Greetings All

February brings the welcome beginning of this year's new books – a welcome sight when we've just caught up with our 2020 reading.

Here's our selection from this month's new releases. There's Max Porter's new novel based on the last days of Francis Bacon, a paperback edition of Jenny Offill's Weather (one of our faves from last year) and new fiction from Steven Carroll, John Kinsella and a Romanian classic from Mihail Sebastian. In non-fiction there's a new book from Stan Grant, the timely Truth-Telling from Henry Reynolds, a new edition of Janet McCalman's classic Struggletown . And much else of interest!

Good reading.
