In his landmark international bestsellers Guns, Germs and Steel and Collapse, Jared Diamond transformed our understanding of what makes civilizations rise and fall. Now in the third book in this monumental trilogy, he reveals how successful nations recover from crisis.

Diamond shows us how seven countries have survived defining upheavals in the recent past - from the forced opening up of Japan and the Soviet invasion of Finland to the Pinochet regime in Chile - through selective change, a process of painful self-appraisal and adaptation more commonly associated with personal trauma. Looking ahead to the future, he investigates whether the United States, and the world, are squandering their natural advantages and are on a devastating path towards catastrophe. Is this fate inevitable? Or can we still learn from the lessons of the past?

Exhibiting the awe-inspiring grasp of history, geography, economics and anthropology that marks all Diamond's work, Upheaval reveals how both nations and individuals can become more resilient. The result is a book epic in scope, but also his most personal yet.

'In the first minute following her death, Tequila Leila's consciousness began to ebb, slowly and steadily, like a tide receding from the shore. Her brain cells, having run out of blood, were now completely deprived of oxygen. But they did not shut down. Not right away . . . '
Our brains stay active for ten minutes after our heart stops beating. For Tequila Leila, each minute brings with it a new memory: growing up with her father and his two wives in a grand old house in a quiet Turkish town; watching the women gossip and wax their legs while the men went to mosque; sneaking cigarettes and Western magazines on her way home from school; running away to Istanbul to escape an unwelcome marriage; falling in love with a student who seeks shelter from a riot in the brothel where she works. Most importantly, each memory reminds Leila of the five friends she met along the way - the friends who are now desperately trying to find her.

But Deliver Us from Evil tells the story of two young women whose lives converge at a crucial juncture. The story opens in 1870, when Nthebolang's father is unjustly accused of being a witch and sentenced to death. After he has been ritually thrown off a high cliff, Nthebolang and her mother are forced to flee.
Beatrice, a fair-skinned Koranna girl, has lost her parents to captors in ongoing conflicts with the white settlers. When she moves to the small village of Nstweng, she meets Nthebolang and the two strike up an unlikely friendship.
Here, a tightly menacing tale plays out. When Nthebolang's lover is accused of witchcraft, it seems as if her childhood is repeating itself all over again. Will she be able to save him, or will he meet the same fate as her father? And is Beatrice a friend in whom Nthebolang should place her trust, or not?

After the success of The Reactive, Masande Ntshanga is back with a stellar novel, Triangulum, in which a young maths genius who is haunted by the disappearance of her mother, begins to see visions of a mysterious obelisk, maybe even a UFO, one she calls “the machine”. But her mother is not the only person who has gone missing, and the girl's preoccupation with finding her escalates when she receives a package meant for another student at her school, one who's gone missing, mailed to him by a mysterious refugee. She sets off to try to uncover the truth. Opening in 1999, the novel deals with the collapse of the homeland system in South Africa, while using elements of science fiction, and an experimental structure, to explore ideas around time as well as contemporary sexuality.

Dan Hollis lives alone, in a remote barn hidden in the woods on Exmoor. He leads a simple life and takes great pleasure in the small things - he counts the toadstools he finds on his morning walk (317), he cuts his sandwiches into triangles and arranges them geometrically on his plate, he spends his days in the workshop at the bottom of the seventeen-step staircase. For the past twenty-three years he has been making harps, choosing beautifully coloured local wood, carving and shaping it by hand, and adding his unique 'signature': a specially-chosen pebble that he sits in the wood. He enjoys his solitary, quiet routine.

Then, one day, Exmoor housewife Ellie Jacobs stumbles across the barn by chance as she's walking in the woods. She's utterly stunned by the discovery of the enchanting workshop, and Dan (taken by her surprise - and her cherry-coloured socks) gives her the gift of a beautiful cherry wood harp. But Ellie's controlling husband Clive refuses to let her keep it - and so she begins to take lessons in secret at the barn.

Captivated by Dan's innocent enthusiasm and infectious joy for the countryside, his life, his harps, Ellie starts to dream of escaping her loveless marriage - and so begins a story of innocent deception, unintended complications and life-changing consequences for them all.

With a cast of eccentric characters, including a pheasant named Phineas, this heart-warming, funny and quirky love story will stay with you long after you finish the last page.

As the First World War shatters families, destroys friendships and kills lovers, a young Palestinian dreamer sets out to find himself.
Midhat Kamal picks his way across a fractured world, from the shifting politics of the Middle East to the dinner tables of Montpellier and a newly tumultuous Paris. He discovers that everything is fragile: love turns to loss, friends become enemies and everyone is looking for a place to belong.

Isabella Hammad delicately unpicks the tangled politics and personal tragedies of a turbulent era - the Palestinian struggle for independence, the strife of the early twentieth century and the looming shadow of the Second World War. An intensely human story amidst a global conflict, The Parisian is historical fiction with a remarkable contemporary voice.
