              HERE is a voice to listen to! Moloney's voice is as true as a voice can be. Concise, with the right details rendered perfectly, these sentences come to the reader with marvelous straight forwardness, clean as a bone. --Elizabeth Strout Olive Kitteridge meets The Mars Room in this... powerfully unsentimental debut--a portrait of ten lives behind the concrete walls of a New Hampshire jail. David Moloney's Barker House follows the story of ten unforgettable New Hampshire correctional officers. Isolated in separate regions of the jail, veteran guards get by on what they consider survival strategies--sadistic power-mongering, obsessive surveillance, and private addictions--while two rookies, including Barker's only female officer, develop their own tactics for facing the system. Tracking their subtly intertwined lives, Barker House reveals the world of the jailers over the course of one year on the job, coming to a head when the unexpected death of one in their ranks brings them together. Timely and universal, masterfully crafted, this deeply satisfying debut adds a new layer to discussions of America's criminal justice system, and marks the arrival of an important new literary voice.

This is THE survival guide to making it through adulthood and coming out on the other side in one piece. Even if most of the time you feel like a human courgetti going... through an emotional spiralizer. From learning to love your body, 'wrap yourself up in love, like you're a delicious sausage roll - you're on the same team'; dealing with crushes 'is it alright to only fancy that one actor from a superhero film with a slightly weird face, and commit to them fully, forsaking all others?'; making friends 'sometimes they are your comrades-in-arms, sometimes they're the only ones who can remember where you left your phone', and absolutely everything else in between, Lex Croucher tells it like it is. Through humour, anecdotes, everyday situations, and brilliant design, girls will realise that we're all going through the same (sometimes embarrassing) situations and thinking the same (sometimes loopy) thoughts. Lex's effortlessly witty text will help girls (and women) realise that they are not alone!
