Joe Quinns Poltergeist
Joe Quinns Poltergeist
A dark, powerful and moving short story from the internationally acclaimed author of Skellig.

Joe Quinn tells everyone about the poltergeist in his house, but no one believes him. No one that is, except for Davey. He's felt the inexplicable presence in the rooms, he's seen random objects fly through the air. And there's something else ... a memory of his beloved sister, and a feeling deep down that somehow it might be possible for ghosts to exist.

Memoirs of a Book Thief
Memoirs of a Book Thief
Paris in the 1950s: the reign of Sartre and existentialism. Daniel Brodin-bibliophile, book thief, self-proclaimed poet-enters the heated atmosphere of the Cafe Serbier, home of the Parisian literati. A poetry night is taking place and, when one luminary suggests giving the floor to an unknown, Daniel impulsively puts himself forward. Under pressure, he recites not one of his own surrealist poems but an obscure piece of Italian verse he's certain no one will know. It's plagiarism-but it's a triumph.

At last, success. Daniel's recital marks his entrance into the Parisian avant-garde: a band of cultured rogues and pseudo-revolutionaries for whom life is a playground for art, and planning a robbery has as much value as writing a book. In this milieu, the wine is good and the girls are beautiful. But can success last if it is founded on plagiarism and theft?

Mental Load A Feminist Comic
Mental Load A Feminist Comic
Emma takes on issues that weigh disproportionately on women - that invisible labour and unpaid organising we do for others - and gives them a comic, feminist twist. Most of us carry some form of mental load - about our work, household responsibilities, financial obligations and personal life - but what makes up that burden and how it's distributed within households and understood in offices isn't usually equal or fair. From maternity leave (it's not a holiday!) to the male gaze and the medical establishment's treatment of women during childbirth, Emma skewers our modern lives in a way that is both hilarious and deadly serious. If you're not laughing, you're probably crying in recognition. Her comics also address the everyday outrages and absurdities of immigrant rights, income inequality and police violence.

Mozart The Man Behind the Music
Mozart The Man Behind the Music
Child prodigy, genius, freak, a man who lived frivolously and died a pauper... The myths surrounding Mozart, composer of some of the world's most sublime music, have long overtaken the known facts of his life. Now, in this charming and very personal tribute, artist Donovan Bixley offers a portrait of the composer that will forever change the way he is viewed. In nearly 100 original drawings and paintings, accompanied by text based on the many letters that he wrote during his life, beginning with the delightful, if misspelt, letters he wrote as a thirteen-year-old boy travelling in Italy with his father. Like his successful "Much Ado About Shakespeare", Bixley brings Mozart to life with humour but also reflects the turmoil of the times in which he lived. This is a newly rendered version of the book successfully published in 2006.

Pirate Queen The Legend of Grace OMalley
Pirate Queen The Legend of Grace OMalley
A captivating retelling of the story of Grace O'Malley, the Pirate Queen of Ireland.

Grace is a true daughter of the fearsome O'Malley clan, and while still a child she yearns to help her father fight to keep Henry VIII's invading English armies out of Ireland. But battlefields are not seen as places for women, and for years she must sit idly at home while her father and her husband march off to defend their homeland. When English conspirators brutally murder her husband, though, Grace will remain idle no longer. She herself leads men into battle on the high seas, where her prowess as a sailor and her ability with a sword quickly gain her a reputation as The Pirate Queen of Ireland. But this reputation will place her own life and the lives of her entire family in danger, and will lead her to confront the most powerful woman in England, Queen Elizabeth I.
