Elizabeth Gilbert / The Signature of All Things / 501 p. / Bloomsbury Publishing / € 15,90

Elizabeth Gilbert is most well known for her 2006 bestseller “Eat, Pray, Love”. Her latest novel, “The Signature of All Things”, is a big novel, about a big century.

Above all it has an unforgettable heroine in Alma Whittaker, a woman of the Enlightened Age who stands defiantly on the cusp of the modern. Watch here how Elizabeth Gilbert talks about "The Signature of All Things".

 

John Grisham / Sycamore Row / 400 p. / Hodder & Stoughton / € 23,90

John Grisham brings us the  long-awaited, powerful sequel to “A Time to Kill”. It features hero lawyer Jake Brigance, in a heady tale of suicide, contested wills and racial tension in America's Deep South. As filled with page-turning twists as it is with legal mastery, “Sycamore Row” proves beyond doubt that John Grisham is in a league of his own. Watch here how John Grisham talks about the publication of his first novel "A Time To Kill" and how the sequel "Sycamore Row" came to be. 

 

Jonathan Franzen, Karl Kraus / The Kraus Project / 318 p. / Macmillan / € 20,90

In “The Kraus Project” Franzen not only presents his definitive new translations of Kraus but annotates them spectacularly, with supplementary notes from the Kraus scholar Paul Reitter and the Austrian writer Daniel Kehlmann. Kraus was a notoriously cantankerous and difficult author, and in Franzen he has found his match.

The latest book from the comedic mastermind behind TheOatmeal.com, Matthew Inman.

Alan Greenspan / The Map and the Territory- Future of Forecasting / 388 p. / Penguin / € 29,90

Like all of us, Alan Greenspan was forced by the financial crisis of 2008 to question some fundamental assumptions about risk management and economic forecasting. This title integrates the history of economic prediction, and the work of behavioural economists to offer a grounding in what we can know about economic forecasting and what we can't. 

 

Matthew Buchholz / Alternate Histories of the World Buchholz / 184 p. / Penguin / € 19,90

This remarkable collection of maps, photographs, engravings and paintings from the early ages to modern day provides a stunning new look at the world as defined by our struggles and alliances with the monsters and supernatural creatures that have defined our existence.

 

Book Bag - A Room of One's Own - Virginia Woolf / € 19,90

The Penguin canvas bag is THE bag to be seen with. What could be more fashionable than a stylish, classic, canvas Penguin bag, handstitched in England. What you fill it with is up to you, but we'd suggest a lovely selection of Penguin titles! This bag from the new Penguin Collection features the original Penguin cover of Viriginia Woolf's famed feminist polemic “A Room of One's Own”.
