Baby
`Cynthia can understand how Anahera feels just by looking at her body.'

Cynthia is twenty-one, bored and desperately waiting for something big to happen. Her striking fitness instructor, Anahera, is ready to throw in the towel on her job and marriage. With stolen money and a dog in tow they run away and buy `Baby', an old boat docked in the Bay of Islands, where Cynthia dreams they will live in a state of love. But strange events on an empty island turn their life together in a different direction.

Baby is a sunburnt psychological thriller of obsession and escape by one of the most exciting new voices in New Zealand fiction.

Baby No Eyes
Baby No Eyes
Tawera and his sister are inseparable, in a relationship that is impossible for others to share. In fact his whole whanau is bonded by secrets, a genealogy stitched together by shame, joy, love and sometimes grief. Patricia Grace's major new novel merges recent headlines with stories of a heartfelt family history. It is an account of the mysteries that operate at many levels between generations, where the present is the pivot, the centre of the spiral, looking outward to the past and future that define it. There's a way the older people have of telling a story, a way where the beginning is not the beginning, the end is not the end...

Bad Seed The Night Book & Soon
Bad Seed The Night Book & Soon
Now combined into a major TV drama, these two connected novels by award-winning writer Charlotte Grimshaw take an unflinching look at politics and power, contemporary New Zealand society and the arid morality of the privileged.

In The Night Book, doctor and party donor Simon Lampton is drawn to Roza Hallwright, though he can't quite put his finger on why. She leads a quiet, comfortable, orderly life with her politician husband David and her two stepchildren. But this peaceful existence is about to be changed forever. In the next few months there will be an election, and, if the polls are correct, Roza will become the Prime Minister's wife. She is relatively calm about the prospect, but meeting Simon will bring turmoil to both their lives.

In Soon, the Lampton family has come to spend a long hot summer at the Hallwrights' large beach house. The weather is perfect and outwardly all is well, but the harmony is disturbed when Simon Lampton's brother Ford arrives for a visit. Ford casts a cold eye over the company, barely disguising his contempt for David Hallwright. While Roza tells her young son made-up stories that reveal uncomfortable truths about their current lives, Simon will tell stories that conceal the truth about his.

Gripping, clever and moving, these two novels are an intensely humane look at the choices people make.

Bangs
Bangs
Meridee Bang is brought up in a house on Olivine Street with too many children and too little money. It's the 1960s and while The Patty Duke Show and I Love Lucy depict what life should be like, things are somewhat different in the Bang household. For Meridee the movie of her life is called Getting Dragged up on Olivine Street. In her world, family life is all about survival. Spanning the '60s, '70s and '80s, Bangs follows Meridee from her pre-school years to her early twenties. Bright, sharp and hopeful, Meridee is a witty but troubled commentator. Will she grow into the beautiful swan with oodles of money that she imagines? Or will she remain an ugly duckling, stuck forever in concrete-block Christchurch? In this new, bold novel Stevan Eldred-Grigg returns to the family at the centre of his bestselling Oracles and Miracles.

Banquos Son
Banquos Son
How do you choose between love and honour? Fleance, the 2-year old son of Scottish thane Banquo has been living rough in the words of northern England since he escaped on that fateful night ten years ago when his father was brutally murdered. He has never told anyone who he is because he has yet to discover who wanted him dead but he has learnt things - how to survive, how to use a cross bow, how not to trust anyone, but also how to love. But before he can truly give himself to the beautiful Rosie, Fleance must avenge the murder of his father and claim what is rightfully his. Through good luck or chance Fleance journeys to Scotland and meets the charismatic Duncan, 22-years-old and next in line to the throne. The two men are opposites - Fleance dark and mysterious, Duncan fair and open. We also meet Duncan's sister Rachel, beautiful and royal and at the same time a gentle foil to Rosie's passionate nature. With the throne of Scotland waiting to be claimed the choices facing Fleance will change his life forever while the secrets from his past threaten to bring down the throne of Scotland. An epic tale of love, loss and revenge set amidst the turmoil of Scotland after Macbeth.

Beat of the Pendulum
Beat of the Pendulum
From the author of the acclaimed The Wish Child comes something unexpected and fearless: a found novel. The Beat of the Pendulum is the result of one year in which Chidgey drew upon the language she encountered on a daily basis, such as news stories, radio broadcasts, emails, social media, street signs, TV, and many conversations. As Chidgey filters and shapes the linguistic chaos of her recordings, a set of characters emerge - her family, including her young daughter, and her husband, mother and sister, her friends, and an extended family formed through surrogacy and donation.

In her chronicling of moments of loveliness, strangeness, comedy and poetry and sorrow, Chidgey plays with the nature of time and its passing. The Beat of the Pendulum is also an exploration of human memory - how we acquire it, and how we lose it. This bravely experimental and immersive work draws us into the detail, reverberation and transience of a year in a life.

Bed Making Competition
Bed Making Competition
Winner of the 2018 Viva La Novella Prize

From teenage rebellion to the most painful of goodbyes, The Bed-making Competition chronicles the coming of age of Hillary and Bridgid. Told over five sections, each separated by years and kilometres, we follow the sisters as they manage abandonment, motherhood, illness and the ineffable connections of the families that we are born into and those that we create. Spiked with dark humour and bracingly familiar depictions of the overwhelming ambivalence of filial love, Anna Jackson's novella is a book of riotous energy and great heart.
