This January, we’re starting off the year with five powerful new books.
Like a ‘therapist in your pocket’ (Books+Publishing), Life Skills for a Broken World offers a revolutionary framework for living well in a broken world, from acclaimed author and psychologist Dr Ahona Guha. The second novel by Booker Prize–longlisted author Anna Smaill, Bird Life is a lyrical and ambitious exploration of madness and what it is like to experience the world differently. A gorgeously illustrated speculative memoir, The Night Parade draws upon the Japanese myth of the Hyakki Yagyō to shift the cultural narrative around mental illness, grief, and remembrance. Now publishing in B format, Between a Wolf and a Dog is Georgia Blain’s beloved tribute to the beauty of being alive, complete with a new introduction by Charlotte Wood. Greenwood is also back in a flashy smaller format; structured like the rings of a tree, this remarkable novel moves from the future to the present to the past, and back again.
