    A Mother's Love

    By Barbara Greene, Barbara Greene, Vanessa Howard
    Authors:
    Barbara Greene, Barbara Greene, Vanessa Howard
    In recent months the 'right-to-die' issue has gripped the nation. Two cases have captured the public imagination like no other: Frances Inglis, convicted of murder for ending the life of her brain-damaged son, and Kay Gilderdale, acquitted for assisting the suicide of her chronically ill daughter. These parallel stories provide a window onto a world of terrible suffering, where women feel that the only course of action open to them is to help their own children to die. What would you do if your child was experiencing unbearable pain? Is it a mother's duty in such a situation to perform the ultimate act - to kill the person she loves more than anything else in the world? Is the strength of a mother's love something that can be reflected in the law? A recent poll suggested that around 80% of British people support a change in the law to allow assisted suicide, a crime currently punishable by up to 14 years in prison - and an even higher proportion believe that relatives should be allowed to help their loved ones to die.

    Me and Kaminski

    By Daniel Kehlmann
    Authors:
    Daniel Kehlmann
    A wryly comic account of a career in meltdown, from the author of Measuring the World'An accessible and humorous road trip into the worlds of art and journalism, satirising both' - New StatesmanSebastian Zollner is set on writing the biography of the painter Manuel Kaminski. Yet Kaminski - once a pupil of Matisse, now an ailing recluse - is not the kind of character to willingly embrace such a project. And Zollner - inept, charmless, and with scant knowledge of art history - is hardly the man to undertake it. So it's a good job Sebastian has an ace up his sleeve, and that Kaminski will have little choice in the matter... Half road novel, half satire on the contemporary art scene, Kaminski and Me is a wryly humorous meditation on art, memory, and identity.

    The Making of the Fittest

    By Sean B. Carroll
    Authors:
    Sean B. Carroll
    For more than a century, we were restricted to studying evolution from the outside, observing its progress only through the fossil record. No longer. We can now also read the DNA record. As well as containing the operating instructions for everyday existence and for making the next generation, DNA contains a vast and detailed history of the three-billion-year development of life on Earth. It is a living chronicle of evolution, pinpointing the precise changes that have enabled Earth's marvelous creatures to inhabit the planet's shifting environments, from the freezing waters of the Antarctic to the lush canopy of the rainforest. Captivating and lucid, The Making of the Fittest delves deep into the DNA record to reveal not just how the fittest survive but also how they are made.
