Paperback:In the dream house:2020 Paperback
Author: Machado, Carmen Maria
Year: 2020
Language: English
Interest category: Biography
Media class: Paperback
Publisher: Serpent's Tail
Resource type: Physical
Note: 'In the Dream House' is Carmen Maria Machado's engrossing and wildly innovative account of a relationship gone bad. Tracing the full arc of a harrowing experience with a charismatic but volatile woman, this is a bold dissection of the mechanisms and cultural representations of psychological abuse. Each chapter views the relationship through a different narrative lens, as Machado holds events up to the light and examines them from distinct angles. She casts a critical eye over legal proceedings, fairy tales, Star Trek and Disney villains, as well as iconic works of film and fiction, infusing all with her characteristic wit, playfulness and openness to enquiry. The result is a powerful book that explodes our ideas about what a memoir can do and be. General adult

Paperback:Shamed, the honour killing that shocked Britain - by the sister who fought for justice:2013 Paperback
Author: Athwal, Sarbjit Kaur
Year: 2013
Language: English
Interest category: Crime & police work
Media class: Paperback
Publisher: Virgin Books
Resource type: Physical
Note: In 1997, Sarbjit Athwal was called by her husband to attend a family meeting. It looked like just another family gathering. An attractive house in west London, a large dining room, two brothers, two sisters, one wife. But the subject they were discussing was anything but ordinary. At the head of the group sat the elderly mother. She stared proudly around the table, smiling at her children, then raised her hand for silence. 'It's decided then', the old lady announced. 'We have to get rid of her'. 'Her' was Surjit Athwal, Sarbjit's sister-in-law. Within three months of that meeting, Surjit was dead: lured from London to India, drugged, strangled, and her body dumped in the Ravi River, never to be seen again. Only Sarbjit seemed horrified by her fate. Surrounded by murderers, she knew she had to fight for justice - but how? And at what risk? This is her shocking story. General adult

Author: Smith, Jenny
Year: 2014

Interest category: Health & welfare
Media class: Paperback
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Resource type: Physical
Note: Until 1971, female victims of domestic violence were expected to 'kiss and make up' with their husbands, hide their black eyes and bruises, and bear the shame that somehow their partners' brutality was their fault. Chiswick Women's Aid was Europe's first ever refuge for what were then called 'battered women', and Jenny Smith was one of the first females who bravely made their way to this much-needed safe house. Desperate, and in fear for her life and the welfare of her two small children, Jenny had fled her dangerously schizophrenic partner, carrying only a few possessions. This book tells her story.

Interest category: Crime & police work
Media class: Hardback
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Weidenfeld & Nicolson
Resource type: Physical
Note: As a society, we are captivated by policing; we watch police procedurals and fly-on-the-wall documentaries and absorb the headlines on the rolling news. Yet how much do we really know about the world that policing inhabits and reveals? In his eye-opening new book, John Sutherland invites us to step behind the cordon tape and bear witness to the things that he has seen in his 25 years of service. Tackling ten of the biggest challenges facing society today - from alcohol abuse, drug addiction and domestic violence to knife crime, terrorism and sexual offences - we are introduced to people who have been pushed to the limits. In doing so, we gain a clearer sense of what needs to be done in order to make the cities we live in better places for us all to live. Deeply revealing, courageous and moving, this is a book that will change what you see when you walk down the street. General adult
