    Cheaper and more effective than Valium'.*

    Offers 'relief from anxiety, raginess or an afternoon-long tendency towards the sour'.*

    Whatever your mood, P. G. Wodehouse, widely acknowledged to be 'the best English comic novelist of the century'*, is guaranteed to lift your spirits.

    Why? Because 'Mr Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in.'*

    How? 'You don't analyse such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendour.'*

    *Olivia Williams *Caitlin Moran *Lynne Truss *Sebastian Faulks *Evelyn Waugh *Stephen Fry

    Meet the Young Men in Spats - all members of the Drones Club, all crossed in love and all busy betting their sometimes non-existent fortunes on unlikely outcomes - that's when they're not recovering from driving their sports cars through, rather than round, Marble Arch.

    These wonderful comic short stories are the essence of innocent fun. Here, you'll encounter some of Wodehouse's favourite characters - and, in 'The Amazing Hat Mystery', one of his favourite stories.

  • American Fiancee
    American Fiancee
    In this extraordinary breakout novel-a rich, devastatingly humorous epic of one unforgettable family-award-winning author Eric Dupont illuminates the magic of stories, the bonds of family, and the twists of fate and fortune to transform our lives.

    Over the course of the twentieth century, three generations of the Lamontagnes will weather love, passion, jealousy, revenge, and death. Their complicated family dynamic-as dramatic as Puccini's legendary opera, Tosca-will propel their rise, and fall, and take them around the world . . . until they finally confront the secrets of their complicated pasts.

    Born on Christmas, Louis Lamontagne, the family's patriarch, is a larger-than-life lothario and raconteur who inherits his mother's teal eyes and his father's brutish good looks and whose charms travel beyond Quebec, across the state of New York where he wins at county fairs as a larger-than-life strongman, and even in Europe, where he is deployed for the US Army during World War II. We meet his daughter, Madeleine, who opens a successful chain of diners using the recipes from her grandmother, the original American Fiancee, and vows never to return to her hometown. And we end with her son Gabriel, another ladies' man in the family, who falls in love with a woman he follows to Berlin and discovers unexpected connections there to the Lamontagne family that re-frame the entire course of the events in the book.

    An unholy marriage of John Irving and Gary Shteyngart with the irresistible whimsy of Elizabeth McCracken, The American Fiancee is a big, bold, wildly ambitious novel that introduces a dynamic new voice to contemporary literature.

    American Marriage
    An explosive love story about a marriage interrupted.

    Could you put your life on hold for twelve years? A stunning love story about family, injustice and marriage, and three people at once bound and separated by forces beyond their control.

    Newlyweds, Celestial and Roy, are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. They are settling into the routine of their life together, when they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn't commit.

    Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy's time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy's conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together.

    An American Marriage is a masterpiece of storytelling, an intimate look into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward - with hope and pain - into the future.

    Danny - Dhananjaya Rajaratnam - is an illegal immigrant in Sydney, denied refugee status after he has fled from his native Sri Lanka. Working as a cleaner, living out of a grocery storeroom, for three years he's been trying to create a new identity for himself. And now, with his beloved vegan girlfriend, Sonja, with his hidden accent and highlights in his hair, he is as close as he has ever come to living a normal Australian life.

    But then one morning, Danny learns a female client of his has been murdered. When Danny recognizes a jacket left at the murder scene, he believes it belongs to another of his clients - a doctor with whom he knows the woman was having an affair. Suddenly Danny is confronted with a choice: come forward with his knowledge about the crime and risk being deported, or say nothing, and let justice go undone? Over the course of a single day, evaluating the weight of his past, his dreams for the future, and the unpredictable, often absurd reality of living invisibly and undocumented, he must wrestle with his conscience and decide if a person without rights still has responsibilities.

  • Andromeda Evolution
    Andromeda Evolution
    "Both a kick-ass sequel and a loving tribute to one of the greatest science fiction novels ever written." Ernest Cline, author of Ready Player One.
    Fifty years after The Andromeda Strain made Michael Crichton a household name - and spawned a new genre, the technothriller - the threat returns, in a gripping sequel that is terrifyingly realistic and resonant. Half a century ago, a military satellite was knocked out of orbit and fell to Earth in northern Arizona, bringing with it a hostile microbe that nearly wiped out an entire town. The two survivors and the fallen satellite were taken to an underground laboratory code-named Project Wildfire-a top-secret emergency response protocol headed by the nation's most elite scientists, who quickly isolated an extraterrestrial organism they dubbed the Andromeda Strain. With its ability to mutate suddenly and adapt to any environment, the organism threatened to annihilate all human life from the planet.

    And then it disappeared.

    In the ensuing decades, a group assigned to track and identify any trace of the microbe has seen no sign of Andromeda. But when a bizarre anomaly appears without warning, the team discovers the tell-tale chemical signature of the deadly microparticle. Now, a new generation of Project Wildfire scientists must race to understand the Andromeda Strain and destroy it before it sets off an unprecedented worldwide catastrophe.

    The book is a collaboration between CrichtonSun and author Daniel H. Wilson (Robopocalypse).

    "The Andromeda Evolution is both a kick-ass sequel and a loving tribute to one of the greatest science fiction novels ever written. Daniel H. Wilson has taken up Crichton's mantle and reinvented the techno-thriller, by continuing the tale that invented that genre. This is a meticulously crafted adventure story, packed with action, mystery, wonder, and just enough hard science to scare the hell out of you. So good!" -Ernest Cline, author of Ready Player One

  • Animal Farm
    Animal Farm
    'All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.' Drunken Mr Jones of Manor Farm has neglected his livestock for too long. In a burst of insurgent fervour they rise up and he is deposed, with the pigs taking charge of the newly named Animal Farm. Everything runs smoothly, productivity soars, and all animals are well-fed and happy. But the further away the memory of the revolution, the more distant seem its ideals-and when Boxer the workhorse is betrayed, the horrifying extent of the pigs' corruption is revealed. Orwell's 'fairy story', a scathing satire of Soviet communism, is as potent now as it was in 1945. Animal Farm is one of literature's most electrifying examinations of power and corruption.
