Peter Kay's unerring gift for observing the absurdities and eccentricities of family life has earned himself a widespread, everyman appeal. These vivid observations coupled with a kind of nostalgia that never fails to grab his audience's shared understanding, have earned him comparisons with Alan Bennett and Ronnie Barker. In his award winning TV series' he creates worlds populated by degenerate, bitter, useless, endearing and always recognisable characters which have attracted a huge and loyal following. In many ways he's an old fashioned kind of comedian and the scope and enormity of his fanbase reflects this. He doesn't tell jokes about politics or sex, but rather rejoices in the far funnier areas of life: elderly relatives and answering machines, dads dancing badly at weddings, garlic bread and cheesecake, your mum's HRT... His autobiography is full of this kind of humour and nostalgia, beginning with Kay's first ever driving lesson, taking him back through his Bolton childhood, the numerous jobs he held after school and leading up until the time he passed his driving test and found fame.

With two suitors battling for her affections, will Frances listen to her heart or her head? The Sound of Her Laughter is an engrossing saga from Margaret Thornton of a young teacher's homecoming to Blackpool. Perfect for fans of Nadine Dorries and Dilly Court. It is with mixed with feelings that Frances Goodwin, a pretty young infant school teacher, returns to Blackpool from Yorkshire to look after her increasingly ailing mother, Iris. It's not long before Frances is frustrated - not just with the severe lack of space at her mother's small bungalow, but also with constantly having to give an account of her movements. Deciding to expand her horizons to compensate for this lack of freedom, she joins an operatic society where her love of singing and drama is rekindled. However, some real drama enters her life in the form of Adrian Glover, the new local Methodist minister, who visits her school regularly to take assemblies. Kindly, cheerful and completely dependable, Adrian falls in love with Frances and when he asks her to marry him she says yes without hesitation. But the engagement does not go as smoothly as she'd expected. Not only does her mother's health drastically deteriorate but she also gets to know a new colleague: the distinguished, devilishly good-looking Marcus Avery... What readers are saying about Margaret Thornton: '[Margaret Thornton is] one of those writers with a sure skill in creating characters who become real to the reader. Indeed, so much so that they seem to leap out of the pages and make the story of which they're a part even more compelling' 'Margaret Thornton is a brilliant storyteller. Her books draw you in, so you feel you know the characters. Hard to put down' 'Five stars'

Our world is brimming with sound: from the detonation of distant thunder to the drip, drip drip of a rusty drainpipe. Once we’ve been shown how to listen more attentively and creatively, we can access a deeper, more lasting meditation. Our thoughts, dreams and daydreams might be carried along a stream of birdsong, or punctuated by a rush of unexpected laughter. Learning about sound––where, how and why it comes into being––is learning about the world itself. In Mindfulness in Sound, Mark Tanner encourages us to consider afresh the origins of resonance and the wider impact of natural sound in our daily lives. Through simple meditations, he shows us how we can become more receptive to a hinterland of beautiful as well as challenging noise, and tune into the soundtrack of our own imagination. As we consider the nature of sound––and the sound of nature––we will find ourselves connected more vibrantly to the world we live in and to a more sustainable inner peace.

A History Of English Laughter

Is there a 'history' of laughter? Or isn't laughter an anthropological constant rather and thus beyond history, a human feature that has defined humanity ashomo ridens from cave man and cave woman to us? The contributors to this collection of essays believe that laughter does have a history and try to identify continuities and turning points of this history by studying a series of English texts, both canonical and non-canonical, from Anglosaxon to contemporary. As this is not another book on the history of the comic or of comedy it does not restrict itself to comic genres; some of the essays actually go out of their way to discover laughter at the margins of texts where one would not have expected it all – in Beowulf, or Paradise Lost or the Gothic Novel. Laughter at the margins of texts, which often coincides with laughter from the margins of society and its orthodoxies, is one of the special concerns of this book. This goes together with an interest in 'impure' forms of laughter – in laughter that is not the serene and intellectually or emotionally distanced response to a comic stimulus which is at the heart of many philosophical theories of the comic, but emotionally disturbed and troubled, aggressive and transgressive, satanic and sardonic laughter. We do not ask, then, what is comic, but: who laughs at and with whom where, when, why, and how?
