            A personal account of WWI from the diaries of a Gisborne farm boy, shaped into a gripping narrative by the diarist's grandson 100 years later. Follow Alick as he moves from his last night on the farm in early 1916, through enshipment and training, then off to the battle fields of... France and Belgium, occupied Germany and back home. His treasured diaries covered the tedium, the mud, the fear and sorrow, the discomfort, the periods of leave and the letters from those back home. See the war unfold through Alick's eyes and learn about his and his companions' attitudes to the army, to female company, to the enemy soldiers, to the hospitality provided by people under pressure, to the war itself. And after the drama and tragedy of war, comes the return home and the efforts required to make a living while remaining steadfastly silent about the traumas of those terrible years - an unseen fight that continued and affected generations to come.

            The Girl From Revolution Road is based on the author's experiences growing up in New Zealand as an immigrant from Iran. It is part memoir and part story told with humour and drama while exploring the idea of living in-between. The stories range from a childhood in war-torn Iran i...ncluding the trauma of a night spent in prison as a four-year-old to learning English in order to make friends in the suburbs of Auckland to dating in the days of Corona. It is about growing up as a young woman torn between her immigrant roots and her desire to be like everyone else. The humour is sometimes off-cut with the more sombre reminder of the racism that has always existed in this country from misguided quips ('Is Saddam Hussein your dad?') to more serious stories of harassment including an altercation at a fast food joint on the streets of Glenfield. There are reflections on the impact of world events such as 9/11 and more recent mosque attacks and how they show that more than ever, marginalised voices are needed in our cultural discourse. Gazaleh's is an important new voice, with her writing exploring ideas surrounding homeland, ethnicity and identity. Through her accessible and humorous story-telling the migrant experience is brought vividly into focus.

            You made me very bad, Connor. And I am so glad. Ana and Connor have been having an affair for three years. In hotel rooms and coffee shops, swiftly deleted texts and briefly snatched weekends, they have built a world with none but the two of them in it. But then the unimaginable ...happens, and Ana finds herself alone, trapped inside her secret. How can we lose someone the world never knew was ours? How do we grieve for something no one else can ever find out? In her desperate bid for answers, Ana seeks out the shadowy figure who has always stood just beyond her reach - Connor's wife Rebecca. Peeling away the layers of two overlapping marriages, Here is the Beehive is a devastating excavation of parenthood, betrayal and loss.

            In a world of perennial fire and growing extinctions, Anna's aged mother is dying-if her three children would just allow it. Condemned by their pity to living she increasingly escapes through her hospital window into visions of horror and delight. When Anna's finger vanishes and ...a few months later her knee disappears, Anna too feels the pull of the window. She begins to see that all around her others are similarly vanishing, but no one else notices. All Anna can do is keep her mother alive. But the window keeps opening wider, taking Anna and the reader ever deeper into a strangely beautiful novel about hope and love and orange-bellied parrots. An ember storm of a novel, this is Booker Prize-winning novelist Richard Flanagan at his most moving-and astonishing-best.
