    Rebecca Stott's In the Days of Rain is the Costa Biography Award Winner 2017

    Rebecca Stott's In the Days of Rain is a fascinating yet shocking memoir about her experiences growing up in - and breaking away from - a fundamentalist Christian cult.

    Any readers who were left stunned and captivated by Bad Blood and Why Be Happy When You Can Be Normal will find themselves fully immersed in this incredible true story. Rebecca recalls how her father begged her to help him write a memoir while on his deathbed. He wanted to talk about his family's experiences in a fundamentalist Christian sect but every time he reached a certain point, the painful memories all became too much.

    The sect were a closed community who believed the world is ruled by Satan and lived by a number of strict rules - women had to wear headscarves and any non-sect books were banned. Although Rebecca was born into the sect, she needed to know more about their culture and asked intelligent yet dangerous questions while growing up. She soon discovered her father, an influential preacher, had been asking the same questions.

    Here Rebecca talks about her father's ongoing struggle between faith and doubt and how this affected their relationship and livelihood for a long time after breaking away...

    Guy Martin's books always provide an exhilarating insight into the daredevil's full-throttle life. But what would happen if he couldn't take part in road races? This exciting book will show you that even when he's in pain, he's in no mood to rest up...

    Guy describes how it felt when he crashed out of the lead of an Ulster Grand Prix superbike race held on the world's fastest race track. This accident left him with a broken spine and hand and he was unable to take part in road racing for a while but he didn't take it easy. He took it upon himself to break records on the world's biggest Wall of Death, cycled 2,745 miles across the length of the Unites States (while sleeping rough) and travelled to Latvia to investigate his family's roots.

    He also talks about the wacky races he took part in while recovering including wild Harley choppers on dirt and turbo-charged Transit vans through the Nevada desert. Of course, he's also got his day job at the truck yard and butty van.

    Hand-picked favourites
    Our brains are far stranger than we think. We take it for granted that we can remember, feel emotions, navigate and empathise with others but what if these abilities were dramatically enhanced or weakened overnight?

    Helen Thomson is an award-winning science writer who has spent years travelling the world to track down incredibly rare brain disorders. In this book, she tells the story of nine extraordinary people - including a man who thinks he's a tiger and a doctor who feels the pain of others just by looking at them.

    This book delves into the histories of these conditions and explains how they affect the people's lives in unexpected, brilliant and alarming ways. Helen also looks at the power of the human brain and how it affects our consciousness, our emotions and our creativity.

    From learning how to hallucinate and make yourself happier in only a split-second to avoiding getting lost, seeing more of reality and confirming you're alive, this is a fascinating philosophy book that encourages you to think the unthinkable. It breaks down the science of the human mind into manageable New Scientist-style chunks and combines the witty observational style of Jon Ronson with the humanity and intelligence of Oliver Sacks.
