O by Steven Carroll


From the acclaimed and multi-award-winning Steven Carroll, comes O – the world’s most famous erotic novel.


In the dark times of 1943 Occupied France, Dominique starts an illicit affair with a distinguished publisher, a married man. He introduces her to the Resistance, and she comes to have a taste for the clandestine life - she has never felt more alive. Shortly after the war, to prove something to her lover, she writes an erotic novel about surrender, submission and shame.


The story of O was never meant to be published, yet became a national scandal and success. But what is the story really about - Dominique, her lover, or the country and the wartime past it would rather forget?


Other People’s Houses by Kelli Hawkins


A stunningly tense and compelling debut from Kelli Hawkins, it follows a woman who, still grieving for her young son ten years after his death, spends her weekends going to open houses in Sydney’s wealthy North Shore and imagining the lives of those who inhabit them.


When she comes across the perfect house, with the perfect family – including a boy who bears a striking resemblance to her son – her hungover hobby turns into a dangerous obsession.


Other People’s Houses is perfect for all fans of The Woman in the Window and The Girl on the Train.


Liftoff by Eric Berger


Liftoff: Elon Musk and the Desperate Early Days That Launched SpaceX is the dramatic inside story of the first four historic flights that launched SpaceX—and Elon Musk—from a shaky start-up into the world's leading edge rocket company.


Eric Berger takes readers inside the wild early days that made SpaceX. Focusing on the company’s first four launches of the Falcon 1 rocket, he charts the bumpy journey from scrappy underdog to aerospace pioneer. Drawing upon exclusive interviews with dozens of former and current engineers, designers, mechanics, and executives, including Elon Musk. The enigmatic Musk, who founded the company with the dream of one day settling Mars, is the fuel that propels the book, with his daring vision for the future of space.
