Meerkats seem to get everywhere these days. But what to do with all the corpses when they reach the end of their fluffy little lives? Don't just throw them away! Why not turn one upside down and use it as a penholder? Or cut it in half and use it to replace a table leg? Peppered with brilliant, mercilessly dark humour, 101 Uses for a Dead Meerkat is a handy illustrated guide to making the best with that pile of cutesy cadavers that you just don't know what to do with. It's fiendishly inventive, more than a little sick, and very funny indeed. (No meerkats were harmed in the making of this book. Unfortunately.)

Penguins mate for life and Gus and Waldo are happy in their monogamous relationship, but modern life just keeps getting in the way. As the two penguins face the challenges of every-day neuroses - are they thin enough? Beautiful enough? Reading the right magazines? Watching the right programmes? And fulfilling their partner in every way? Successful at work, have enough money and what about that network of friends? - we enjoy the couple's journey through the perils of pop culture and society's obsessions. Things never run quite as smoothly as hoped, but in the end the message is clear: love conquers all, especially when there's a good dose of hanky panky thrown in. With the potential to be a huge cult hit, and perfect for the Christmas market, readers will identify with Gus and Waldo's dilemmas. They will charm the nation and bring a little Antarctic magic to their lives.

For a period of just over a year, Harry Mathews set about following Stendhal's dictum for writers of "twenty lines a day, genius or not." What resulted is a book that is part journal, parts writer's manual, and part genius. First undertaken as a kind of discipline, the work molds itself into a penetrating reflection on daily events in Mathews's life, his friends, himself, and the act of writing.

“More than a whiff of The Lovely Bones wafts through this haunting domestic noir from bestseller Jewell…Skillfully told by several narrators (some of them ghostly), Jewell’s gripping novel is an emotionally resonant story of loss, grief, and renewal.” —Publishers Weekly Ten years after her teenage daughter goes missing, a woman connects with a charming single father, but she is still haunted by her child’s disappearance in this “deeply emotional and incredibly clever” (Mail Online) thriller from the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author of I Found You. Ellie Mack was the perfect daughter. She was fifteen, the youngest of three. She was beloved by her parents, friends, and teachers. She and her boyfriend made a teenaged golden couple. She was days away from an idyllic post-exams summer vacation, with her whole life ahead of her. And then she was gone. Now, her mother Laurel Mack is trying to put her life back together. It’s been ten years since her daughter disappeared, seven years since her marriage ended, and only months since the last clue in Ellie’s case was unearthed. So when she meets an unexpectedly charming man in a café, no one is more surprised than Laurel at how quickly their flirtation develops into something deeper. Before she knows it, she’s meeting Floyd’s daughters—and his youngest, Poppy, takes Laurel’s breath away. Because looking at Poppy is like looking at Ellie. And now, the unanswered questions she’s tried so hard to put to rest begin to haunt Laurel anew. Where did Ellie go? Did she really run away from home, as the police have long suspected, or was there a more sinister reason for her disappearance? Who is Floyd, really? And why does his daughter remind Laurel so viscerally of her own missing girl?
