Murdered Midas: A Millionaire, His Gold Mine, and a Strange Death on an Island Paradise, and Akin: A Novel
Charlotte Gray is one of Canada’s best-known writers and the author of ten acclaimed books of literary non-fiction. Her latest book, Murdered Midas: A Millionaire, His Gold Mine, and a Strange Death on an Island Paradise, tells the story of the infamous Sir Harry Oakes, gold mining tycoon, philanthropist and "richest man in the Empire," as only Charlotte Gray can tell it.
In her first contemporary novel since Room, which became an Academy Award nominee for Best Picture, bestselling author Emma Donoghue returns with her next masterpiece, a brilliant tale of love, loss and family. With all the tenderness and psychological intensity that made Room a huge bestseller, Akin is a funny, heart-wrenching tale of an old man and a boy who unpick their painful story and together start to write a new one.
