Book Short Summary:

The Catalan modern classic, first published in 1985, now in its 50th edition, for the first time in English. The beginning of the 20th century: 13-year-old Conxa leaves her home village in the Pyrenees to work for her childless aunt. After years of hardship she finds love with Jaume - a love that will be thwarted by the Spanish Civil War. Approaching her own death, Conxa looks back on a life in which she has lost everything except her own indomitable spirit. Why Peirene chose to publish this book: ‘I fell in love with Conxa's narrative voice, its stoic calmness and the complete lack of anger and bitterness. It's a timeless voice, down to earth and full of human contradictory nuances. It's the expression of someone who searches for understanding in a changing world but senses that ultimately there may be no such thing.’ Meike Ziervogel ‘Sparse and haunting.’ Katy Guest, Independent ‘The compression is so deft, the young narrator's voice so strong, so particular, her straightforward evocation of the hard labour and rare pleasures of mountain life . . . so vibrant, that it makes me want to take scissors to everything else I read.’ Richard Lea, Guardian ‘A Pyrenean life told in a quietly effective voice.’ Daniel Hahn, Independent ‘There is an understated power in Barbal’s depiction of how the forces of history can shape the life of the powerless.’ Adrian Turpin, Financial Times ‘A masterpiece of world literature and a shining example of the virtuosity of elegant and concise prose.’ Pam Norfolk, Lancashire Evening Post ‘Air-tight believability.’ Matthew Tree, Times Literary Supplement ​ INDEPENDENT BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2010 FOYLES BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2010

Lorenzo Cuni is a fourteen-year-old loner. His wealthy parents think he is away on a school skiing trip, but, in fact, he has stowed himself away in a rarely visited cellar of his parents’ house. Surrounded by video games and tinned food, he is perfectly content in his isolation. Then he gets an unexpected visit from his estranged half-sister, Olivia. Olivia is in her twenties, she’s addicted to heroin, and she needs Lorenzo’s help. Against his better judgment, Lorenzo lets her stay. Over the next week, they form an intense bond. This brief encounter will change the course of both of their lives. From the acclaimed author of I’m Not Scared, this is a compulsive exploration of what families keep behind locked doors.

Book Short Summary:

The story of an Aboriginal boy whose house is invaded by a Hairyman - a spirit the old people call a Quinkin. When a little green tree frog lands on his windowsill, he knows she has been sent by the ancestors to help him face his fears. BOORI MONTY PRYOR: AUSTRALIA'S CHILDREN'S LAUREATE 2012-13 'I wake with a start. The doorknob turns. It's him. The Hairyman.' There's a bad spirit in our house. He's as ugly as ugly gets and he stinks. You touch this kind of Hairyman and you lose your voice, or choke to death. It's hard to sleep when a hairy wrinkly old hand might grab you in the night. And in the day you've got to watch yourself. It can be rough. Words come yelling at you that hurt. Alive with humour, My Girragundji is the vivid story of a boy growing up between two worlds. With the little green tree frog as a friend, the bullies at school don't seem so big anymore. And Girragundji gives him the courage to face his fears.
