Meet Horace Winter and fall in love with life again ...Horace Winter doesn't, strictly speaking, have friends. Ever since the long-ago day when the Very Bad Thing happened, he prefers to spend his time in the company of moths and butterflies, who are far less likely to disappoint him than humans. But then, on the day Horace retires from his job as assistant bank manager, he takes a turn and, faced with devastating news, he is suddenly forced to confront his life. Then Horace meets Amanda. And Max. And ex-Corporal Migsie Spring. He discovers a letter his father never posted, and goes on a mission to find its addressee. He gets a man jailed (sort of) and rescues his son (sort of). He learns to fly a model airplane and takes his own first flight abroad, to England, and then takes his Morris Minor on a ferry to visit the beaches of Normandy. And all to answer one central question: is Horace Winter a moth? Or is he a butterfly?

Blood Miracles
The second novel from the author of the Baileys Prize-winning The Glorious Heresies

Like all twenty-year-olds, Ryan Cusack is trying to get his head around who he is.
This is not a good time for his boss to exploit his dual heritage by opening a new black market route from Italy to Ireland. It is certainly not a good time for his adored girlfriend to decide he's irreparably corrupted. And he really wishes he hadn't accidentally caught the eye of an ornery grandmother who fancies herself his saviour.

Centaur
For 23 years, Declan has been unable to tell his story, to bring to words existence on the frontier between life and death, to describe the incredible bond between man and horse.
