IS IT JUST ME?

Miranda Heart

Miranda Hart made her mark appearing in shows including Smack the Pony, Absolutely Fabulous and Not Going Out.

TRUTHS, HALF TRUTHS AND LITTLE WHITE LIES: A MEMOIR

Nick Frost

Nick's family life was difficult, blighted by alcoholism, illness and sudden misfortune meaning they lost everything overnight. He left school early and drifted from job to job dogged by his own personal demons. It's something of a miracle that Nick survived and even more that he would achieve such success with his writing, acting and comedy.


In Truths, Half Truths and Little White Lies Nick paints a brilliantly funny, moving and brutally candid portrait of childhood, adolescence and eventual success.


PUDSEY: MY AUTOBIdogRAPHY

Pudsey

Born into the menagerie of animals that fills the Butler household, Pudsey always knew he was different to his dog-standard brothers and sisters. Never content with the walk-eat-sleep routine, he felt in his bones that he was destined for the stage. With no small amount of help from his fellow pets, and despite some dastardly opposition threatening to thwart him at every turn, he made it. And his Autobidography reveals for the first time exactly how he did it.

It's the bona fido story, straight from the mutt's mouth. So sit down, stay a while, and you'll find out exactly howl the people's pooch made it to the big time.


REVOLUTION

Russell Brand

We all know the system isn't working. Our governments are corrupt and the opposing parties pointlessly similar. Our culture is filled with vacuity and pap, and we are told there's nothing we can do – "it's just the way things are".


In this book, Russell Brand hilariously lacerates the straw men and paper tigers of our conformist times and presents, with the help of experts as diverse as Thomas Piketty and George Orwell, a vision for a fairer, sexier society that's fun and inclusive.


You have been lied to, told there's no alternative, no choice and that you don't deserve any better. Brand destroys this illusory facade as amusingly and deftly as he annihilates Morning Joe anchors, Fox News fascists and BBC stalwarts.


This book makes revolution not only possible, but inevitable and fun.


HIM & ME

Jack & Michael Whiteall

'This book is a portrait of the pretty odd relationship I have with my elderly father. It's given me an opportunity to share memories of him losing his temper with foreigners on holidays, being rude to my mother's family at Christmas and failing epically during the fathers' race at my prep school. He's also written some stories about me, but can I just say, before you read anything, that I recall being a calm, well-behaved and learned child, not the intellectually subnormal, mal-coordinated dipshit that he paints me as. Nor am I, as he suggests inside, a sex addict, a flasher or a Scientologist.' – Jack


'How dare Jack refer to me as elderly! People always tell me how young I look for my age. In this book, I have at last been able to recount the many occasions when I have been let down by my only son. He failed on the stage, the sports field and he even screwed up the interview for his first boarding school by pretending he had mental health issues. Despite being practically illiterate, he tells stories about me, strewn with grammatical errors and peppered with endless exaggerations and lies. I was a kind, doting father, who guided his son through his formative years with love, care and respect.' – Michael


'I'm not your only son, what about Barnaby?'

'Oh yes, I forgot about Barnaby.'
