    An astonishing account of Cuban exiles, CIA informants, and cocaine traffickers in Florida by the New York Times–bestselling author of South and West. In Miami, the National Book Award–winning author of The Year of Magical Thinking looks beyond postcard images of fluorescent waters, backlit islands, and pastel architecture to explore the murkier waters of a city on the edge.   From Fidel Castro and the Bay of Pigs invasion to Lee Harvey Oswald and the Kennedy assassination to Oliver North and the Iran–Contra affair, Joan Didion uncovers political intrigues and shadowy underworld connections, and documents the US government’s “seduction and betrayal” of the Cuban exile community in Dade County. She writes of hotels that offer “guerrilla discounts,” gun shops that advertise Father’s Day deals, and a real-estate market where “Unusual Security and Ready Access to the Ocean” are perks for wealthy homeowners looking to make a quick escape. With a booming drug trade, staggering racial and class inequities, and skyrocketing murder rates, Miami in the 1980s felt more like a Third World capital than a modern American city. Didion describes the violence, passion, and paranoia of these troubled times in arresting detail and “beautifully evocative prose” (The New York Times Book Review).   A vital report on an immigrant community traumatized by broken dreams and the cynicism of US foreign policy, Miami is a masterwork of literary journalism whose insights are timelier and more important than ever.

    The History of All Saints’ Tudeley

    For over a thousand years, the church at Tudeley has been a centre of Christian worship and is one of the oldest churches in the Weald of Kent. Over the years, the church has experienced both peaceful times and more uncertain periods as the parish has reflected the wider changes and unrest of English society. The countryside around Tudeley was a place of pre-Roman industry,but now is one of rural tranquillity. The church building itself reflects many of these changes, with stonework on top of Saxon foundations, eighteenth-century brickwork on top of stonework and a Victorian north aisle extension. But no change is more striking than the reordering of 1966 and the installation of stained-glass windows by the renowned Russian Jewish artist Marc Chagall. All Saints' Tudeley is the only church to have all of its windows created by Chagall. People from across the world now come to enjoy the beauty of the windows and the inspiration of a rural church steeped in history, a place of continuing Christian worship for the local community.

    Following on from Wink Lorch’s award-winning Jura Wine book, Wink’s second book focuses on the eclectic wines of Savoie, Bugey and other French Alpine wine regions.
     
    After years hidden away in the craggy mountains, wines from Savoie and Bugey are now offered in restaurants and wine stores worldwide. This book tells the story of the men and women who make these characterful wines, how they have tamed the steep hillsides to plant the vines and mastered their unusual grape varieties.
     
    Wink Lorch, who has lived part-time in the French Alps for over two decades, drove across numerous Alpine passes and climbed countless steep vineyards to explore Savoie and its neighbouring wine regions – Bugey and Isère, and, further south, Hautes-Alpes and the Clairette de Die area.
     
    Alongside almost 120 producer profiles, Wines of the French Alps: Savoie, Bugey and beyond summarizes the appellations, terroir, grapes, winegrowing and winemaking, and explores the history that has made these wines worthy of a place on the finest tables. It features over 200 colour photographs by Mick Rock of Cephas and other professional photographers; it also includes 13 specially-commissioned maps and geological diagrams.
     
    Wines of the French Alps is a more complete documentation on the wines of Savoie, Bugey and beyond than anything ever published, even in French. It is set to become an essential handbook for wine lovers and wine professionals alike.
     
    Wines of the French Alps was short-listed for Best Drinks Book in the André Simon Awards 2019 and has received numerous positive reviews.

    Writers’ relationships with their surroundings are seldom straightforward. While some, like Jane Austen and Thomas Mann, wrote novels set where they were staying (Lyme Regis and Venice respectively), Victor Hugo penned Les Misérables in an attic in Guernsey and Noël Coward wrote that most English of plays, Blithe Spirit, in the Welsh holiday village of Portmeirion.
    
    
    Award-winning BBC drama producer Adrian Mourby follows his literary heroes around the world, exploring 50 places where great works of literature first saw the light of day. At each destination – from the Brontës’ Yorkshire Moors to the New York of Truman Capote, Christopher Isherwood’s Berlin to the now-legendary Edinburgh café where J.K. Rowling plotted Harry Potter’s first adventures – Mourby explains what the writer was doing there and describes what the visitor can find today of that great moment in literature.
    
    
    Rooms of One’s Own takes you on a literary journey from the British Isles to Paris, Berlin, New Orleans, New York and Bangkok and unearths the real-life places behind our best-loved works of literature.
