We’re excited to start 2021 with six fantastic new books: a selection of fiction and nonfiction. A tale of a country town and its rhythms, Alison Gibbs’ debut novel Repentance is also the story of modern Australia at one of its flashpoints, told tenderly and beautifully through the eyes of characters you won’t forget. Beowulf is a radical new feminist interpretation of the epic poem by Maria Dahvana Headley, which brings to light elements never before translated into English. Prosopagnosia by Sònia Hernández is a narratively ambitious reflection on art, beauty, motherhood, and identity.
The Diet Compass by science journalist Bas Kast is a practical, science-based guide to eating well and living longer, which has sold over a million copies worldwide. #ENTRYLEVELBOSS by careers expert Alexa Shoen is personal training for your career, based on a step-by-step plan that includes all the intel you need about getting hired in today’s world, in today’s industries, and with today’s tools. The 10th-anniversary edition of Sex at Dawn — the book that radically re-evaluates the origins and nature of human sexuality.
