              If you had asked most people a year ago, they would have told you there was no way that school children could shift overnight to online learning; that it was impossible for banks to offer mortgage holidays; impossible to double unemployment benefits; impossible to house rough sle...epers or put a hold on evictions; impossible to offer wages subsidies and definitely impossible to get Australians to stay home from the beach and the pub. COVID-19 has resulted in changes none of us could have imagined, but what happens next? In this book, edited by Labor luminary Tanya Plibersek, a who's who of economic and social policy experts explore ways in which we can rebuild our society and economy in a strong, fair and environmentally sustainable way. The stellar line-up of contributors includes Ross Garnaut on investing in renewables for cheap energy, Sally McManus on industrial relations, Annabel Crabb on gender roles during the COVID crisis, Jenny Macklin on the new social security net, Tim Soutphommasane on race, June Oscar on keeping COVID-19 out of Indigenous communities and Peter Garrett on the environment.

              A seductive and arresting debut about female identity, sexuality, class and obsession for fans of THE GIRLS and ROANOKE GIRLS, THE VIRGIN SUICIDES. Can we ever really escape the scars of our past? Set during the last days of a disgraced boarding school, the novel weaves between p...resent day Los Angeles and Britain in the 1990s A spate of pornographic polaroids and a violent accident bookend Josephine's last year at St. John the Divine, an elite all-girls English boarding school. Divines are known for flipping their hair, harassing teachers, chasing boys and chain-smoking cigarettes. Joe and her friends are fiercely loyal, sharp tongued and witty in the way that only teenage girls can be. When Joe is forced to board with Gerry Lake, the class pariah, she feels the ground beneath her shift. An unlikely friendship with a townie named Lauren further upends her world, as does a tragedy that changes everything. Fifteen years later and Josephine, nee Sephine, is living in virtual exile, having not spoken to another Divine since those last fateful days of school. But a brief trip to the now shuttered campus reawakens long buried memories, and Sephine finds herself obsessed with her time as a Divine. As she circles ever closer to the events of that doomed spring, her life begins to unravel, derailing not just her relationships and work, but her entire sense of self. 'THE DIVINES is a cool, chilling and elegant novel that intrigues and compels the reader, while filleting the absurdities of British class hierarchy with a very, very sharp knife. In Eaton's stylish and controlled prose, the oppressive atmosphere of a girls' boarding school becomes the site of a violent and mysterious act, but also a lens through which to examine the intoxicating and unnerving power of adolescent sexuality, the dangers and consolations of friendship, and the toxic nature of the class divide. It's a terrific, entertaining and astute work and one of considerable relevance to the way we live now.' Sa

              'Changes occur all the time. They can be identifiable and dramatic, or they can emerge imperceptibly, creeping up on you until one day you realise your foundations are less solid than you imagined. At this point in your life you need to find a new path.' The Midlife Career Shift ...looks at why work is such an important part of a person's identity. The book will be filled with case studies of people who have transitioned from one career to another, or stepped back from work to embrace retirement, and will shine a light on the underlying, and sometimes unconscious, psychological and social dynamics involved. The book will offer insight, advice and a practical 7-Step Transition Plan to help the reader make decisions and take account of their domestic and professional situations, looking at what's important and how to cope with change, and providing a road map for the future and all the different opportunities it may bring. Now, more than ever, our working lives have changed and we are all getting used to a new way of doing business. Coping with transition is hard and this book will help the reader to navigate new ways of working, by tapping into the current issues being faced by all workers.

              'A book that shifted my life... Epic, game-changing, moving and brilliant' Viola Davis on Wild Seed. A PATTERNIST NOVEL: a young woman harnesses the power of a viral mutation and challenges the ruthless man who controls her. Mary is a treacherous experiment. Her creator, an immor...tal named Doro, has molded the human race for generations, seeking out those with unusual talents like telepathy and breeding them into a new subrace of humans who obey his every command. The result is Mary: a young black woman living on the rough outskirts of Los Angeles in the 1970s, who has no idea how much power she will soon wield. Doro knows he must handle Mary carefully or risk her ending like his previous experiments: dead, either by her own hand or Doro's. What he doesn't suspect is that Mary's maturing telepathic abilities may soon rival his own power. By linking telepaths with a viral pattern, she will create the potential to break free of his control once and for all-and shift the course of humanity.

              'A book that shifted my life... Epic, game-changing, moving and brilliant' Viola Davis A PATTERNIST NOVEL: a story of love and hate, in which two immortals chase each other across continents and centuries, binding their fates together - and changing the destiny of the human race.... Doro knows no higher authority than himself. An ancient spirit with boundless powers, he possesses humans, killing without remorse as he jumps from body to body to sustain his own life. With a lonely eternity ahead of him, Doro breeds supernaturally gifted humans into empires that obey his every desire. He fears no one - until he meets Anyanwu. Anyanwu is an entity like Doro and yet different. She can heal with a bite and transform her own body, mending injuries and reversing aging. She uses her powers to cure her neighbors and birth entire tribes, surrounding herself with kindred who both fear and respect her. No one poses a true threat to Anyanwu - until she meets Doro. The moment Doro meets Anyanwu, he covets her; and from the villages of 17th-century Nigeria to 19th-century United States, their courtship becomes a power struggle that echoes through generations, irrevocably changing what it means to be human.

Hardin has nothing to lose...except her. AFTER WE COLLIDED...Life will never be the same. #HESSA After a tumultuous beginning to their relationship, Tessa and Hardin were on the path to making things work. Tessa knew Hardin could be cruel, but when a bombshell revelation is dropped about the origins of their relationship-and Hardin's mysterious past-Tessa is beside herself. Hardin will always be...Hardin. But is he really the deep, thoughtful guy Tessa fell madly in love with despite his angry exterior-or has he been a stranger all along? She wishes she could walk away. It's just not that easy. Not with the memory of passionate nights spent in his arms. His electric touch. His hungry kisses. Still, Tessa's not sure she can endure one more broken promise. She put so much on hold for Hardin-school, friends, her mom, a relationship with a guy who really loved her, and now possibly even a promising new career. She needs to move forward with her life. Hardin knows he made a mistake, possibly the biggest one of his life. He's not going down without a fight. But can he change? Will he change...for love?
