HarperCollins is proud to present its incredible range of best-loved, essential classics.
Jane Austen is remembered for her six masterpieces of the Regency era: from the heroines of Elizabeth Bennett and Emma Woodhouse, to the villains of Mrs. Norris and John Willoughby. But these characters were not born overnight. They sprung from Austen’s experiences as a young girl, and many early iterations can be found in the earliest of her writing: her Juvenilia.
Austen was only a teenager when she wrote her Juvenilia. In the 'History of England', Austen champions (and laments) the great kings of England as 'a partial, prejudiced, and ignorant Historian'; in ‘Lady Susan’, she writes a titular anti-heroine that schemes and cheats her way through high society; and in ‘Love and Freindship’, Austen paints a picture of a woman looking back on her extremely unfortunate life.
Writing on the cusp of literary greatness, Love and Freindship offers a fascinating — and often surprising — insight into a young Jane Austen.

“An emotional landslide of a novel that kept me gripped from first page to last.” Clare Lydon, best-selling author of Before You Say I Do
’A compelling story of second chances and being true to yourself.’—Harper Bliss, bestselling author of  Seasons of Love
{"strong"=>["You always come back to your first love…"]}
Nora hasn’t looked back. Not since she left home, and her broken heart, far behind her. But now tragedy calls her back, where she must finally come face to face with ex-boyfriend Charlie, and best friend Sophie. Only now will she be able to confront her past—and reconcile her future.
Sophie seems to have everything. Married to Charlie, with a wonderful daughter and a successful career. Yet underneath that perfection lies an explosive secret. A secret that ripped through their town and destroyed her friendship with Nora. So when Sophie finds out that Nora has returned, she hopes Nora’s stay is short. The life she has built depends on it.
But first love doesn’t fade easily. Memories come to light, passion ignites and old feelings resurface. As the forces that once tore them apart begin to re-emerge, both Nora and Sophie must accept that true love is something worth fighting for.
{"strong"=>["Readers love The Secret of You and Me"]}
‘A beautifully and sensitively written  love story’
‘This story hit chords with me and I thank Melissa for that. Coming out as a teenager, being forced out or coming out as an adult — as Nora said, everyone has a different story but we aren't alone. I think that is such an important message…. [I] urge you to pick this book up and devour it like I did.’
‘I love how flawed and relatable all of the characters are, Melissa Lenhardt has written a beautiful LGBT story which I enjoyed immensely’
‘A sweet story, full of emotions. I loved the characters, rooted for them, and the plot kept me hooked. I strongly recommend it.’
‘I have to admit that this was not the usual love story scenario that I read, but it had me enthralled to the very end… I hope that this book hits across the generations, making them think just that little bit more. I certainly will be telling people to read it, and many are in book groups of some kind.’

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author, an extraordinary story of redemption in the darkest of places.
Jarvis Jay Masters’s early life was a horror story whose outline we know too well. Born in Long Beach, California, his house was filled with crack, alcohol, physical abuse, and men who paid his mother for sex. He and his siblings were split up and sent to foster care when he was five, and he progressed quickly to juvenile detention, car theft, armed robbery, and ultimately San Quentin. While in prison, he was set up for the murder of a guard — a conviction which landed him on death row, where he’s been since 1990.
At the time of his murder trial, he was held in solitary confinement, torn by rage and anxiety, felled by headaches, seizures, and panic attacks. A criminal investigator repeatedly offered to teach him breathing exercises which he repeatedly refused, until desperation moved him.
With uncanny clarity, David Sheff describes Masters’s gradual but profound transformation from a man dedicated to hurting others to one who has prevented violence on the prison yard, counselled high school kids by mail, and helped prisoners -and even guards — find meaning in their lives.
Along the way, Masters becomes drawn to the Buddhist principles — compassion, sacrifice, and living in the moment -and gains the admiration of Buddhists worldwide. And while he is still in San Quentin and still on death row, he shows us all how to ease our everyday suffering, relish the light that surrounds us, and endure the tragedies that befall us all.

The fabulous new book from bestselling author Susan Mallery about friendship, love… and and a list that will change your life!
{"strong"=>["One Summer can change your life…"]}
As a single mum, Ellen Fox missed out on a lot, but she wouldn’t change a thing. Then she overhears her son saying he can’t leave home to go to college because she needs him too much. If she wants him to live his best life, she has to convince him she’s living hers.
To help, Ellen’s best friend Unity creates a list of challenges to push Ellen out of her comfort zone. Unity will complete the list, too. Only to support her friend, not because she needs to change. She’s a perfectly fine thirty four year old widow, who socialises at an old people’s home!
For both women, The Friendship List begins as a way to make others believe they’re doing just fine. But somewhere between ‘wear a bikini in public’ and ‘have sex with a gorgeous guy’, Ellen and Unity discover that life is meant to be lived with joy and abandon, and filled with humour, heartache and perhaps the odd regrettable tattoo!

{"strong"=>["‘This pioneering and judicious history of foreign intervention in elections should be read by everyone who wants to defend democracy now.’ Timothy Snyder, author of On Tyranny“]}
{"strong"=>["The definitive account of covert operations to influence elections from the Cold War to 2016 — and why the threat is greater than ever in 2020."]}
Russia's interference in 2016 marked only the latest chapter of a hidden and revelatory history. In Rigged, David Shimer tells the sweeping story of covert electoral interference past and present. He exposes decades of secret operations — by the CIA, the KGB, and Vladimir Putin's Russia — to shape electoral outcomes, melding deep historical research with groundbreaking interviews with more than 130 key players, from former CIA directors to a KGB general.
What Americans should make of Russia's attack in 2016 is still hotly debated, even after the release of the Mueller Report and years of media coverage. Shimer shows that Putin's operation was, in fact, a continuation of an ongoing struggle, using familiar weapons radically enhanced by new technology. Casting aside partisanship and sensationalism, Rigged reveals new details about what Russia achieved in 2016, how the United States responded, and why Putin has also been interfering in elections across the globe in recent years.
Understanding 2016 as one battle in a much longer war is essential to understanding the critical threat currently posed to America's electoral sovereignty and how to defend against it. Illuminating how the lessons of the past can be used to protect our democracy in the future, Rigged is an essential book for readers of every political persuasion.

This is a story of a London you won’t find in any guidebooks.
This is a story about what it’s like to exist in the moment, about boys too eager to become men, growing up in the hidden war zones of big cities — and the girls trying to make it their own way.
This is a story of reputations made and lost, of violence and vengeance — and never counting the cost.
This is a story of concrete towers and blank eyed windows, of endless nights in police stations and prison cells, of brotherhood and betrayal.
This is about the boredom, the rush, the despair, the fear and the hope.
This is about what’s left behind.
