Open the Cage, Murphy! – Further savagely funny and deeply moving true life adventures – Just 99p 0 comments

To describe Open the Cage, Murphy as action-packed is a massive understatement. The book takes us on a roller coaster ride through a decade of Paul O’Grady’s life and is stuffed to the gunwales with hilarious stories, extreme situations and outrageous one-liners. At the end of Paul’s previous volume of autobiography, Still Standing, his brilliant comic creation Lily Savage stood on the brink of fame. Here, Lily embraces success as to the manner born, and world domination beckons!
Along the way, the stories come thick and fast. Paul is involved in a plane crash, gets caught up in the LA riots and has a close encounter with Madonna. He takes us with him to a gay-themed weekend in Butlin’s in Skegness, on a rowdy tour with Prisoner Cell Block H – the Musical and into the depths of the Australian rainforest, where he befriends a rare bird that can disembowel a man with a single kick. The dramatis personae include a family of dolphins, Charlton Heston and the ghost of Joan of Arc – and there’s a starring role for a certain remarkable dog, Buster Elvis Savage.

Comedy and Error – They Really Were Marvellous Times by Simon Day – Just 99p 0 comments

Simon Day’s memoir is a story of unlikely successes and secret lives. In the early 1980s he was a petty thief living rough in South East London and stealing whatever he could to fund an addiction to fruit machines. He was arrested and sentenced to borstal. Simon’s memoir tells the story of how this nice, middle-class boy from the suburbs — a self-confessed ‘crap criminal’ — served time with the professionals and hard-cases in a jail fiercely divided along racial lines during the height of the 1981 riots. It moves on to the lucky breaks, the talent getting recognised, the ‘redemption’ of his years as a celebrity . . . with the parallel story of his addiction which — with money and success — became fuelled by drugs.
Dark and dramatic, Simon Day’s memoir is a laugh-out-loud-funny story of drugs, crime and comedy. Buy it today for only 99p.

Penguins Stopped Play – Eleven village cricketers take on the world – Just 99p 0 comments

It seemed a simple enough idea at the outset: to assemble a team of eleven men to play cricket on each of the seven continents of the globe. Except – hold on a minute – that’s not a simple idea at all.
And when you throw in incompetent airline officials, amorous Argentine Colonels’ wives, cunning Bajan drug dealers, gay Australian waiters, overzealous American anti-terrorist police, idiot Welshmen dressed as Santa Claus, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and whole armies of pitch-invading Antarctic penguins, you quickly arrive at a whole lot more than you bargained for.

Poirot and Me – A charming memoir from David Suchet – Just 99p 0 comments

In the summer of 2013 David Suchet filmed his final scenes as Hercule Poirot. After 24 years in the role, he played the character in every story that Agatha Christie wrote about him (bar one, deemed unfilmable) and felt it time to bid adieu to a role and a character that changed his life.
In Poirot and Me, David Suchet tells the story of how he secured the part, with the blessing of Agatha Christie’s daughter, and set himself the task of presenting the most authentic Poirot that had ever been filmed.
David Suchet is uniquely placed to write the ultimate companion to one of the world’s longest running television series. Peppered with anecdotes about filming, including many tales of the guest stars who have appeared over the years, the book is essential reading for Poirot fans all over the world.

May I Have Your Attention Please? – The hilarious story of one of our most popular comedy stars – £1.99 0 comments

So… the story of my life.
I’ve often thought about this moment, about what it would be like to write my memoirs. I always thought it would make me feel important. It doesn’t. If anything it makes me feel a little strange.
The truth is, I should never have been this famous guy. I wasn’t the cool, clever, good-looking boy at school. But I always dreamt of it, hoped for it, longed for it: throughout school when I was disruptive, in my teens when I tried to form my own boy band and through hundreds of auditions for parts which were met with constant rejection. Until finally I co-wrote Gavin and Stacey. And my whole life changed.
This is that story. The story of how I found myself here, talking to you.

Peggy and Me by Miranda Hart – A hilarious account of her life with her close companion Peggy – Just 99p 0 comments

Hello dear book browser and welcome to Peggy & Me, the story of my life since getting a beautiful Shih-Tzu Bichon Frise cross puppy (I call the breed a Shitty Frise – fun) in the form of Peggy.
Some of you may be thinking: “a book about a dog, how totally brilliant, I need hear no more, I’m sold.” In which case we should be best friends and go out to tea together, every day.
It’s been a bumpy old road, but Peggy has been lovingly by my side through some life-changing moments and I wouldn’t have coped without her. Most surprisingly she has taught me a huge amount – not how to get an old pie packet out of a bin and lick it (I could already do that), but real lessons about life and love and trust and friendship.
Put aside any doggy reservations and come walkies with Peggy and me …
