TARGET : ITALY
By Roderick Bailey
Drawing on long-classified documents, Target: Italy is the official history of the war waged by Britain's Special Operations Executive on Benito Mussolini's Fascist Italy. It is the first full account of SOE's clandestine efforts to strike at Italy and sever its alliance with Nazi Germany, uncovering missions as remarkable as a plot to assassinate Mussolini and plans to arm the Mafia. It is also the first in-depth history of SOE's attempts at causing trouble inside an enemy country as opposed to an enemy-occupied one, issuing a sobering reminder of the terrible dangers that foreign agencies can encounter when trying to encourage resistance to powerful authoritarian regimes. This is a compelling tale of desperate daring and sacrifice, climaxing in one of the most extraordinary episodes of the war: the delicate and dramatic dealings between the Allies and the Italians that led to Italy's surrender in 1943.

REPORT FROM THE INTERIOR
By Paul Auster
In the beginning, everything was alive. The smallest objects were endowed with beating hearts...Having recalled his life through the story of his physical self in Winter Journal, internationally acclaimed novelist Paul Auster now remembers the experience of his development from within, through the encounters of his interior self with the outer world. From his baby's-eye view of the man in the moon to his childhood worship of the movie cowboy Buster Crabbe to the composition of his first poem at the age of nine to his dawning awareness of the injustices of American life, Report from the Interior charts Auster's moral, political and intellectual journey as he inches his way toward adulthood through the post-war fifties and into the turbulent 1960s. Auster evokes the sounds, smells, and tactile sensations that marked his early life - and the many images that came at him, including moving images (he adored cartoons, he was in love with films), until, at its unique climax, the book breaks away from prose into pure imagery: The final section of Report from the Interior recapitulates the first three parts, told in an album of pictures. At once a story of the times and the story of the emerging consciousness of a renowned literary artist, this four-part work answers the challenge of autobiography in ways rarely, if ever, seen before.

WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR
By Doris Kearns Goodwin
When historian Goodwin was six years old, her father taught her how to keep score for 'their' team, the Brooklyn Dodgers, which forged a lifelong bond between father and daughter. Set in the suburbs of New York in the 1950s, Wait Till Next Year is a coming-of-age memoir in the era of Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee Reese and Duke Snider, when baseball truly was a national pastime that brought whole communities together. With her radio by her side and scorecard to hand, she recreates the postwar era, when the corner store was a place to share stories and neighborhoods were equally divided between Dodger, Giant, and Yankee fans. Weaved between the games and the seasons, Goodwin tells the story of a changing America - from the lunacy of the Cold War alarm drills to McCarthy and the Rosenburg trials - as well as her own loss of innocence encapsulated by her mother's death, her father's lapse into despair and the Dodger's departure from Brooklyn in 1957 following the destruction of the iconic Ebbets Field stadium. Poignant, unsentimental and deeply eloquent, Wait Till Next Year is a profound memoir about childhood and loss, baseball, and the power of sport to bind families and heal loss and reveal as metaphor the evolving heart of a nation.

YEAR IN THE LIFE OF RUTLAND
By Derry Brabbs
This portrait of Rutland reveals the landscape, architecture, fauna and flora of an unspoilt and beguiling landlocked county throughout the seasons. Rutland's motto, multum in parvo (much in little) was certainly well chosen and its diminutive borders encompass a slice of quintessential England. Rutland's two towns, Oakham and Uppingham, both have internationally renowned public schools and despite being the nation's smallest county, with the creation of the reservoir of Rutland Water, it has somehow also managed to accommodate one of Europe's largest man-made lakes. Most of the county's villages have been spared the rampant development that has blighted many of their peers lying closer to the major conurbations of England and quiet country lanes and bridleways vastly outnumber main trunk roads. The landscape character is surprisingly varied with the rolling hills of the north and west gradually subsiding into more open countryside around the eastern border with Lincolnshire. Rutland is renowned for its many historic churches and in common with the villages they serve are built from the high quality limestone that has been quarried in the region for centuries. It may not take long to drive in a straight line from one side of Rutland to the other but for those willing to venture off the beaten track, the rewards are immense and this beautifully illustrated book will encourage such further exploration.

MASTERING THE ART OF EMBROIDERY
By Sophie Long
Embroidery is currently enjoying a revival and has cast off its image as an old-fashioned hobby. Covering everything from smocking and stumpwork to beading and blackwork, this book explores a variety of handwork techniques as well as looking at machine embroidery styles. The first section of the book explores an extensive range of handwork techniques, giving a brief overview of each embroidery style. It includes a list of tools and materials required, and any specific fabric or thread considerations. Clearly illustrated step-by-step tutorials allow readers to try out the style for themselves, and inspirational galleries of contemporary work showcase the styles and effects that can be achieved with that particular technique. The second section of the book looks at machine embroidery techniques, including both free motion and digital machine embroidery. Profiles of contemporary practitioners dotted throughout the book offer an engaging insight into their professional working practices, as well as a new perspective on a range of embroidery techniques. A concluding resources section offers readers a wealth of further information on all things embroidery-related.
