  1. Acclaimed for its masterful new translation and insightful commentary, The David Story is a fresh, vivid rendition of one of the great works in Western literature. Robert Alter's brilliant translation gives us David, the beautiful, musical hero who slays Goliath and, through his struggles with Saul, advances to the kingship of Israel. But this David is also fully human: an ambitious, calculating man who navigates his life's course with a flawed moral vision. The consequences for him, his family, and his nation are tragic and bloody. Historical personage and full-blooded imagining, David is the creation of a literary artist comparable to the Shakespeare of the history plays. "Masterly." New York Times Book Review "The most compelling version . . . since the King James Bible." Robert Fagles "Read it and rejoice." David Gelernter, National Review "A splendid new translation of one of the Bible's greatest stories." Atlanta Journal-Constitution

  3. A literary debut of stark and striking brilliance of a coming-of-age story, set in the remote wilderness of northern Wisconsin. Born mute and able to communicate only by sign, the brilliant Edgar Sawtelle leads an idyllic life with his parents Gar and Trudy. For generations, the Sawtelles have raised and trained a breed of dog whose thoughtful companionship is epitomised by Almondine, Edgar's lifelong companion. But when his beloved father mysteriously dies, Edgar blames himself, if only because his muteness left him unable to summon help. Grief-stricken and bewildered by his mother's desperate affair with her dead husband's brother, Edgar's world unravels one spring night when, in the falling rain, he sees his father's ghost. After a botched attempt to prove that his uncle orchestrated Gar's death, Edgar flees into the Chequamegon wilderness leading three yearling dogs. Yet his need to face his father's murderer, and his devotion to the Sawtelle dogs, turn Edgar ever homeward. When he returns, nothing is as he expects, and Edgar must choose between revenge or preserving his family legacy!About the AuthorDavid Wroblewski grew up in rural Wisconsin, not far from the Chequamegon National Forest where The Story of Edgar Sawtelle is set. He earned his master's degree from the Warren Wilson MFA Program for Writers and now lives in Colorado with his partner, the writer Kimberly McClintock, and their dog, Lola. This is his first novel.

  4. As featured by Toni Whitmont in the October Booktopia Buzz. My Brother's Eyes tells the sad but true story of a dangerous religious cult that operated in NSW. David and John wrote the book together as they believe people need to know how secretive religious groups operate and the damage they cause to families.In fact David was involved with the group from his late teenage years and didn't leave until his early 40's. Called Zion Full Salvation Ministry, the cult began as part of an inner city Anglican Church in Sydney NSW. It was founded by a woman who claimed to have Christ's stigmata and to be the embodiment of God on earth. When the woman died 16 years later, most of the 70 odd congregation had been stripped of their finances and investments and in many cases their self esteem too.My Brother's Eyes is a troubling story but at least it has a happy ending as it tells the story of the separation of the brothers and then their eventual restoration.Already the book as attracted a lot of media interest."True insight into the psychology of a sect both from the inside and the out is very rare. This account by two brothers is illuminating, fascinating and intelligent."- Bryce Courtenay"The Ayliffe saga is gripping, baffling, horrifying, and, most importantly, redemptive. "- Phillip Yancey

  1. David Mitchell, who you may know for his inappropriate anger on every TV panel show except Never Mind the Buzzcocks, his look of permanent discomfort on C4 sex comedy Peep Show, his online commenter-baiting in THE OBSERVER or just for wearing a stick-on moustache in That Mitchell and Webb Look, has written a book about his life. As well as giving a specific account of every single time he’s scored some smack, this disgusting memoir also details: * the singular, pitbull-infested charm of the FRP (`Flat Roofed Pub’) * the curious French habit of injecting everyone in the arse rather than the arm * why, by the time he got to Cambridge, he really, really needed a drink * the pain of being denied a childhood birthday party at McDonalds * the satisfaction of writing jokes about suicide * how doing quite a lot of walking around London helps with his sciatica * trying to pretend he isn’t a total at Robert Webb’s wedding * that he has fallen in love at LOT, but rarely done anything about it * why it would be worse to bump into Michael Palin than Hitler on holiday * that he’s not David Mitchell the novelist. Despite what David Miliband might think
