Scavenger, David Morrell
121 David Morrell Scavenger
Headline 228959 Great Britain 2007 0755337174 / 9780755337170 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition David Morrells Creepers was a publishing event in 2005, a powerful, edgy, dark thriller by a master of the genre. A New York Times bestseller, it won the prestigious Bram Stoker Award and earned numerous critical raves. Scavenger, Morrells latest novel, takes us in a harrowing new direction-a desperate high-tech scavenger hunt for a 100-year-old time capsule. Frank Balenger, the resolute but damaged hero of Creepers, now finds himself trapped in a nightmarish game of fear and death. To save himself and the woman he loves, he must play by the rules of a god-like Game Master with an obsession for unearthing the past. But sometimes the past is buried for a reason. Scavenger is a brilliant and frightening hunter-hunted tale that layers modern technology over the dusty artifacts of earlier times. The result is a surreal palimpsest, one that contains the secret of survival for Balenger and a handful of unwilling players who race against the games clock to solve the puzzle of the time capsule, only to discover that time is the true scavenger. Morrells trademark action sequences are embedded with fascinating historical clues that make Scavenger a thrill-a-minute page-turner as well as a mesmerizing literary experience 308 pages.

David Shade Corporation 244395 USA 2009 0692004475 / 9780692004470 Trade Paperback Near Fine Condition Women can only get all the things they really want when men know these truths, but women cannot speak these truths because that would violate all the rules. Society covers up these truths to maintain order, but it leaves women unfulfilled and men confused. Men are further frustrated by the seemingly contradictory logic of women. She wants a 'nice guy' yet she is addicted to a self-absorbed jerk. Has a woman ever cried on your shoulder because the bad boy that she is so in love with is inconsiderate, while you are a respectful 'good guy'? What is this power that bad boys have? They operate outside of social norms, and thus know the secrets. After many years in development, the book that needed to be written reveals the truths hidden behind social programming and explains the female mind with perfect clarity. A good guy, equipped with these truths, is far more powerful than any bad boy could ever comprehend. Like wearing X-ray vision glasses, the truth breaks the restraints of misconceptions and kicks butt into an enlightened future of personal empowerment. Discovered: What women want. Freud never could figure it out, but David Shade did. Explained: Why nice girls have the rape fantasy. The secrets make perfect sense of it. Exposed: Why women go outside of their marriage. There are four things that a woman must have, and she will risk her own marriage to get them. Revealed: How to bring out her primal carnal ruthlessly expressive natural sexual creature. Every woman has an inner animal waiting and wanting to be unleashed. David Shade is the renegade sex expert who had the courage to go outside the boundaries of conventional wisdom to find the things that really work, and work very powerfully. He has improved the sex lives of tens of thousands of men worldwide, has been a featured speaker at sexuality and relationship conferences, has been on numerous radio shows, has been interviewed by many experts for their interview series, and gets $500 an hour for consultation. When it comes to teaching men how to give women wild screaming orgasms and how to bring out her inner animal, David Shade is a trained killer. If you are a man who respects women and has the brass balls to handle the truth and a sense of responsibility enough to be entrusted with the power, you are the man who can make a woman wildly happy. Things will never look the same again. Women want you to know the truth, but for them to tell you the truth would violate all the rules. That's why it's called... Secrets. Women are glad to see someone else explain it. Women are happy to endorse this. Then they get exactly what they really want. Discover what those rules are, why they cannot violate those rules, why they want men to know the truth, and what it is that women truly want. 270 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Dear Fatty, Dawn French
124 Dawn French Dear Fatty
Century 238664 Australia 2008 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition One of the greatest comedy actresses of our time, Dawn French has a career that has spanned nearly three decades, encompassing a vast and brilliant array of characters. Loved for her irreverant humour, she has achieved massive success while pushing boundaries and challenging stereotypes. In this memoir in the form of letters to people in her life, she describes her journey. Beginning her career as part of the groundbreaking alternative comedy group the Comic Strip, she then helped firmly establish a place for women in British comedy with Girls On Top, which teamed Dawn with Jennifer Saunders, Ruby Wax, and Tracey Ullman. As part of the wildly successful and much-loved duo French and Saunders, Dawn helped create a repertoire of brilliantly observed characters, parodying popular culture and impersonating everything from Harry Potter to The Exorcist. Dawn's recent role in the Vicar of Dibley showcased both her talent and also her ability to take a controversial issue and make it mainstream—and very funny. From her apartment-sharing antics with Jennifer Saunders to the death of her father, from her outspoken views on sizeism to her views on Madonna, Dear Fatty will chronicle the extraordinary, hilarious rise of a complex, dynamic, and unstoppable woman. 366 pages.

Then Again, Diane Keaton
132 Diane Keaton Then Again
Random House 237522 New York 2011 First Edition 1400068789 / 9781400068784 Hardcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket The Sunday Business Post Mom loved adages, quotes, slogans. There were always little reminders pasted on the kitchen wall. For example, the word THINK. I found THINK thumbtacked on a bulletin board in her darkroom. I saw it Scotch-taped on a pencil box she'd collaged. I even found a pamphlet titled THINK on her bedside table. Mom liked to THINK. So begins Diane Keaton's unforgettable memoir about her mother and herself. In it you will meet the woman known to tens of millions as Annie Hall, but you will also meet, and fall in love with, her mother, the loving, complicated, always-thinking Dorothy Hall. To write about herself, Diane realized she had to write about her mother, too, and how their bond came to define both their lives. In a remarkable act of creation, Diane not only reveals herself to us, she also lets us meet in intimate detail her mother. Over the course of her life, Dorothy kept eighty-five journals--literally thousands of pages--in which she wrote about her marriage, her children, and, most probingly, herself. Dorothy also recorded memorable stories about Diane's grandparents. Diane has sorted through these pages to paint an unflinching portrait of her mother--a woman restless with intellectual and creative energy, struggling to find an outlet for her talents--as well as her entire family, recounting a story that spans four generations and nearly a hundred years. More than the autobiography of a legendary actress, Then Again is a book about a very American family with very American dreams. Diane will remind you of yourself, and her bonds with her family will remind you of your own relationships with those you love the most. 265 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

4th Estate 238339 London 2011 First Edition 0007435703 / 9780007435708 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Autobiography of the world-famous, and much-loved, actress. Best known for her role as Annie Hall in Woody Allen's film of the same name, for which she won an Academy Award for Best Actress, Keaton has had a fascinating and highly successful career, with roles in 'The Godfather', 'Reds', 'Father of the Bride', 'Something's Gotta Give' and many more. Personally Keaton has had relationships with Woody Allen, Warren Beatty, and Al Pacino - all of whom she remains in touch with today and who she will speak about in the book. Diane Keaton's mother suffered from Alzheimer's, and during the fifteen year long battle with this heartbreaking and debilitating disease, Diane began to reflect on both of their lives - their commonalities and their differences, the dreams they each realized and the dreams they deferred. Soon after her mother passed away last September, Diane started to write. The result is a memoir that is as touching, funny, and iconic as its author; an illumination of an ordinary girl's journey to become an extraordinary woman - and the defining relationship that made it all possible. Diane Keaton's Academy Award-winning career, both in front of and behind the camera, has made her a cinema legend and touchstone for a generation. 265 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs.

HarperCollins 243220 Great Britain 1994 First Edition 000255545X / 9780002555456 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good This first part of Doris Lessing's autobiography covers her African childhood and youth, her involvement in communist politics, and her departure for England and a new life. It is a self-portrait of a woman who lived through "an extraordinary time, the end of the British Empire in Africa". Being lifted high up onto her father's horse, watching ostriches high-stepping over the empty distances of the Cape, travelling in ox carts to the new African farm with trunks full of Liberty material and English silver - so begins Doris Lessing's childhood. Born in 1919, into the aftermath of World War I, Doris Lessing was the daughter of middle-class English parents lured by the false promises of the Empire Exhibition to seek their fortune in African farming. For her parents, life in dry, dusty Africa never fulfilled its expectations, but for Doris Lessing, her early life in Southern Rhodesia, with its contradictions and complexities, proved to be fundamental to her evolution as a writer. Readers are taken through her childhood and early youth on the farm, first marriage, the rapturous births of her children, the abandonment of her family to gain independence and a political life, and her second marriage to Gottfried Lessing, an authoritarian, rigorous communist. The book ends as she loses hope of ever changing Africa, and prepares to leave for England with the manuscript of her first novel, "The Grass is Springing" - the key to a new life. 419 pages.

Pan Macmillan 234792 Australia 2007 073291082X / 9780732910822 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition Australian gynaecologists Catherine and Reg Hamlin arrived in Addis Ababa in 1959 to establish a midwifery school. Over 30 years later, Catherine is still there, running one of the world's most outstanding medical programs. Through this work thousands of Ethiopian women have returned to a normal existence after living as outcasts, often for more than half their lives. These women endured obstructed labours. As a result of obstructed labour not only does the baby die, but the woman's bladder, vagina or rectum is torn. These tears are called fistulas, and the result is a constant leaking from either the bladder or rectum into the vagina. Soiled and helpless, the women are abandoned by their husbands and often left to beg, or scavenge. The Hamlins dedicated their lives to pioneering new surgery and opening their own fistula hospital in 1974. Now, Catherine writes about their extraordinary lives and the stories of hope and courage that surround their hospital. Her book is a testament to the power of healing, and reveals the hidden suffering of millions of women in developing countries. 308 pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1.
