  • From ''one of the greatest writers of our time'' (Toni Morrison) - the author of Their Eyes Were Watching God and Barracoon - a collection of remarkable short stories from the Harlem Renaissance With a foreword by Tayari Jones, author of An American Marriage ''Genius'' Alice Walker ''Rigorous, convincing, dazzling'' Zadie Smith on Their Eyes Were Watching God In 1925, college student Zora Neale Hurston - the sole black student at Barnard College, New York - was living in the city, ''desperately striving for a toe-hold on the world.'' During this period, she began writing short works that captured the zeitgeist of African American life and transformed her into one of the central figures of the Harlem Renaissance. Nearly a century later, this singular talent is recognised as one of the most influential and revered American artists of the modern period. Hitting a Straight Lick with a Crooked Stick is an outstanding collection of stories about love and migration, gender and class, racism and sexism that proudly reflect African American folk culture. Brought together for the first time in one volume, they include eight of Hurston''s ''lost'' Harlem stories, which were found in forgotten periodicals and archives. These stories challenge conceptions of Hurston as an author of rural fiction and include gems that flash with her biting, satiric humour, as well as more serious tales reflective of the cultural currents of Hurston''s world. All are timeless classics that enrich our understanding and appreciation of this exceptional writer''s voice and her contributions to America''s literary traditions.

  • A BBC RADIO 4 BOOK OF THE WEEK ''Esther Safran Foer has written of her family in a way that is both uniquely and heartbreakingly her story and a deeply important testament for Ashkenazi Jews. Her memories are our important history.'' Robert Peston, ITV Political Editor A moving and powerful inter-generational memoir about story and memory. Mine is a family of readers and writers. Our house is filled with books. There are contemporary design books on the coffee table in the living room, legal books in my husband''s home office, and piles of children''s books for when my grandchildren visit. However, the side table next to my bed is piled with books about the Holocaust. Framed maps of shtetls line my office walls and pictures of relatives killed in the Holocaust are displayed on our family gallery walls. Sometimes I feel like I exist across two polarized realities, experiencing great fulfillment from family, friends, and a meaningful career, and, at the same time, finding the joy of my life tempered by its shadows. In the darker corners of my mind live ghosts and demons who visit me from the shtetls in Ukraine where my family came from. Some of the details that make these visions so vivid are imagined because I grew up in a family where memories were too terrible to speak of. This is the true story of four generations who have been dealing with the Holocaust and its aftermath. We are four generations, survivors and survivors of survivors, storytellers and memory keepers. And we''re still here.

    Two women connected across generations through the power of words.

    In 1955 eighteen-year-old Janet Jones must keep the love she shares with her best friend a secret. As in the age of McCarthyism to be gay is to sin.

As she juggles a romance she must keep hidden and a new-found ambition to write and publish her own story, she risks exposing herself - and Marie - to a danger all too real.
    Sixty-two years later, Abby Cohen can''t stop thinking about her senior project - classic 1950s lesbian pulp fiction. She feels especially connected to one author, ''Marian Love'', and becomes determined to track her down and discover her true identity. Is Abby prepared for what she will find?

    A stunning story of bravery, love, how far we''ve come and how much farther we have to go.
