Emma Bridgewater, queen of kitchenware, proves herself queen of the memoir too. As attractive, comforting and encouraging as her products, this book is similarly innocent of tweeness or cloying cosiness. The crunch of good toast and the bitter sweetness of good marmalade in fact. — Stephen Fry

Eat, Drink, Run.

Bryony Gordon
Authors:
Bryony Gordon

The new hilarious and inspirational memoir from Sunday Times no1 bestselling author Bryony Gordon.Bryony Gordon was not a runner. A loafer, a dawdler, a drinker, a smoker, yes. A runner, no. Yet somehow, as she began to recover from the emotional rollercoaster of laying her life bare in her mental health memoir MAD GIRL, she started to realise that getting outside, moving her body and talking to others for whom life was also an occasional challenge, might actually help her. Going for a run might not banish her sadness but at least it might show it that she was damn well trying to beat it, which is sometimes half the battle. As she began to run further she started to see the limitations she had imposed on her life more clearly. Why couldn't she be a runner? Or a bungee jumper? Or a deep sea diver? Maybe rather than sitting on the sofa watching the world go by, fulfilling your dreams was just about standing up and taking that first step. Maybe you can do it too.In April 2017, less than a year after she had weighed herself at over 16 stone but stepped off the scales and started training anyway, Bryony Gordon ran all 26 and 3/4 miles of the London Marathon. Here, in her new typically funny and hugely inspiring memoir, she shows us how extraordinary things can happen to us all, no matter what life throws at us, if we're just willing to keep going.

Adrian Slywotzky With Karl Web, Er

Demand is one of the few economic terms almost everyone knows. Demand drives supply. When demand rises, growth happens - jobs are created, the economy flourishes and society thrives. So goes the theory.It sounds simple, yet almost no one really understands demand, including the business owners, company leaders and policy makers who try to stimulate and satisfy it. Aimed at a business and general non-fiction readership, DEMAND is a book which searches for clues as to where demand really comes from, and why, and how we might control it.

Living With Evil

Cynthia Owen
Authors:
Cynthia Owen

Cynthia Owen grew up in Ireland, went to the local convent school, said her prayers and took her first communion with all the other girls in her class. But behind the façade of respectability lurked a hideous reality.Cynthia was just eight years old when she was sexually abused by her father amongst others. Shortly before her eleventh birthday she was made pregnant and, minutes after giving birth to the baby, Cynthia watched in horror as her own mother murdered the tiny infant, named Noleen, by repeatedly stabbing her with a knitting needle. Cynthia's mother then wrapped the baby girl in a plastic bag, dumped her in an alleyway and made her daughter go back to school and pretend nothing had ever happened.After enduring many more years of rape and violence, Cynthia came forward and reported her abuse and Noleen's death.Finally, in 2007, after a fifteen-year legal fight to have her baby girl formally identified, the jury at the 'Dun Laoghaire Baby' inquest declared that the baby found dead in an alleyway thirty-four years previously was Noleen Murphy, the daughter of Cynthia Owen.Cynthia's is a horrific story of brutality and loss, but ultimately, it is an account of love, immense bravery and her fight for justice in Noleen's name.

Moan About Men

Juliana Foster
Authors:
Juliana Foster

What is it about men that drives women to distraction? Could it be the way they flick to the footie results while you're trying to watch your favourite television programme? Is it their dogged inability to admit that they might - just might - be wrong? Or is it the infuriating way that they can meticulously order and maintain comprehensive record collections but can't quite find the time to rinse the sink after shaving? From unsightly splayed legs and headache-inducing snoring to the bathroom blight of poorly positioned pee and the horrors of man-flu, MOAN ABOUT MEN is a brilliantly funny take on all the things men do that make women weep with frustration - and also with mirth. In an amusing and all-encompassing rant, this is a chance to get it off your chest and dare to share in a life-affirming moan about men.
