My Katherine Mansfield Project by Kirsty Gunn
Award winning novelist Kirsty Gunn writes a lyrical essay exploring the ideas of home and belonging – and of the profound influence of Katherine Mansfield’s work on her own creative journey.
“A beautiful and mood-provoking book….the writing went into my consciousness and I felt the loneliness, the sadness, the love and identification with Katherine Mansfield….It was beautiful.”
– Jane Campion

Cyclogeography – Journeys of a London Bicycle Courier
By Jon Day
Day lifts the lid on the solitary life of the courier. Travelling the unmapped byways, short-cuts and edgelands of the city, couriers are the declining, invisible workforce of the city. The parcels they deliver – either commonplace or illicit – keep the city – and capitalism - running.
“Magically good. Jon Day conjures the secret city of the cyclist, revealing himself over the course of his swooping journeys as an astonishing writer, capable of dizzyingly elegant and thrilling flights of thought.” – Olivia Laing
