    Little Crackers: Tales From The Edge
    Beda Higgins - Paperback - Saraband
    A mother struggles to bond with her newborn baby; a student obsesses about flies spreading their killer germs; an old man is at the mercy of his care home nurse. People can look 'normal', but often they're not. Inspired by the author's experiences as a nurse over the last 30 years, and written with huge compassion and warmth, this thought-provoking short story collection explores just what makes us tick - and what happens when the mind falters and breaks down. Obsession, dementia, post-natal depression, psychosis and even murder all feature in this 'Tales of the Unexpected' for the 21st century.

    Lists Of Note
    Shaun Usher - Hardback - Canongate
    Humans have been making lists for even longer than they've been writing letters. They are the shorthand for what really matters to us: our hopes and aspirations; likes and dislikes; rules for living and loving; records of our memories and reminders of the things we want to do before we die. Just as he did with 'Letters of Note', Shaun Usher has trawled the world's archives to produce a rich visual anthology that stretches from ancient times to present day. From a to-do list of Leonardo da Vinci's to Charles Darwin on the pros and cons of marriage or Julia Child's list of possible titles for what would later become an American cooking bible, 'Lists of Note' is a constantly surprising A-Z of what makes us human.

    Leith Through Time
    Jack Gillon - Paperback - Amberley
    In 1560, when Mary of Guise ran Scotland and Mary, Queen of Scots, remained in France, Mary of Guise moved the Scottish Court to Leith, a site that is now Parliament Street, off Coalhill. Serving Edinburgh's shipbuilding and repair facilities, Leith's port saw the opening of a new Wet Dock, the first of its kind in Scotland. Today, Leith is, again, part of Edinburgh, and recent regeneration has helped improve its poorer areas. This book takes you on Leith's journey, with old and new images to illustrate how the area has changed over the years.
