Wreck This Journal: To Create is to Destroy, Now With Even More Ways to Wreck!
A new edition of Keri Smith's bestseller, with updated material Think of Wreck This Journal as the anarchist's Artist's Way -- the book for those who've always wanted to draw outside the lines but were afraid to do it. For anyone who's ever wished to, but had trouble starting, keeping, or finishing a journal or sketchbook comes Wreck This Journal, an illustrated book featuring a subversive collection of suggestions, asking readers to muster up their best mistake - and mess-making abilities to fill the pages of the book (and destroy them). Through a series of creatively and quirkily illustrated prompts, acclaimed artist Keri Smith encourages journalers to engage in destructive acts - poking holes through pages, adding photos and defacing them, painting with coffee, colouring outside the lines, and more - in order to experience the true creative process. With Keri Smith's unique sensibility, readers are introduced to a new way of art and journal making, discovering novel ways to escape the fear of the blank page and fully engage in the creative process.

Humble Pi: A Comedy of Maths Errors

Most of the time, the maths in our everyday lives works quietly behind the scenes. Until someone forgets to carry a '1' and a bridge collapses, a plane drops out of the sky or a building rocks when its resonant frequency matches a gym class leaping to Snap's 1990 hit I've Got The Power. This book is all about what happens when maths goes wrong in the real world. Exploring and explaining a litany of near-misses and mishaps involving the internet, big data, elections, street signs, lotteries and the Roman empire, Matt Parker shows us the bizarre ways maths trips us all up, and what this reveals about its essential place in our world. Mathematics doesn't have good 'people skills', but we would all be better off, he argues, if we saw it as a practical ally. By making maths our friend, we can use it to our advantage and learn from its pitfalls.

Everything I Know About Love
THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER WITH A NEW CHAPTER ON TURNING THIRTY *Winner of Autobiography of the Year at the National Book Awards 2018* *Shortlisted for the Waterstones Book of the Year 2018* Award-winning journalist Dolly Alderton survived her twenties (just about) and in Everything I Know About Love, she gives an unflinching account of the bad dates and squalid flat-shares, the heartaches and humiliations, and most importantly, the unbreakable female friendships that helped her to hold it all together. Glittering with wit, heart and humour, this is a book to press into the hands of every woman who has ever been there or is about to find themselves taking that first step towards the rest of their lives. *************** 'Alderton is Nora Ephron for the millennial generation' Elizabeth Day 'Steeped in furiously funny accounts of one-night stands, ill-advised late-night taxi journeys up the M1, grubby flat-shares and the beauty of female friendships, as Alderton joyfully booze-cruises her way through her twenties' Metro 'Deeply funny, sometimes shocking, and admirably open-hearted and optimistic' Daily Telegraph 'The book we will thrust into our friends' hands . . . that will help heal a broken heart. Alderton's wise words can resonate with women of all ages. She feels like a best friend and your older sister all rolled into one and her pages wrap around you like a warm hug' Evening Standard 'A sensitive, astute and funny account of growing up millennial' Observer 'I loved its truth, self awareness, humour and most of all, its heart-spilling generosity' Sophie Dahl 'Alderton proves a razor-sharp observer of the shifting dynamics of long term female friendship' Mail on Sunday 'It's so full of life and laughs - I gobbled up this book. Alderton has built something beautiful and true out of many fragments of daftness' Amy Liptrot

stayed in Italy, he would also provide child support until the child turned 18. She agreed, but wondered how he would know when the baby was born. To keep it discrete, he told her to mail him a postcard, and write Spaghetti on the back. He would then arrange for child support. One day, about 9 months later, he came home to his confused wife. Honey, she said, you received a very strange postcard today. Oh, just give it to me and I'll explain it later, he said. The wife handed the card over and watched as her husband read the card, turned white, and fainted. On the card was written Spaghetti, Spaghetti, Spaghetti. Two with meatballs, one without.

Utta Drivel Short Stories is a collection of comic short stories read out at Creative Writing evening classes to much laughter. They cover a wide range of subjects. From a neolithic sex strike, to the ancient Egyptians Lotatotty & Obsequiops, to philosophers meeting at the Fill the Greek, the Parthenon canteen. From an abattoir wedding, to the first Russian to laugh in 200 years, to the Knights of the Round Hovel. There are longer short stories about the fun to be had working in the Falkland Islands & Hong Kong. Other short stories tell of rocky horror in Transylvania, of banned fox hunts switching to hunting smokers & sheep taking over Wales. In a different vein, staff in a St Trinians-type school hold an emergency meeting & when a man's private parts suddenly drop off, he considers having a vagina fitted by a quick-fit fanny fitter. And there is a pirate treasure story with Midshipman BraceYourself and a science fiction one that features Startifartlast, a mystic Chinese Constipate.

The Comedian as Confidence Man: Studies in Irony Fatigue
In this lively and fascinating analysis of humorists and their work, Will Kaufman breaks new ground with his irony fatigue theory. The Comedian as Confidence Man examines the humorist's internal conflict between the social critic who demands to be taken seriously and the comedian who never can be: the irony fatigue condition. Concentrating on eight American literary and performing comedians from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, this study explores the irony fatigue affect that seems to pervade the work of comedians-those particular social observers who are obliged to promise, Only kidding, folks, even when they may not be; in G. B. Shaw's words, they must put things in such a way as to make people who would otherwise hang them believe they are joking. If these social observers are obliged to become, in effect, confidence men, with irony as the satiric weapon that both attacks and diverts, then the implications are great for those social critics who above all wish to be heeded.

Damned If You Do . . .
Previously published as Would You Rather . . .?, with 356,000 copies in print, Damned If You Do . . . is an addictive game in a book that challenges readers to ask-and attempt to answer-more than 400 questions that range from the heinous to the nauseating to the downright disturbing. Each is a field-tested conversation starter guaranteed to provoke ridiculous fun, break the ice at any party, and, like some kind of sick Rorschach test, open a unique window into the minds of friends and family. Some questions delight in their own grossness: Would you rather . . . Eat three earthworms-OR-wear a necklace made of them on your wedding day? Be trapped in an elevator with wet dogs-OR-three fat men with bad breath? Some force you to reveal values: Would you rather . . . Age only from the neck up-OR-age only from the neck down? Be stupid and rich-OR-smart and poor? Some create that squirming sensation: Would you rather . . . Get a bad case of poison ivy way up inside your nose-OR-inside your inner ear? And some are just deliciously absurd. Each question also features related, often off-the-wall information, from quotes to dumb jokes to delightfully odd trivia (326-pound President William Howard Taft once got stuck in the White House bathroom).

Darkwood
Magic is forbidden in Myrsina, along with various other abominations, such as girls doing maths. This is bad news for Gretel Mudd, who doesn't perform magic, but does know a lot of maths. When the sinister masked Huntsmen accuse Gretel of witchcraft, she is forced to flee into the neighbouring Darkwood, where witches and monsters dwell. There, she happens upon Buttercup, a witch who can't help turning things into gingerbread, Jack Trott, who can make plants grow at will, the White Knight with her band of dwarves and a talking spider called Trevor. These aren't the terrifying villains she's been warned about all her life. They're actually quite nice. Well... most of them. With the Huntsmen on the warpath, Gretel must act fast to save both the Darkwood and her home village, while unravelling the rhetoric and lies that have demonised magical beings for far too long. Take a journey into the Darkwood in this modern fairy tale that will bewitch adults and younger readers alike. Praise for Gabby Hutchinson Crouch: 'Gabby is one of the funniest writers I know.' Sarah Millican '...very funny. If you like Terry Pratchett, or think gothic fairytales should have more LOLs, 'tis the book for ye.' Greg Jenner 'I have read this and it is great. Pratchetty fun for all the family.' Lucy Porter '...magical, surprising and funny.' Jan Ravens What people are saying about the Darkwood series: 'Clever and funny and so very very entertaining. I would encourage everyone of every age to go ahead and read Darkwood.' 'Completely fabulous, can't wait for the rest of the series.'

Lessons From Lucy: The Simple Joys of an Old, Happy Dog
Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and bestselling author of Dave Barry Turns 40 now shows how to age gracefully, taking cues from his beloved and highly intelligent dog, Lucy. Faced with the obstacles and challenges of life after middle age, Dave Barry turns to his best dog, Lucy, to learn how to live his best life. From Make New Friends (an unfortunate fail when he can't overcome his dislike for mankind) to Don't Stop Having Fun (validating his longtime membership in a marching unit that performs in parades--and even Obama's inauguration), Dave navigates his later years with good humor and grace. Lucy teaches Dave how to live in the present, how to let go of daily grievances, and how to feel good in your own skin. The lessons are drawn from Dave's routine humiliations and stream-of-consciousness accounts of the absurdities of daily life, which will leave you heaving with laughter and recognition. Laugh-out-loud hilarious, whether he's trying to Pay Attention to the People You Love (even when your brain is not listening) or deciding to Let Go of Your Anger, Dave Barry's Lessons From Lucy is a witty and wise guide to joyous living.

All successful people are the same (you know, drive, will to win, determination) - it's just too dull to contemplate. But everyone who messes up big time does so in a way that is completely individual. Step forward the fifty Mexican convicts who dug an escape tunnel out of their jail and came up in the courtroom before the judge who sentenced them. Please welcome the world's worst tourist who spent two days in New York believing he was in Rome. Be thrilled by the man who wrote an English-Portuguese phrasebook without either knowing English or owning an English-Portuguese dictionary. And marvel at the least successful kamikaze pilot who returned from eleven suicide missions, lived to the age of 93 and went on to write an autobiography in which he claimed planes were unsafe. The Not Terribly Good Book of Heroic Failures shows that there really is no limit to what humanity can achieve, celebrating the vast, life-enhancing possibilities of getting it wrong.

Doug Jones 2020 is a futuristic fictional account of how the voters of Alabama rise up in 2020 to take back the U.S. Senate seat that had been accidentally (and crookedly, and with outside tens of millions, and with Internet dirty tricks) won by Democrat Doug Jones in a December 2017 special election. Read how a perfect storm of negative factors produced a U.S. Senator who did not represent the views of the people of Alabama. How voters turned to the State Auditor who had led the ethics complaint that ousted then-Gov. Robert Bentley and who had served as a watchman for the people in state government.

The Woman Who Wanted More: 'Beautifully written, full of insight and food' Katie Fforde
A perfect foodie novel with plenty of bite - ideal for fans of Joanna Cannon, Libby Page and Gail Honeyman. Two women. One unusual cookbook. And a friendship that will show them how to savour each moment . . . Kate Parker is about to turn forty and her world has fallen apart. Her seemingly rock-solid relationship is suddenly up in the air, and she's been forced to move back in with her mother. In need of some distraction, Kate (reluctantly) volunteers at her local retirement home. Cecily Finn is a ninety-seven-year-old resident of Lauderdale House for Exceptional Ladies. Her tongue is as sharp as her mind but lately she's lost her spark, seemingly resigned to the Imminent End. But then Cecily prescribes Kate a self-help recipe book with a difference - and so begins an unlikely friendship between two lonely and stubborn souls. Together, these two very different women - one near the end of her life, one adrift somewhere in the middle - will show each other that food is for feasting, life is for living, and that it's always essential to ask for more. Praise for The Woman Who Wanted More: 'Beautifully written, full of insight and food. This is one of those I carried round the house wanting to read it every spare second' - Katie Fforde 'Wise, warm, witty and mouth-watering - this wonderful book has it all' - Isabelle Broom, Woman & Home 'A fabulous read about finding your way; about friendships and letting go. I adored it' - Nina Pottell, Prima Magazine 'A mouth-watering treat of a book that celebrates food and female friendship . . . An irresistible novel!' - Kate Harrison

Edible Satire: French Cuisine With a Twist
This book is every foodie's dream cookbook, a book like no other: a secret almanac of sorts of the themed degustation nights that have featured in Isadora Chai's venue, Bistro a Table, in Kuala Lumpur-a hole-in-the-wall venue that remains as the only restaurant in Malaysia to have themed degustation dinners every month. Resplendent with stunningly detailed photography, Isadora Chai's cookbook explores her gastro gourmand's take on a delicious array of superbly satirical but infinitely edible recipes. She details many sophisticated-very passionate-and innovative culinary surprises, including a wide range of dishes directly reversed, such as the Reversed Sushi and the Reversed Root Beer Float, where the proportions of the components and the composition of well-known dishes are reversed. Other menus reflect the heady worlds of politics, love and war no less. The book also includes a beautifully illustrated Manga graphic novel-by the author's own hand-which presents an exquisite collection of dishes from the degustation combining modern Japanese food, subculture and art. Intrigued? This book is unique and spectacularly expressive snapshot of a culinary expert whose star continues to be on the rise.

The Men on Magic Carpets: Searching for the superhuman sports star
'An absolute gem. Funny, incredible and brilliantly reported, in Ed Hawkins the sports world has its own Jon Ronson.' - Will Storr The bizarre true story about the cosmic side of sports Ever wondered if the mind tricks used by Luke Skywalker or his Star Wars brethren were real? Ed Hawkins did. A Jedi-wannabe and sports nut, he pondered: what if a coach or athlete had tried to harness such mysterious powers? They would be unstoppable. This set Ed off on an extraordinary adventure across the West Coast of America in search of a superhuman sports star. He discovers cosmic thinkers who, back in their 1960s heyday, believed that through the power of thought alone a superhuman could be created. One that could see into the future, slow down time and control minds. So successful were their tactics that they attracted the attention of the US government. Meanwhile in Russia their Soviet counterparts were employing equally bewildering brain power. Their goal? To win the Cold War. And so from the 1970s and into the Eighties the underground free-thinking movement became a fully-funded state secret in an `inner space race' between the US and the Soviet Union. Both sides attempting to create the perfect human killing machine. It worked. Sort of. Instead of building a super soldier, the mystics from both sides came together to preach peace and love to their political paymasters. After the thaw, the search for the superhuman sports star began again and continues to this day. In The Men on Magic Carpets Ed goes deep into a secret network of supernatural sages and is told about a mysterious American football coach who made it to the top by teaching his players The Force. But can he be found? Will he admit to what he truly believes? And how does our intrepid author cope with his own brush with the Dark Side as the shadowy military once again attempt to use the mystical powers for ill?

Sex Weird-o-Pedia: The Ultimate Book of Shocking, Scandalous, and Incredibly Bizarre Sex Facts
Whether you are an abstinent virgin or a kinky horndog, one thing we can all agree on is that sex manifests itself throughout society in bizarre ways. Sex is the ultimate multidisciplinary subject, and it cannot be confined to a single facet of life. Through a series of amusing tidbits, Sex Weird-o-Pedia will walk you through how sex affects our technologies, economics, politics, religions, and cultures, as well as some strange sex facts that, for better or for worse, will make your conversations memorable to everyone at the party. Bizarre facts include: Which animal species engage in necrophilia Who has done it in outer space Why premature ejaculation has evolutionary advantages How masturbation led to the invention of cereal And more! Knowing that Calvin Klein cologne turns tigers on probably won't help you get laid, but it could prove useful if you're in a conversation needing some pizzazz-or you find yourself in mixed company with a bunch of large cats. Ross Benes is the author of Turned On: A Mind-Blowing Investigation into How Sex Has Shaped Our World, which Kirkus called a probing, multifaceted commentary on the social science of sex and society. He has written for many publications including Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, and Rolling Stone, among others. A native Nebraskan, Ross now lives in New York with his mutt Cooper.

The Field Guide to Dumb Birds of North America
Perfect for the anti-aviary (or bird fanatic with a sense of humor), this snarky illustrated handbook is equal parts profane, funny, and-let's face it-true. Featuring 50 common North American birds, such as the White-Breasted Butt Nugget and the Goddamned Canada Goose (or White-Breasted Nuthatch and Canada Goose for the layperson), Kracht identifies all the idiots in your backyard and details exactly why they suck with humorous, yet angry, ink drawings. Each entry is accompanied by facts about a bird's (annoying) call, its (dumb) migratory pattern, its (downright tacky) markings, and more. With migratory maps and tips for birding, plus musings on the avian population and the ethics of birdwatching, this is the essential guide to all things wings. No need to wonder what all that racket is anymore!
