SHORTLISTED FOR THE COSTA FIRST NOVEL AWARD 2015 LONGLISTED FOR THE GUARDIAN FIRST BOOK AWARD 2015 LONGLISTED FOR THE DESMOND ELLIOTT PRIZE 2016 WINNER OF THE SUNDAY INDEPENDENT NEWCOMER OF THE YEAR, IRISH BOOK AWARDS 2015 WINNER OF THE GEOFFREY FABER MEMORIAL PRIZE FOR FICTION You find me on a Tuesday, on my Tuesday trip to town. A note sellotaped to the inside of the jumble-shop window: COMPASSIONATE & TOLERANT OWNER. A PERSON WITHOUT OTHER PETS & WITHOUT CHILDREN UNDER FOUR. A misfit man finds a misfit dog. Ray, aged fifty-seven, ‘too old for starting over, too young for giving up’, and One Eye, a vicious little bugger, smaller than expected, a good ratter. Both are accustomed to being alone, unloved, outcast – but they quickly find in each other a strange companionship of sorts. As spring turns to summer, their relationship grows and intensifies, until a savage act forces them to abandon the precarious life they’d established, and take to the road. Spill Simmer Falter Wither is a wholly different kind of love story: a devastating portrait of loneliness, loss and friendship, and of the scars that are more than skin-deep. Written with tremendous empathy and insight, in lyrical language that surprises and delights, this is an extraordinary and heartbreaking debut by a major new talent

A new retrospective monograph on the work of internationally renowned contemporary artist Anish Kapoor, winner of the 1991 Turner Prize and creator of Monumenta 2011. One of the most highly acclaimed sculptors working today, Anish Kapoor enjoys immense popularity and has represented Britain at the Paris and Venice Biennales. His first solo exhibition in Paris in 1980 was followed by numerous others around the world, including Sky Mirror installed at Rockefeller Center in 2006. Kapoor is the fourth artist to create an original work for the immense Grand Palais in Paris. Photographs of this major new work, never before published, complete this monograph. At once metaphysical, profoundly poetic, and visually explosive, Kapoors work evokes a visceral as well as meditative response. Color reproductions spanning more than three decades of artistic output are accompanied by an incisive interview with the artist, while Kapoors work is situated and explored in a critical essay by a leading Harvard scholar.

In “Girl on Girl”, a high-school girl goes to disturbing lengths to help an old friend; in “Meteorologist Dave Santana”, an insatiable temptress pursues the one man she can’t have; and in the title story, a long fraught relationship comes undone when three friends get impossibly lost on a lake that is impossible to get lost on. In Diane Cook’s perilous worlds, the quotidian surfaces conceal darkly surreal elements that illuminate our more curious, troubling and bewildering behavior.

In a London flat, two young boys face the unbearable sadness of their mother's sudden death. Their father, a Ted Hughes scholar and scruffy romantic, imagines a future of well-meaning visitors and emptiness. In this moment of despair they are visited by Crow - antagonist, trickster, healer, babysitter. This self-described sentimental bird is attracted to the grieving family and threatens to stay until they no longer need him. As weeks turn to months and physical pain of loss gives way to memories, this little unit of three begin to heal. In this extraordinary debut - part novella, part polyphonic fable, part essay on grief, Max Porter's compassion and bravura style combine to dazzling effect. Full of unexpected humour and profound emotional truth, Grief is the Thing with Feathers marks the arrival of a thrilling new talent.
