Matti Friedman Pumpkinflowers
In an unnamed war in the late 1990s, the Pumpkin was a remote hilltop in Lebanon; ‘flowers’ was the military code for casualties. Part memoir, part reportage, part elegy for lost youth, this powerful narrative captures the birth of today’s chaotic Middle East and the rise of a 21st-century type of war in which there is never a clear victor.

Gerald Murnane Something for the Pain
Winner, Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Non-fiction. As a boy, Gerald Murnane became obsessed with horse racing. He discovered in the races more than he could find in religion or philosophy: they were the gateway to the imagination. A memoir for lovers of literature and of the turf. ‘An enthralling key to Murnane’s world.’ – Bernard Whimpress, NRB.

Andrew Gross The One Man
Auschwitz, 1944. To the guards Alfred Mendl is just another prisoner. But he holds knowledge that only two people in the world possess. US intelligence lieutenant Nathan Blum is about to risk his life to rescue him from a place no one can break into – or out of. ‘A must-read for lovers of fast, can’t-put-it-down thrillers.’ – Lee Child
