Brenda Niall Can You Hear the Sea? My Grandmother’s Story

Acclaimed biographer Brenda Niall gives us the life of Liverpool-born Aggie Maguire, who set sail for Australia at just 19. Aggie and her sister set up two little schools in Victoria, and Aggie also taught in a one-room school in remote northern Victoria. She married a grazier, but when he died tragically in 1908 she brought up her seven children in her own way.

Oliver Sacks The River of Consciousness

How do we think? Is memory reliable? How do we construct our sense of time, our visual world? In her review of this posthumous collection of his essays, Jean called Sacks ‘this brilliant and original thinker, enriching our understanding of ourselves and our world’.  You can read her full review here.

Edward Berridge Villain

What would drive an ordinary person to kill? Injustice? Revenge? Internet dating? For Alistair, it could be all those things. The mystery isn’t who the killer is, it’s what he’ll do next and whether he’ll get away with it. The dark new novel from the author of The Lives of the Saints.
