In un luogo fatto di polvere, dove ogni cosa ha un soprannome, dove il quartiere in cui sono nati e cresciuti è chiamato «la Fortezza», Beatrice e Alfredo sono per tutti «i gemelli». I due però non hanno in comune il sangue, ma qualcosa di più profondo. A legarli è un'amicizia ruvida come l'intonaco sbrecciato dei palazzi in cui abitano, nata quando erano bambini e sopravvissuta a tutto ciò che di oscuro la vita può regalare. Un'amicizia che cresce con loro fino a diventare un amore selvaggio, graffiante come vetro spezzato, delicato e luminoso come un girasole. Un amore nato nonostante tutto e tutti, nonostante loro stessi per primi. Ma alle soglie dei vent'anni, la voce di Beatrice è stanca e strozzata. E il cuore fragile di Alfredo ha perso i suoi colori. Perché tutto sta per cambiare. Un romanzo d'esordio intenso e bruciante. Una voce narrante che rimarrà a lungo nella mente e nel cuore dei lettori.

Recently divorced actor Stephen C. McQueen (no relation, unfortunately) seems to have a knack for bad luck. But a failed marriage, a stalled career, a judgmental ex-wife, a distant daughter, a horrid little studio apartment in the far reaches of the London suburbs–all these pathetic elements seem to pale in the chiseled face of his newest tormentor: the Twelfth Sexiest Man in the World, Josh Harper. Josh is the star of Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know, a biographical play about Lord Byron–and Stephen is his understudy. Not only is Josh fantastically, infuriatingly good-looking, internationally renowned, and remarkably talented, he’s also frustratingly healthy. No matter how many all-night booze-and-coke benders Josh goes on, he always shows up at the stage door for his call like clockwork. Stephen doubts he’ll ever get his chance to slip on the puffy shirt and tight breeches of Byron and tread the boards in the role that would certainly be the break he’s always waited for. And just when Stephen’s sure he couldn’t resent Josh more, he meets Josh’s witty, restless American wife, Nora . . . and discovers he likes her a little too much. Another man might curse his luck at finding that his potential dream woman is a rival’s wife, but at this point, Stephen would expect nothing else. Caught between his stirring feelings for Nora, the demands of an insistent and secretive Josh, and his lifelong desire for a real career in show business, Stephen must make a terrible decision: Will it be the girl or the fame? A hapless, bumbling bloke in love, an arrogant megastar with a potpourri of addictions, a sexy married woman out of her element in the fast lane–David Nicholls brings them all together in this knockout romantic comedy.

'this is my book and i am writing it by my own hand' The year is eighteen hundred and thirty one when fifteen-year-old Mary begins the difficult task of telling her story. A scrap of a thing with a sharp tongue and hair the colour of milk, Mary leads a harsh life working on her father's farm alongside her three sisters. In the summer she is sent to work for the local vicar's invalid wife, where the reasons why she must record the truth of what happens to her - and the need to record it so urgently - are gradually revealed.

Nell Leyshon's imaginative powers are considerable' Independent 'Brontë-esque undertones . . . a disturbing statement on the social constraints faced by 19th-century women' FT 'A small tour de force - a wonderfully convincing voice, and a devastating story told with great skill and economy' Penelope Lively 'I loved it. The Colour of Milk is charming, Brontë-esque, compelling, special and hard to forget. I loved Mary's voice - so inspiring and likeable. Such a hopeful book' Marian Keyes 'Brilliant, devastating and unforgettable' Easy Living Nell Leyshon's first novel, Black Dirt, was longlisted for the Orange Prize, and shortlisted for the Commonwealth prize. Her plays include Comfort me with Apples, which won an Evening Standard Award, and Bedlam, which was the first play written by a woman for Shakespeare's Globe.

Formidable Miss Doggett fills her life by giving tea parties to young academics and acting as watchdog of the morals of North Oxford. Anthea, her great-niece, is in love with a dashing upper-class undergraduate with political ambitions. Of this, Miss Doggett thoroughly approves. Anthea's father, however, an Oxford don, is tired of his marriage and carrying on in the most unseemly fashion with his student Barbara Bird - they have been spotted together at the British Museum! Miss Doggett isn't aware, though, that under her very own roof the lodging curate has proposed to her paid companion Miss Morrow. She wouldn't approve of that at all.
