              When her child was taken what did she really see? A bestselling true crime writer, Nell Way tells other people's stories. But there is one story Nell won't tell.

              Why do some ideas take off - and others fail to spread? Why are some diseases predictable, and others swamped in uncertainty? And what about the outbreaks that never happen at all? We live in a world that's more connected than ever before. But even as we see our lives being shape...d by the spread of ideas, trends - and even diseases - we sometimes struggle to grasp how it actually works. Outbreaks seem to be driven by randomness and hidden laws, and in order to understand them, we need to start thinking like mathematicians. Here, epidemiologist Adam Kucharski reveals how new mathematical approaches are transforming what we know about contagion - from the revolutionary initiatives that helped tackle gun violence in Chicago to the truth behind the spread of fake news. And along the way, he'll explain how happiness and depression can spread through our friendship networks, what STDs can tell us about banking, and why some predictions go badly wrong (and why that might not be a bad thing).

              A Bookshop in Algiers

              A Bookshop in Algiers (Hardback, Main)

              By Adimi, Kaouther; Translated by Andrews, Chris

              A Bookshop in Algiers celebrates quixotic devotion and the love of books in the person of Edmond Charlot, who at the age of twenty founded Les Vraies Richesses (Our True Wealth), the famous Algerian bookstore. His entire archive was twice destroyed by the French colonial forces, ...but despite financial difficulties and the vicissitudes of wars and revolutions, Charlot carried forward Les Vraies Richesses as a cultural hub of Algiers. A Bookshop in Algiers interweaves Charlot's story with that of another twenty-year-old, Ryad, who is dispatched to the old shop in 2017 to empty it of books and repaint it. Ryad's no booklover, but old Abdallah, the bookshop's self-appointed, nearly illiterate guardian, opens the young man's mind. Cutting brilliantly from Charlot to Ryad, from the 1930s to current times, Adimi delicately packs a monumental history of intense political drama into her swift and poignant novel. But most of all, it's a hymn to literature.

Framed for the murder of Cyrus, leader of New York's most powerful gang, the Warrio...rs have to fight their way across New York back to the safety of Coney Island hunted by the city's gangs Based on the ancient writer Xenophon's `Anabasis', an account of the Spartans who fought in the Persian wars, Sol Yurick makes the gang violence of 1960's New York as mythic as Greek drama and created one of the most acute and understanding portrayals of gang culture ever published.

              In a suburban house in 1977 an elderly lady burnt her memoirs. Her life, she felt, was not one people would want to read about. The life of a woman, born into the working class, brought up to go into service, who had married, had a daughter, and gone back to work after her husban...d died, was so like that of many others, that there could be little there worth saving. This is the story of a woman who was, indeed, like many other people: not a royal, not rich, not famous, simply someone who worked hard and enjoyed her life. Beginning in 1882, she ranged through life in the country, life in the town, life in her own house, and in that of others. She travelled, married, had children and a highly successful career. For while Georgina Landemare saw herself as ordinary, her accomplishments, and the life she lived, were anything but. She started her career as a nursemaid, and ended it cooking for one of the best-known figures in British history, a man to whom food was central, not only as a pleasure by itself, but as a diplomatic tool in a time when the world was embroiled in a worldwide war. Churchill's Cook is a culinary biography: a life lived through food ranging from rural Berkshire to wartime London, via Belle Epoque Paris and prohibition-era New York. Through one eager eater, and one skilled cook, Annie Gray tells the story of the way Victorian tastes changed and 20th century food developed, taking a look into the kitchens of the time complete with evolving technology and attitudes towards domestic service. Recipes include Georgina's German Kougelhof, Curried Brains, macaroons, Boodles Orange, Mousse de Maple and 'Chocolat Cake Good'

              Together: Loneliness, Health and What Happens When We Find Connection (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Export / Airside)

              When Vivek Murthy accepted the role of Surgeon General under Obama, he thought his main focus would be tackling the opioid crisis and obesity. Instead, he discovered a much larger health crisis, one that connects the sick and the seemingly well: loneliness. We live in an age stee...ped in disconnection. As a doctor, Murthy encountered people who struggled with addiction, disease, and pain, and often found loneliness at their very core. But while other illnesses can be more visible, loneliness keeps its sufferers silent. So how can we treat it, and what does it mean to live in this lonely age? This book traces Murthy's journey to find the answers. As he uncovers the global proportions of this epidemic, and explores the root causes and devastating effects of loneliness, he also finds good news. From social support groups in Okinawa, to mentoring circles in Chicago, he looks at community efforts to combat loneliness around the world and what they can teach us about doing so in our own lives. Part personal journey, part medical exploration, part social toolkit, this essential book shows how together we can learn to build a more connected, less lonely world.
