    Three memoirs about isolation, aging, and death from an author whose “private self is as intelligent and generous as her public persona” (Publishers Weekly).Fifty Days of Solitude: Faced with a rare opportunity to experiment with true solitude, Doris Grumbach decided to live in her coastal Maine home without speaking to anyone for fifty days. A New York Times Notable Book, the result is a “quiet, elegantly written” recollection about what it means to write, to be alone, and to come to terms with mortality (Publishers Weekly).  The Pleasure of Their Company: As her eightieth birthday approaches, Doris Grumbach uses the event as an opportunity both to look backward and to grow. She weaves a delightful tapestry of “surprising and meaningful observations,” allowing readers a glimpse into her life and the characters that have peopled her nearly eight decades on Earth (Library Journal).  Extra Innings: This New York Times Notable Book follows a year in Doris Grumbach’s life, beginning with the release of her memoir Coming into the End Zone, and revealing that she possesses as keen an eye in her seventies as she did when she wrote The Spoil of Flowers thirty years earlier. In this “clear, honest picture of her own old age,” Grumbach details each passing month with their trials and triumphs (Library Journal).

    Feared and enjoyed around the world, Michael Winner's column in the Sunday Times is something of a phenomenon. One day, on a whim, the great man threw in a few of his favourite Jewish jokes. From such tiny acorns a cult following has grown, and old Hymie, the butt of many jokes, took on new life. By popular demand, here is a collection of the ribald, edgy and side-splittingly funny bon mots from Winner's much-loved (and hated) alter ego. This is not for the easily offended!

    This “amalgam of essay, literary criticism, and memoir . . . [is] a tribute to the world of books,” from the acclaimed Indian writer (Chicago Tribune).   Born in London, and raised in Bombay and Calcutta, Shashi Tharoor was eleven years old when “an otherwise detestable teacher” dictated a passage from P. G. Wodehouse as a spelling test. It launched his first great passion: reading. In this illuminating collection of essays, the award-winning author, columnist, and former international diplomat, explores the many books that informed his life and literary identity.   Tharoor tells of a childhood juggling Lamb’s Tales of Shakespeare with Archie comics. He delivers a poignant homage to Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, explains his desire to rewrite Rudyard Kipling’s “overpraised” Kim as an act of postcolonial revenge, and discusses the influence of the Mahabharata, the tw-thousand-year-old Indian epic poem, on his own Great Indian Novel.   His astute views on Salman Rushdie, Aesop’s Fables, Aleksandr Pushkin, John le Carré, V. S. Naipaul, and Winston Churchill make for fascinating reading, as does his criticisms of American illiteracy and the steep price Iraqis pay just to obtain a book. In addition, his insightful takes on Hollywood and Bollywood will enlighten even the most knowledgeable cinephile. Together, these forty pieces reveal the inner workings of one of today’s most eclectic writers.

    ‘This is The Good Life meets A Year in Provence’. Sue Collins, The Nualas 
    ‘A luminous, funny and profound reading experience.’ Sebastian Barry  
    First, a dream of escaping the city… and then a century-old cottage to match the dream. Moving to a small village in the heart of the countryside was the beginning of a new life for Philip Judge and his Beloved – the beginning of life In Sight of Yellow Mountain.  
    Judge describes the season-by-season charms and frustrations that he, his Beloved, and eventually, his two growing boys experience as they adapt to life in the countryside. 
    There are highs and lows. Wellies and tweeds are bought. Vegetable patches cultivated. Lambs are born, calves die. There is weather: good and bad; health and happiness; illness and sadness. The city slicker fails miserably at Name That Grain! and makes many faux pas along the way, but ultimately, this is the story of one man, and his growing family, experiencing the pleasure that is finding home.
