The Book of Lies
by Mary Horlock

The Author

Mary Horlock spent her childhood in Guernsey and moved to England at the age of eighteen. She read History and History of Art at Cambridge, and went on to work at Tate Britain and Tate Liverpool. She is a former curator of the Turner Prize. Mary lives in London with her partner and their two children. Although she has written widely on contemporary art, this is her first novel.

Praise for Mary Horlock

'This is an unforgettable and brilliant debut. It establishes Mary Horlock as an original, compelling and powerful new voice in British fiction.'
Hanif Kureishi

The Plot

Catherine Rozier is fifteen years old and a murderer. She wants to explain what happened that stormy night on the cliffs, but the adults around her understand that some things are best kept hidden. Fifty years earlier, another Rozier stands on the same cliff-edge. Charlie, a teenager during the German Occupation of the island, is frustrated by the adults around him, and their lack of resistance. He sets on a path that will change the Rozier family's life forever. The Book of Lies is an unforgettable novel about a truly astonishing period of history. It takes us on a journey with two captivating characters that the reader will not forget.

I Think I Love You
by Allison Pearson

The Author

Allison Pearson was born in South Wales. An award-winning journalist, she was named Newcomer of the Year at the British Book Awards for her first novel, I Don't Know How She Does It. Allison has written for many magazines and newspapers including the Independent on Sunday, Observer and the London Evening Standard. For four years, she was the popular Wednesday columnist of the Daily Mail. Allison is now a staff writer at the Daily Telegraph. She lives in Cambridge with her family.

Praise for Allison Pearson

'Her social observation is unerringly accurate…Pearson is unafraid of dealing with the big stuff…so beautifully written that it brought tears to my eyes, as well as a wry smile.'
Daily Telegraph

The Plot

A hilarious and moving story about a young girl who falls hopelessly in love with her teenage idol and, almost a quarter of a century later, with her life in pieces, finally gets to meet him. Deliciously witty and piercingly melancholy, I THINK I LOVE YOU asks what happens when the man you thought you loved turns out to be someone else entirely.

Following the global success that was I don't Know How She Does It, this darker, brilliantly structured book explores female friendship - from the brutal hierarchy of the teen years to the comfort and support provided by other women in later life. Pearson examines the fierce, often conflicted bond between mothers and daughters.
