You Should Have Left

Daniel Kehlmann
Authors:
Daniel Kehlmann

A thrilling exploration of psychological disturbance and fear from the bestselling and prize-winning author of Measuring the World.On retreat in the wintry Alps with his family, a writer is optimistic about completing the sequel to his breakthrough film. Nothing to disturb him except the wind whispering around their glassy house. The perfect place to focus. Intruding on that peace of mind, the demands of his four-year-old daughter splinter open long-simmering arguments with his wife. I love her, he writes in the notebook intended for his script. Why do we fight all the time?Guilt and expectation strain at his concentration, and strain, too, at the walls of the house. They warp under his watch; at night, looking through the window, he sees impossible reflections on the snow outside.Then the words start to appear in his notebook; the words he didn't write.Familiar and forbidding by turns, this is an electrifying experiment in form by one of Europe's boldest writers. The ordinary struggles of a marriage transform, in Kehlmann's hands, into a twisted fable that stays darkly in the mind.

Rob Lofthouse
Authors:
Rob Lofthouse

Written by a retired British soldier, Trouble at Zero Hour is a breathless and vivid story, dramatizing three of the key Allied operations that turned the tide of the Second World War.6 June, 1944, somewhere over the Normandy coastline: Robbie Stokes sits in a glider, his Bren resting on the floor between his outstretched legs. The nose lowers and the glider descends rapidly: ten minutes of stomach-churning twists and turns until suddenly the call goes up to 'BRACE'. The belly makes contact with the ground and the first Allied troops tumble out into occupied Europe.For new recruit Robbie Stokes it is the beginning of ten months of brutal and relentless conflict that take him from D-Day, via Operation Market Garden and the battle for Arnhem Bridge, to the Rhine Crossing and the final push for victory. Three operations that change the course of the war and test Robbie Stokes and his band of brothers to their limits. If they fail, then the Allied invasion fails. They must succeed through their longest days.

One year ago a young archaeological intern named Rip Cantrell made an impossible discovery in the sandstone rock of the Sahara. Now, at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, scientists have recovered another such alien aircraft.The expedition is funded by a powerful pharmacology magnate, convinced these extra terrestrial saucers are key to the breakthrough necessary for mankind to achieve intergalactic travel. Not to mention the profits associated with it.Yet it is not only humankind with a vested interest in the discovery. For an alien refugee - stranded on earth for the past millennium, and now masquerading as one of the operation's technicians - it represents a potential beacon to his kin.When this alien finds the aircraft's communications gear to be damaged, he is forced to make contact with the only people on earth with previous experience of summoning a saucer: Rip Cantrell, his uncle Egg, and ex-pilot Charley Pine. As the world's population lives in fear of alien intrusion, and its powers fight for position, Rip and Charley find themselves presented with their own dilemma: to stay grounded on their earth, or to seek a destiny beyond the stars.
