Endless Night, Agatha Christie
1 Agatha Christie Endless Night
The Crime Club 234757 London 1967 Hardcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket Strapped by a chauffeur's wages, Michael Rogers' want of a better life seems out of reach. Especially elusive is a magnificent piece of property in Kingston Bishop--unil a chance meeting with a beautiful heiress makes his dreams possible. Marrying her is the first step. Building the perfect home is the next. Unfortunately, Michael ignored the local warnings about the deadly curse buried in the tract of land, and living out his dreams may exact a higher price than he ever imagined. Praised as one of Agatha Christie's most unusual forays into gothic, psychological suspense, this novel of fate, chance, and the nature of evil was a personal favorite of the author's as well. 224 pages.

Afternoon Men, Anthony Powell
4 Anthony Powell Afternoon Men
Fontana / Collins 232301 1979 000615137X / 9780006151371 Softcover Very Good Condition First published in 1931, Afternoon Men tracks the trivial encounters and empty pastimes of the social set through William Atwater. With a glee in demolishing pretenses that rivals the works of Max Beerbohm and Evelyn Waugh, Powell exposes artistic pretension, aristocratic jadedness, and the dark side of the "glamorous" life. But as Atwater finds his love for Susan Nunnery dissipate in this atmosphere, Powell moves beyond satire into darker territory. Language is stripped of meaning and human contact is thwarted until even action turns events back upon themselves in an endless cycle of futility. 191 pages. Age tanning to pages.

Unless, Carol Shields
5 Carol Shields Unless
Fourth Estate 235807 Great Britain 2002 0007139292 / 9780007139293 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition The oldest daughter of 44-year-old Reta Winters suddenly, inexplicably, drops out of college and ends up on a Toronto street corner panhandling, with a cardboard sign around her neck that reads "goodness." The quiet comforts of Reta's small-town life and the constancy of her feminist perspective sustain her hope that her daughter will snap out of this, whatever "this" is. Threaded into her family's crisis is her ongoing internal elegy on the exclusion of women from the literary canon, which she transposes to mean her daughter's exclusion from humanity. Reta wonders if her daughter has discovered, as she herself did years before, that the world is "an endless series of obstacles, an alignment of locked doors," and has chosen to pursue the one thing that doesn't require power or a voice: goodness. 213 pages.

David Beckham: My Side, David Beckham
7 David Beckham David Beckham: My Side
CollinsWillow 237617 Australia 2003 0007157347 / 9780007157341 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition David Beckham is one of the world's foremost media icons, his popularity transcending sport and cultural divides. This is his own in-depth account of his career to date, for Manchester United and England, and of his childhood, family and personal life. With endless newspaper column inches devoted to one of the most talked about men in the world, it seems that we know everything there is to know about David Beckham. Or do we? This is Beckham's fascinating life story in his own words. His complex relationship with United boss Alex Ferguson and how he handles the pressure of playing alongside some of the most volatile footballers of his generation, from the likes of Cantona, Schmeichel and Keane. The England story, from being vilified by the nation before returning as the prodigal son and almost single-handedly guiding his country as captain to the 2002 World Cup Finals. One minute we are singing his praises; the next we are castigating him for losing control of his temper and being a poor role model. Where does the truth lie? Now from Beckham himself, we gain a vivid and at times searingly honest insight into the family man behind the famous footballer, the international model and fashion leader. He describes how he first met and then married ex-Spice girl Victoria Adams, and the upbringing of their two children Brooklyn and Romeo. How his family's every step is monitored by a possee of newshounds and paparazzi. Also, the influence of his parents, growing up as a shy youngster in the family home, and how their subsequent split affected him. This book is an intimate and soul-searching portrayal of a massive celebrity, a family man, and an awe-inspiring footballer -- the likes of which we are unlikely to see again. 404 pages.

Ireland - The Land of Heart's Desire, Elisabetaa Canoro
9 Elisabetaa Canoro Ireland - The Land of Heart's Desire
Gill & Macmillan 231835 Dublin 2003 First Edition 0717136906 / 9780717136902 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Seagulls wheeling over the cliffs, white horses on the dark blue sea whipped up by the wind, and above, three hundred feet up the sheer rock face, an endless grassy expanse interrupted only by dry stone walls. Ireland is a country of time in slow motion, where tubby, long-maned ponies still draw wooden carts of peat, as they have done for the last ten centuries. This is the Ireland of islands and archipelagos anchored to time-honoured traditions, of small towns and pretty fishing villages, moors and a Celtic history, poverty and dignified suffering. But it is also the island of archaeological sites, hermits shrouded in mystery, and of Dublin, the capital of the cities built on a human scale, which has expanded on a cosmopolitan path in the recent years without losing its character. Scenic photographs, portraits of men and women from every corner of the island, and scenes from everyday life in the peace of the countryside and the hurly-burly of the city: a thousand faces of Ireland have been immortalised in this book, in an itinerary that readers can follow in person, letting their imagination and emotions run free as they are swept up in the beauty of this land on the extreme edge of Europe. 295 pages.

Geri Halliwell: If Only, Geri Halliwell
10 Geri Halliwell Geri Halliwell: If Only
Bantam Books 237620 Great Britain 1999 0593045831 / 9780593045831 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Like many starstruck girls, Geri Halliwell grew up with one ambition. She wanted to be famous. She had the drive, the energy, the fierce determination to succeed. If only she could get that one lucky break - that one chance - she'd prove to all the doubters that she could make it, and make it big. But as Geri discovered, the road to fame can be a rocky one. Often broke and desperately lonely, her life became an endless round of failed auditions and dead-end jobs. Even her stint as a glamour model and her role as a game show host in Turkey, failed to gain her a foothold on the ladder to fame. Until one day, almost reluctantly, she answered an ad in The Stage. Someone was looking for candidates to form an all-girl band. The rest is history. As Ginger Spice, Geri's stage presence was formidable, her outfits legendary. The Spice Girls enjoyed a succession of number one hits, two successful albums and a box office hit movie. But Geri wanted her feet back on the ground. It was time to walk away, to find out who she was when she wasn't Ginger Spice. Amidst a blaze of media speculation Geri left the Spice Girls in May 1998. Now focusing on her solo career, and with a number one hit single and bestselling album already to her credit, Geri also works tirelessly for charities such as the UN's Breast Cancer Care campaign and Comic Relief. At its heart "If Only" is about fame and the rollercoaster journey one young girl took from obscurity to the world of her dreams. Believing fame would provide the answer to life's problems, she came to understand that the real solutions lie elsewhere. 367 pages. Illustrated with colour and black and white photographs.

Under The Feet of Jesus, Helena Maria Viramontes
12 Helena Maria Viramontes Under The Feet of Jesus
A Dutton Book 228201 USA 1995 First Edition 0525939490 / 9780525939498 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good At the center of this powerful tale is Estrella, a girl about to cross over the perilous border to womanhood. What she knows of life comes from her mother, who has survived abandonment by her husband in a land that treats her as if she were invisible, even though she and her children pick the crops of the farms that feed its people...from the aging but iron-bodied man who reluctantly becomes the head of the family, even as dreams of his youth in Mexico are calling him home...and from the endless highways and vast fields of California, where they travel and work together. But within Estrella, seeds of growth and change are stirring. And in the arms of Alejo, only a few years older than herself, they burst into full fierce flower, as she tastes the joy and pain of first love. Estrella begins to listen to her own inner voice in giving herself to that love. She comes to learn the value of life and discovers her own power to defy a system that would otherwise keep her down. Pushed to the margins of society, she learns to fight back and is able to help the young farmworker she loves when his ambitions and very life are threatened in a harvest of death. Infused with the beauty of the California landscape and shifting splendors of the passing seasons juxtaposed with the bleakness of poverty, this vividly imagined novel, so observant and full of wisdom, is worthy of the people it celebrates and whose story it tells so magnificently. The simple lyrical beauty of Viramontes's prose, her haunting use of image and metaphor, and the urgency of her themes all announce Under the Feet of Jesus as a landmark work of American fiction. 180 pages.

What emerges in his sessions with the psychiatrist Balthazar, however, is something far more complex - and unfathomably more sinister - than neurosis.

Jon is Mr Very Nice Guy - he can't understand why he can't attract a girlfriend. Tracy, on the other hand, is never short of a man, but they seem to treat her so casually - for example, her present guy, Phil, plays guitar in a band, and comes back to the apartment in the middle of the night expecting her to get up and produce supper. Jon will only pull the girls, Tracy explains, when he learns to be a Bad Boy, too, and she undertakes to effect the transformation. The results are astonishing. A trendy haircut, cool new clothes and endless lectures on behaviour later, and Jon's nerdy friends and Tracy's man-hungry female colleagues are hot with jealousy (in the case of the former) and desire (in the case of the latter.) But stories like this one always have a nasty twist in the tale - and this one is no exception... 324 pages. Pen mark to bottom of page edges indicating remainder mark. Quantity Available: 1.
