  • Flight from Deathrow
    by Hill, Harry

    A novel about life, love and a pig called Estrakhan Harry Hill's debut novel is
    a brilliantly funny adventure through a surreal world, where pigs might not fly,
    but they can get their own newspaper column and reality TV show. When Harry's
    offered a gig at a gonk factory in Leeds, he leaps at the chance. It's the
    perfect opportunity to get away from his flatmate Prince Edward, and the twenty
    pygmies renting space in his sock drawer. Little does Harry realise that this
    decision will lead him on a fantastical journey, into a world where nothing is
    quite what it seems... Now with new material - including an alternative ending -
    Flight From Deathrow is a hugely entertaining and imaginative shaggy pig story
    from one of our finest and best-loved comedians.

  • Rebirth
    by Woo

    An ambitious and powerful account of modern Irish history through the eyes of
    those who experienced it at first hand. Forty years after the Provisional IRA
    was formed and British troops arrived in Ireland, Peter Robinson and Martin
    McGuinness sit together as leaders of a devolved Northern Irish government, in
    which Sinn Fin and the Democratic Unionists share power. The Troubles appear to
    be over; the future promises to be quite different from the past. But recent
    events perhaps suggest otherwise, as old tensions rise to the forefront once
    more. Through countless interviews with the people from both sides that lived
    through, participated in and were victims of the Troubles, the author builds a
    picture of the attitudes and the beliefs that shaped three decades of Ireland's
    history. There are those whose lives have been shattered, those who have tried
    to ignore the realities, those who have attempted to bridge the divide, those
    who do not accept the peace, and some who refuse to look back at all. What
    emerges is a balanced and wide-ranging account that explores the struggle
    between ideology and compassion, how the battles and politics of centuries ago
    still define people's attitudes towards their neighbours today, and how
    political injustice and the course of time can make a complex reality seem like
    simple history.

  • Knights' Tales : The Summit Writers' Project
    by Venner, Thomas

    Knights' Tales is a collection of short stories; created by eight different
    authors, with each writer contributing a work of art, tempered by her own
    personal experiences. Their tales cover a gamut of themes, each one incisive and
    poignant, and each one articulating a basic human need. These writers may only
    be middle school-aged, but their minds and hearts are already delving into the
    fundamental needs of humanity. Knights' Tales is the second literary endeavor of
    The Summit Writers' Project. Like Faded Secrets, it is a celebration of an
    extraordinary synthesis of creativity and talent.

    This is a pre-1923 historical reproduction that was curated for quality. Quality
    assurance was conducted on each of these books in an attempt to remove books
    with imperfections introduced by the digitization process. Though we have made
    best efforts - the books may have occasional errors that do not impede the
    reading experience. We believe this work is culturally important and have
    elected to bring the book back into print as part of our continuing commitment
    to the preservation of printed works worldwide.
