The Secret Life of a Slummy Mummy (by Fiona Neill)

Arrow (31 Jan, 2008)

For Lucy Sweeney, motherhood isn't all astanga yoga and Cath Kidston prints. It's been years since the dirty laundry pile was less than a metre high, months since Lucy remembered to have sex with her husband, and a week since she last did the school run wearing pyjamas. Motherhood, it seems, has more pitfalls than she might have expected. Caught between perfectionist Yummy Mummy No 1 and hypercompetit ...

Arrow (01 May, 2008)

These marvellous stories introduce us to Jeeves, whose first ever duty is to cure Bertie's raging hangover ("If you would drink this, Sir... it is a little preparation of my own invention. It is the Worcester Sauce that gives it its colour. The raw egg makes it nutritious. The red pepper gives it its bite. Gentlemen have told me they have found it extremely invigorating after a late evening"). And from that ...

High Society (by Ben Elton)

Black Swan (01 Jul, 2003)

T The war on drugs has been lost but for want of the courage to face the fact that the whole world is rapidly becoming one vast criminal network.

HIGH SOCIETY is a story or rather a collection of interconnected stories that takes the reader on a hi ...

Meltdown (by Ben Elton)

Black Swan (08 Jul, 2010)

For amiable City trader Jimmy Corby money was the new Rock n' Roll. His whole life was a party, adrenalin charged and cocaine fuelled.

It plays by different rules. Certainly, it refuses to succumb to the quaint notion that universes are ruled by ...

Pyramids: (Discworld Novel 7) (Discworld Novels) (by Terry Pratchett)

Corgi (01 Sep, 2004)

Look after the dead', said the priests, 'and the dead will look after you.' Wise words in all probability, but a tall order when you have just become the pharaoh of a small and penniless country whose largesse - and indeed treasury - is unlikely to stretch to the building of a monumental pyramid to honour your dead father. And particularly when your only visible means of support is a recently acquired quali ...
