Market Farm is a Swiftian satire on the untrammelled free market thinking that helped usher in the current financial crisis. In its concept, it pays homage to George Orwell s Animal Farm and engages the reader in an amusing way with the causes and likely outcomes of the crisis we are all facing. The story follows the fortunes of three characters: Erroll, a bull who is an eternal optimist; Merlin, a donkey who is a down- to-earth pessimist; and Lily, a chicken who is largely timid and confused. While focusing on the damage wrought by the financial crisis, Market Farm examines its deeper causes and takes passing swipes at other problems of modern life. These include the cult of fine food, the rise of the welfare state, pollution, obesity, social disorder, the domination of the political process by the media, and even the rise of the internet and phenomena such as Twitter."

The Mussolini Canal is one of the great achievements of contemporary Italian fiction. It spans 100 years of Italian history as seen through the lives of the Peruzzi family, who are among the 30,000 peasants from Northern Italy sent down to farm the newly-drained Pontine Marshes outside Rome in the 1930s. Mussolini is revered by the Peruzzi family, who must reconcile their admiration for Il Duce with the failings of Fascism which slowly envelop them. Contemporary events permeate the book and the hardship and misery of earlier periods are seen against the background of modern prosperity. It won the Strega prize in 2010 in Italy and has sold over 400,000 copies in Italy

Another haunting novel of eco-speculation from Johanna Sinisalo, the award-winning author of Troll and a powerhouse of the Finnish science fiction and fantasy scene It is claimed Albert Einstein said that if bees disappear from the earth, mankind has four years left. When bee-vanishings of unprecedented scale hit the United States, Orvo, a Finnish beekeeper, knows all too well where it will lead. And when he sees the queen dead in his hives one day, it's clear the epidemic has spread to Europe, and the world is coming to an end. Orvo's special knowledge of bees just may enable him to glimpse a solution to catastrophe: he takes a desperate step onto a path where only he and the bees know the way but it propels him into conflict with his estranged, but much-loved son, a committed animal activist. A magical plunge into the myth of death and immortality, this is a tale of human blindness in the face of devastation—and the inevitable.
