      Description
      ’How often, honestly, does the unveiling in translation of a ’forgotten genius’ live up to the hype? Well here’s one that does: Raduan Nassar’ Times Literary Supplement

      ’I felt the powerful strength of my family overrunning me like a heavy rush of water’

      For André, a young man growing up on a farm in Brazil, life consists of ’the earth, the wheat, the bread, our table and our family’. He loves the land, fears his austere, pious father who preaches from the head of the table as if it is a pulpit, and loathes himself, as he starts to harbour shameful feelings for his sister Ana. Lyrical and sensual, told with biblical intensity, this classic Brazilian coming-of-age novel follows André’s psychological and sexual awakening, as he must choose between body and soul, duty and freedom.

      Bio
      Raduan Nassar was born in 1935, in Pindorama, in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. He was raised mainly in small rural towns, then went on to study Law at the University of São Paulo. Like his Lebanese immigrant family, the author’s life has been bound in agriculture and writing. Ancient Tillage (1975) and A Cup of Rage (1978), a novella, are his two major literary works. He also worked as a journalist and editor for the newspaper Jornal do Bairro, jointly founded with his brothers. Although an acclaimed literary author, since 1985 Raduan Nassar has led a private existence dedicated to farming and livestock production. He retired to a smaller farm in 2011, having donated his entire commercial property to the agricultural departments of the Federal University of São Carlos for the creation of a new campus.

      Raduan Nassar became a sensation with his first novel. Now published in English, the world will come knocking.—The Independent

      One of the most important novels in Brazilian literature—Revista Cult

      Nassar’s book is a masterwork, a rare exception in a constantly levelling out literature business—Die Zeit

      While reading, and marveling at, Ancient Tillage and A Cup of Rage —both of them set on farms in the Brazilian outback, both of them stylistically bold achievements—we are struck by two other feelings: disappointment that Nassar wrote so little, and disbelief that it took so long to render his unique voice into English.—Malcolm Forbes, The National

      Description
      Comedian and civil rights activist Dick Gregory’s million-copy-plus bestselling memoir—now in trade paperback for the first time.

      “Powerful and ugly and beautiful…a moving story of a man who deeply wants a world without malice and hate and is doing something about it.”—The New York Times


      Forty-five years ago, in 1964, an incredibly honest and revealing memoir by one of the America’s best-loved comedians and activists, Dick Gregory, was published. With a shocking title and breathtaking writing, Dick Gregory defined a genre and changed the way race was discussed in America.

      Telling stories that range from his hardscrabble childhood in St. Louis to his pioneering early days as a comedian to his indefatigable activism alongside Medger Evers and Dr. Martin Luther King, Gregory’s memoir riveted readers in the sixties. In the years and decades to come, the stories and lessons became more relevant than ever, and the book became a classic. Today, the book has sold over a million copies and became core text about race relations and civil rights, and continues to inspire readers everywhere with Dick Gregory’s incredible story about triumphing over racism and poverty to become an American legend.
      Bio
      A friend of luminaries including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Medgar Evers, and the forebear of today’s popular black comics, including Larry Wilmore, W. Kamau Bell, Dave Chappelle, and Trevor Noah, Dick Gregory was a provocative and incisive cultural force for more than 50 years. As an entertainer, he always kept it indisputably real about race issues in America, fearlessly lacing laughter with hard truths. As a leading activist against injustice, he marched at Selma during the Civil Rights Movement, organized student rallies to protest the Vietnam War; sat in at rallies for Native American and feminist rights; fought apartheid in South Africa; and participated in hunger strikes in support of Black Lives Matter. He died in 2017.

    The Art of Statistics Learning from Data David Spiegelhalter

      Description
      Statistics has played a leading role in our scientific understanding of the world for centuries, yet we are all familiar with the way statistical claims can be sensationalised, particularly in the media. In the age of big data, as data science becomes established as a discipline, a basic grasp of statistical literacy is more important than ever.

      In The Art of Statistics, David Spiegelhalter guides the reader through the essential principles we need in order to derive knowledge from data. Drawing on real world problems to introduce conceptual issues, he shows us how statistics can help us determine the luckiest passenger on the Titanic, whether serial killer Harold Shipman could have been caught earlier, and if screening for ovarian cancer is beneficial.

      How many trees are there on the planet? Do busier hospitals have higher survival rates? Why do old men have big ears? Spiegelhalter reveals the answers to these and many other questions - questions that can only be addressed using statistical science.

      Bio
      Sir David John Spiegelhalter is a British statistician and Chair of the Winton Centre for Risk and Evidence Communication in the Statistical Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. Spiegelhalter is one of the most cited and influential researchers in his field, and was elected as President of the Royal Statistical Society for 2017-18.

      There is just one problem with famous statisticians: they tend not to be very famous. One notable exception is the
      late Hans Rosling, who made Time Magazine’s list of the world’s most 100 influential people in 2012. Perhaps his closest living equivalent is now Sir David Spiegelhalter. There is something in here for everyone…. A call to arms for greater societal data literacy…Spiegelhalter’s work serves as a reminder that there are passionate, self-aware statisticians who can argue eloquently that their discipline is needed now more than ever.—Alan Smith, The Financial Times

      An important and comprehensive new book—The New Yorker

      The Art of Statistics is in the great educational tradition of its publishing imprint, Pelican Books: an attempt to get everyone up to speed with the practical uses of statistics, without pages of terrifying equations or Greek letters. In a series of spry, airy chapters, he succeeds fabulously…. A book that crams in so much statistical information and nonetheless remains lucid and readable is highly improbable, and yet here it is. In an age of scientific clickbait, ’big data’ and personalised medicine, this is a book that nearly everyone would benefit from reading. (The Spectator)—The Spectator

      David Spiegelhalter’s The Art of Statistics shines a light on how we can use the ever-growing deluge of data to improve our understanding of the worldThe Art of Statistics will serve students well. And it will be a boon for journalists eager to use statistics responsibly - along with anyone who wants to approach research and its reportage with healthy scepticism.—Nature

      This is an excellent book. Spiegelhalter is great at explaining difficult ideas…Yes, statistics can be difficult. But much less difficult if you read this book.—The Evening Standard

      Like the fictional investigator Sherlock Holmes, Spiegelhalter takes readers on a trail to challenge methodology and stats thrown at us by the media and others. But where other authors have attempted this and failed, he is inventive and clever in picking the right examples that spark the reader’s interest to become active on their own.—Engineering and Technology

      What David Spiegelhalter does here is provide a very thorough introductory grounding in statistics without making use of mathematical formulae. And it’s remarkable. Spiegelhalter is warm and encouraging - it’s a genuinely enjoyable read…This book should be required reading for all politicians, journalists, medics and anyone who tries to influence people (or is influenced) by statistics. A tour de force.—Popular Science

      David Spiegelhalter is probably the greatest living statistical communicator; more than that, he’s one of the great communicators in any field. This marvellous book will transform your relationship with the numbers that swirl all around us. Read it and learn. I did.—Tim Harford, presenter of ’More or Less’ and author of ’The Undercover Economist’

      Do you trust headlines telling you…that bacon, ham and sausages carry the same cancer risk as cigarettes? No, nor do I. That is why we need a book like this that explains how such implausible nonsense arises in the first place. Written by a master of the subject …this book tells us to examine our assumptions. Bravo.Standpoint

      David Spiegelhalter combines clarity of thinking with superb communication skills and a wealth of experience of applying statistics to everyday problems. The result is The Art of Statistics, a book that manages to be enjoyable as well as informative: an engaging introduction for the lay person who wants to gain a better understanding of statistics. Even those with expertise in statistics will find much within these pages to stimulate the mind and cast new light on familiar topics. A real tour de force which deserves to be widely read.—Dorothy Bishop, Professor of Developmental Neuropsychology and Wellcome Trust Principal Research Fellow in the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford

      If I had to trust just one person to interrogate statistical data, I’d trust David Spiegelhalter. He is a master of the art. Here, he shows us how it’s done. The result is brilliant; nothing short of an essential guide to finding things out - delivered through a series of detective-like investigations of specific examples ranging from sexual behaviour to murder. The technical essentials are also all here: from averages to infographics, algorithms and Bayesian statistics - both their power and their limitations. All this makes The Art of Statistics a first call for all those setting out on a career or study that involves working with data. But beyond that, it’s self-help for anyone with a serious desire to become a clued-up citizen in a world of numbers. If you want pat answers, or meat for your prejudices, go elsewhere. But if you want to develop the skills to see the world as it is, and to tell it how it is - honestly and seriously - this is the book.—Michael Blastland, creator of BBC Radio 4’s More or Less, and co-author of ’The Tiger That Isn’t - Seeing Through a World of Numbers’

      In this wonderfully accessible introduction to modern statistics, David Spiegelhalter has created a worthy successor to classics such as Moroney’s Facts from Figures. Using many real examples, he introduces the methods and underlying concepts, showing the power and elegance of statistics for gaining understanding and for informing decision-making.—David J. Hand, Emeritus Professor of Mathematics at Imperial College London

      H.G. Wells is frequently quoted as having said that “Statistical thinking will one day be as necessary for efficient citizenship as the ability to read and write.” That day has certainly come. This wonderful book provides a non-technical and entertaining introduction to the basic tools of statistical thinking. Wells would have approved.—Professor Sir Adrian Smith FRS, Director, Alan Turing Institute

      ______________________________

      How far would you run to escape your life?

      Anita lives in Karachi’s biggest slum. Her mother is a maalish wali, paid to massage the tired bones of rich women. But Anita’s life will change forever when she meets her elderly neighbour, a man whose shelves of books promise an escape to a different world.

      On the other side of Karachi lives Monty, whose father owns half the city and expects great things of him. But when a beautiful and rebellious girl joins his school, Monty will find his life going in a very different direction.

      Sunny’s father left India and went to England to give his son the opportunities he never had. Yet Sunny doesn’t fit in anywhere. It’s only when his charismatic cousin comes back into his life that he realises his life could hold more possibilities than he ever imagined.

      These three lives will cross in the desert, a place where life and death walk hand in hand, and where their closely guarded secrets will force them to make a terrible choice.

      Description
      The official companion book to the HBO series Gentleman Jack created by Sally Wainwright and starring Suranne Jones

      In 1834, Anne Lister made history by celebrating and recording the first ever known marriage to another woman. This is her remarkable, true story.


      Anne Lister was extraordinary. Fearless, charismatic and determined to explore her lesbian sexuality, she forged her own path in a society that had no language to define her. She was a landowner, an industrialist and a prolific diarist, whose output has secured her legacy as one of the most fascinating figures of the 19th century. Gentleman Jack: The Real Anne Lister follows Anne from her crumbling ancestral home in Yorkshire to the glittering courts of Denmark as she resolves to put past heartbreak behind her and find herself a wife. This biographical portrait introduces the real Gentleman Jack, featuring unpublished journal extracts decrypted for the first time by series creator Sally Wainwright and historian Anne Choma.

      “Anne Choma’s Gentleman Jack is not just a tie-in to the TV series, but a probing and page-turning study of legendary diarist Anne Lister, full of original insights and freshly decoded material from the 1830s period of Lister’s hunt for a wife.” -Emma Donoghue, New York Times bestselling author of Room
