For many men, middle age arrives too fast and without due warning. One day you are young, free and single; the next you are bald, fat and washed-up, with weird tendrils of hair growing out of your ears. None of it seems fair. With age should come dignity and respect, but instead everyone makes tired jokes about buying a motorbike. Marcus Berkmann isn't having it. Having marked his fiftieth birthday by hiding under the duvet for six weeks, the author of the cricket classics Rain Men and Zimmer Men is now determined to find some light in the all-consuming darkness. Musing over birth, death and all the messy stuff in between, he concludes that however dreadful you look in the mirror today, it will be much worse in ten years' time. His brutally candid despatch from the frontline is not for the faint-hearted, which is to say anyone under thirty-five.

Join him on a journey of discovery, into what the midlife crisis really is, and whether there's a better way to go at it than frittering away time and money trying to pretend you're really younger than you are.

Pinerolo, Italy. April 1945. At a fascist conference, a writer disappears and is found dead at the bottom of a cliff. Thirty years later, a young man—a political activist or maybe a terrorist—interviews the survivors to try to uncover the truth about what happened and its consequences. Who was this writer? What did he believe in? Why, shortly before his death, did he save a man who could have killed him? Where is his lost work? And what does any of this have to do with a teenager in contemporary Milan involved in a violent confrontation with the police? Bold and incisive, Don’t Shed Your Tears for Anyone Who Lives on These Streets is a gripping examination of art-as-politics and politics-as-crime.

In Shed Style, Selina Lake reveals how even the smallest garden can be home to an outdoor retreat. From the traditional gardener’s potting shed to a writer’s cabin to an artist's studio, Selina explores sheds, cabins, huts, greenhouses, pods and all manner of garden structures, providing ample inspiration for anyone dreaming of their own garden hideaway. She reveals how any existing shed, cabin or outbuilding can become a versatile work or social space rather than just somewhere to store the lawnmower. If you are short of space indoors, as so many of us are nowadays, a garden office, creative space, ‘she shed’ or work pod can provide a perfect solution. A greenhouse or potting shed will appeal to keen gardeners, while a cosy shepherd’s hut, perhaps with a bijou wood-burning stove, can work as guest accommodation. In Shed Style, Selina reveals how to create the shed of your dreams, presenting hundreds of fresh ideas for decorating and styling both the interior and exterior as well as suggestions for lighting, fabrics, furniture and other accessories. Shed Style is perfect for anyone who wants to make the most of their outdoor space.

Their love was criminal. Their passion, too strong to deny. The consequences would change their world for centuries... As a watcher, Gerwalta Faust allows werewolves no trust. Andreas Baron may be roguishly handsome and deceptively charming, but that makes him no less an animal. Thoughts at the top of her mind as they seek a missing member of Andreas's pack, and a constant reminder that her growing attraction is not only irrational, it's a betrayal to her kind. But how can she be true to her purpose if she is not also true to her heart? Andreas despises the women who rule the Black Forest with silver fists and dark souls, and having to sojourn beyond its borders beside a watcher hardly thrills. What does, however, is finding in Gerwalta a creature of compassion and intelligence, one who begins to look beyond his fur to see the man within. Could a watcher ever mate an alpha? Will his heart give him any choice? Even as they see out their mission in far-off lands, an immutable truth awaits at home: it's forbidden for a watcher and a wolf to love, and the punishment is death. The complete trilogy of the tragic love between the infamous Red Riding Hood and the King of Werewolves.
