With These Hands

'Pam Ayres is absolutely essential to British humour' Mail on Sunday 'A national treasure' Daily Express Delighting her fans for more than four decades with her mischievous wit and wry observations, this is a classic collection of poems and monologues from Pam Ayres, which takes us back to where it all began. From the nostalgia of her 1950's childhood, conjuring up images of hand-knitted swimming costumes and suet puddings, through Pam's four years in the WRAF where she discovered the joy of performing, to poignant reflections on motherhood and watching her children grow up. With These Hands provides a profound and hilarious insight into the joys and tribulations of daily life, as recorded by the nation's favourite poet.

Head in the Clouds

Head in the Clouds is the debut poetry collection by Doncaster-based writer and humorist John Fedorenko. A fun, quirky compendium of thoughts and musings on various topics, ranging from the frustration felt by having a low phone battery to the utter delight of experiencing gut-busting laughter. John shares childhood memories of his bizarrely behaved first pet and of growing up with an ancient TV. He reveals his unlikely idea for a remarkable invention and the real reason vending machines get stuck! Poems on the philosophy of life and the fragility of time are presented alongside those on the importance of tea and how he was once madly jealous of a hamster. There’s even a poem about writing a poem... From the serious to the surreal, from longer pieces to witty single-verse observations and traditionally written limericks, Head in the Clouds offers an entertaining, funny and uplifting insight into the mind of a self-confessed scatterbrain!

Reelin  in the Years

*Includes iTunes Festival: Studio Session with Mark Radcliffe discussing his new book, Reelin' In the Years, with Edith Bowman. Mark read four chapters from the book, and talked about his life in music. When Mark Radcliffe was born in the late 1950s, Britain was trying to find its own version of the dangerously sexy Elvis … we gave the world Cliff Richard but by the time Mark was old enough to recognise pop songs on the radio, the UK was exploding into the world's most exciting place to be for a young music fan. In this, his eagerly awaited new book, Mark Radcliffe takes a record from each year of his life, using the song as a starting point from which to reach out and pull together a wonderfully entertaining catalogue of memories and asides about British culture. And, as one would expect from this unique and popular broadcaster, the tunes he lists are not the usual suspects. From The Kinks' 'See My Friends', through Slade's 'Coz I Luv You' to Kraftwerk's 'Europe Endless' and Joy Division's 'Atmosphere', Mark's selections bring forth a diverse collision of styles from eras uniquely defined by their musical genres and fashions. Bringing his choices right up to the present day, we see the inclusion of artists such as Richard Hawley, Elbow and Fleet Foxes. Mark's hugely entertaining and affectionate trawl through his favourite music of the past 50 years is guaranteed to surprise and delight his many fans.
