Description:

When the author was a kid, a big white sleek ambulance squatted like a lion in the driveway next door, always ready to go, and sometimes it did, roaring down the street. Today he is a MICA Flight Paramedic with decades of varied experience in 'a life of extremes' in an Australian ambulance service. He does shifts at base on-call, and teaches another generation of paramedics now. Loves his job.
 
A list of well-known events that includes Victoria's Black Saturday Fires and the 2005 Bali Bombing - he was trying to get married when that call came in - mark two dark extremes. Technical matters - trauma treatment decisions, and the limits of aviation, for example - are explained. And this book includes the little things like the time the supermarket aisle was alive with the sound of music from an ex-patient's kid's lips: 'Thanks for looking after Daddy.' Darren couldn't have put it better himself, and it made his heart sing.
 
This book tells what is like to be Darren Hodge on the end of a line, what it is like to be a paramedic. Open, honest reports, warts and all, this memoir is an unflinching account of how it feels, say, to pluck people from imminent death. And there are some laughs on the way...

"John Bryson has the skills of literary journalism, and abundant luck" a Penguin Books copywriter wrote for a back cover, and this was the case in 1986 in Belfast, where I was to launch a book, and stayed on to cover the sectarian war of that year, the worst for many years.

Description:

Those gorgeous boys, Elliot and Jack, are back in action in their second romantic adventure.
Their investigation business gets its first paying customer: a suburban housewife wants to know if her daughter is a witch. The answer isn't rocket science.
Elliot at least understands the fundamentals of rocket science. He knows slightly less about sex, but his long-time love (but only new lover) Jack is giving him a thorough grounding in that too.
Now, if only they can keep their mouths shut, not walk into danger again, save the day, and actually get paid, they'll be doing well.

Description:

Three Australian nine-year olds from different immigrant backgrounds form a Secret Society they call The Threefold Cord, to do good such as helping an old lady. When they rescue a tortured cat, they stumble on a crime gang that traffics costly cats and smuggles rare red diamonds, led by the enigmatic and quite monstrously fearsome Dr Vandersluys, the tall, pale stranger who always wears sunglasses and dresses in black.
Through their unity, courage and resourcefulness (and helped by an Aboriginal elder), the three succeed in saving themselves, overcoming evil and helping others.
The story is thrilling and funny and full of unexpected twists and turns and mysterious characters.

Description:

"These brilliant writers, through their works, never fail to exert their power in spadefuls, and soar to heights of grace and excellence in confronting the great existential dramas of life."
In a collection of passionate, sparkling essays, one of Australia's leading literary critics presents a fresh and exciting ode to Jewish fiction. Rescuing some brilliant texts from the dustbin of oblivion or from culture's short-memory, Abramovich, writing with affection and authority, offers gems of critical appreciation and in-depth discussion of masterpieces and iconic authors such as Nobel Prize Winner S.Y. Agnon, Israel's most celebrated living author Amos Oz, the mesmerising Paul Celan, the incomparable David Grossman, the extraordinary Susan Fromberg Schaeffer, the Israeli "Agatha Christie", and the early pioneers of Hebrew letters.
Sharing his lifetime joy of reading and engagement with the written word, and showcasing his scholarly erudition, Abramovich effortlessly muses on the nature of writing, and takes readers on an intellectual and philosophical journey through grand thematic landscapes such as memory, the Holocaust, identity, man's relationship with God, imagination, family, marriage, death and suffering. A celebration and a tribute to old favourites, this delightful volume of reflections and meditations is sure to ignite a fire in discerning readers' minds, and motivate them to go back to those classics with a renewed sense of excitement. Certain to become a valuable and entertaining guide for anyone who loves Israeli and Jewish fiction, this work will provide inspiration and reason aplenty to turn off the computer or TV and start reading again.

Description:

'What you are thinking about me is right,' says I, 'and it's wonderful and beautiful, and if you make it ugly for me I'll hate you for the rest of my life!' So flopping down and turning my poor brave face to the wall ... I'm still glad I said that.
 
Raised in a Sydney family of successful older brothers and sisters, young Barbara Whitley is determined to find her own direction. Her choices are instinctive but not always wise in the cramped world of the 1930s - a degree in Classics that fitted her for no profession, bad choices in men, taking a flat on her own when she'd grown up in the warmth of a loving family, a thoughtless marriage choice. The War comes, and Barbara's struggle for selfhood is further constrained, not least by the birth of her daughter and the failure of her marriage. And yet, luck finally takes a hand, in the form of a handsome lieutenant on leave in Sydney.
 
With an Introduction by Garry Kinnane

Description:

A World This Size.
You will have a restaurant like this in your city.
And, if you have spent time eating alone in restaurants, you will have felt the reverie of the imagination, which will cause you to scrutinise other diners for clues to their personalities and attribute to them lives you could find interesting. This is the story here.
A little Baroque music struts overhead. Here a man sits by himself. He is waiting on a martini. His fingers drum the cloth. Soon he falls to searching faces at other tables for something to hold his interest. His name is Freddy Unthank. Freddy would be hurt if we were to confuse his somnolent gaze with boredom. He has an eye for foible, and when he comes here (most Thursdays) he chooses his seat for the best view of the room.
Did the Lord Say Anything About a Serpent?
The scene is Paradise. In so far as time meant anything when the biblical world began, it's now around midweek, in the second month ever, and as for humankind, it is small enough that the singular pronouns, You and I, cover everyone there is.
For two voices, a sketch, at the very Beginning of the World.
I Keep Meeting My Grandfather.
Elspeth's grandfather has died. The reading of the will by the family solicitor shocks her parents who expect to be the beneficiaries. GranDoddie, as she has always called him, has left his substantial acreage to Elspeth.
And I hope this is not all Elspeth inherits from me.
Elspeth's parents are prim and conservative. GranDoddie attacks the pretentions of their luncheon guests.
He embarrassed us all. But I kept his silent score, following the points wherever he slammed them with the vacillating eyes of a tennis buff. There was seldom a re-match.
Kindly Death, a Right to Life Protest and a Shy Semite.
A VISITATION of Kindly Death is recorded by the Law List in a glass cabinet beside the sandstone doorway of Court Four in the City Courthouse, the sole item for the day's business, and for many days:
Trial: R v Ali Bashir. (1) Murder (2) Assist Suicide.
An elderly man will soon die of Motor Neuron Disease. He is determined to be present at his own wake. After the party he is found dead. His spouse, a younger Middle Eastern man is charged with his death.

Description:

She's sassy and opinionated - but maybe not the sharpest feeli on four legs.
When Megsy is checked in to the Lap of Luxury Cat Resort, she soon learns there's a lot she doesn't know, like: talent, pedigrees, surfing the Intercat, and where her kisskies went.
But, with the help of her fellow feeli inmates - Raffles, Big Dan, Zsa Zsa, Hamish the Handsome, and The Colonel - she gets a new perspective on life; and new name from cattery owner, Miss Steph.
A.K.A. Fudgepuddle is not a kids' book but is suitable for children - from 6 to 106.
It's a book for Cat People - or deuxjambs, as the feelis call us - of all ages. Even Dog People (or quiffo-lovers) will enjoy it.
With a grown-up sensibility - of ridiculous proportions - the adventures of Fudgepuddle and her feeli friends is a hilarious tour de fur!

Description:

Aboriginals believe they have lived in Australia since the Dreamtime, the beginning of all creation, and archaeological evidence shows the land has been inhabited for tens of thousands of years. Over this time, Aboriginal culture has grown a rich variety of mythologies in hundreds of different languages. Their unifying feature is a shared belief that the whole universe is alive, that we belong to the land and must care for it. This was the first book to collate and explain the many fascinating elements of Aboriginal culture: the song circles and stories, artefacts, landmarks, characters and customs.
