News & Reviews
Before I begin, I feel compelled to give you this warning: Do not read this book in a public place. It will result in wild, irrepressible laughter that will ultimately lead to unwanted stares from strangers. Our Tiny, Useless Hearts provides an absolutely hilarious and unforgettable insight into the life of a suburban family on the brink of crisis.
Microbiologist Janice gives up her weekend to babysit her nieces, Mercedes and Paris, while her sister Caroline faces the devastating breakdown of her marriage. Henry has left Caroline for the much younger (and prettier) grade school teacher Martha. In an effort to save their marriage, Caroline follows Henry and Martha to Noosa.
With the addition of the nosy neighbours Craig and Lesley who are having their own marital issues, Janice’s ex-husband Alec, and pizza guy Brayden, this book is a one-stop shop of brilliant wit and accurate observation.
Liane Moriarty sums this book up perfectly: “A new Toni Jordan is always a special pleasure and her latest is a wonderful, witty treat of a novel: cutting and clever, and yet so very romantic, as though P.G. Wodehouse had satirised life in the suburbs.”
American novelist Hanya Yanagihara brings to life the incredible story of four college friends – the actor Willem, the painter JB, the architect Malcolm and the lawyer Jude – in this powerful and perfectly crafted novel.
A Little Life commences shortly after the friends graduate from college in Massachusetts and move to New York to follow their dreams. It then takes you on a rollercoaster ride that spans over three decades, where friendships strengthen and weaken, and romantic relationships begin and end. And, amongst all of these ups and downs, we observe the trajectory of their professional careers.
I have never read a book like this before, nor do I believe I ever will again. The writing is flawless and the characters are so well developed that by page 100 you know them well enough to call them your friends.
Throughout the novel, the characters are stretched beyond unthinkable limits. By the time I finished, I was physically and mentally spent and I marvelled that a book had made me feel that way. This book is overwhelmingly sad; but where there is darkness, there is also light.
We love to read. And we love to imagine.
We especially love imagining what each one of our wonderful readers are like in real life! We get many amazing orders, and each one is filled with incredible detail about who you are and what you’re like.
So, we teamed up with an illustrator and brought to life one of our customers - Kimberly W from Victoria. Based on the information she gave us in her order, we put together our interpretation of what she might be like in real life!
“I'm a secondary maths teacher at a specialist science school, so I love to learn about different things. I'm on maternity leave at the moment and love playing with my 3 month old son. I also sew a bit (mainly presents for babies at the moment) and I love to read but get overwhelmed trying to find new books.”
