Only a pataphysician nurtured lovingly on surrealist excess could have come up with The Blue Flowers, Queneau's 1964 novel. At his death in 1976, Raymond Queneau was one of France's most eminent men of letters––novelist, poet, essayist, editor, scientist, mathematician, and, more to the point, pataphysician. And only a pataphysician nurtured lovingly on surrealist excess could have come up with The Blue Flowers, Queneau's 1964 novel, now reissued as a New Directions Paperbook. To a pataphysician all things are equal, there is no improvement or progress in the human condition, and a "message" is an invention of the benighted reader, certainly not the author or his perplexing creations––the sweet, fennel-drinking Cidrolin and the rampaging Duke d'Auge. History is mostly what the duke rampages through––700 years of it at 175-year clips. He refuses to crusade, clobbers his king with the "in" toy of 1439––the cannon––dabbles in alchemy, and decides that those musty caves down at Altamira need a bit of sprucing up. Meanwhile, Cidrolin in the 1960s lolls on his barge moored along the Seine, sips essence of fennel, and ineffectually tries to catch the graffitist who nightly defiles his fence. But mostly he naps. Is it just a coincidence that the duke appears only when Cidrolin is dozing? And vice versa? In the tradition of Villon and Céline, Queneau attempted to bring the language of the French streets into common literary usage, and his mad word-plays, bad puns, bawdy jokes, and anachronistic wackiness have been kept amazingly and glitteringly intact by the incomparable translator Barbara Wright.

Her destiny wasn’t to be a man’s arm candy! Zarah Andromeda Busain had known what her role as a princess of Tasain would be since she could first walk and talk. That didn’t mean she agreed with it. From the beginning, she fought against those expectations, challenging them and asking why. So when it came down to the point of choosing a husband from a group of ten, she chose none. She followed a friend to a small town outside of London, infuriating her older brother but finding peace and satisfaction in helping others. That peace was shattered the day Derrick Huntington walked into her world. He was big and huge and disgustingly handsome with a confidence that irritated her beyond words. And when he touched her, she forgot to breathe, when he kissed her, she forgot to remember that he wasn’t the man she could marry. Derrick couldn’t believe that the perfect woman for him had been discovered right in his own little village. She was beautiful, smart and didn’t want him in any way. But when he touched her, she shivered. When he kissed her, she melted in his arms, kissing him back with a passion that drove him wild. The woman had a secret though. And when that secret had her disappear, Derrick moved heaven and earth to find the woman he loved. Even when it meant facing down a powerful sheik and older brother, he was going to find his woman and bring her back.

Victor Peters is back with another spell bound story set in the exotic backgrounds of China and the Middle East. Once again Peters plays in the playground of the ultra rich and powerful people of various continents where people of all races, creed and social level fight for ultimate power. This is a story of an International global power game and revenge, of economic maneuvers in order to gain that little edge over the competition and of political bickering and infighting that more often than not leads to cataclysmic events. The author has a unique gift of capturing the twists and ironies of fate. His insights into the ambitions and passions of his characters are brilliant. The girls are gorgeous and ready to protect Peters, some for love and others for selfish motives.

In the aftermath of the Revolutionary War, America remained very volatile. One outgrowth of this was Shays' Rebellion, an armed uprising in Massachusetts that pitted a group of dissatisfied residents against the nascent state authorities. It may seem like an unlikely backdrop for budding romance, but Edward Bellamy pulls it off with aplomb, balancing rich historical detail with tender emotions.

A masterly work of military history, Dunkirk: Retreat to Victory is also a tribute to the soldiers whose courage and self belief sustained them through their darkest hours. The evacuation of British forces from Dunkirk is one of the pivotal moments in the Second World War – an astonishing endeavour that snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. Sent to help the Belgians and French hold back the German army, the small British Expeditionary Force was ill-equipped and under-trained. When Hitler attacked on 10 May 1940 and the French and Belgian armies collapsed in the face of Germany's swift and brutal advance, the British soldiers found themselves in mortal danger. In Dunkirk: Retreat to Victory, Major General Julian Thompson recreates the action as the British fought hard for three desperate weeks, conducting a successful fighting withdrawal in the face of a formidable foe. He describes the individual acts of bravery and sacrifice and analyses the decisions of the commanders who made the choice to evacuate. He also takes us to Dunkirk harbour and onto the beaches, where the British army was trapped and under attack, while the Royal Navy and the 'little ships' raced against time to rescue them.

Lions legend Bobby Windsor has enjoyed triumphs beyond the dreams of most international players but has also suffered personal tragedy. His rugby career as the best hooker in the British Isles during the second golden era of Welsh rugby in the 1970s is a turbulent tale of blood and thunder on the pitch. There are riotous incidents off the pitch, including unscheduled fights with professional boxers, revelations about illegal payments during the so-called amateur era and what Windsor did to upset the Establishment and become blackballed by one of the most famous clubs in the world. Windsor's irrepressible sense of humour comes shining through on every page, except when he gives chapter and verse on the personal crisis that drove him to plan suicide. The Iron Duke is the no-holds-barred, warts-and-all story of a working-class Welsh folk hero who rose from humble beginnings to become a permanent member of the greatest Lions team in the history of rugby union.
