In Defence of Classical Music, Andrew Ford
2 In Defence of Classical Music
Andrew Ford Australia ABC Books 2005 0733315941 / 9780733315947 Hardcover New Book 21.7 x 14.0 x 1.8 cm 
Why does anyone still bother with classical music?How can the string quartets of Brahms or the symphonies of Beethoven possibly be relevant in our post-9/11 world?In this stimulating and provocative book, composer and broadcaster Andrew Ford argues that it is because we live in such discordant times that classical music is more valuable than it has ever been.Beginning with a discussion of some common cliches, he considers the nature of classical music: whether it is, for example, an international language. Then in a series of short essays, each taking as its starting point the music of a single composer including Dowland, Haydn, Berlioz, Ravel and the contemporary Finnish composer, Kaija Saariaho, he presents a composite picture of what classical music is, what it is capable of, how it works, and how it differs from other sorts of music. Finally, Ford draws on his own music as a means of explaining what goes on in a composer's mind.Classical music, says Ford, is a source not only of consolation, but of certainty. It reaffirms creativity because it has survived, he writes. It connects us to the best of civilisation at a time when we find little civilisation in our own world.

Christine Feehan UK Piatkus 2014 0349401837 / 9780349401836 Soft cover New Book Trade Paperback 
At long last you are truly back with us . . . Zev Hunter was an elite warrior, a dark-blood dealer of death to rogue Lycans who preyed on mankind. He was a loner, never given to personal attachments, and damned fierce at his job. But Zev begins to question his past and his purpose when he awakens in the darkness of the sacred cave of warriors-and is soothed backed to consciousness by the sensuously familiar voice of one woman, the woman who has haunted his fantasies for centuries. She was Branislava, member of the Dragonseeker clan . . . Mother Earth called the ancients to witness your rebirth . . . For this half-mage, half-Carpathian temptress, the ritual of awakening Zev to the council of warriors was the only way to save him. Locked away for his own protection, the time has now come for his rebirth, for his blood to stir with that of the ancient warriors before him. He has been assured by Branislava that their fates are entwined, that their spirits are woven together for eternity and that his new purpose in life is beyond imagining. Now, with a blood-sworn vow of honor, mercy and endurance, and under the influence of a siren as bewitching as Branislava, Zev begins to wonder what his purpose is, what it means for the future of the Carpathians and what it is about his rebirth that he has to fear...

The Last Showman: The life and times of an Outback tent-boxing legend Fred Brophy, Fred Brophy and Sue Williams
6 The Last Showman: The life and times of an Outback tent-boxing legend Fred Brophy
Fred Brophy and Sue Williams Australia Penguin Books 2014 192190190X / 9781921901904 Soft cover New Book Trade Paperback 
My life has been a mad travelling show, meeting some of the strangest and greatest people who've ever lived. I've had my fair share of trouble and I'm lucky to be here. But I've always been a showman and I've done my best to preserve a precious part of an old Australia that's fast disappearing.' Son of a sideshow operator and trapeze artist, fourth-generation showman Fred Brophy grew up on the road, travelling the length and breadth of Australia. He did time in jail as a wild teenager before establishing his own successful boxing tent. It has become a star attraction in the Outback and is now the only one of its kind in the world. Fred tells stories of living on the smell of an oily rag, rescuing battlers, and becoming embroiled in some of the most bizarre adventures imaginable. This is one helluva life, full of hardship, hilarity and unexpected turns, including Fred being inducted into the Queensland Boxing Hall of Fame and receiving a Medal of the Order of Australia. 'Now ladies and gentlemen, let's go inside. The show's about to begin . . .' About the Author: Fred Brophy is an Australian icon. He's a fourth generation showman who still operates his boxing tent - the last of its kind in the world. He makes an annual appearance at Birdsville Races where the tent is a major drawcard. He was admitted into the QLD Boxing Hall of Fame in 2010, and was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in 2011 for services to charity and to the entertainment industry in keeping old-style tent boxing alive. Fred is now sixty and lives in his pub at Kilkivan, Queensland, with his partner, Sandi. He also has a pub in Cracow. A major two-part documentary about his boxing tent, Outback Fight Club, shows regularly on Qantas flights domestically and all over the world and every time he travels overseas, he invariably meets locals who've heard of him.

The Rosie Effect #2 Rosie, Graeme Simsion
7 The Rosie Effect #2 Rosie
Graeme Simsion Australia Text Publishing 2014 1922182109 / 9781922182104 Soft cover New Book Trade Paperback 
Shortlisted, Indie Book Award for Fiction, 2015Shortlisted, Booksellers Choice Award, 2015 'We've got something to celebrate,' Rosie said. I am not fond of surprises, especially if they disrupt plans already in place. I assumed that she had achieved some important milestone with her thesis. Or perhaps she had been offered a place in the psychiatry-training programme. This would be extremely good news, and I estimated the probability of sex at greater than 80%. 'We're pregnant,' she said. The Rosie Project was an international publishing phenomenon, with more than a million copies sold in over forty countries around the world. Now Graeme Simsion returns with the highly anticipated sequel, The Rosie Effect. Don Tillman and Rosie Jarman are now married and living in New York. Don has been teaching while Rosie completes her second year at Columbia Medical School. Just as Don is about to announce that Gene, his philandering best friend from Australia, is coming to stay, Rosie drops a bombshell: she's pregnant. In true Tillman style, Don instantly becomes an expert on all things obstetric. But in between immersing himself in a new research study on parenting and implementing the Standardised Meal System (pregnancy version), Don's old weaknesses resurface. And while he strives to get the technicalities right, he gets the emotions all wrong, and risks losing Rosie when she needs him most. The Rosie Effect is the charming and hilarious romantic comedy of the year.

8 The Rosie Project #1 Rosie
Graeme Simsion Australia Text Publishing 2013 1922079774 / 9781922079770 Soft cover New Book Trade Paperback 
'Funny and heartwarming, a gem of a book.' Marian Keyes A first-date dud, socially awkward, and overly fond of quick-dry clothes, Don Tillman has given up on love. Until a chance encounter gives him an idea. He will design a questionnaire - a sixteen-page, scientifically researched questionnaire - to uncover the perfect partner. She will most definitely not be a barmaid, a smoker, a drinker or a late-arriver. Rosie is all these things. She is also fiery and intelligent, strangely beguiling. And looking for her biological father - a search that a DNA expert might just be able to help her with. The Rosie Project is a romantic comedy like no other. It is arrestingly endearing and entirely unconventional, and it will make you want to drink cocktails.

11 The Bourbon Kings #1 The Bourbon Kings Series
J. R. Ward UK Piatkus 2015 0349409900 / 9780349409900 Soft cover New Book Trade Paperback 
The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood delivers the first novel in an enthralling new series set amid the shifting dynamics of a Southern family defined by wealth and privilege-and compromised by secrets, deceit, and scandal.... For generations, the Bradford family has worn the mantle of kings of the bourbon capital of the world. Their sustained wealth has afforded them prestige and privilege-as well as a hard-won division of class on their sprawling estate, Easterly. Upstairs, a dynasty that by all appearances plays by the rules of good fortune and good taste. Downstairs, the staff who work tirelessly to maintain the impeccable Bradford facade. And never the twain shall meet. For Lizzie King, Easterly's head gardener, crossing that divide nearly ruined her life. Falling in love with Tulane, the prodigal son of the bourbon dynasty, was nothing that she intended or wanted-and their bitter breakup only served to prove her instincts were right. Now, after two years of staying away, Tulane is finally coming home again, and he is bringing the past with him. No one will be left unmarked: not Tulane's beautiful and ruthless wife; not his older brother, whose bitterness and bad blood know no bounds; and especially not the ironfisted Bradford patriarch, a man with few morals, fewer scruples, and many, many terrible secrets. As family tensions-professional and intimately private-ignite, Easterly and all its inhabitants are thrown into the grips of an irrevocable transformation, and only the cunning will survive.

Since time immemorial, the Spires have sheltered humanity, towering for miles over the mist-shrouded surface of the world. Within their halls, aristocratic houses have ruled for generations, developing scientific marvels, fostering trade alliances, and building fleets of airships to keep the peace. Captain Grimm commands the merchant ship, Predator. Fiercely loyal to Spire Albion, he has taken their side in the cold war with Spire Aurora, disrupting the enemy's shipping lines by attacking their cargo vessels. But when the Predator is severely damaged in combat, leaving captain and crew grounded, Grimm is offered a proposition from the Spirearch of Albion-to join a team of agents on a vital mission in exchange for fully restoring Predator to its fighting glory. And even as Grimm undertakes this dangerous task, he will learn that the conflict between the Spires is merely a premonition of things to come. Humanity's ancient enemy, silent for more than ten thousand years, has begun to stir once more. And death will follow in its wake.

This time, even Aden's passionate determination may not be enough - because the emotionless chill of Silence existed for a reason.
