I Want Snow!

Tony Ross (Author)

When the Queen goes on a trip and sends back a photo of her feeding some penguins, Little Princess decides she wants snow too. The whole palace tries all kind of things - from sandmen instead of snowmen to mudballs instead of snowballs. But this little royal won't be satisfied until she gets what she wants... and sometimes not even then!

A Year and a Day

Isabelle Broom (Author)

A heartwarming and heartbreaking story about love and life in one of Europe's most romantic cities, Prague.

'Evocative, will clutch at your heart. Perfect escapism is a winter evening' Sunday Mirror

Welcome to a city where wishes are everywhere

For Megan, a winter escape to Prague with her friend Ollie is a chance to find some inspiration for her upcoming photography exhibition. But she's determined to keep their friendship from becoming anything more. Because if Megan lets Ollie find out about her past, she risks losing everything - and she won't let that happen again . . .

For Hope, the trip is a surprise treat from Charlie, her new partner. But she's struggling to enjoy the beauty of the city when she knows how angry her daughter is back home. And that it's all her fault . . .

For Sophie, the city has always been a magical place. This time she can't stop counting down the moments until her boyfriend Robin joins her. But in historic Prague you can never escape the past . . .

Three different women.

Three intertwining love stories.

One unforgettable, timeless city.

'The city is evoked in wonderful detail. An unashamedly romantic tale. There is plenty of love, laughter and tragedy to get the pages turning' Sunday Express

'Think love, laughter and tears all shaken up in a Prague snowglobe. Just fab'
Claire Frost, Fabulous Magazine

If This is Paradise, I Want My Money Back

Claudia Carroll (Author)

Charlotte is hovering between life and death, but it's taken a coma for her to realize she's made a complete mess of her short time on earth. Not to mention the five precious dating years she's just wasted on the cheating, faithless James Kane.

But after a quick peek at the afterlife, she decides it's not all it's cracked up to be either. So, when she is offered the chance to go back to earth, this time as a fully fledged angel, she jumps at it. As always, there's a catch. The person she's assigned to watch over is ...a certain Mr James Kane. And this is where the fun really starts.

Well, just because she's passed on doesn't necessarily mean she's moved on, does it?

Every volume brings together representative selections from the work of three poets now writing, allowing the curious reader and the seasoned lover of poetry to encounter the most exciting voices of our moment.

". . . by the bollocks I mind, by the virgin I'm like,
by the smell of teen spirit, the punch that I spike,

"by hydro and chronic and eight-legged sparks,
by G-strings and tassels, by bummers and narcs,

"by the temples I razed with a swish of my tail,
by the models of Jupiter I built to full scale,

"I am a man of few words, each one a thrown switch.
Shall I name the mouth-breathers at whom I pitch

"with superstitious loathing these excretions oozing bile?
Then pull up a chair. This could take a while."
- MICHAEL ROBBINS, 'Space Mountain'

"I was born as a woman, I talk you to death,
or else your ear off,
or else you to sleep. What do I have, all the time
in the world, and a voice that swings brass back
and forth, you can hear it, and a focal point where
my face should be. What do I have, I have absolute
power, and what I want is your money, your drool,
and your mind, and the sense of myself as a snake,
and a garter in the grass . . .
Why do I do it is easy, I am working
my way through school. Give me the money
for Modernism, and give me the money
for what comes next."
- PATRICIA LOCKWOOD, 'The Hypno-Domme Speaks, and Speaks and Speaks'

". . . we just hugged, sat on a high up bench
somewhere not that secret really
off the Lewes road, afternoon of gold
and magpies on a cusp. But no wholly

"depth-charge branch is too white, padded
shot a mushroom cap a cheapened rink
ice age glass of frozen, uplit tongues
unleaven how I never meant for you to drink

"a glass of day-old wholly sincere
spit who under maketh spring sew
tongues into my pocket tongue
of day-old really salt-sincere snow

"bell ring
lhude sing
and not just sitting on a bench
how much we want to fuck in circling spring . . ."
- TIMOTHY THORNTON, 'Broadcast'

The Hand

Georges Simenon (Author) , Linda Coverdale (Translator)

A new translation of George Simenon's taut, devastating psychological novel set in American suburbia. The inspiration for the new play by award-winning playwright David Hare.

'I had begun, God knows why, tearing a corner off of everyday truth, begun seeing myself in another kind of mirror, and now the whole of the old, more or less comfortable truth was falling to pieces'

Confident and successful, New York advertising executive Ray Sanders takes what he wants from life. When he goes missing in a snow storm in Connecticut one evening, his closest friend begins to reassess his loyalties, gambling Ray's fate and his own future.

'The romans durs are extraordinary: tough, bleak, offhandedly violent, suffused with guilt and bitterness, redolent of place . . . utterly unsentimental, frightening in the pitilessness of their gaze, yet wonderfully entertaining' John Banville

'One of the greatest writers of the twentieth century . . . Simenon was unequalled at making us look inside, though the ability was masked by his brilliance at absorbing us obsessively in his stories' Guardian

'A supreme writer . . . unforgettable vividness' Independen
