In prose as sparse and rugged as the Lakeland fells, Rebanks takes us through the year of sheep farming in this idyllic corner of Britain. A memoir of the hardships of the farming life, it is also a moving testament to the value of tradition, rural community, and shared land over tourism and cultural urbanism.

This dense and beautiful book touches a wide range of topics including gender, race, violence, and art, taking the first few moments of a riot and meditating and expanding on them until the moment touches so much more. The act of creation, of poetry, of storytelling is the centerpiece of Kapil’s brilliant book, so I highly recommend this for writers and other artists.

One of the greatest minds in fantastical worldbuilding presents his most striking world concept to date: two hostile cities occupying a single point on the map, simultaneously visible and invisible to each other, divided as much by mental conditioning as by their strange conjoined geography. Is this science fiction, or more real a world than we care to admit?

If you're like me, and love to eat but hate cooking and cleaning, this is the cookbook you’ve been waiting for! Delicious, healthy single serving meals that take less than 20 minutes to prepare and don’t use anything that can’t be put in the dishwasher. I recommend the scrambled eggs!
