Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy
THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER What do you do when a girlfriend's 60th birthday party is the same day as your boyfriend's 30th? Is it wrong to lie about your age when online dating? Is it morally wrong to have a blow-dry when one of your children has head lice? Does the Dalai Lama actually tweet or is it his assistant? Is technology now the fifth element? Or is that wood? Is sleeping with someone after 2 dates and 6 weeks of texting the same as getting married after 2 meetings and 6 months of letter writing in Jane Austen's day? Pondering these, and other modern dilemmas, Bridget Jones stumbles through the challenges of single-motherhood, tweeting, texting and redisovering her sexuality in what SOME people rudely and outdatedly call 'middle age'. The long-awaited return of a much-loved character, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy is timely, tender, touching, witty, wise and bloody hilarious.

Animal Farm
'All animals are equal - but some are more equal than others' When the downtrodden animals of Manor Farm overthrow their master Mr Jones and take over the farm themselves, they imagine it is the beginning of a life of freedom and equality. But gradually a cunning, ruthless elite among them, masterminded by the pigs Napoleon and Snowball, starts to take control. Soon the other animals discover that they are not all as equal as they thought, and find themselves hopelessly ensnared as one form of tyranny is replaced with another. 'It is the history of a revolution that went wrong - and of the excellent excuses that were forthcoming at every step for the perversion of the original doctrine,' wrote Orwell for the first edition of Animal Farm in 1945. Orwell wrote the novel at the end of 1943, but it almost remained unpublished; its savage attack on Stalin, at that time Britain's ally, led to the book being refused by publisher after publisher. Orwell's simple, tragic fable has since become a world-famous classic. This Penguin Modern classics edition includes an introduction by Malcolm Bradbury.

A sharp and outrageous satire about the deadly dark side of discrimination Alex has a problem. Categorized as one of the disabled, dole-scrounging underclass, she is finding it hard to make ends meet. When in her part-time placement at the local newspaper she stumbles onto a troubling link between the disappearance of several homeless people, the government's new Care and Protect Act, and the Grassybanks Residential Home for the disabled, elderly and vulnerable, she knows she has to investigate further... but at what cost to herself and her guide dog Chris?

Cadillac Jack: A Novel
Larry McMurtry's big hearted fiction has been lauded for taking us places we hadn't known existed (Joyce Carol Oates, New York Review of Books). Cadillac Jack does exactly that, inviting readers into the passenger seat of a pearl-colored Caddy with peach velour-covered seats, joining a rodeo-bulldogger-turned-antique- scout at the wheel. Superbly comic (Newsday), this rollicking tale echoes the cultural climate of America today, with the cagey yet charming Jack grappling with the capitol's pretentious elite. As he cruises through relationships with distinctively appealing women-including socialite boutique owner Cindy and discreet mother-of-two Jean-Jack realizes home for him will always be simply barreling down freeways in his Cadillac, wandering the country in search of another obscure treasure. Bolstered with its cast of unforgettable characters, Cadillac Jack entices with the prospect of undiscovered riches around that next bend in the road.

H. M. Pulham, Esquire: A Novel
A Harvard reunion prompts a Boston Brahmin's search for meaning in this comedy of manners by the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Point of No Return. In preparation for the twenty-fifth reunion of his class at Harvard, Harry Pulham is asked to collect and edit the personal histories of his fellow alumni. A glance at the previous year's class book tells him just how tedious the assignment will be: I have been very busy all this time practising corporation law and trying to raise a family, a typical entry reads. I still like to go to the football games and cheer for Harvard. Harry's autobiography is almost indistinguishable from those of his classmates. From his career at a Boston investment firm to his marriage to childhood friend Kay Motford, he has always made the safe, familiar choice-with one exception. For a brief interlude after World War I, Harry joined an advertising agency in Manhattan and fell in love with a beautiful, independent woman unlike anyone he had ever met. A wholly unexpected future opened up for him in those few months, but when family obligations called him back to New England, the relationship came to a sudden end. Now, twenty years later, Harry believes that his story could not have turned out any other way. A clever satire that achieves heartbreaking poignancy, H. M. Pulham, Esquire is a masterpiece from the author declared by the New York Times to be our foremost fictional chronicler of the well-born.

First Lady Escapes, The: FLOTUS Flees the White House
President Rex Funck is a loutish, lying old bully whose affairs have deeply hurt his stunning wife Natalia, a former model from Slovakia. Now he wants to get her pregnant so voters will see him as a macho stud and re-elect him in a landslide. Natalia despises Funck too much to go through with it. With the help of Angel, her gay Mexican hairdresser and BFF, she secretly flees the White House. To take her place they leave Moon, a ballsy trans woman who impersonates FLOTUS at a Miami drag-queen show. Natalia's suspenseful escape becomes a personal journey of self-awareness with unexpected twists and outrageous characters. Meanwhile, when the truth comes out about Moon at the White House, all hell breaks loose. In The First Lady Escapes: FLOTUS Flees the White House, Natalia proves herself a true American hero by saving her beloved adopted country from getting Funcked. 'A rippingly funny and surreal lampoon, the comic relief we so desperately need from the twisted absurdity of our current political horrors. It will leave you gasping with laughter and Trumpetized all at the same time.' 'I can't stop laughing! I'm buying a hundred copies to pass out at the next Women's March!'

Bless Me, Father
The inspiration for the hit London Weekend Television series of the same name, this is one confessional you'll want to make a point of visiting Young Neil Boyd has just finished divinity school and has been newly ordained as a priest. His first post? St. Jude's parish, a corner of London with a raucous congregation full of Irish immigrants. The flock is an odd pairing with the gentle Father Boyd, but he just might be both mad enough and tender enough to get through to them. Later adapted into a beloved British sitcom, Bless Me, Father is a humorous and sweet-natured look at Catholicism in the 1950s. Joining Boyd is the cantankerous, scheming, and brilliant Father Duddleswell, a man who is willing to do anything to make sure the Lord's will be done, and Mrs. Pring, the sharp-tongued housekeeper who both coddles and cajoles her priestly family of two. If the church needs money, Duddleswell will place a bet to get it. If a Catholic wants to marry a Protestant . . . well, maybe he won't go that far. Father Neil's adventures with his parishioners are sure to delight readers of all creeds.

Sibella & Sibella: A Novel
Enlisted by megalomaniac publisher Myron Beam, Sibella--junior editor extraordinaire--recounts the trials and tribulations of the San Francisco-based literary darling Hard Rain Publishing all the way from its improbable rise through its seemingly inevitable freefall. The whip smart, wise-cracking, and surprisingly well-read Sibella navigates the mounting eccentricities of the house's award-winning authors, slices up her oh-so-pretentious colleagues with her razor-sharp wit, and even manages to fish her publisher out of the pub long enough to keep the whole ship afloat, all the while battling her ex-boyfriend's meteoric success and the feintless infinity of the blank page. But when her boss acquires the artless and arduous 900-page debut The Adventures of Calypso O'Kelly, their star author Figgy Fontana--possibly, maybe, kinda sorta--dies, and a team of con artists take aim at Myron Beam, it's up to Sibella, her endlessly outmatched editor in chief, and a former female pornstar--no, really--to return Hard Rain and its hard-boozing, hapless publisher to their former glory. Part tell all, part mystery, and part coming-of-age novel, Sibella & Sibella is a biting look at the world of publishing from a reluctant witness who pulls no punches with anyone. Least of all herself.

Rich Upon Thames
Although it's really nice to meet you both, Mother and Father have asked us not to spend too much time socialising with you. They said they've spent a lot of money on our private education and do not want to risk having our consonants being corrupted nor having our vowels becoming contaminated. I hope you'll understand . . . Rich Upon Thames, Jules Ede's second Adult Humour book, takes us on a satirical journey, as we view a spectrum of residents ranging from `comfortably off' to `extremely wealthy', who have migrated to the respectable and genteel Victorian hamlets and boroughs along the banks of South West London's River Thames. It draws on situations the author has observed, from conversations overheard, and situations experienced whilst residing with his wife and children in one of South West London's more desirable and cosmopolitan locations. Although following in a similar vein as the popular Adult Ladybird books, this book is unique in its choice of subject. Although we may view this prosperous species with a degree of amusement, and perhaps even a minority, with condescension, the author would not be surprised if we might subconsciously be harbouring a few molecules of envy. The 25 original illustrations, by Yorkshire artist, Jane Peryer, accurately reflect these honed narratives and portray the incisive humour evident in each. You may even recognise certain individuals who have their equivalents residing in your own local neighbourhoods...

The President
The President tells the story of a ruthless dictator and his schemes to dispose of a political adversary in an unnamed country usually identified as Guatemala. Drawing on his experience as a journalist writing under repressive conditions, Miguel Angel Asturias provides a blazing indictment of totalitarian government and its damaging psychological effects on society - from the harvest of terror to cowardice, to sycophancy, to treachery and intrigue, and the total sacrifice of human values to lust for power. Written in a language of freedom and originality, full of extraordinary symbolism, biting satire, poetry and dream sequences, with an imagination that is both lyrical and ferocious, The President is a surrealist masterpiece and one of the most influential books of the twentieth century.
