Jeffrey Lockhart has been summoned to The Convergence: a remote and secret compound where death is exquisitely, cryogenically controlled. He is there to say goodbye to his stepmother, Artis, who has chosen to surrender her dying body; preserving it until a future time when biomedical advances and new technologies can return her to a life of transcendent promise. And his healthy father, Ross, might join her. Hypnotic and seductive, Don DeLillo's Zero K is a visionary novel about the legacies we leave, the nobility of death, and the ultimate worth of 'the mingled astonishments of our time, here, on earth.'

Everyone's got that history, I guess. Everyone's got a story. When Emily meets enigmatic and dazzling actress Tamsin, her life changes. Drawn into Tamsin's world of Soho living, boozy dinners, and cocktails at impossibly expensive bars, Emily's life shifts from black and white to technicolour and the two women become inseparable. Tamsin is the friend Emily has always longed for; beautiful, fun, intelligent and mysterious and soon Emily is neglecting her previous life - her work assisting vulnerable women, her old friend Lucy - to bask in her glow. But when a bombshell news article about a decades-old sexual assault case breaks, Emily realises that Tamsin has been hiding a secret about her own past. A secret that threatens to unravel everything. Young Women is a razor sharp novel that slices to the heart of our most important relationships, and asks how complicit we all are in this world built for men.

Douglas Stuart's first novel Shuggie Bain, winner of the 2020 Booker Prize, is one of the most successful literary debuts of the century so far. Published or forthcoming in forty territories, it has sold more than one million copies worldwide. Now Stuart returns with Young Mungo, his extraordinary second novel. Both a page-turner and literary tour de force, it is a vivid portrayal of working-class life and a deeply moving and highly suspenseful story of the dangerous first love of two young men.

Growing up in a housing estate in Glasgow, Mungo and James are born under different stars--Mungo a Protestant and James a Catholic--and they should be sworn enemies if they're to be seen as men at all. Yet against all odds, they become best friends as they find a sanctuary in the pigeon dovecote that James has built for his prize racing birds. As they fall in love, they dream of finding somewhere they belong, while Mungo works hard to hide his true self from all those around him, especially from his big brother Hamish, a local gang leader with a brutal reputation to uphold. And when several months later Mungo's mother sends him on a fishing trip to a loch in Western Scotland with two strange men whose drunken banter belies murky pasts, he will need to summon all his inner strength and courage to try to get back to a place of safety, a place where he and James might still have a future.

Imbuing the everyday world of its characters with rich lyricism and giving full voice to people rarely acknowledged in the literary world, Young Mungo is a gripping and revealing story about the bounds of masculinity, the divisions of sectarianism, the violence faced by many queer people, and the dangers of loving someone too much.

Meet our young hero Cappuccino - barista to the President - who's never lived anywhere other than in the big man's compound. Left in the care of Maria-I'm-not-your-mother when his real mom died, Cappuccino spent his boyhood in the laundry room before receiving his true calling.

From behind his impressive chrome coffee machine, Cappuccino is a fly on a very important wall. And, more importantly, he is in love with the captivating Naomi, an assistant to the President.

But life is about to serve Cappuccino a bitter cup when he finds the Minister without Portfolio - and moral compass to The Boss - dead in the presidential home.

Filled with warm humour, John Hunt's novel serves up a double shot of pathos as it moves from playful satire to true tragedy whilst examining the inner workings of power.

Never before published in South Africa, the ten interconnected stories of You Can't Get Lost In Cape Town - presented here in a slightly revised edition - comprise one of the most distinguished works of South African literature. The book portrays a young coloured woman's coming of age in apartheid South Africa, spanning the mid-1950s to the mid-1980s. The stories reflect the search of many coloured South Africans for identity in a harshly hierarchical society where white was held above coloured and coloured above black.
In a timeless narrative constructed of vivid episodes that span almost thirty years in the protagonist's life, the book details Frieda Shenton's coming of age as a woman; and as a writer. In telling Frieda's story, Zoë Wicomb explores class, race, gender and culture.

It is only as Frieda finds the courage to tell her “terrible stories” - working through her tangled feelings for her family, her heritage, her country and her art - that she can at last begin to create her own place in a world where she has always felt herself an exile.
