    “I was born, raised and lived in a Jehovah’s Witness family for forty-two years. In 2009, I left with my ten-year-old daughter. For many years, I didn’t see my parents, my brother or my son again. The experience left a deep impression on me.”
    Lucid and often funny despite the dilemmas she faces, Sophie Grimbert describes her inner struggle between the little soldier of God she was taught to be and the free woman she always dreamed of becoming. At a time when “new religions” are gaining ground, this hopeful book is both a demonstration of the strategies developed by fundamentalist movements and an indispensable instruction manual for anyone hoping to escape them.

    An “excellent” new edition of the definitive biography of the architectural genius, with more than a hundred photos (Booklist, starred review).   Upon publication, this book was praised by the Chicago Tribune and “the most comprehensive book ever written about the master designer and, by any measure, the best,” while the Christian Science Monitor noted that “Schulze has both the gift of an architectural historian able to render Mies’s building innovations and that of a biographer able to paint the humanity and shortcomings of the man.” Newsweek called it “a revelation.”   Now, this biography of the iconic modernist architect and designer has been extensively updated, providing an even more enlightening and intimate portrait of a man who helped to create the twentieth century world.   “This excellent revised edition…has 138 illustrations, incisive descriptions of Mies’ innovative creations and a fascinating account of his Pyrrhic victory in a lawsuit against his disaffected client Edith Farnsworth.”—Booklist (starred review) “This authoritative biography of Mies van der Rohe has been updated through building records, the recollections of students and a court transcript. It's a gripping read.”—Christopher Woodward, Building Design

    Many smallholders have plunged in at the deep end and learnt the hard way, through experience.
    
    But Phyllida Barstow, author of the childhood autobiography My Animals and Other Family, was already involved in animal husbandry when,
    
    as a young woman, she embarked on her own smallholding enterprise.
    
    Here is her lively, informative and witty account of her first-hand experience throughout her lifetime in Gloucestershire, with chickens, dogs, cats, horses, sheep, peacocks, alpacas and even honey bees.
    
    As she points out, smallholding is not a summer idyll but, truly, a job for all seasons, all hours, all weathers. She also has to deal with fallen stock, pest control, disease outbreaks and slaughter.
    
    Her tips include those on animal handling, training, breeding and delivery. Her wry and practical attitude towards her animals is imbued with respect and often affection for her charges.
    
    This account of the realities of modern smallholding is both entertaining and informative.

    Kris was living a totally normal life as a twenty-three-year-old: travelling the world, falling in love, making plans.However, when she found a lump in her boob and was told that it was not only cancer, but also incurable, life took on a completely new meaning. She was diagnosed at an age when life wasn't something to be grateful for, but a goddamn right.Little did Kris know it was cancer that would lead her to a life she had never considered: a happy one. From founding a charity to visiting Downing Street, campaigning at festivals to appearing on TV, and being present at the birth of her nephew; in the face of all the possible prognoses, Kris is surviving, thriving, and resolutely living.Glittering a Turd is more than just another cancer memoir; it's a handbook for living life to the fullest, shining a new perspective on survival and learning to glitter your own turd, whatever it might be. Kris has survived the unsurvivable for twelve years. Here, she begins to discover why.'This honest and beautiful book is a story of resilience and doing life your way' Fearne Cotton'With some extraordinary writing and brutal honesty, Kris' story never lingers on tragedy. Instead, we are offered humour, motivation and hope. It is a manifesto for how to be alive. It will leave you calm, hopeful and unafraid. A bold reminder to live your life your way. You'll be endlessly inspired by her perspective' Dawn O'Porter'A story of how a diagnosis of incurable cancer can compel you to live your life more vividly that you could have ever imagined. Kris's writing is frank and funny, the lightness of her tone in stark contrast with the graveness of her experience. By the end I wanted to give her a standing ovation. (After checking my boobs of course)' Annie Mac'Kris writes with such ease, sprinkling humour and glitter in all the right places. Glittering a Turd is the life-affirming boost we all need' Giovanna Fletcher
