About this deal

Out of the Blue is the first anthology of Icelandic short fiction published in English translation and features work by twenty of Iceland’s most popular and celebrated living authors. Alongside Robert Tregoning’s empathetic, stirring, rhyming story, we’ve Stef Murphy’s subtle, emotionally literate, broad sweep illustrations. Truss announced her resignation a day later, making her the shortest-serving prime minister in British history. Said human happens to be Sean, the dreamy, chubby, lifeguard/school swimmer/wanna-be film director who got dumped by his boyfriend.

Here, an extraordinary pair of earrings showcase two mesmerising unenhanced purple sapphires of over 4 total carats, each nestled within a layout of diamond and gold coral motifs. Jason June tells the story of the merfolk Crest who has to spend one month on land (under the name Ross) and help a human, as part of the Journey, an ancient mer tradition. What emerges is a book of two parts, the second of which focuses heavily on her seven weeks in prime ministerial office and is essentially a Sunday newspaper long read on acid.but I will say that in discussing the book with friends, one of them had a very different take on it! This is a heart-warming, inspiring celebration of the importance of difference, of the life-enhancing power of making everyone welcome, as well as the vital importance of being who you really are. In this necklace, exceedingly rare unenhanced padparadscha sapphires of over 24 total carats and diamonds of over 42 total carats, together with Umba sapphires, mother-of-pearl and carnelians, give life to the theme. Robbie Griffiths of the Evening Standard speculated on 5 October that, with Out of the Blue set to be sent to the printers "in the next few days", Truss's "turbulent start to the job" put Cole and Heale in a difficult position.

This was such a fun twist on a rom-com and seeing such casual non-binary and plus sized rep was a joy. The first pictured a car on its side trapped between a wall and a lamppost; the second was a horse stuck halfway through a three-bar fence; the third a car balanced precariously between two walls. Despite being written off and mocked by even her closest colleagues, Liz Truss slowly but determinedly achieved her goal of taking over 10 Downing Street - only to instantly plunge her administration into chaos and announce her resignation after a record-breaking 44 days. The book's blurb described it as about "the rise of the geeky teenage Lib Dem who transformed into the queen of the Brexiteers".It’s an absolutely unique insight into Iceland's culture, mentality, and spirit—a country where the short story is as valued as the Sagas. This assured novel stands out for the quality of its writing and imaginative vision, among the many other books about teenagers dealing with grief. It’s hard to be like “it makes me feel weird and uncomfortable so it’s bad” because this is geared for young adults and I’m not the target audience. There are times when they are oblivious to themselves, which is hard to believe with how much self-awareness they also possess. He feels he can’t tell anyone, not even his dad, and hides his collection of yellow things in the cupboard.
