Rennie Ellis Decadent, Rennie Ellis
Hardie Grant $69.95

Decadent: 1980-2000 is a photography book showcasing Rennie Ellis' (1940-2003) contribution to photography and social history. Ellis' boundary-pushing, racy and sometimes voyeuristic works capture the rise of the hedonism that we now associate with the 1980s.

Boyhood Island, Karl Ove Knausguard:
Harvill/Secker $32.99

In the third book of the My Struggle cycle - a family of four - mother, father and two boys - move to Srland, to a new house on a new estate. It is the early 1970s, the children are small, the parents young and the future open. But at some point that future happens to them; at some point the future closes.

Murder in Mississippi, John Safran

Wednesday 30th April 8.00pm

John Safran will be joining us to talk about his book.

When filming his TV series Race Relations, John Safran spent an uneasy couple of days with one of Mississippi's most notorious white supremacists. A year later, he heard that the man had been murdered - and what was more, the killer was black. At first the murder seemed a twist on the old Deep South race crimes. But then more news rolled in. Maybe it was a dispute over money, or most intriguingly, over sex. Could the infamous racist actually have been secretly gay, with a thing for black men? Did Safran have the last footage of him alive? Could this be the story of a lifetime? Seizing his Truman Capote moment, he jumped on a plane to cover the trial.
