"From the appearances of the human race in Africa, four million years ago, to our ultimate destiny beyond the stars, Martin Rowson's first novel takes us to Mexico under the Aztecs, the Inquisition in Rome, the secrets of the Internet, the bogs of Irish nationalism, introduces an alcoholic werewolf and his dog, educates us in literary and management theory, glimpses 9/11, journalism, warfare, time travel, the Arts and Crafts Movement, Global Warming, personal therapy and focuses on Hell. Retelling the stories of the worst decisions the human race has ever made - and featuring a cast that includes Saint Simeon Stylites, Hernando Cortes, Adolf Hitler, Evelyn Waugh, Sigmund Freud, Josef Stalin and Candide in Las Vegas, and with supporting roles from Henry Kissinger, Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, Pol Pot and Osama Bin Laden (as well as Superman and a talking sturgeon), Snatches is an exploration of love, art, politics, history and just how bloody awful it is to be here."--BOOK JACKET

This collection of Leo Abse's last essays are writings that he was working on from 2006 up to and during his final illness. They take as their starting point stories from the Old Testament. For Abse, the Bible provided a great inspiration for analysis, reflection, and speculation. His own distinctive voice is evident in every essay. Chapters include: Jubal: A discursive meditation on music and its origins; Jacob's wrestling match; The judgment of Solomon; Abishag: The lure of incest; and The nakedness of Noah

Curiosities of literature : a book-lover's anthology of literary erudition by John Sutherland( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 33 libraries worldwide
One of our best-known and best-loved literary critics turns his attention to the more bizarre areas of literature in this miscellany of fact and trivia. Which author had the heaviest brain? What was the original title of 1984? What do 12% of all winners of the Booker prize have in common? When did cigarettes start making an appearance in English literature? And, while we're at it, who wrote the first Western, and is there any link between asthma and literary genius? Sutherland's irreverent literary masterpiece illuminates every topic imaginable, from author advances to civil war literature to Victorian sex to odd-things-eaten-by-literary characters (think Patrick Bateman's girlfriend in American Psycho). This is the ideal anthology of useless information for all book lovers
Standing for something by Mark Seddon( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
Mark Seddon is best known in Britain as a leading member of the Awkward Squad, a thorn in the flesh of New Labour as editor of Tribune, house magazine of the Left, for over a decade. In that role and as a member of Labour's National Executive Committee, he scurried around the corridors of power, gaining a unique perspective on the activities of Blair, Brown and Mandelson - and of less familiar figures who played their part in the story of New Labour. Standing for Something is the record of an unusual political life played out on an international stage
