Lab Girl is a book about work and about love, and the mountains that can be moved when those two things come together. It is told through Jahren's remarkable stories: about the discoveries she has made in her lab, as well as her struggle to get there; about her childhood playing in her father's laboratory; about how lab work became a sanctuary for both her heart and her hands; about Bill, the brilliant, wounded man who became her loyal colleague and best friend; about their field trips - sometimes authorised, sometimes very much not - that took them from the Midwest across the USA, to Norway and to Ireland, from the pale skies of North Pole to tropical Hawaii; and about her constant striving to do and be her best, and her unswerving dedication to her life's work. Visceral, intimate, gloriously candid and sometimes extremely funny, Jahren's descriptions of her work, her intense relationship with the plants, seeds and soil she studies, and her insights on nature enliven every page of this thrilling book. In Lab Girl, we see anew the complicated power of the natural world, and the power that can come from facing with bravery and conviction the challenge of discovering who you are.

Cancer Ward examines the relationship of a group of people in the cancer ward of a provincial Soviet hospital in 1955, two years after Stalin's death. We see them under normal circumstances, and also reexamined at the eleventh hour of illness. Together they represent a remarkable cross-section of contemporary Russian characters and attitudes. The experiences of the central character, Oleg Kostoglotov, closely reflect the author's own: Solzhenitsyn himself became a patient in a cancer ward in the mid-1950s, on his release from a labor camp, and later recovered. Translated by Nicholas Bethell and David Burg.

From the headlines of today comes the ultimate adventure story of discovery. Two scientists unwittingly introduce a small tribe of prehistoric people living in isolation for a half million years to the ultimate modern predator: humanity. This is their adventure combining a clash of cultures, religious ardor with the oldest stories of all: the meaning of friendship and love. The two scientists, Sarah and Richard discover the existence of a living human ancestor, Homo floresiensis on an isolated tropical island. These small Hobbit-like creatures are not the Hobbits of JRR Tolkien¿s stories, but a small tribe of prehistoric people living in seeming isolation for nearly a half million years on the Indonesian island of Irmã Flores. In their unrelenting quest for knowledge, Sarah and Richard unintentionally expose these innocents to the onslaught of the modern world including corporate raiders, Indonesian pirates and religious zealots. In the process of discovery and befriending these ancient people, Sarah and Richard rediscover their own humanity and the opportunity to find true love. This as a rousing adventure book with serious undertones about our very definition of humanity, and how we treat the other sentient creatures that occupy our small planet. What is at the core of being human, and how are we systematically destroying those very same qualities that we hold so dear?

The Boathouse is the story of 13-year old Traci Johannson's encounter with an angel. It is early September, and as she begins her eighth grade year at East Harbor Junior High, Traci's life is complicated by the surprising good fortune of being chosen by "cool" Jackie Jonas as her new best friend. Happiest on the soccer field, science lab, sailing her vintage Blue Jay across Long Island Sound or working as a “puppy-walker”, Traci’s new friendship quickly embroils her in mystery, romance and unexpected adventure. Set among famous landmarks of Cold Spring Harbor and nearby Manhattan, The Boathouse is a funny, fast-moving tale of Traci’s quest for romance, excitement, and self-discovery. From the safety of home, Traci’s journey leads her on a midnight chase across the harbor, onto the glamorous set of TV soap opera, and with nearly fatal consequences, to an unforgettable night at Shea Stadium for the sold-out Diamond Jelly concert. A quest for adventure, independence and self-knowledge, Traci’s story is most importantly, an uplifting reaffirmation of the reality of an absolute Good and the power of self-determination.

There are two kinds of grammarians, those who describe and those who prescribe. In the academic world, the prescribers are usually viewed as the conservative old guard. The descriptarians are usually seen as the activists, young bucks who believe the task of grammarians is to map or chart how speakers use their language and note its changes over time.

This volume brings together a series of papers written by the authors over a period of 15 years, in combination with new material developed specifically for this volume. The result is a coherent vision of the uses of ethnographic methods in educational settings. The volume answers the need to compare and contrast ethnographic work from Britain and the United States. Three themes unite all of the chapters. First, there is a commitment to making the familiar strange - a vital first step for all ethnographers. Second, there is a commitment to reflexivity in data collection, analysis, theorising and writing the text. Third, there is a commitment to eclecticism and pragmatism in ethnographic research. The first chapter includes not only a diagnosis of the major faults in most published ethnographies of educational settings, but a set of strategies that scholars can adopt to avoid or counteract them. In the second half of the volume, chapters exemplify the different strategies and present data gathered in a variety of educational settings from schools to higher and professional education.

The first in Brian McGilloway's thrilling DS Lucy Black series, Little Girl Lost is an addictive crime thriller set in Northern Ireland about corruption, greed and vengeance, and a father's love for his daughter. Midwinter. A child is found wandering in an ancient woodland, her hands covered in blood. But it is not her own. Unwilling – or unable – to speak, the only person she seems to trust is the young officer who rescued her, Detective Sergeant Lucy Black. Soon afterwards, DS Black is baffled to find herself suddenly moved from a high-profile case involving a kidnapping of another girl, a prominent businessman's teenage daughter. At home, Black is struggling with caring for her increasingly unstable father, and trying to avoid conflict with her frosty mother – who also happens to be the Assistant Chief Constable. As she tries to identify the unclaimed child, Black begins to realize that her case and the kidnapping may be linked by events from the grimmest days of the country's recent history – events that also defined her own troubled childhood.

The “brilliantly wry” (Lena Dunham) and “lovably awkward” (Mindy Kaling) New York Times bestseller from the creator of HBO’s Insecure. In this universally accessible New York Times bestseller named for her wildly popular web series, Issa Rae—“a singular voice with the verve and vivacity of uncorked champagne” (Kirkus Reviews)—waxes humorously on what it’s like to be unabashedly awkward in a world that regards introverts as hapless misfits and black as cool. I’m awkward—and black. Someone once told me those were the two worst things anyone could be. That someone was right. Where do I start? Being an introvert (as well as “funny,” according to the Los Angeles Times) in a world that glorifies cool isn’t easy. But when Issa Rae, the creator of the Shorty Award-winning hit series The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, is that introvert—whether she’s navigating love, the workplace, friendships, or “rapping”—it sure is entertaining. Now, in this New York Times bestselling debut collection written in her witty and self-deprecating voice, Rae covers everything from cybersexing in the early days of the Internet to deflecting unsolicited comments on weight gain, from navigating the perils of eating out alone and public displays of affection to learning to accept yourself—natural hair and all. The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl is a book no one—awkward or cool, black, white, or other—will want to miss.
