As heard on BBC Radio 4's Book of the Week 'A delightful and entertaining memoir' Woman and Home When Jacqueline moves to south-west France with her husband, she embraces rural village life and buys two pigs to rear for slaughter. But as she gets to know the animals better, her English sentimentality threatens to get in the way and she begins to wonder if she can actually bring herself to kill them. This is a memoir about that fateful decision, but it's also about the ethics of meat eating in the modern age, and whether we should know, respect and even love the animals we eat. At its heart, this book is a love story, exploring the increasing attachment of the author for her particular pigs, and celebrating the enduring closeness of humans and pigs over the centuries.

In the seven long-ish poems of her new collection, multi-talented writer Anne Kennedy explores past and present, here and there, north and south, earth and paradise, hello and goodbye. In unfolding couplets, 'The Darling North' engages with a woman's past, her lover, her new landscapes, exploring the results of yearning and directional possibilities on the shores of the Hokianga. F. E. Maning and Seamus Heaney hover in the background as touchstones. 'Hands On' reconfigures the Little Red Riding Hood, Three Little Pigs and the Gingerbread Man stories; while other poems touch on a lost wedding ring, a significant birthday, remembered hills. Finally Kennedy offers two long poems about the dislocation of migration - a loose sequence of here-and-there sonnets that deal with the upheaval of a family move from New Zealand to Hawai'i; and a final poem, 'Hello Kitty, Goodbye Piccadilly', in which the change and disturbances, effort and turmoils of adjusting to 'Paradise' move towards acceptance and belonging. Though separate and various in tone and form, these poems wave and tip their hats to one another - adding further pleasures to this sparklingly original collection by one of our most interesting writers.

Imagine going through life with a name like “Big Bad Wolf.” No matter what you do, people expect you to act like your name suggests. As you can expect, this wolf grew up to be the meanest, grumpiest wolf ever. In a word, he was BAD. In two words, he was BIG BAD. This heavily researched, and completely accurate book illustrates the sequence of events that resulted in the terrorizing of three little pigs: Peabody, Herbert, and Mayfield Pig. Is it a tragic tale not for the faint of heart, or a really funny bedtime story suitable for small children? You decide.
